Make (some) blurry photos sharp

Blurity is a powerful yet easy-to-use tool for sharpening blurry digital images. Its sophisticated algorithms will often deliver far better results than the "Sharpen" function in your image editor, but a simple and straightforward interface ensures the program remains accessible by everyone.

To give the program a try, for instance, all you really have to do is open an image, and move a box to an area of your photo which represents the blur. Click "Process", wait a few seconds and you'll see the finished results.

In our experience this was often enough, but if you need more control then clicking "Advanced" reveals multiple sliders where you can tweak various program settings ("Blur size", "Solver filtering", "Solver iterations" and so on). This looks more complicated, but you don't have to understand what the various terms mean: just change a value, click Process again and look for any changes. (Although if you're willing to learn then the manual explains all.)

Does it work? We got varied results. Sometimes they were poor, or didn't seem to deliver anything more than you'd expect from a regular "sharpen" filter. But on other occasions the program really did work well, recovering far more detail than we'd thought possible. You'll have to try it on your own images, see for yourself.

Please note, though, the unregistered version displays a repeating watermark over the processed image. Purchase a license ($39) and this will disappear, though. And there's also a Blurity Pro version coming soon, which will add TIFF and batch processing support, although this seems relatively expensive at $149.

Verdict:

Blurity is easy to use and really can deliver excellent deblurring results with some images

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
