Also keep in mind that Photoshop's new smart sharpen feature can also perform a deconvolution. Interesting find though, thanks for the heads up. What if I want to select just the specific shade of gray I click on in the gradient and nothing else? That way, the background pair of over- and under-exposed shots line up perfectly.
The updated program has also brought an auto detect mode that tries to decide what some of the best settings are for the best result, which is good because the free version relies more on your own trial and error with the sliders. Try getting that from other software companies! In the example below, a four pixel shift at an angle of 85 degrees makes quite a difference. Lock the camera on a tripod if possible, focus on a foreground object, and take a shot. It took 17 shots to move the depth of field across the shell from front to back. It can repair both out-of-focus blur and motion blur camera shake in an image.
If we had selected the Attempt to Automatically Align Source Images option in the Load Layers dialog box, which we looked at a moment ago, Photoshop would have automatically tried to align the images for us as it loaded them in. When we look at a scene—for instance, a landscape with flowers near us and mountains in the distance—nearly everything appears tack sharp because our eyes are constantly adjusting focus. If that sounds pretty amazing, well, the result can be just as impressive as it sounds. Be careful though, because the default settings are often way too strong.

In addition to that, its simplicity aids all user types to get around it, regardless of their experience. As you only get 10 refocused images in the trial, make sure to move the red box around all areas of the picture that matter before clicking the traffic light to process and save. In other words, it actually refocuses blur, rather than creating a halo which the eye interprets as sharpness.
In that case, I'd set my Tolerance value to 0, which tells Photoshop not to include any pixels in the selection except those that are an exact match in color and tone to the area I click on: Increasing or decreasing the Tolerance value has a big impact on which pixels in the image are selected with the Magic Wand. I'm going to buy this one. With Contiguous selected, as it is by default, Photoshop will only select pixels that fall within the acceptable tone and color range determined by the Tolerance option and are side by side each other in the same area you clicked on. It can repair both out-of-focus blur and motion blur camera shake in an image. Back in the Load Layers dialog box, the names of all the images you selected appear in the box below the Use option.
