Blurry pictures - Photography

I just developed a film, and most of them were very blurry (there was way too much movement). I know that I won't be able to completly fix them, but is there a software that can make them at least a little better? Thanks in advance Catherine...

    I've used Adobe Photoshp and Photoshop Elements to some extent.

    The two most popular software for photo corrections is Adobe Photoshop
    Elements and Adobe Photoshop. If you have access to either of these programs
    you can try correcting the photo's using the procedures outlined below.

    However, if they are "very blurry" I doubt that they can be satisfactorily
    corrected regardless of which program is used, or if any other program is
    used. To make them "a little better" may be possible but having some
    knowledge as to how to use the Histogram, Curves, and Brightness/Contrast
    controls, along with following up with the sharpening process, would be very
    helpful. Very blurred pictures, be they film or digital are not easily (if
    at all possible) corrected, even to make them "a little better."

    If you're going to use Adobe Photoshop Elements, try this procedure:

    1- Make a rough selection around the subject area you would like to sharpen.

    2- Go to Filters > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask.

    3- Set the amount anywhere between 100 to 190 percent.

    4- Set the radius to about 0.7 to 1.2

    5- Set the threshold at 0.

    If necessary, lower the Opacity to reduce over sharpening effects. If you
    are satisfied with the sharpness, click OK.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you are going to use Adobe Photoshop, try this procedure:

    1- Go to Mode > Lab Color

    2- Go to Channels > Lightness

    The picture will lose its color (temporarily).

    3- Make a rough selection of the area you would like to sharpen.

    4- See procedures 3, 4, and 5 outlined above.

    5 - Adjust Opacity. Click OK when finished.

    6- Go to Image > RGB

    The color will return to the picture.

    The procedure for sharpening a photo should only be done after all other
    photo adjustments have been completed. NEVER work on an original photo.
    Either make a duplicate or make a duplicate layer mask. My preference is to
    make a duplicate (copy) of the picture and work on the copy.

    Good luck.
