    Not only that, but the Adobe Photoshop gurus discussed this recently on this forum and said it just ain't going to happen.

    The question is, how long are you prepared to wait for the layer to recalculate every time you change something underneath it?

    There are plenty of ways to make a sharpening layer. The problem is that you need to recalc that sharpening layer every time something on which it depends, changes. Using a manual sharpening layer, you can decide when and whether to recalculate it. As an Adjustment Layer, it either recalcs whenever the dependency changes, or you have to add UI to Adjustment Layers to control their updating...

    LP has special "Sharpening" layers into which you paint where you want sharpening.

    You can do a similar thing thing in photoshop by painting your USM in using the History brush at different opacities in Luminosity mode.

    Do it on a spare Merged layer so that you can mask parts of it; adjust the layer opacity; or trash the layer at a later date if you wish.
