Sometimes we take pictures of moving persons or objects and they come out as blurred or out-of-focus. Pictures can also become blurry because of unsteady hand while holding the camera. Usually the photographers tell you that there is nothing they can do for blurry images. But SmartDeblur can improve and fix the blurred or noisy images for you. It can remove many different types of blurs like Gaussian blur, complex motion blur and out-of-focus blur.
You can download SmartDeblur from the SmartDeblur website. It is available as a setup installer. The download size if around 10 megabytes, but it does not require any third party tools like Adobe Photoshop in order to work. After the installation, you can run it from its desktop shortcut. It would give you option to load a sample blurred image in the beginning, so that you can see how it works. But if you want to load your own blurred image, then you can click on the Open button and select your own picture.
The default settings should work for all your blurred or out-of-focus images, but you can adjust the settings to get better results. You can choose the defect type manually from the Gaussian blur or the out-of-focus blur, or let it detect automatically which type of defect the picture has. If you do not get good results, then you can select the Aggressive Detection checkbox but it may take a very long time and consume your PC resources extensively.
When all settings have been selected to your taste, you can click on the Analyze Blur button. It will start to analyze the picture for defects and apply deblurring effects to make changes. The resulting deblurred picture would be shown in the SmartDeblur window. You can save it to your hard disk by clicking on the Save button.
As you can see, the trial version of SmartDeblur puts watermark all over the deblurred picture with the notice of activating the full version. This is very annoying, but if you really want to fix some of the pictures that are blurred or are out-of-focus and have special meaning for you (like the pictures of wedding anniversary, birthdays and the pictures of long gone days), then you can buy SmartDeblur license and get rid of this watermark.
