I was wondering if there was any photo management software out there that could auto detect and "rate" images on how in focus they are.
This comes up for me quite commonly when i am looking through a large series of macro images of the same subject.
In a perfect world, light room (or whatever program) could highlight in focus and out of focus ares the same way that it detects burned out areas of an image. Also the algorithm i am hoping exists would be smart and would not be detracted by blurred backgrounds and only seeks that some sufficient area is in enough focus.
Anything like that out there?
As another thought for people talking about pictures being in focus on the wrong spot, and that camera focus models already look into this. Another large factor for a lack of clarity in a macro image is blur from camera movement. This damages all points on an image, and is not something the camera accounted for when focusing.
