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?

  • 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? Nov 20, 2013 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.
