Is there a way in PS to correct for a blurry photo?
05/04/2007 04:55:33 PM · #2
How blurry do you mean?
05/04/2007 05:00:18 PM · #3
Not to bad. I just don't know how to post the photo up here.

hahaha....No disrespect but that is one of the funniest questions I have ever read.

hahahahaaa.

Unlike what they show you on TV and in the movies.... you can't invent detail that isn't already there. If the image is blurry, it can be made to look BETTER. But it cannot bring back detail that was never there.

However, blurriness is also a function of size. The larger the image, the more visible any error in focus becomes. So if you want to hide the blurriness ... shrink it! Print it smaller. Only show a smaller image on screen, whatever.

Yeah I didn't answer your question....

The answer is no. Unless you twist it around and go for an "intentional soft effect" or something.

As it was mentioned, it can be improved, but may never be right, and reducing the image size will help:

I just though that burriness was the shifting pixels in all the rows.

Brad

That is what I am talking about. And yes I don't expect a blue ribbon on the photo just something I can hand out.

Try focusmagic. There's a free 5 image trial.

It's a good sharpening tool overall.

First off, Eric is kidding. Second, it IS a funny question. I was even extra polite and said, "no disrespect"...I normally wouldn't do that, but I could tell the post was sincere. But honestly, if you look at musicman's portfolio, they clearly have taken pictures before and it is a widely known fact that if a picture is blurry, it is blurry. Either digital or pre-digital. I was poking fun at the question and its simplicity, not its intentions or the photographer. Lighten up.

To me, it would be like asking, "What happens when I push the button on top of the camera"....or...."Why is my shot blown out?" It just comes across as funny.

Thanks Brad and nshapiro.
I guess it is not possible to un-blurr in PS>.
Thanks anyway.

Any time someone starts with "no disrespect" it means someone is about to be disrespected, always.
05/04/2007 06:48:29 PM · #16
Use sharpen, sharpen more, and as a last resort use unsharp mask, be carefull though can cause vignetting and distortion along image lines or seporations to to heavy contrasting. Also try saving images at a smaller final size. Say from original 11x14 300dpi to say 8x10 150 dpi.

Well I guess I just disproved that theory. Because I did not disrespect anyone by saying it was funny. "Any time" and "always" are unique words not to be used flagrantly. Sorry dude, but you are mistaken. You can't disrespect a question. You can disrespect a person. I said the question was funny. Huge difference.

Am I the only one who's noticed that this is musicman's first participation at this site in nearly 3 YEARS? Clearly they have let their photography slide and are trying to get back into it. So give them the benefit of the doubt.

Welcome back musicman. Hope you stick around this time.

After only being here a few months, I already know that there are some pretty talented and technically skilled photogs, like the one that improved upon those wedding pics. I would be inclined to ask for help in the forums if I thought someone could help me fix a photo that I would like saved. It sounds like a funny question but if anyone can fix it, they're on this website...

Fine. I guess I didn't receive the bulletin that the "Tread Lightly Police are in full force. Next time I will be solemn, somber and boring and not find the humor in things. I am done.

Oh and Mr. "Woo".....I won't hesitate to exact revenge! Hahaa. You know your "jackass" comment started this whole thing and you are probably laughing it up. 1-0, you are winning.

Sorry 'bout that Beau. For the record, I WAS indeed kidding. The question also made me chuckle, mostly because I've been there before. Now, you all stop being so damn sensitive, and let the games begin!

I wasn't really going for the tread lightly thing, I just found it interesting to see someone posting in the forums who hadn't been around for so long. Just a clumsy attempt at welcoming back an old member.

Well um, I wasn't trying to start anything. And yes if you are up to date with the hole digital imaging and photo manipulation thing then yes I agree it could possibly be viewed as funny, BUT I was trying to look at it from Musicman's possible point of view which I believe was a valid question and deserved at least a bit of an explanation after laughing at him. (and yes I saw your explanation further down) I think its funny how fast people in here can loose their tempers lately. Anyway like I said not here to start anything as it seems no matter what I say lately people take it the wrong way...

Cheers,

I didn't realize I was going to stir up such a discussion. Thanks to all. I once again realized, I am not up to you guys caliber of photography. I will once again dis-appear into the WWW of interneting.

By the way, I have see some great improvements since I last submitted a photo. Way to go you guys. Keep improving and winning those ribbons.
