gronfors,

I'm with photoshop from 10 yrs. but still I will say "NO".

May be someone can do but I do not hope that it is possible.

Wht you want to unblur this ?

It is possible, but not easy. You know the font and can find the amount of blurring, so you could blur alphabets and letter combinations / words and write a software to compare those to the original. I've seen similar things done to blurred text.

Hollywood might lead us to believe it's simple...

Hi, i'm a newbie here, but I've been working with Computer Graphics software from both a creative & technical aspect since pre-Photoshop time (Time Arts Lumena, AT&T Rio, etc...) so, I'm going to add my 2 cents worth to the replies, if you guys don't mind...

Recently a child porn pervert's face "twirled" in a photo was "DE-twirled" by Interpol so he could be identified & arrested --- so with unlimited money & time (almost) anything is possible, but for the ordinary person it's not really practical. Rovis is absolutely right though ... if it is possible that's the best approach and something the CIA or FBI would do.

We've all seen a TV show CSI or lab tech zoom in on a piece of a grainy, fuzzy image & with a few clicks, convert it to a clear facial reflection or license plate -- mostly BS -- if enough pixels are missing, or randomized thoroughly, there is no way to get it back to a point where there would be no reasonable doubt in a courtroom ... unless you're a Hollywood script writer ; )

Just a thought. If you want to know the topics that's been blurred. If the site's still up you have enough info under the blurred text to do a search in the forum and find the original post.
