Thumbs up Topaz Labs InFocus, a new deconvolution based sharpening plugin

Hi folks, FYI,

Finally a dedicated sharpening tool that also works on 64-bit platforms.
It also gives some control to reduce potential sharpening artifacts. When used on a Luminosity blending Layer, it gives an immense amount of control over what gets sharpened, and how much.

While there is no option to use user-defined point spread functions (PSFs), there is a mode that attempts to construct such a PSF from image content. It does need some (blurred) edges in the image to estimate the PSF. It's slightly less effective than a custom PSF, but still gives very acceptable results, e.g. restoring sharpness from diffraction blur or other complex PSFs.
Example of how to use blur estimation.

If you do what you did, you'll get what you got.
