Sharpening software

Is there something now out there apart from PS and Lightroom that does miracles with blurry photographs?

I have a bundle of original WWII photographs which could do with editing.

Nothing comes immediately to mind. If all you want to do is sharpen there is the free Nik suite of plug ins as an alternative but you will still need Photoshop or Lightroom to run them. There are alternative editing programmes such as On1 but there is still a bit of a learning curve involved.

If you are happy to post an example then we may be able to advise further. I'm guessing you are looking for a one click solution or have I misinterpreted your post

Not sure if this meets your requirements but you could download the shareware (free) photo editing programme called GIMP?

Here's a youtube link for the sharpening aspect of the programme. Not too sure how good it is as I've never tried it myself but might be worth a punt!

Not tried it myself but I do use other Topaz products which work well.

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.
