How to Fix Blurry Images in Photoshop Using Shake Reductions

Hi there in this video, it's all about taking images that are just a little bit blurry out of focus. Things were moving when I was, this little guy was wriggling around when I was trying to photograph him but I love the shot was taken on a cell phone. Everything is against it. But shake reduction of turn it on there just as a little bit of level of sharpness, they're kind of tidies it up. Not 100% but it's definitely a lot better. So let's look at shake reduction in adobe Photoshop to get started. Let's open up the two images, shake reduction one and two from the oh four, fixing images folder. Now, the trouble with fixing this particular image, it's really hard to find stock library images of bad images. So you have to dive into your own images and then you're like who's going to put up a fuss, My baby's not gonna mind if I use him and I'm not gonna mind, Phil might mind, but Phil doesn't even have an internet connection, he's not gonna know. So let's start with Oliver, my new little b...

aby, I love this picture but he was just wriggling around too much. He's kind of like a little bit blurry. This background is kind of an okay focus, it's just a cell phone picture. I just want to get the most from it. So there is no like magic potion, but you can always make things I'd say 30 to 40% better if they're just a little out of focus a little blurry. Either you were jiggling around or in my case my little Gremlin was Alright, let's be fancy and make this non destructive so right click the layer and say convert to smart object just so we can apply it as a filter to turn on and off later on. Let's go to filter, let's go to sharpen and we'll use this top one here. They all of these guys do a similar type of job. They're all about kind of removing the blurriness and grabbing some more detail in my experience. Shake reduction is the best out of all of them. Even if it's not a shaky image, more a blurry image gives you a lot of control in here rather than just kind of like turning it up and down. Like say some of the other filters do not toil in advanced if it's open like yours that will disappear. And the simple version is if you click somewhere on this, you can see the little preview over here and that's my main point of focus. And what it will do is whenever you click it will kind of tell photoshopped that this is kind of like the most important area, analyze this as you're kind of baseline to do the fixing to turn artifact suppression on yours is probably on by default and we've got these settings here. This one just looks at, we've kind of clicked here and it's using an apportion around where I've clicked, you can slide it up and down to kind of included and exclude more. It doesn't really matter what you're really looking for. Is does lowering it make it better or does raising it make it better now? What you'll find though? It's quite a stressful process. I watch this, I'm going to drag this down here, you can see this one updates first and then I've got this little thing that says the quality is not quite right. We're trying our best, we're showing to you. But wait, wait, wait until that thing is gone. Come on, go on. My poor little computers flying around, you can hear the fans coming on, Okay? So just wait until that's gone, you'll notice there's often a little bar that runs across here and you want to wait till that thing disappears or just keep an eye on this, this goes first, it's like a little preview and then eventually it'll update the whole thing. So how do I like it? I'm gonna zoom in best to probably look at 100%. So you can switch it down here to 100% that's that's kind of like the best view to be in. You can be zoomed in any more detail but if it's not going to get any bigger, but if you keep zooming in, you're gonna spot all maybe get a little bit caught up in some of the art effects when you know if it's going to be viewed about this size, then just preview it at this size. So do I like it? How good is it compared to the original? Just tap the peaky and just kind of toggles this on and off. So I just my keyboard here P on P. Off beyond. You can see he's doing a pretty good job. Okay. It's just like like I said, it's it's definitely like I'd say 30% better, maybe 40% better. A lot of details in here are great. OK, his clothes get a lot sharper so that's with it on off. Give it a sec on, you can see it just kind of flicking over here now with these other two settings here, like this one of the top. You don't worry too much about what it's like what these mean. Although this one is quite obvious. Okay, you just got to look at the end result. Okay, smoothing up high. Just gets really milky which might be necessary in some images. Remember I'm waiting for this to be finished or I'm checking it in here because I don't want to kind of make my decision based on this low res preview. I don't like it, pee on. I'm just tapping the peaky PP actually smoothing. Yeah, I'm gonna keep it reasonably low artifact suppression, Same thing on or off. And basically what this means is we're using shake reduction if I turn artifact suppression all the way down. I'm using 100% of the shake reduction if I turn it all the way up here, it's actually doing absolutely nothing this shake reduction. So this is more of like how much of this is applied slider. You can even turn it off completely to say actually just don't try and suppress this shake reduction. Go full noise please. All right, so let's leave him there. Let's click. Ok. And I'm just going to toggle the undo key. So command Z before after control Z on a pc. You can see it's just let's go in here, handsome man. You can see there's some artifacts. It's just the way like this is we're trying to make lemonade out of lemons or a turd and glitter. I'm not sure we can actually use that one. Can you say that in the video? But you get what I mean, Right, we've all had these problems and there's no like absolute magic cure, but shake reduction gets us a lot of the way there. And because it's a smart filter, we can kind of turn it off or on or just kind of like click on this off and on or because it's a layer mask as well, we can click on this and decide that using my paintbrush okay. And using black. I can kind of paint bits out, you can see there, I can decide that it's kind of good around here, but it's doing weird stuff around this area. So I'm just going to kind of paint that out. Okay, so it's not doing the shake reduction around these areas really just kind of focus it into the little man's face. There's my terrible mask there. Let's look at the second version and just we'll go a little bit more advanced. Okay, best dressed man. I know this is us at our every year we meet up, me and all my friends and now kids get together and rent a beach house in beautiful old new Zealand. This is us cutting firewood stuff. You did not need to know but I should probably explain this but let's look at select. No non select. So I got it selected. Let's convert it into a smart object because we're pros it's gonna filter. Let's go to shopping, let's go to shake reduction. And the difference between this one and the last one is that there's kind of like to focus areas so what we can do is 12 and advanced and what we can say is grab the center of it and say that there is something that's quite important. Okay, Cyprus Phil's face and there's another one here. I'm going to click once on my face, actually click and drag around my face. Okay, so there's kind of two parts, there's this one and then there's this one so it's just analyzing these two separate areas and you can actually change the settings per little box. So these are that we're in pretty close focus, let's say it's this and not Phil's face and it is way back here so you can have a different group of settings here. The trace bounds in the smoothing for this particular section and different for this section to kind of get the most out of shake reduction. That's what makes it really cool compared to some of the other sharpened features. Again, it's gonna kind of work through blur smoothing. You might turn artifacts back on just for this section. I turn it off and another one for my man and then go here, drowns smoothing. Probably come down a bit. How's this one doing? I'm happy with that. Let's click OK. And I've gone totally too far on this. Go back into shake reduction case. I just double clicked on the word shake reduction in the layers panel there and spend a bit more time in here. So, I think I need artifact suppression on pretty much all of these. Here we go. Here we go. It's a terrible image. It's a bit better now, this one here, it just needs No, and that's going to be enough for me for the moment. So, before after four after four after you can see we lost a chunk of the Milky Nous from the image. So again, it's only going to get you a bit further through out of focus. Images are really tough, but shake reduction is the best way to clean them up. All right, let's get on to the next video.

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
