Get unprecedented image clarity and rescue blurred photos with image deconvolution technology.

The smartest and simplest sharpening solution

The Topaz InFocus plug-in pairs the latest advancements in image deconvolution technology with superior sharpening capabilities to improve overall image quality by reversing blur while restoring, refining and sharpening image detail.

Whether employing it to make an unusable image good, a good image better or giving a great image that extra edge, Topaz InFocus produces unparalleled sharpening and deblurring results that add distinction and definition while accentuating key details.


  • Ability to restore color and detail (obscured by natural haziness) to image features.
  • Micro-contrast tools for fine detail enhancement.
  • Built with advanced deconvolution technology to help in reversing the effects of blur.
  • Estimate blur tool for unknown / complex blur types.
  • Targets four types of blur: generic, out-of-focus, straight motion and unknown.
  • Easily integrates into any part of your post-processing workflow.

Better sharpening for digital images

Most sharpening methods (like Unsharp mask) simply detect the edges within an image and increases the perceived sharpness by creating more drastic tonal transitions (contrast boost). Many times, this boost in edge contrast can produce harsh unappealing results.

Topaz InFocus uses image deconvolution technology to mathematically reverse image blur, increasing the actual sharpness and rendering a more natural result. InFocus can enhance the clarity of an already well-focused as well as deblur an out-of-focus or motion blurred image.


With an intuitive interface and a one-click Blur Estimation feature, Topaz InFocus has made it easier than ever to achieve a crisp, clear and vivid image. A simple sharpening solution, InFocus can instantly transform a throw-away image into a keeper!


Get unparalleled sharpening and deblurring tools with Topaz InFocus. Featuring an automatic blur estimation, InFocus recovers lost detail, refines with micro-contrast enhancement and restores clarity to blurry images.


Using advanced deconvolution technology to approximately reverse the blur process, forensic and police photographers will highly benefit from the Straight Motion and Out-of-Focus options in Topaz InFocus.


Give your images that extra edge. Unique micro-contrast refinement enriches subtle structure details, while additional sharpening tools allow for further image enhancement.

    still learning

    So far not very good results but on a learning curve and i am sure will improve. I’m using CS4 – perhaps I need to upgrade that.

  2. 4

    As good as all the Topaz products

    In truth I have not used it extensively, however the times I did, (like all the Topaz products) I found it easy to use and I obtained the desired results with a lot less effort than other methods. I use it on digitised medium format photos and am very pleased with the program.

    Quick and easy and adjustable . . .thew perfect tool.

    I am very impressed with this product so much so that I have bought it. I’m going to buy the rest of the program slowly as I save the money . . . . ZAR Rand makes it expensive.

    Thanks for making life easier.

    Like all Topaz filters

    I have never been disappointed with any of Topaz’s filters, and INFOCUS fits that bill They are as simple as one wants as a novice or complex as one would want as a professional photographer. Kudos to Topaz Labs

    Definitely worth having in your Workflow!

    I have developed a workflow that ALWAYS includes two specific Topaz Plug-Ins for Photoshop CC 2014: Topaz DeNoise 5 and Topaz InFocus. I can’t live without them. I shoot mostly in RAW but they work just as well for JPEG. I always remove noise as one of the very first steps in my workflow before doing anything else. Topaz DeNoise does a fantastic job of this with a tremendous amount of control as well. I then apply Topaz InFocus. It is truly amazing how much this improves my shots right up front. The one suggestion that kept me from giving it the 5th star is that if you use a high setting, it tends to introduce some artifacts. This is easily solvable by just lowering the strength a bit but maybe a future update will improve this already great product even more.

    I strongly recommend that everyone include at least these two Topaz Plug-Ins for starters and then add from there for all your post-processing tasks.

    Not effective for me.

    I’ve tried InFocus on a variety of images and was not overly impressed with the results. For me, the plug in is difficult to determine the results achieved before committing to the changes. In fairness, I probably should spend more time reviewing the tutorials than I have. As is, I rarely use it and found it to be an iffy purchase for me.

  7. 4

    Excellent product

    I’m pleased to report that inFocus has been a godsend – it saved a number of photos that were not quite tack sharp, but close enough to fix with the product. Bravo!

    Easy to use but lousy results

    I have to be honest, this is the worst.

  9. 4

    Works great on a lot of Photographs but no all.

    In Focus will improve most Photographs. Some amazingly well. Others not so great. It depends on the photograph. In Focus is well worth the investment.

    So far, so good...

    I am still learning the program but so far I have achieved very good results. I suppose I should read the instructions one of these days…

    It isn’t a magic wand but, makes a huge difference to some of my slightly out of focus photo’s.

    Useful with care

    InFocus is useful deconvolution software. It is much better than Photoshops Smart Sharpen and easier to use than the various options available from more technical applications like astrophotography. The software could be improved with options for iterations and choices and combinations of algorithms, wavelet, Richardson Lucy etc. On my set-up the software crashes on larger files , say, over 500MB but works OK before interpolation.

  13. 5

    Really saves photos that might otherwise be deleted.

    This software is fairly easy to use, even though it might seem confusing, seek out a few tutorials from Topaz and others to see how easy it is to use. It is especially good at reducing camera shake. I retouched a few photos of a friend who had terrible camera technique and as a result, has some awful photos. I had some doubts but most of them were significantly improved with InFocus.

    Superior Sharpening Foundation

    I use InFocus on all of my photos. It creates a great sharpening foundation. I can use Detail if I want more definitive sharpening, but InFocus is usually the first filter I add to my photos. Highly recommended.

    Precision focus in seconds

    After I have processed the image, I go to Infocus for the final step in adjustment. Any error I make can be quickly erased and I can start over. Images printed have been very good.
