Anyway you can fix a blurry photo in Photoshop?

I have been recently doing a few touch ups and covers for people on my social media. I am very good at simple covers and photo touch ups. The problem i have is when a client gives me a blurry or pixilated photo to use. If i put it in Lightroom i can sort of fix it but its not perfect and often times makes it worse. I was curious to know if anyone had a remedy to this problem. Can this actually be fixed or do i need a new photo every time this happens? Maybe im using the wrong program for this job. do any of you have any experience with this? Any feedback is appreciated thanks!

As always thank you for reading please don't forget to follow me.

No, not as far as I know, you can make it look "better" but an out of focus image will remain out of focus no matter how much photoshop you will use. I bet some Photoshop experts out there might be able to recreate certain aspects but the photo will lose its natural properties and will be more synthetic.

I actually struggle in learning Photoshop for a while now, I learned some tricks and I am able to do some basic editing but nothing close to doing the "impossible" some highly skilled people can do.

Yes that is what I thought too... recreation maybe not not fix exactly.

This sounds like an interesting topic and I would be very interested to know if you can. I wonder,would the reason for the blurriness play a role here?

I have a number of photos that are blurry because I zoomed to get the shot. Then other photos my kids moved so it is a bit blurry. (It is not always easy taking a photo of a busy 2 year old LOL).

Then there are other photos where the photo was fine but I made changes to the photo like cropping it and making it smaller for using on my website. Then if I try and blow that pic up again to its original size it is blurry...

There is a little thing that you can do to adjust the blurriness of a certain photo using Photoshop but I don't think it would make it better. Probably the differences wouldn't be noticeable because if you edit it hard enough, it would eventually destroy the original image. At least that's what I know of and have experienced when I try to edit a blurry a image. I don't know about other softwares though. There is probably a way but not that I know of.

With regards to taking off blurs from photos, photoshop is pretty straightforward. The tools are right there and you can just play with them until you get the results that you want. But powerful as it might be, even photoshop still has its limits. If the photo is like really blurry, then there is nothing much you can do about it. The best solution still is to not get and use blurry photos at all. It might be quite expensive but I think it is also good to invest in better cameras or devices which can capture photos with higher qualities.

You can use the Photoshop for your problem, but if you use your mobile phone you may find some good app that will help you to fix a blurry photo or make some other correction that you need. A friend of mine had such an app on his mobile phone, I cannot remember the name but I am sure if you will Google it you will find it easy, and you can post easily your photos on the social media from your phone if you have an Internet connection!

I don't think you can actually fix a blurry photo in Photoshop but my tip would be if you're trying to enlarge a picture or some images in Photoshop the first hing you want to do is convert it to smart object you can find it if you left click the layer and select the convert to smart object. This is what I do if I don't want to affect the pixel of my image or make my image blurry whenever i resized it.

I am not an expert, however, I use photoshop for light and color correction as well as heavy manipulation. As far as I know, you cannot fix a blurry photo on photoshop (I cannot tell about other photo editing programs). You can fix pixelated images on photoshop by doing massive touch up, but the photo will lose it originality.

That's an interesting topic actually. I'm just starting to learn Photoshop and I don't know all the features, but I had a problem with blurred images too. I was taking a photoshoot on a dog competition and the photos are really cool, but sometimes it's hard to make a dog stay still, so some of the photos are blurred a little bit. I've tried to change brightness and contrast, and make a color correction, but I'm not completely satisfied with the result. My friend made a suggestion to take pictures of animals and babies in a black&white mode because even if the photo is blurred it will look better. And, it's always possible to colorize black and white photos using online apps.
