Sharpening Image Areas

When you use the sharpen tool on the image you are brushing sharpness into the stroked areas. The width of the sharpen tool strokes is set by the size setting in the options toolbar. The stroke width should be appropriate to the size of the area you want to sharpen. Keep in mind that oversharpening an image can lead to too mouch noise which causes the image to look grainy.
