You might try the

IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > PUT CAMERA ON TRIPOD NEXT TIME filter.

Seriously, sharpening and the Unsharp Mask can only do so very little in correcting a blurred image. Try it, but don't be surprised if the results don't match your hopes.

Is there a time machine plugin so I can go back and take my tripod with me too?

There are several things you can do to salvage such an image. I usually use a special sharpening tool that I got at Fred Miranda's site. I then combine the use of gaussian blur and several other techniques in PS to get a photo that looks passable. Here is an example of one where I tried to handhold but got a unsharp photo as a result:



But it came out pretty well with the above ideas.

Cheers,

Try unsharp mask at .4 pixels at 400%. I think you might like that.

That's it exactly. By doing extra softening to other parts of the photo it makes the whole photo look like its a deliberate soft focus shot. It is sort of like old toy camera look or the look you get when you use a soft focus lens. I used to get this look with my Sima Soft focus lens.

Open image.

Layer duplicate.

Image-adjustments-desaturate (top copy only)

Filters-other-highpass (you will see a grey preview screen, slide the slider to the right till you begin to see edge detail, but don't go too far to the right)

apply the filter

Go to the layers pallete and adjust the "overlay type" of the top layer to "softlight".

Click on the eyeball for the top layer to turn it off and on and you will see the effect.
