What's the Sharpen Tool?

The Sharpen tool increases contrast along edges to increase apparent sharpness. The more you paint over an area with the tool, the more sharpening increases.

Select the Sharpen tool.
Do the following in the options bar:
Choose a brush tip and set options for the blending mode and strength.
Select Sample All Layers to sharpen using data from all visible layers. If this is deselected, the tool uses data from only the active layer.
Select Protect Detail to enhance details and minimize pixelated artifacts. Deselect this option if you want to produce more exaggerated sharpening effects.
Drag over the part of the image you want to sharpen.

Enjoy.
