Out of focus is hard when the subject is so close so I went with some sharpen and some artistic license for a cross between soft, sharp and art.

Thanks brian. I didn't know that so much could be done with a photo. I never really worked with Photoshop (Even though I have the book and program) or any other programs. Please let me know where I can upload large files.

I didn't use photoshop on this. It is a program called Image Analyzer I downloaded from
http://meesoft.logicnet.dk/ It has some very good features, including deconvolution, which is what I used here.

The problem isn't that it's out of focus, it's the motion blur. You can tell by the curved streaks of the reflections in the eyes. Focus Magic is able to correct it somewhat.

Either way images like this are usually lost and need something artistic doing or the image scaling a lot to make up for the problem. Yes some tools will fix a certain amount of motion and some will attempt to sharpen areas to trick the eye in to feeling the out of focus is fixed but there is no magic repair button. If you search some of the old post on tis issue in this forum area you will see that. If you can replace main eye draw areas like the eyes you can make it feel better.

Hi Folks ... I'm a newcomer to the board, and this is my first post ... I'm no stranger to tweaking pics though. Corpsy is right on the money, there is motion blur ... I corrected that then added a bit of selective sharpening around the eyes and mouth. I almost borrowed the ear from stevekins post ( Good job there, love to know how you did it ) then I thought well I'm a newcomer, and it may not be etiquette to snag someone elses work. Any way here's my attempt. Hope you like.
