How to set sharpening amount to taste

How do I set the amount of sharpening in Sharpener Pro 3.0 to my taste?

1. First, choose the desired output sharpening settings in the Output Sharpening section.
2. Next, adjust the Output Sharpener Strength slider in the Creative Sharpening section. Moving this slider to the left decreases sharpening while moving the slider to the right increases sharpening.

Please remember that what you see on your screen is not necessarily what you will get on your print out. This is because a typical monitor has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), while most printers print at a much higher resolution. This causes the image on a monitor to appear over sharp but properly sharpened in the print.

Use the Sharpening Soft Proof view mode to judge the sharpening effect applied to an image as it would appear when printed.
