How to Fix Motion Blur in Photoshop

If you've ever attempted to take a picture of a moving object, you know how tough it is to get a steady picture. You usually end up with a blur, especially if the shutter doesn't have enough speed to process the picture before the blur appears. Photoshop allows you to correct this to some degree with its "smart sharpen" filter.

Open the picture you want to edit in Photoshop.

Click "Filter" on the top menu in the program.

Hover your mouse over "Sharpen" until the sub-menu appears.

Click "Smart Sharpen."

Click "Motion Blur" under "Remove."

Drag your mouse around the inside of the circle next to "Angle" to get the proper angle in which the motion blur appears.

Click "OK."
