Abour a yr ago, Adobe ran an on-line add featuring a new app (for photoshop, I believe) that offered a tool for sharpening a phto that was completly unreadable and make it a very sharp clear picture. This new app was to be made available within the yr and advanced reviews said Adobe might only make it accessible through the Cloud apps only. What is the name of that app, is it now available, and how can I access it?

Adobe demonstrated a research technology for deblurring a while back, not a new product, or even a new feature.

The first version of that is now available in Filter->Sharpen->Shake Reduction.

Seems like a fantastic feature. At least release a Beta version and let's get it developed for the mass market user!!

I'm a C6 commercial user and readily volunteer as a Beta Guiney Pig. So, lets go get it done! I've got a warehous full of old photos ready to be deblurred.

Then, lets spin it into the video realm where it can really start to make some hay! Attached are a couple of files I would like to get cleaned up enough to show close-ups of faces, etc.

There is not enough resolution in that file to ever show faces.

You aren't going to get the CSI "make millions of pixels out of one pixel" filter.

So what can I get out of this picture, using CS6, that represents an improvement over what I have. (Note: This is not the original version, it has gone thru PSle for retouching. I can recopy the original, but it's not much better.)

That picture is so low resolution you'll be lucky to get anything. There are just barely shapes of the players -- it looks like a scan of an old photo, that should have been scanned at much higher resolution.
