In every one of my product photos, there is at least some form of sharpening. Even though I try to always use the best camera settings yielding the most out-of-camera sharpness, a little computer sharpening never hurts.

That is exactly what this action does. Upon the press of the F2 key, the selected layer will be duplicated and a Smart Sharpen filter will be applied to the image. The settings for the sharpening are: 150% amount, 1.6px radius and 10% reduce noise. Lens Blur removal is enabled also. Shadows and highlights settings are untouched. These should work for most of your photos. What I like about this action is that, with the press of a single button, you can have an important step of your workflow completed. It really accelerates things up.
