Photoshop Unblur will be popular with UAV operators.

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.

Everyone that has an sUAS has a hard drive full of blurred images. If it works as well as it seems this plugin could dramatically increase the number of usable images available for post production per flight.

No word on a release date yet but we will watch closely and test it as soon as we can.
