"does what it says excellently"

September 04, 2011  |  By trackend1

 |  Version: Focus Magic 3.0.1a

Pros

easy to use, results are very good, cost is very good for the results achieved

Cons

It's screen appearance be lies its ability

Summary

Dont be fooled by what seems to be on the face of it a cheap jack program as all the cleaver stuff takes place out of sight and the control screen looks a bit mundan however with a reasonable pixel count image in its grasp this program delivers really impressive results.
Obviously it can only do so much and if you expect Hassablad results after giving it a £90 compact produced image to work with you could be disapointed although it will still improve things a lot.
It gives you enough sliders & drop downs to maintain overall image control but still keeps it very easy to use. I have had some images taken at a WW2 airshow ( so slow shutter speeds of 160th-200th for prop blur) and what would in the past have been deleted are now really usable keepers.
Try it as a trial download you get 10 cracks at playing with images before you have to pay a penny so whats to loose (and it uninstalls cleanly should you not like it)

"Effective, a bit pricey, no backup"

April 07, 2009  |  By bertiefd

 |  Version: Focus Magic 3.0.1a

Pros

Very effective at correcting slightly out of focus or motion blurred images. Using at a low setting (1 or 2) instead of unsharp mask for final sharpening gives excellent results.

Cons

Zero technical support. Emails are ignored.

Summary

Effective programme, but only marginally better than cheaper competition - google for image sharpeners. Although there is said to be a lifetime update service, a system crash will invalidate your key and requests for a replacement will not be actioned. Effectively your licence will last until you have a system crash.

Updated on Apr 7, 2009

48 hours after requesting the replacement key (promised by the site withinn 15 minutes) a new key has finally arrived. I remain impressed with the software, but I am still not happy with the level of support.
