Do you ever get your camera home and upload your pics only to find some of your favorites are a touch blurry? All is not lost I have a tip for you to fix it and it is pretty simple. Here is my picture. You can see his face is a bit blurry probably because he was moving. I don’t mind the rest being blurry though…here are the steps I took…
1. Duplicate photo (so you don’t mess up the original and to use later as well)
2. Go to FILTER—>SHARPEN–>UNSHARP MASK . Now you get to play with the settings. You are going to be changing amount and radius. Start at about 150 for amount and 10 for radius. It was a bit much for my photo and what I wanted. I ended up with Amount: 100 and Radius: 5
3. I didn’t want the whole photo fixed so I added a layer mask and filled it black. I used a white brush to “paint” over his face only. When you do this you are revealing the part of the photo you want seen and leaving the rest hidden (remember the original is the bottom layer)
4. Crop and touch up as needed
Here is a before and after and an after
Much better right? Now I can see his sweet face! If you need screen shots or more details please, please email me at digiscrapping27 AT gmail DOT com
