Adobe unveils ‘unblur’ filter for photographs

Adobe has unveiled a prototype ‘unblur filter’ that sharpens image quality by removing the blur that occur during a photo shoot.

According to a Daily Mail report, the new unblur filter software calculates the speed at which a photographer’s hands wobble. It then digitally ‘removes’ the shake from a photograph, on the click of a button.

The prototype filter was demonstrated at the Adobe trade show Max in Los Angeles this year, said the Daily Mail.

However, Adobe has not said that the filter may be integrated with its popular Photoshop software.

"Adobe Max Sneaks are an opportunity to showcase some of the projects we’re working on," an Adobe spokesperson told Mail Online.

"Some may or may not make it into future versions of our products."

Recently, Adobe had revealed that it is planning a major change of its sale strategy by opening up the online world for its most popular software such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver.

Bloomberg said that Adobe chief technology officer Kevin Lynch plans to release what Adobe calls its Creative Cloud software package early next year.

According to the new move, customers can rent programs on a monthly basis. They can also share their work across PCs and mobile devices using the new service.

Lynch said that the Creative Cloud products make it easier for Adobe users to share their ideas over the Internet, Lynch said in an interview.

"The reason we’re still here is we’re willing to change," Lynch said. "If you look at Adobe software historically, it’s a person using a computer to make something. It’s no longer a solo experience. You’re not alone in the cloud."

Earlier, the company had introduced Adobe Creative Cloud, a new initiative that the company says will redefine the content creation process.

Adobe Creative Cloud will become the focal point for creativity, where people can access desktop and tablet applications, essential creative services, and share their best work, the company said.

By early 2012, Adobe Creative Cloud is expected to include applications, the portfolio of Adobe Creative Suite tools as well as the six Adobe Touch Apps.
