I can never remember if Unsharp Mask is legal in Minimal editing.

You may "sharpen your image using any global, non-selective sharpening tool"

No it is not legal though you can use Filter -> Sharpen. -> Sharpen no other sharpen tools beside this.

Unsharp mask is selective editing because you can choose which areas of the images to affect, and how, with the sliders.

Correct. Not correct, I misspoke. USM used to be illegal in minimal because it required the use of a new layer, but that restriction is not in the current ruleset. The fact that we can adjust USM with a slider isn't relevant, it's still not "selection" in the sense that we worry about it. My apologies for any confusion.

To recap: USM SHARPENING IS LEGAL IN MINIMAL EDITING.
