Sharpen

An image enhancement technique in which the contrast between specific pixels is enhanced.

The original image (left) is in focus, but the detail is slightly soft. The image has been sharpened a great deal and has a crisper look (right). The detail shows that over-sharpening can lead to some image distortion and unwanted texture.
