Adobe has unveiled a mind-blowing technology at MAX 2011: a feature that de-blurs photographs, whether they’ve been taken by a shaky hand or are for some reason too soft, and restores them into sharp, clear images. The demo that excited the audience the most was the restoration of blurry text on a poster into crisp, easily readable type. The technology shown is a “sneak” and Adobe says that there’s no guarantee that a sneak will make its way into the next version of Photoshop or even the subsequent versions, but it is hard to see them leaving it out — that feature alone would probably move a tonne of product (and, being Photoshop, a tonne of torrents, too). You can check out video of the demo in the YouTube clip below — which, ironically, could use some deblurring technology itself.
