Hello everyone,

can someone tell me if a photo taken out of focus can be fixed so that is in focus?

Thanks,
Sharon

Unfortunatly, probably not. Pictures that are out of focus or blurry are missing the detailed information that would be needed for a sharp image. Sharpening tools can adjust the contrast (blacks and whites), but are not adding any detail.

arknsawer,

it depends on how badly they are out of focus. there are some decent programs for handling this condition, Unshake, Focus Magic and probably some more. post an example of what you've got and we can help you better.

It is pretty optically blurred. This may be an improvement, but not that much. Regards, Murray

This is what I came up with using Vinther's Image Analyzer software and running the deconvulusion filter.

It was a bit hard working with a low res copy, but this is the result using CS2 motion blur filter, then unsharpen mask and final sharpening and noise removal in neatimage

Hey everyone,
Thanks for taking the time to work on my picture. I know it wasn't an easy picture to try to focus, but everyone don't a lot better than I had done on it. Thanks.
Sharon
