When watching a GIF, the image seems to be crisp, as the animation is moving along quite quickly. If you were to analyze the GIF frame by frame, you'd notice that each image is rather blurry.

I'm wondering if it is possible to combine frames near to each other using some kind of filtering in Photoshop to produce one clear still image?

  • That would depend on the GIF. – Alex Blackwood Nov 20 '13 at 17:12
  • Sarcasm aside, the answer could be yes, depending on GIF in question. Was it created from a video? Is it of a static scene? Does it require stabilization? – Alex Blackwood Nov 20 '13 at 17:53

The process itself is called interpolation and probably for video, frame interpolation. Regarding Photoshop's ability to do this, I am unsure.
