Adobe MAX 2011 demo unblurs real photos

Adobe used one of its sessions at its MAX 2011 event to swing attention away from creative tablet apps towards a new technology that could reduce or sometimes eliminate the blur in photos. A "sneak" of an algorithm for Photoshop can determine what the movements of the camera were when the shutter was open, giving it a way to correct the shot. The test plugin lets users choose to sharpen just a small piece of the photo and optimize it for common needs like text.

The concept doesn't need special metadata and can work on just about any image. Adobe has conceived of it as particularly useful for those shooting photos with smartphones, where image stabilization and other hardware correction tricks aren't as common.

As a preview, there's no indication when the feature might roll into Photoshop. Adobe usually tends to implement well-received experimental features like Content Autofill comparatively quickly, often in the next major release of Creative Suite. [via TNW]

    24, NCIS, and just about every procedural show - they do this every week. You mean it's not real?
