When you’re taking photos but got a blurred shot, you can always take another one. But in some cases, you don’t get this chance. For example, a stranger helped take a family photo, but you found the shot was blurry afterwards. The good news is there are some easy ways to make a blurry picture clear. Below, we’ll show you how to unblur a image.

How to unblur a photo

There are two options to unblur a photo. One option is to unblur the photo online. Another option is to unblur the photo with a third-party photo editor. Both options can allow you to unblur photos freely. 

Option 1: Unblur a photo online

There are many online services and apps available for you to unblur a photo. If you don’t want to install third-party software on your computer, you can use the online services. If you don’t know what online services you can use, we recommend trying Fotor.

Fotor is a great online service that allows you to edit photos easily. You can use it to unblur your photos with a few clicks. It has the paid version and the free version. To unblur photos, you can just use the free version.

To unblur a photo with Fotor, you can follow these steps:

2) Click Open in the top menu to add the photo you want to unblur.

3) Once the photo is added, click Basic in the left panel.

4) Expand BASIC in the pop-up menu.

5) Under Sharpness, move the dot from left to right to adjust the sharpness. When you move the dot to the right, you’ll see the photo become clearer. Just adjust the sharpness to the level you want. 

Option 2: Unblur a photo with a photo editor

Another option for you to unblur a photo is using a third-party photo editor. A photo editor is expected to have more functions than online services. If you edit photos a lot, we recommend you use a third-party photo editor. If you’re not sure what photo editor you can trust, try Movavi Photo Editor.
