Photo Editing: Using Focus Magic to Removing Motion Blur.
I often use Focus Magic to sharpen images. I prefer using this program since it uses a deconvolution algorithm to sharpen the image, rather than unsharpen mask (USM). Here is an example where I used Focus Magic to remove motion blur. On the down side, Focus Magic had not been updated and only runs as a 32-bit application. When using it as a plug-in in Photoshop CS5, I have to run the 32-bit version of CS5. For this image, I tried to improve the sharpness of the head, eye, and beak. The 2nd and 3rd image are 1:1 zooms of the head — first without removing the motion blur, and the second with the motion blur removed (350°, 9 pixels).
