Focus Magic Portable uses advanced forensic strength deconvolution technology to literally “undo” blur. It can repair both out-of-focus blur and motion blur (camera shake) in an image. It is the only software that can significantly recover lost detail from blurry images. In the past, Unsharp Mask was seen as the best way to sharpen photographs which were a little blurred. It increases the contrast of the edges of an image to make it look sharper. There are many programs which have Unsharp Mask (or Sharpen) included, and there are even some dedicated Unsharp Mask programs. The mathematics is quite simple, and it runs quite fast. Focus Magic however doesn’t use the Unsharp Mask principle to sharpen an image. It uses advanced deconvolution to reverse the way in which the image got out of focus to restore the original “in focus” image as much as possible.
Now The World’s Most Accurate Sharpening Software. We spent an hour taking deliberately blurred photos of a porcelain parrot (see left). This included out-of-focus images and motion blurred images with many different degrees of blur. We then fed them through lots of software applications. A small zoomed-in section of the image is displayed for your comparison.
Forensic-Strength for Out-of-Focus Blur
Focus Magic Portable is the only software available that can recover the license plate shown. It uses the most sophisticated deconvolution technology to literally “undo” blur.
Forensic-Strength for Motion Blur
Here Focus Magic is used to recover the license plate of a car speeding along causing motion blur. Again, this license plate can only be recovered with Focus Magic.
Repair Old Photos
Use Focus Magic to enhance old historic photos which have high sentimental value. From the examples in the comparison above, you can see that Focus Magic has the most accurate algorithm for reversing the blur in a photo.
Repair Special Photos
For this photo, the camera focused on the background instead of the foreground (see full photo). With Focus Magic you can switch the depth-of-field around so that the focus is on the correct subject.

You only ever need to purchase Focus Magic once – even when we make upgrades or you change your computer. It’s yours to keep for life
Ease of Use
For Motion Blur, select the direction and then the distance. For Out-of-Focus Blur, increase the Blur Width until the image looks the sharpest
