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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
