Meet the GIMP #22: The Secrets of the Unsharp Mask

This week I go out of my comfort zone and cover the Unsharp Mask. I never found time to get into that thing. Black Art I thought - and well, it is a bit. But I had a good guide, Joel’s Blog told me everything I needed to know. So this show is basically a blatant rip off.

This is my first image I have ever tried USM on. Works quite good - it will not be the last. But I think this crop is way better:
