OOps! I have not used this method for so long I had forgotten how so looked it up.
Firstly, my apologies; you cannot use a colour control point to sharpen as I wrote above....but you can use a selection control point. In fact you can use a selection control point to do anything in the "Adjust" menu and apply it to that point (or a group of points) rather than to the whole image. I prefer using a selection brush for this but there are instances where a selection control point produces superior results.

Once you have placed the selection control point and sized it, then go to the Edit List on the right hand margin of the NX2 window. the "adjust" section of the list will highlight the selection point you have just placed. you can adjust opacity, the masking method required, feathering etc..... near the bottom of the box is the "Select Adjustment" drop-down box. If you click on this you can select "Focus" and then the sharpening method of choice. I routinely use "Unsharp Mask".


Going back to the colour control points....normally when you place a colour control point and click on it, 4 sliders will appear. Normally by default, these will be for size, brightness, contrast and saturation. Immediately below the bottom slider is a small black triangle. If you click on this, additional colour control sliders will appear.

Have fun practicing!
