Split Sharpness

This script lets you manipulate the image sharpness separately in the dark and light areas.

By default, the script runs in silent mode. If you want to customize the filter settings hold down [Ctrl] while starting the script.

As result you get two layers allowing you to adjust "lightening" and "darkening" aspects of the sharpening effect.

For example, reduce opacity of the "Sharpen (light)" layer to fade the lighter noise caused by the sharpening (screenshot).

To remove either the dark or light sharpening from a specific part of your image, click on the layer mask thumbnail and paint over the corresponding areas with black color.
