How to Unblur an Image

Have you ever thought you have taken the perfect picture, only to find it blurry and therefore entirely ruined? Of course, if it' possible to retake the photo, you could get a better picture, but what happens when there is no way to get another shot? If there's no way to retake the picture, most people scrap the photo altogether—but you don't have to.

There's no need to scrap a potentially good photo because it's too blurry, shaky, or unfocused. Instead, you can blur an image and sharpen your picture back into focus using CyberLink's photo editing app PhotoDirector.

In addition to Deblur, PhotoDirector comes chock full of professional photo editing features that can create unique and fun pictures using AI-powered tools and the latest and greatest photo editing tech. You can try your hand at photo overlays, adding text to images, and hundreds of other features to help you create any photo or picture you can imagine with tons of cool effects.

But for now, let's focus on how to fix blurry pictures.

How to Fix Blurry Pictures

Before Using Blur
After Using Blur

The AI-powered Deblur tool in PhotoDirector makes it easy to fix the focus of your image. Here are the steps you need to take to unblur an image using the PhotoDirector app:

1. Upload Your Picture to the PhotoDirector Library

The first step is selecting the picture you want. For this tutorial, you should choose an image that is blurry, shaky, or unfocused. Drag and drop the image into PhotoDirector to start the deblurring process.

2. Navigate to the Guided Module

The next step after you upload your chosen image is selecting the "Guided" module. Then, scroll on the left-hand side of your screen to the menu that says, "Improve or Remove".

3. Apply Deblur

After you're in the correct module, select the Deblur tool under the "Improve or Remove" editing menu. Then, click the "Apply" button and your photo will come into focus.

4. Adjust the Strength of Deblur

Next, you'll use the slider bar to adjust the strength of the deblur. For a more precise level of control, you can input a number instead of using the slider bar.

5. Save Your Image

Once you're happy with the final product, you can print out a copy, or save it and upload it to your social media.

Bonus: Access Guided Tools and Deblur in Layer Editing

If you look at the bottom right-hand side of the screen while in layer editing mode, you'll see the little wand icon in a square. Click the icon for quick and easy access to Guided Editing Tools like the Deblur and Blur tool or even Content-Aware removal. It makes it a cinch to edit and deblur photos without ever having to navigate away from the Layer Editing module.

Unblur Images in Seconds

You can unblur pictures that are fuzzy and unfocused with remarkable ease using PhotoDirector. It's as easy as uploading your blurry image and then using the AI-powered Deblur tool and slider bar to strengthen the deblur and put your picture into sharper focus.

PhotoDirector has all the advanced tools photo editors need to create unique images—the only limit is your imagination. PhotoDirector allows you to do things like add animations, create photo overlays, add text, color replacement, and even more.

Download the PhotoDirector app on your mobile device, Windows PC, or Mac and get all the best photo editing features right at your fingertips.
