Please help me find a script

Post#1 by Lenny » 27 Oct 2019, 00:32


Last week when I found Gimp Learn, I read everything I could. I remember a script or procedure that converted slightly out-of-focus photos to focused with a very good effect. A couple of members showed their success with photos. I seem to remember a squirrel being brought into focus.

Now that I could use it on a shaky photo, I can't find that post. I've looked at all the showcase photos, twice, and my eyes are crossed from all the spinning, jumping, and scrolling things. I've looked through Gimped and Gimped photos, several albums -- nothing.

Does anyone know of that post, or know of the script that may have been used? Have I imagined all of this?

Lenny, is this your cute little chipmunk?
Even if not, a lot of info about deblurring the photo is given. Hope it helps!

I do not know how blurred your photo is. Have you tried unsharp mask which works nicely unless the blur is pretty bad? Your could post the image and someone will probably help you.

This is what you remember: http://refocus.sourceforge.net/ not a script, a compiled plugin and the most up-to-date version that I know of: https://www.deviantart.com/photocomix-r ... S-81588756

I just tried it in Win10/Gimp 2.10 and it does work...but...it comes from an era when images were much smaller. Do not expect wonderful results. You might get equal or better results using Filters -> enhance -> Wavelet Decompose.

@rich2005, That's it! I thought it was posted on Gimp Learn, but maybe I followed links to the outside world. At my age, I'm just glad it wasn't imagined. Thank you so much. I'll also try your suggestion for Wavelet Decompose.

And thank you also to @Pat625, funny that both attempts to focus were on rodents. I'll try your suggestion of unsharp mask as well. It's always good to have several tools in one's arsenal.

With all the time spent searching, I could have tried to take better photos. Too lazy to drag out my tripod. Plus, this will give me a chance to learn a new technique. Thanks again folks.

Don't be hard on yourself, Lenny. I can screw up any photo with or without a tripod!
Just not meant to be a photographer. Sooooooo, now I have photos to fix!

Also, on the rat theme . . . . I took my cat to the vet yesterday and another patient(s) was a lady with two rats. They were definitely domesticated! Just getting old and needing a tune up!

@Lenny , There are plenty of options in Gimp to apply when it comes to improving focus.

@rich2005 suggested the great Filters -> enhance -> Wavelet Decompose
@Pat625 indicated the unsharp mask; equally a great tool.
For an image like that of a squirrel, I take another option: G'MIC -> Details -> Sharpen [Inverse Diffusion]

There are many others, it is at the discretion of the customer.
All that is great is greater than all that is small.

Good to know, @Krikor, yet another arrow in the quiver.

Thanks @Wallace, that looks promising.

With the progress I was making on my blurry photo, I think I would have succeeded sometime in the year 2045. So, I grudgingly dragged out the tripod, coaxed a few photos from a better camera which suffers from a sticky shutter. I finally got a good clear shot and got my photo posted on another forum before the topic became ancient. Seems it was a camera resolution issue as well as my shakiness.

These techniques will all be used to see which one provides the best outcome for that obstinate photo, when I have time to play with them.
