Photoshop image deblurring – don’t expect it to launch with CS6 | Practical Photoshop
In an interview with Adobe’s Senior Product Manager Brian O’Neil Hughes, the Photoshop team’s frontman stressed that it’s early days for the technology.
“The reason that [demo] captured the imagination was that it’s a problem that everybody has,” O’Neil Hughes is quoted as saying. “Correcting [motion blur] has been the holy grail for some time. It was a sneak peek that we explicitly asked not be reported. But someone reported it and what’s missing from that video is that is just internal technology we’re working on.”
“There are a lot of people working on it, but it’s a tough nut to crack, especially with the expectations that people have. When you show people a magic trick, people expect you to come through.”

So, there you go. Deblur is very unlikely to make it into Photoshop CS6. Not that that’s surprising – when Adobe demonstrated it at MAX 2011, they stressed how early this tech was.
If you want to stay up-to-date, visit the personal website of Jue Wang, a senior researcher at Adobe who’s developing the image deblurring prototype. He’s looking for image submissions to test the feature on – see the results achieved when Robert Capa’s famous blurred shot of the 1944 Omaha Beach landing is run through the tech, below. //You can see more results here.
