Hey fellow PSCers. I have this photo given to me of a mates daughter and well its real blurry. I have tried a few programs such as "focalblade" and "autosharp" to see if I can make it more in focus.
with very limited success.
Do any of you guys have a good method of de-blurring and image or can recommend software that would help me achieve this.

As the image is of a mates young daughter I wont post an image here but if you think you have the solution to my problem let me know and I will see if he will let me send it via email.

Thanks in advance and I am looking forward to a good solid PS chat topic for once.

Blue Very Happy

well, in 2024, time travel is invented and you could go back to when that photo was taken and make sure the focus is correct and.............uh, oops.....sorry, I wasn't supposed to talk about that.................

Blue, I found there is no one button solution to photo restoration. No program or plug-in that will get the job done fast and simple. The method I used long ago, was to de-blur a badly blurred photo, by just re-building it piece by piece, especially to the face. I'd borrow the nose of the same person preferably, from a similar photo and then montage that part back into the face of the blurred out face. After doing the same for cheeks, ears, eyes, forehead, etc, you wind up with fairly presentable, albeit, rebuilt image of the blurry person. The same tedious method can of course be done for the foreground and background, but I never bothered and just left most everything else defocused.

Crying or Very sad Sorry about there being no short cut solution Blue, however, I wish there were one.

You might suggest to your friend that he use a restoration service that could devote the time required to get the results he wants. That is, if the photo is important enough to him to warrant spending money on it. Not to mention, doing so, would also remove the responsibility of this time intensive free favor off your busy plate.

Just say'n. Very Happy

ok ok ok..............so you don't want to wait for time travel to be invented.... Laughing

something that works "sometimes"........if it's not a real close up....and slightly out of focus.....if you can somehow sharpen the eyes and mouth, it may give the appearance that the whole face isn't so out of focus.......doesn't work all the time, but just an idea............. Rolling Eyes

I think if the photo is important, I would use one of (or more of) the artistic filters, to totally change the image from photorealistic to art. That way the image of the girl remains, just the details of the blur will no longer be important
