Use the four sharpen filters in Photoshop to fix blurry digital pictures. Repair blurry digital images and pictures with the tips in this free video on digital imaging from an Internet design specialist.
Hello, my name is Luis Estrada and I am a Software Developer. In this video, I'll show you how to fix blurry digital pictures. I am using Adobe Photoshop CS2. Photoshop is a registered trademark of Adobe, a company to which I have no affiliation. To fix a blurry image, you can try the sharpen filters included in Photoshop. Go to filter, sharpen and you have four filters to choose from. The one that presents the most option is the smart sharpen filter. In the left window, we have a preview of the image with the filter applied. If you click and hold on it, you'll see the original image. To get a better look at the filter, you can use the two zoom buttons at the bottom of the preview window. In the right column, there is a preview option. If you select it, the filter is applied to the picture outside the window 2. There is a basic and an advance mode. The advance mode, lets you work on the shadow and highlights options separately. Leave the basic option first. The first bar controls the sharpening strength. Depending on the severity on the blur in your picture, you should adjust it accordingly. If you feel that even at the maximum value of 500%, the image is still blurry, you can reapply the filter as many times as you want. Most of the time, the radius value should be kept somewhere between 1 and 4. Otherwise, the image gets too distorted. From the drop down box, you can choose the type of blur to remove. The most common cause of blur in the picture is a shaky hand. This is known motion blur. Choose the angle of the blur in the picture, expand it with this value to find the best direction to apply the filter. Finally, click on okay. If you feel that the image still needs sharpening, press again on filter. At the top of the menu, there is the last applied filter. You can also press control F on the keyboard instead. Remember that there are two other sharpen filters, so you can combine them to see what works best for your picture. I'm Luis Estrada and I've just showed you how to edit your digital images.
