When I use the unsharp mask to sharpen a photo, once I get everything adjusted like I want it, and then hit apply, it reverts back to before the sharpening.

Hi phetaroi and Welcome to the Forums,

I'm not finding that here on Mac or Windows.  The effect is applied when i press Apply.  

As you are clicking Apply, i take it you use the Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask option and not the Live Filter version? (if live filter try viewing the image at 100% after you've applied the effect.

Yes, I am using the Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask option.  And it doesn't do it consistently.  Just once in a while on certain photos.  It's weird.

Are you viewing at 100% zoom when you apply the filter?

You really need to view at 100% when comparing before and after. If you duplicate your layer first, then apply the filter, you can toggle the visibility of the sharpened layer to compare them (at 100% of course).

Thank you.  But I think you misunderstand what was happening...I probably didn't explain it well.

I will do the sharpening.  I hit apply.  It's done.  And about 2 seconds later it reverts back to what it was before the sharpening.  You can actually see the sharpness suddenly degrade.

Does the Sharpness filter action disappear from your History panel?

@phetaroiThe only thing I can suggest is that you make a screen recording including your image (at 100%) and the history panel.
