Holy shit, I didn't think this was possible.

This is amazing, wow. Unblur, it's magic.

Seriously, now I can finally take photos with my crappy camera without having to worry anymore. I couldn't find anything about price, though.


I can't come up with a decent saying, since everyone copyrights everything.

They should create that feature for video media, that way I can unblur the demonstration.

Anyway, I am genuinely impressed with that sort of functionality as a fairly simple feature. Sharpen hardly ever makes things look better IMO.

It doesn't necessarily fix poor quality blurry photos, It simply corrects motion blur as if your wrist shook while holding the camera. It will be integrated in a future version of photoshop.

Does little when you buy your wife a fantastic camera, can't shoot for shit without wobbling her hands, and ruins every photo of the vacation. If anything, the advice should be to buy a better tripod. As you can see in the video, the pictures taken are pretty high quality already, just motion blurred from shaky hands.

I doubt unless your wife is Michael J. Fox (ohhh i'm an asshole) the wobbling would be so drastic. But I suppose if that was really a problem then it would be useful.

I think sharpen adds to a picture, such that if you blur -> sharpen -> blur -> sharpen, you won't end up with the same thing you had originally. This is actually correcting for blur "at the source," if you will.

True, but most people don't want to dish out a couple hundred bucks to professionally un-blur one photo. And the differences are relatively indistinguishable unless the picture in question was taken by a schizophrenic chimpanzee.

There's a difference between a stationary blur and a motion blur. This is only going to alleviate the latter, and only to a certain extent. My general reaction is meh. It's cool, but nothing I didn't expect to already exist as a third party plugin for photoshop. Call me when they have a tool for eliminating stationary blurs. Then I'll be impressed.

Was that just a very detailed scenario you came up with out of the blue? Or are you married?

And yeah, this isn't just sharpen, this corrects blur from motion while the shutter closes. It's awesome.

I bet it will turn out like the content aware filling tool. When they first showed that, everyone was like "WOW!" and then it turned out to be so bad it wasn't actually usable in practice.

They show these images that have been specifically picked for use with that tool, because they come out best. 99% of images will however look like shit with it.

It's also just for motion blur when you have moved the camera, it does not 'enhance' the image in any way, it just does a motion blur in the opposite direction.

To be honest content-aware fill is great if you know how to use it. It saves a lot of time and effort for graphic designers, and I've used it many times to excellent effect in organically replicating a background after cutting something out of a picture. It is much more naturalistic than I can typically simulate by cloning. When I use CS4, I often will try to make use of the content-aware fill only to be disappointed once I remember that it's a CS5 only feature.

You know, this would actually be a brilliant tool for law enforcement agencies were there the need to actually do that some time. Good idea!

If you can afford photoshop (assuming you're not being cheap) you can afford a better camera which has unblurring already.

I wish I could get my hands on some before and after images as opposed to the video, which could use a 'unblur' itself even in HD. >:(
