Removing Camera Shake with the Photoshop CC Shake Reduction Filter

Article Description

No way to steady your camera for a shot? You could increase the ISO or shutter speed, or brace yourself against a tree or wall, and the image might look sharp, but even subtle lens movement can blur edge details. Finally, Photoshop has a reliable way to address this problem! Photoshop educator Dan Moughamian shows how the new Shake Reduction filter in Photoshop CC can help you reclaim some of those blurred pixels.

Final Detail Check

Final Detail Check

When you've found a combination of blur trace settings that you like, consider making one final check, using the Detail loupe at 50% or 100%, depending on the sharpness of your image, that covers a variety of subject details. Just click OK when you're satisfied with the detail level.
