Which leads to my question:  In Photoshop, can you apply the Focus Magic 
plug-in through a mask?  The purpose would be to use it to sharpen the 
in-focus portion of the picture only, leaving the rest untouched.  Or, to 
apply a small "blur width" to the subject, then reverse the mask and do a 
second pass to bring a slightly out-of-focus background into better 
focus.  Is this possible in Photoshop, PS Elements, or other plug-in 
compatible programs?
Yes, you can selectively apply it with a mask, and even make it graduated.   

I found that most images can benefit from at least a 1 on the focus magic.  
think it can be run entirely outside of an editing program too.
