Topaz Labs release InFocus for photos that just out of focus

Topaz Labs InFocusTopaz Labs does it again. They have added another powerful plugin to their collection.  This one is called InFocus.  It may look like Adjust or Detail but it is quite different.  Have a look.

Topaz InFocus is a completely new sharpening solution designed to restore image clarity, recover lost detail and refine with micro-contrast detail enhancement. The range of achievable sharpening possibilities have been dramatically improved and simplified with this new tool, allowing users to easily increase the sharpness and definition of any image.

  • Simply and effectively improve image clarity.
  • Approximately reverse blur, recovering “lost” image detail.

      This is a Photoshop plugin, but with the use of Topaz Labs Fusion (free) it will work with many other software. I linked to Fusion in the post.

    Of course the MOST wonderful thing about Topaz Labs is that there’s no way to get live tech support. There’s no phone number on their website, and if you have a problem that needs immediate attention, you’re just ….. out of luck. Send them an email, they say, I did that and got no response. Caveat emptor.
