    I need some "expert" to look at a picture I took this weekend that is really out of focus and tell me if there is anything I can do. I am willing to upload the photo here or email it to some brave soul. ;)

    I'm not sure if anything can be done to salvage the picture of this gorgeous girl, but I've got to try.

    thanks to anyone who might be willing to help me out.

    I wasn't aware of a place on this forum to ask such a question, so if this is posted in wrong place, I'm sorry.:confused:

    Its unlikely to save out of focus photos. Upload it to www.photobucket.com and post the IMG code here and someone'll let u know for sure.

    no, sorry . that is unsavable. as you can see, the focus fell on the desk behind her. Nothing you can do except retake.

    You were too busy looking at the girls panties in the drawer to notice your focal point..

    Bahaha.

    Sorry, but out of focus pictures can never be fixed.

    Nope.. nothing can be done. Anything you ever see on TV like that is a total load of crap.

    About the only hope for anything salvageable (it's really not, I have to agree with those above) would be to run some pretty aggressive sharpening and then shrinking the image to hide most of the flaws. You might be able to recover a myspace/facebook/forum icon out of it:
