Fixing blurry pictures??

donnas_gwAugust 17, 2012

Sometimes when I take a digital picture, it comes out blurred like this photo. I save all of my pics in My Pictures, and it does have an editing program, but nothing for blurred pictures. Is there a way to correct them or should I just delete them? Thank you.

I'm afraid nothing can be done, every little pixel is like this, I would delete it.
Make sure you zoom in on the subject, focus, then you can zoom out while still holding the shutter button half way down, ...then snap, not sure if your camera will do that but most have this future.

A little less blurry, but you will never get it completely into focus. I also noticed that everything in the picture is blurred...close and far objects. Maybe movement of the camera caused the blur?

If they are photos that are important to you, you may want to keep them..

The just patented a software program that can fix focus and blur problems such as yours, but it won't be on the market for at least a year.

Your picture seems out of focus. Some auto-focus systems take longer to focus in low light and some do not work at all. In those cases, you may have to revert to the manual focus mode.

However, I suspect that you pushed the shutter button too fast and did not allow enough time for the auto-focus to do its job. Most digital auto-focus cameras have a two step shutter button; the first step activates the focus system. Pushing the button to the second step takes the picture.

I do not know of any software that can fix a pic this badly focused. Some photo editors do have a 'sharpen' function, but this works mostly to adjust contrast of the pixels to better define edges. Overall blur is a missed shot.

How does this look? Better except for glare on one man's glasses...this can be done with free photoscape, with the sharpen feature.
