    Firstly, it is not called "bokeh effect". It is called "out of focus".

    If a picture is shot out of focus, there is no way you can use photoshop and make it in focus...

    unless, of course if you are using this camera: http://www.lytro.com/

    You cannot really generate detail where there is none..

    You should have shot with the correct aperture in the first place. Blurring the background is not some post-processing layer the camera puts on top that can easily be removed.

    You shoot the subject with full bokeh if u wish... then ask him/her to move away (if it's a tree, building, then a diff story), shoot the background in small aperature to get its full glory (HD also can), then merge them together. Otherwise you should get a short wide angle lens.
    Think what you're asking is to capture the entire pic clearly? Ans is above, no use zoom...

    Actually you can recover blurriness It's just how much you can.

    Deconvolution Algorithm
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deconvolution

    Software that implemented such algorithm
    http://www.topazlabs.com/infocus/
    It has a fully 30days functional trial. You can try it with no harm done on your this picture that you are trying to restore and see how much you can recover back from it.


    But of course, it's way "cheaper" if you just capture it right in focus in the first place

    you can try focus stacking if you are doing macro or closeup, but of course, in the first place you need to have the photos to merge...

    I didn't read the science or story behind it...maybe it is just me, but the bokeh of the posted photos looks a bit weird...
