It depends on how you want to use the image. For example, 4896 x 3264 pixels 
would be a large image for use on a Web page.

Unsharp mask has ugly defaults for a lot of images, and you probably want to 
reduce the amount. I prefer Sharpen for a lot of cases, but it all depends on 
how you will use the image.
