Abode has shown photographers a new Photoshop anti-blur feature which promises to sharpen blurry pictures, after they have been captured.

Adobe claims that the technology, demonstrated at the Adobe Max 2011 conference in the United States, will also prove useful for sharpening images of text, and shaky images captured using a mobile phone.

There is no word as yet on whether the feature, which uses a ‘new algorithm’, will be available to consumers.

An Adobe spokesperson told us: ‘The Max Sneaks are an opportunity to showcase some of the projects we’re working on. Some may, or may not, make it into future versions of our products.’
