Need help fixing this blurred/double image

I have a picture of my brother who recently passed away, I'm trying to fix one of the last pictures that was taken of him but it is heavily blurred/double imaged. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

You can find the image here:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Need help fixing this blurred/double image

This is a real shame, but there's no good fix for this really. The image is has a combination of camera movement, causing what is commonly called motion blur, and an overall loss of focus. The only filter process that is designed to fix this type of thing is found under filter/sharpen/smart sharpen, but results never look untouched and will create bad artifacts. I found the angle to be about a 50 degree motion blur, but there is also an overall blur to try and remove also.

Re: Need help fixing this blurred/double image

look at this link

SIGGRAPH Papers are a few years ahead of the game - they may get put into commercial software in the future. Sometimes the researcher will post his/her code for download - I don't see any in this case.

Re: Need help fixing this blurred/double image

jabberdoo,
The others are right, it is a hard one without spending an enormous amount of time on it. The basic corrections don't do it justice. I tried just to see if there was any difference in the subjects vs the background. Not much.
Anyway, here is one possibility. If you like it at all, just right click my name and send me an email.

Re: Need help fixing this blurred/double image

there's not much i can add to what has already been said - i've sharpened it up as much as i can without making it worse.

I think TommyO's done about as good a job there as you are going to get on it.

Maybe I exaggerated a bit the colors, but I think it gives a good idea of the person
