A simpler method, a basic USM in Photoshop:
Open the image in Photoshop,
Press F7 to locate and view the Layers panel,
Duplicate the background layer (Hold CTRL and hit J)
Zoom to 100% (CTRL-1)
Select Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp mask from the menu
Set maximum sharpening Amount, set the other settings to 0
Pull up the Radius setting until you see “Too much” sharpening appearing. If you go back one step the level should be “too little” – but leave it at the step above.
Now pull down on the Amount until you see a nice level of sharpening, or just a tad more than required.
Next to last, pull up on Threshold to remove sharpening from the out of focus areas.
Last, adjust Opacity and Fill for the layer – to level out the effect in a pleasing way.
If the overall effect needs to be tuned down for PORTIONS of the image, use a mask on the sharpening layer.

NOTE: required sharpening results and settings are dependent on the image size, content, previous processing and what you aim to do with it.
