AKVIS Refocus 8.0: Fixing Out-Of-Focus Images and Applying Blur Effects


June 29, 2017 — AKVIS announces the release of AKVIS Refocus 8.0, the focus adjustment software for Windows and Mac. The new version provides a number of new features and improvements: possibility to save and load custom presets, batch processing for all modes, improved Crop tool, and other changes.


AKVIS Refocus is a powerful tool that improves clarity of any photo recovering lost image detail and applies different blur effects. The program can process the entire photo or bring into focus only the selected part to make the subject stand out against the background. It's also possible to add bokeh and lens blur effects to your images.

The program works in five modes:

- Refocus mode helps you improve the sharpness of the area you want in focus or sharpen the entire photo.

- Tilt-Shift mode creates a band of sharp focus and turns normal sized scenes into miniature-like.

- Iris Blur mode creates a blurred vignette effect keeping the center area in focus.

- Motion Blur lets you simulate the effect of motion in an image.

- Radial Blur simulates the result of a zooming or rotating camera.


Version 8.0 includes the possibility to save and load custom presets. Use this feature to restore presets after installing the software on a new system or even to share your experience with other users.

The Batch Processing feature is now available for all editing modes. Process series of photos in a single go!

The Crop tool has been improved. After cropping an image in the new version, the previously drawn strokes don't get lost.
