The blur tool may soften and conceal pictures. It appears to be out of focus and blurry. The smudge tool, on the other hand, does not produce fuzzy pictures. It smudges the image and removes pixels from the available area. The pixels are not replaced with any kind of background color, so areas where this tool is used will appear black.
In addition to these effects, photos can also be straightened using this tool. Lines that were in reality curved in anamorphic (wide-to-tall) photographs can now be made vertical again. This tool is particularly useful for correcting building corners that were not quite right when taken.
Photos can also be rotated using this tool. Rotating images helps you take advantage of all sides of your photo paper or film. Right-angle turns are especially useful for creating frame designs.
And lastly, photos can be flipped horizontally or vertically using this tool. Flipping images hides bad angles or awkward poses and makes what would have been dull subjects interesting. For example, a person sitting at a desk could be made into a landscape shot by flipping it.
Photos with text inside them can also be edited using this tool. Any words or characters that are too small to read easily will appear blurred too.
The Blur Tool allows you to blur certain sections of an image. The Sharpen tool is the same. The smudge tool is most likely the most advanced. It's like swiping your finger across wet paint on a painting. The smudge tool can be used to add texture, change colors, or make other edits to an image.
To create a blur effect, use the Blur Tool. Each stroke with the Blur Tool reduces the contrast between the affected pixels, making them look blurry. The context-sensitive Choices Bar, which is normally situated at the top of your workspace, will provide all applicable Blur Tool options.
Blurry JPEG files may be cleaned up with the "Sharpen" function accessible in many image editing tools. Blurry photographs may be improved by utilizing the "Sharpen" tool in most image editing tools. The tool can be used to remove some of the noise from the photo while preserving the subject's details.
Filters should be sharpened. Sharpening fuzzy photos by raising the contrast of nearby pixels. This can cause image noise, or random patterns, especially in dark areas of the photo. The more you raise the contrast the more noise will appear.
Blur filters soften images by spreading out the color from their center to their edge. The bluer the filter the softer the image becomes. These filters also tend to smooth out facial features which may not be desirable for portrait-style photographs.
Distort filters change the shape of parts of the image. They work best on people faces because the filters can be carefully placed over specific areas of interest. Distorting the photo can make it look like someone is smiling when they are not, or giving a different expression to what they actually have on their face. These filters can also be used to add humor or drama to an image.
Artistic filters let you choose from a variety of effects. Some examples include: vintage, retro, film, panoramic, etc. These effects are useful for adding special touches to your photos, such as making them look like old movie posters, or giving an impression that you took the picture from a particular location.
Another useful tool for reducing blur from your photographs is Fotor. It's called "structure," and it emphasizes textures without changing the image's boundaries. There are two possibilities for this tool: detail and gradation. Increase the details in your photo to unblur it. Structure photos with lots of details look like miniature paintings.
Use Gradation to soften images without losing information about their borders. This tool works by analyzing different areas of an image; then it adjusts the brightness and contrast of those regions separately. The results are quite impressive if you ask me. I tried it on some pictures I took and it worked like a charm!
Finally, there is an option called "Exposure." It analyzes various parts of the image and tries to balance them correctly. For example, if there are objects in front and behind the camera lens, this tool will make sure that they're exposed equally so that neither one is completely dark or bright.
These tools are very powerful and can reduce blur from almost any source, not just from photography.
The Gaussian Blur filter is used to blur a picture or a selection. Go to Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur to use the Gaussian Blur filter. The blur strength is affected by the radius. An example of the Gaussian Blur filter's dialogue window It includes a preview of an image with a blur radius of 5.0.
Radius: Sets the distance in pixels that shapes each side of the blur. This value does not have any effect on monochrome images.
Amount: Use this slider to change the amount of blurring. To lighten or darken an area, increase or decrease the amount of exposure used when taking the photo.
Tool Size: Changes the size of the blur. Smaller values result in a sharper image with more detail, while larger values smooth out image details.
Crop Mode: Selects the portion of the image that will be kept after blurring. Can be useful when you want to blur only a part of the image.
Color: Displays the color profile for the selected layer. You can use this information to adjust the colors in your image before applying the Gaussian Blur filter.
Profile: Displays a dialog box with several options for converting the selected image to the sRGB color space. See here for more information about sRGB.
Gamma: Displays the gamma settings for the selected layer.
Funky Focus allows you to blur photographs using either Radial mode (for a circular blur) or Linear mode (perfect for when you want to blur the background or other planes, such as middle ground or foreground). These choices are available just above the Blur Amount slider. They are the first and second symbols on the left.
To use these modes, first select a region of your image that you'd like to be blurred (this area cannot include people's faces). Then click the Symbol button and choose one of the options from the list that appears.
You can also manually enter the position of each point where you want to apply the blur via the Freehand mode. To do this, simply click anywhere within the image, hold down the Shift key and click again to set a new position. The image will be blurred at both positions.
