Hey folks,
I was checking out the wildlife forum and came across a pretty cool plugin for PS and PS Elements (both Mac and PC) for improving those slightly out of focus shots that you just can't reshoot. Check out the following thread and Lin Evans reply about Focus Image. I downloaded the free trial version and liked it so much I bought it.

I've used this and it's okay. But don't expect miracles. Shots never seem to look natural or entirely in focus after processing. That said, I've only tried it a couple times, and there's a lot of settings. Might be user inexperience.

I think your close to right on with you assessment Nick, I did run some of the tutorials and I think in certain circumstances it could salvage a one of a kind shot. Your right though it won't produce miracles. Just one more tool in the arsenal IMO. It seemed most able to help with reducing the length of star trails in astrophotography which I dabble in from time to time.

smac, I tried the free download and ended up buying it , too. I got it for the same reason, to salvage some shots that aren't quite there focus wise. It also can sharpen photo's with inticate detail (such as bird feathers) pretty well , too.

Hey b,
It seems we are two birds of feather. I agree it's not going to salvage a crummy shot but I think it could help out in "slightly out" situations. I will try the shapren feature next.

BTW You've been posting some nice tely shots lately. Nice work. I am still looking forward to getting a LTZ10 tele as soon as they become available.

Good shooting,
smac
