OOOOPS! Sorry Darlene, let me try and clarify.
Sharpening is more art than science, even though there is science behind the art!!
I primarily use PS CS3, but just have added LR3 to the mix so my workflow at the moment is evolving. I believe you use PS Elements do you not? The places and names you find things under are different between Elements and full fledge Photoshop. For me the sharpening is found under filters and you have several choices in the menu that drops down when you hover the mouse over the sharpen category. Using my wife’s computer to access Elements 6, I see that under the Enhanced portion of the tool bar you have two choices of unsharp mask and adjust sharpness. Adjust sharpness is a limited version of Smart Sharpen that’s available in the full Photoshop version.
Bicubic Sharper is an option available with the image size routine. When you bring up the image size box, at the bottom you should see Bicubic. If you click the down arrow to the right of it you should see a bunch of choices for the different interpolation algorithms. We photographers are mainly only interested in the bicubic ones. Some people choose to use bicubic smoother for up or down sampling. But the Adobe recommendation is to use bicubic smoother for up sampling and bicubic sharper for down sampling.
