Re: Blurry photo

If you are using Photoshop, try the Smart Sharpen Filter with Gaussian Blur as the type.

Re: Blurry photo

I used Focus Magic to repair this photo. The setting was "focus", blur width 5 pix, amount 100%. I didn't try to refine it any so I think that it can be a bit better. Hope this helps!

Re: Blurry photo

You could use a byRo Razor Sharpening action.

Re: Blurry photo

The photo below is the result of two applications of a third party filter called Focus Magic. No other work done on the photo.

Re: Blurry photo

Hi. I've looked at the efforts of the various software used here. Sorry, there is absolutely no substitution for getting the focus right in the camera. Nothing is going to be good enough to give you a satisfactory result. Its unfortunate, but there it is.

focus magic is good. it's also not free. unshake also does a good job. it's free. here's the link: http://www.hamangia.freeserve.co.uk/

offhand, i'd say 'satisfactory result' is up to tigerphoto in this case.
