Adobe is developing an upcoming feature for Photoshop that could end the problem of blurred photos forever.
The new feature was demoed at the company’s MAX 2011 event, drawing gasps of amazement from a crowd that witnessed a blurred photo, retouched and perfected in seconds. Advanced algorithms calculate the movements of the camera at the time the image was taken, enabling the user to ‘fix’ the image by unblurring it – saving what would ordinarily be a disappointing, dud image.
I saw something like this on a military secrets program several years ago, being used to track bullets mid flight so that sentry guns could lock onto the source instantly. The software didn't need to see the bullet, just a minute (almost invisible) blur/flash/shockwave on a single frame was enough for the software to pinpoint origin despite movement.
Nice to see the rest of the world catching up to military driven inventions :D
Photoshop continues to astonish me, though after Content-Aware Fill I assumed it would eventually be able to do anything.
Pretty soon you won't even have to take the picture. Photoshop will just figure out when you would have wanted to make the exposure (if you can decide that) and it will create an image from other pictures you would have taken. ;)
