How to Fix Blurry Photos Online

If your digital photo or image came out more blurry than what you would have liked, you can use digital editing to fix the quality of your photo. By using the "sharpen" or "deblur" tool on your photo, you can often make a blurry picture crisper. You don’t need to purchase expensive digital editing tools to sharpen a blurry picture, however. Below are instructions on how to use three free online services to sharpen and fix your blurry photos.

Go to the free online photo editor at the Cellsea website.

Press the "Browse" button to search your PC for the image you want to fix. You can also enter the URL of a picture if it is hosted online. Once you find the image, press the "Go" button. This will launch your photo in the Cellsea photo editor.

Click the "Sharp" button from the top toolbar and choose "Sharpen" from the drop-down menu. This will sharpen your image and make it less blurry.

Click the "Save" button and choose "Save to PC." You will need to name your fixed photo, then click the "OK" button to launch the prompt to save the image to your computer.

Go to the Fix Picture website.

Click the "Browse" button to browse your computer for an image.

Place a check in the box next to "Sharpen" in the Effect section.

Place a mark next to "Best" in the output section.

Click the "Convert" button to allow the website to change your picture. This will take you to a new page with your edited photo.

Right-click on the new image and choose to save the image to your computer. When complete, you sharpened image will be saved.

Go to the Online Photo! Editor website.

Click "From disk" to upload a photo from your computer or "Enter URL" to upload a photo that is hosted online. Your image will appear on the page once it has been loaded.

Click the "Deblur" button under the "Correct photos" header and allow the website to sharpen your image.

Click the "Save to disk" button to launch a download prompt for your fixed photo.

Tip

You may need to sharpen or deblur your image more than once to fix the photo.

Warning

Do not sharpen your photo too much or it may become pixilated.
