simply, add "unsharp mask" to the adjustment layers. that would be so usefull, because always finish my work by mergin all layers and give it a little sharpen.

in fact, any filter that could be add as a adjustment layer (like after effects) would be great.

IMO, this is a very specific thing to put in the already overloaded context menu... making a "Filter..." adjustment layer does sound useful, if very system heavy on recalculating every layer any time you change something.

If you are doing this on the regular and it's literally just "Merge layers" and Unsharp Mask, you can record an action and hotkey it...

You can also do it non-destructively if you convert the layers to a smart object instead of merging them and do a Unsharp Mask on that as a Smart Filter that you can change later.

i know that someone would said that.
but you think thats practical?
if i have a lot of layers, has to convert to smart object on each one, loosing the hability to edit them... please

as for the action, i have to do it everytime i modify something on the project, not practical at all

as more adjustment layers we can use, more editable and friendly work would be.


you think its a overloaded context menu? is as simple as group them like the filters
