What's best for image sharpening? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Without much effort I found several image sharpening "programs" that all claim to be the best and work in some unique way. In addition to unsharpen mask in PSE 2 there is Lab-Sharpen, Fhoto Fix, Ultrasharpen, Clarifier, and so on. What works best on sharpening images and improving focus on scanned photos? Is there any comparison I can refer to? Steven...

    Steven,
    I cannot answer your questions completely. However, recently someone posted a technique which is quite effective:
    1. Duplicate layer
    2. Go to filter>other>high pass with setting 10%
    3. In the layers palette on that layer, set "hard light" and apply opacity 30-70%

    You may wish to compare this to "unsharpen mask"

    Take a look at this: <http://www.lonestardigital.com/photoshop_quicktips.htm#clarifier>

    It seems to work for me.
