sharpening (and unsharpmask) - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I don't have the time (or energy) to individually and manually sharpen all my images. If I use unsharp mask, is there an ideal setting for all three factors in the dialog box for my 6 megapixal + images? Related question. I have clicked on the "sharpen more" button with some success. Does anybody know the "unsharpen mask" equivalent factors for the "sharpen" and "sharpen more" one-click buttons?...

    Harinam,

    All images should NOT require the same (or any, in most cases) of sharpening, thus you'll cause as much of a problem with a universal sharpening as not doing it at all. If your images all DO need sharpening, I'd take a heavy look at your photography technique or the camera taking the photos. Remember that sharpening is an EFFECT and is never going to give true quality over the original. It may look better, but actually is just recoloring pixels so there is less adjacent contrasting tones of that color.
