According to Vladimir Yuzhikov, in blurred state of an image “all the information just becomes redistributed in accordance with some rules and can be definitely restored with certain assumptions”. Keeping this principle in mind, he has developed SmartDeblur for Windows to restore the blurring problem in images.

To get started, you need to simply open a blurred image in SmartDeblur, and choose the blur defect type. Now this is an important task, after choosing the blur defect type you would be able to see various controls on the program like Radius, Smooth, Angle, Correction Strength, etc.

To get the best results, you need to manually move these sliders and adjust your image by simply watching the preview turning into a sharper image. Best results are gained by moving the radius slider between 25-30 and smooth to 29-30%. Rest all of the settings can be adjusted according to your image needs.

The motion blur which is very common and often occurs in our photos can now be restored with SmartDeblur. SmartDeblur shows a good support to restore the blurred images with motion defects. You simply need to adjust the length and the angle sliders to restore your motional blurred image.

The program has a nice and easy to use interface. All the controls are aligned properly in the top ribbon-alike bar with two different tabs, namely “Main” and “Settings”.

    SmartDeblur is slow and only works on low resolution photos. And the results, if any, are decidedly unimpressive. The reviewer claims it is “one of the best image de-blurring tools I have come across.” Don’t believe it. He needs to get his eyes checked.

    I had similar reaction; overpromised, underdelivered. I hate fooling with stuff only to find out it’s sicknin’

    Hi Les Barnum, You are getting unimpressive results just because you might not be entering proper settings, blur radius, correction strength. This tool works on the manual settings of the users. And as I’ve claimed, it is the best de-blurring tool, and it really is, all the de-blurring tools works almost same and manual settings are to be done according to the image.
