    The Sharpen tab appears in DesignCentral, and a sampling marquee appears on the screen.

  3. Move the marquee over the area to be sampled and adjust its size.
  4. In the Sharpen tab of DesignCentral, adjust the following parameters.

    Amount and Radius

    Specifies the percentage of sharpening that will be introduced (values are 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%). Higher values will produce more sharp images.
