Topaz InFocus Sharpens Blurry, Soft Images

The new InFocus software from Topaz Labs promises clear and sharp photographs even if your camera captures soft images. Topaz InFocus boasts a new way to sharpen images by recovering blurred details and finding edges, not simply boosting edge contrast to create perceived sharpness, as has been commonly done.

“Topaz InFocus actually recovers blurred detail and finds edges, as opposed to other common sharpening methods which simply boost edge contrast to create a perceived sharpness,” said Ashley Robinson, product manager of Topaz Labs. “By mathematically reversing image blur caused by lens imperfections, atmospheric haze, camera sensor abilities, focus issues and camera shake, we are able to help photographers achieve detailed and naturally sharp images.”

InFocus is a plug-in that works with a variety of host programs including Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Aperture, iPhoto and Lightroom. It is compatible with Windows and Intel-based Macs. Topaz InFocus retails for $70, but is being offered at a one-time introductory price of $30 until December 3, 2010.
