You may be onto something (or on top of something but that's another issue). People routinely blur photoshop contest entries that are NSFW. From now on, just use ENHANCE instead of NSFW when dumping all your nekkid ladies on the interwebs. 

/Step one blur.
//Step two enhance!
//Step three profit?

nimbers: But how long until we can uncrop?


Uncrop has been around for a while. I can't remember her name, but topless pictures of one of the Tech TV chicks (Cat something) showed up on the internet because she forgot to cull something from a tightly cropped image of her face.

/unfortunatley the hotness was negated by the fact that the uncropping also revealed a cigarette

Not familiar with that incident, but many cameras store a thumbnail in the same EXIF metadata where they store focal length, camera brand, GPS coords, lens type, etc. If you use an editor which doesn't touch that metadata to do your cropping, the thumbnail of the original is still in the file for anyone who wants to look at it. That's what usually happens at least.

Idea for a short film: It turns out that way the Large Hadron Collider works is by CSI "enhance" technology. They keep enhancing the pic until they can see the Higgs Boson.

Egoy3k: Am I the only person who gets really annoyed by the words 'app' or 'apps'? Whats wrong with calling them programs?

App is short for application and to my mind the application is the task and not the software. In other words the application in this case is to resolve blurred images. This is achieved through use of a computer which follows a preset list of commands, otherwise known as a 'program'.


Greetings, programs!

Slaxl: (sadly, it's Windows-only now)

Shouldn't that be "fortunately the developer made it for the most used operating system, so there's a higher chance it will be of more use to more people straight away, before contemplating working on making versions for other, lesser well known operating systems."?


People likely to do photo editing professionally probably have apple computers.
