Taking a photograph with an older camera can produce grainy or fuzzy photos. This can also be achieved when the camera is moved whilst the photograph is being captured. Either way, there are many ways that you can fix grainy or fuzzy photos nowadays. You can do so on the PC, online, or even on your mobile phone! Continue reading to find out how to fix grainy or fuzzy photos easily.
The first method that we’re going to introduce is not only the easiest way to fix grainy photos, but also one of the best graphics editors in general! The product that we’re talking about is called Fotophire Focus. This graphics editor is available for download on both Windows and Mac operating systems, and features a variety of different tools that can help you fix fuzzy images. For example:
Let’s begin! First, we’re going to have to download the demo-version of Fotophire Focus. This can be done through the Wondershare official website. You can also purchase the program via a one-time payment for the full license. Either way, the download and installation process should only take a couple of minutes. When it’s done, launch the “Photo Focus” editor.
In order to begin, we’re going to have to import the fuzzy photo that we want to fix. To do that click “Open…” on the main hub. Once the image has been imported, we will be moved to the main editor.
It’s actually very easy to fix grainy photos with the Fotophire focus. All you have to do is click the “Sharpen!” tool under the PRESETS menu. This will automatically fix fuzzy photos for you (as shown in the image below.)
However, we’re going to take the process a step further by adjusting the level of enhancement. This can be done using the sliders below the SHARPNESS menu.
As an extra tip, you can also adjust the overall look of the image using the sliders under the ADJUSTMENT menu. Just play around with options like Sharpness, Contrast, and Clarity until you get the look that you want.
All you have to do next is save the finished image. You can do so by clicking the Save icon that is highlighted in the image below.
Another way of fixing grainy pictures on the desktop is through Adobe Photoshop CC. This is a professional graphics editor that offers a lot of features, but it is not necessarily the easiest way to do anything. In fact, Photoshop’s level of complexity often requires a long training period. Nevertheless, we’re going to demo the product here.
You’re going to have invest a couple of hours to download and install Adobe Shop CC, I suggest doing so over night. The program can be downloaded on Adobe official website, and launched through the automatically setup Desktop shortcut.
In order to begin the actual editing process, you’re going to have to import the image first. Just click the “Open…” button on the main hub, and pick the fuzzy photo that you want to fix.
In order to fix grainy photos with Photoshop, you’re going to have to apply a filter that will sharpen the image. You can find this filter on the Filter tab in the top menu. Next, click Sharpen > Shake Reduction.
The image should have been fixed immediately, but you can finalize the edit by clicking the OK button on the top right-hand side. The tab that opened will also offer a couple of sliders that you can use to adjust the sharpened quality of the image.
Save the image by pressing Ctrl + S on your keyboard, or locating the Save option under the File tab.
Now, let’s move on to methods of a different sort. The first type that we’ll be demo-ing is a online photo editing tool. There’s a bunch of websites out there that can help you fix grainy photos, but the one that we’ll be trying out today is from Tutorials Point. They have a photo editing tool that allows for simple image enhancements.
Let’s start with visiting the website itself — you can access it through here. As soon as you access the site, you’ll be introduced to the main editor. Upload the image that you want to fix by clicking on the New tab in the top menu, and pressing the Upload from Computer option.
Click the eye-shaped tool on the left-hand side so that the Sharpness menu will appear. This tool offers a slider that you can adjust to control the amount of clarity that you give to the image. Make sure to click the green APPLY button when you’re done!
Blur Severity: Adjusting this slider will increase or decrease the sharpening effect of the end result.
Once you’re happy with your image, you can download it by clicking on the Download tab on the top menu-bar. You can choose the file type that you want — be it JPG, PNG, or GIF.
Our fourth and last method is through mobile devices. The app that we’re going to be demonstrating with is the Adobe Photoshop Express. It’s available in both Android and IOS devices, and functions almost like a mini version of the regular Adobe Photoshop CC.
You can download the app on your device by clicking here, or looking it up on your Google app or Play Store. Either way, it shouldn’t take you too long to get started on the editing process.
There are several ways that you can fix grainy photos with the Adobe Photoshop app. You can click the magic wand tool at the top menu bar, or make a couple of detailed adjustments using the sliders in the bottom part of the screen.
Although we had shared a variety of different methods that you can use to fix grainy or fuzzy photos, there is no denying that the Fotophire Focus is the best one! With a small one-time payment you will have access to the full-licensed version that will offer all the different editing capabilities of the other programs that we introduced. Not only that, but the Fotophire Focus is much more intuitive and comprehensive, making it the easiest program to master.
