Unshake cleans up pictures in all of these cases, usually making the resolution of a blurred picture two or three times better than that of the original. I was first sure that I had a useful program on my hands when I used it on a picture of my Granddad, who is sadly no longer alive. I took it in 1969 with an old black and white camera, but I was new to photography, and I moved the camera. Suddenly in the year 2000, I could see my Granddad's smile - in effect I now had a new photo of a man who died a quarter of a century ago. I know it isn't perfect, the film in those days had bad contrast, but you can see his smile. Now with Unshake 1.4, I now have this;(I used "portrait" mode).
So that's why I'm enthusiastic about it, and why I'm offering it over the web; I do not have time to turn it into a sophisticated program, with all the bells and whistles which people expect of software nowadays, but I do want people to be able to use what I have, to rescue photographs of their own which matter to them. If anyone starts making money out of it, I feel I should get a cut, but I want ordinary people (I mean non-professionals, and those without access to much money) to be able to use it for nothing.
I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear -- "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.' Percy Bysshe ShelleyWhy Ozymandias, why Hamangia?
