How To Fix Blurry Pictures Online

Attempting to fix blurry pictures online isn’t always easy, and results will depend on the level and type of blur present. The good news is that it is possible. If you can’t find the perfect tool in Shutterstock Editor, here are other free online solutions for blurred pictures.

Popular Free Online Fixes for Blurry Photos

  • Pixlr: Surprisingly comprehensive for a free online app, Pixlr offers a suite of tools that work great for people with some previous photo editing experience, including sharpen features and masks.

  • Photopea: One of the most comprehensive free online photo editing programs, Photopea operates from your browser and provides access to many of the tools found in past versions of Photoshop, including layer editing options and useful tools such as High Pass and Sharpen.

  • Mara Sharpen: The Mara website is very user friendly and separates each image modification into its own page. Sharpen is easy to use, offering a simple slider to adjust the level desired.

How To Fix Blurry Images

With apps like Mara Sharpen, all you need to do is upload a photo from your Shutterstock Collections or desktop and move the slider to make adjustments. If you have access to Adobe Photoshop or decide to visit Pixlr or Photopea, here is another useful way to sharpen blurry images:

1. Duplicate the background using Layer > Duplicate Layer.

2. After selecting this new layer, choose Filter > High Pass. Set the slider so image counters are clearly visible but not too strong. Select OK.

3. In the layer panel, select the dropdown list and choose the Overlay, Soft Light or Hard Light option, depending on the strength desired.

4. Move the opacity slider to the left, adjusting the percentage to the optimal appearance.
