Multi-stage architectures have been widely used for image motion deblurring and achieved significant performance. Previous methods restore the blurred image by obtaining the spatial details of the blurred input image. However, the blurred image cannot provide accurate high-frequency details, degrading the overall deblurring performance. To address this issue, we propose a novel dual-stage architecture that can fully extract the high-frequency information of the blurred images for reconstructing detailed textures. Specifically, we introduce a supervised guidance mechanism that provides precise spatial details to recalibrate the multi-scale features. Furthermore, an attention-based feature aggregator is proposed to adaptively fuse influential features from different stages in order to suppress redundant information from the earlier stage passing through to the next stage, allowing efficient multi-stage architecture design. Extensive experiments on GoPro and HIDE benchmark datasets show the proposed network has the state-of-the-art deblurring performance with low computational complexity when compared to the existing methods.
