Interesting. I have never sharpened after re-sizing and my images seem pretty sharp?

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Try it. You will usually see a big difference. You usually do not need to use as much as you did on the full size image. Depending on how much you resize down, there can be a huge loss of sharpness.

I always give a kick if USM after resize and it makes a world of difference.

How much sharpening would you recommend for RP posting purposes?
