We have all been there, you think you’ve snapped that perfect moment – your baby’s first smile, your wife crossing the finishing line, your best friend tossing the bouquet – a moment you can never get back and then you realise – your photo is blurry.
Fortunately, technology is on your side, and with a little bit of know how you can learn to save your fuzzy snap from the trash can.
When it comes to making a blurry picture usable, the internet is your ally. Although nothing can be done to resurrect a completely indistinguishable photo, the sharpen feature in many online photo editors will do wonders to fix slightly out of focus shots.
Pixlr is a cloud based photo editor which comes with a range of tools such as red-eye removal, resizing and sharpening, all of which can be used in an app or online.
To use the sharpen feature, upload your photograph to Pixlr and click the ‘Adjustment’ button, then select ‘Sharpen’. Simply set the desired amount of sharpness to add and adjust the radius until you find the right balance for that specific photo. The radius controls the size of the details that will be sharpened, generally it is best to use a low number for this setting. It may take a little time to get the appropriate levels, but if it is a one of a kind shot it is worth persevering as it really can make a difference.
