Intelligent Imaging Solutions has released piccure, billed as "the first fully automated software tool to correct camera shake." As a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop (CS4 and above) and Photoshop Elements (version 7 or later), piccure automatically detects and corrects image blur resulting from involuntary camera movement. The software runs locally, on a standard computer, and users do not need to worry about their privacy: piccure does not upload any images into the cloud to be processed by some company’s servers, the developers say. The Photoshop plug-in is available for $99, while a simpler version designed for Elements (without multiprocessor support) can be purchased for $49.

Intelligent Image Solutions are not so intelligent - they fix blurred images taken on snowy mountain slope under broad sunlight!

Dear Red,

What ximul meant was that shaking is a much frequent occurence in low-light situations which are much more difficult to correct. Who's the moron now?
