View Full Version : [ubuntu] JPEG editing software for pictures from camera

May 27th, 2011, 01:50 PM

I would like to ask if there exists any sort of software that can take a jpeg image that was taken out of focus by a digital camera and perhaps sharpen the details or automatically refocus the picture?

Thank you!!!

The default image viewer can do basic editing but for anything else like what you want, you need some image editing software. The GIMP tends to be the most popular which you will already have installed.

Theres lots of tutorials and help using the software online but I don't know any software that will actually do it for you ;-)

I don't even believe Photoshop can do that. What's the analogy I'm looking for... "You can't unscrmble an egg."

I was thinking that maybe if you had the RAW image (.RAW format) you 'might' be able to using a few tools in Photoshop, but you're not going to be able to get it very sharp due simply to the fact that digital information simply isn't there.

If it's slightly blurry, sometimes you can 'fix' it... but the general answer on this questions is.. NO.
