  • Photoshop provides many different tools, filters, and masks that allow you to fine-tune the sharpness (or blur) of an image.

    Sharpness adjustment enhances sharpness edges in the image. Sharpening can improve the quality of most images, whether they were taken with a digital camera or scanning). Required degree sharpness depends on the quality of the digital camera or scanner. It should be remembered that the sharpness adjustment cannot fix much blurry images. nine0005

    Tips for getting the best sharpness.

    • Image sharpness must be adjusted separately for each layer so that it can be re-adjusted if a different output device is used.

    • When adjusting sharpness on a separate layer, this layer should be set to Blending Mode Brightness to avoid shifting color along the edges.

    • Adjusting the sharpness enhances the image contrast. If the highlights or shadows appear to be clipped after adjusting the sharpness, you should change the layer's blend mode (if the sharpening was changed on a separate layer) so that the sharpness does not change in the highlights and shadows. See Set the tonal range for overlay layers. nine0005

    • Reduce image noise before sharpening to avoid amplifying noise.

    • The image sharpness should be adjusted a little at a time. The initial sharpening corrects the blur that occurred when the image was captured (during scanning or when shooting with a camera). After correcting the color and size, you should re-sharpen the image (or its copy) to add a margin of sharpness according to the output device. nine0005

    • If possible, sharpness should be judged from the image on the final output device. The amount of sharpness required depends on the output device.

    Use the Unsharp Mask (USM) filter or the Smart Sharpen filter for more control over the process of sharpening images. You can also use the Sharpen, Sharpen Edges, and Sharpen filters in Photoshop, but these are automatic filters and have no controls or options. nine0005

    Sharpness can be adjusted both for the entire image and for a separate part of it, specified by selection or mask. Because the Unsharp Mask and Smart Sharpen filters can only be applied to one layer at a time, you'll have to merge layers or flatten the file to sharpen all the layers in an image in a layered file.

    The name of the filter "Unsharpened" comes from the darkroom method used with photographic film. This filter rather sharpens the image. nine0005

    Filtered Smart Sharpen provides sharpening controls not available in the filter "Contour sharpness". In it, you can set the sharpness adjustment algorithm or set intensity of sharpness in shadow areas and in areas of the world.

    Smart Sharpen dialog box (Photoshop)
    1. Set the image window zoom to 100%, so that the sharpness adjustment is displayed more accurately.

    2. Choose Filter > Sharpen > Smart Sharpen. nine0005

    3. Set the options on the sharpening tabs.

      the effect

      Sharpness adjustment intensity. The higher the value, the higher contrast between pixels at the edges, which makes the image appear more sharp.


      Number of pixels affected by the filter around pixels around the edges. The larger the radius value, the wider the outline effect and the more obvious the sharpness adjustment. nine0005

      Reduce noise

      (Photoshop only) Reduces unwanted noise without affecting important edges.


      The sharpening algorithm applied to the image.

      • The Gaussian Blur method is used in the Unsharp Mask filter.
      • The Shallow Depth of Field Blur algorithm recognizes edges and details in an image, then sharpens details and adjusts ghosting to a lesser degree. nine0009
      • Motion blur is used to reduce the blur effect caused by camera or subject movement. The Motion Blur option uses the Angle control.


      Direction of Motion for Motion Blur Delete control.

      More precisely

      This feature becomes available when using older versions (valid from version CS6) and provides slow file processing for more accurate blur removal. nine0005

    4. Sharpness adjustment correction for dark and light areas using tabs "Shadow" and "Light". (To display these tab, click the Advanced button.) Excessive dark or light ghosting when sharpening can be corrected using the described controls. They are only available for images with 8 or 16 bits/channel deep.

      Gradual weakening of the effect

      This parameter sets the intensity with which the sharpness of the light is adjusted and shadows. nine0005

      Tonal Width

      Variable light tone range and shadows. The value of the width of the tonal range is adjusted by moving the slider left or right. The lower the value, the more shadow correction is limited. the darkest areas, and light correction - the lightest.


      The size of the area around each pixel over which its belonging to light or shadow is determined. Moving the slider to the left sets an area of ​​smaller radius, to the right - more. nine0005

    5. Click OK.

    Filter Peaking sharpens an image by increasing contrast along its edges. The edges images are not detected by the "Unsharp Mask" filter. The filter finds pixels whose value differs from the surrounding ones pixels by a given threshold. After that, the filter increases the contrast neighboring pixels by a given value. Thus, the surrounding the pixels of the light pixels become even lighter, and the dark pixels around the dark ones become even more darker. nine0005

    In addition, the radius of the area, against which the value for each pixel is compared. The larger the radius, the more pronounced edge effects.

    The original image and the same image with the Sharpening filter

    The amount of sharpening applied to an image is often a matter of taste. Be aware that sharpening too much will result in a halo effect around the edges.

    Sharpening an image too much causes ghosting along the edges. nine0002 The effects of applying the "Unsharp Mask" filter are more expressed on screen than in high resolution output. If the image is intended for printing, it is recommended to experiment with the settings and determine optimal values.

    1. (Optional) If the image contains several layers, select the layer with the image to work with, the sharpness of which need to be adjusted. The "Unsharp Mask" filter can only be applied to one layer at a time, even if the layers are linked or grouped. Before applying the Unsharp Mask filter, You can merge layers. nine0005

    2. Choose Filter > Sharpen > Peaking. Make sure the View option is selected.

      Click the image in the preview window and hold down the mouse button to see the image without sharpening. You can see different parts of the image in the preview window by dragging, and the "+" or "-" buttons control the image scale.

      Although the Sharpening dialog box has its own window preview, the dialog box is best moved so that the results of applying the filter can be seen in the window document. nine0005

    3. To determine the number of pixels processed by the filter around the pixels located at the edges, drag the Radius slider, or type corresponding value. The larger the radius value, the wider the edge effects spread. The wider the outline effect is, the more the increased sharpness will be visible.

      The radius value may vary depending on the user's taste, as well as the size of the final reproduction and the output method. Radius values ​​of 1 and 2 are recommended for high-resolution images. A smaller value only sharpens the pixels of the outlines themselves, while a larger value increases the sharpening over a wider area of ​​pixels. This effect is not as noticeable in print as it is on screen, because a two-pixel radius takes up less space in a high-resolution printed image. nine0005

    4. To set the amount of pixel contrast enhancement, drag the Effect slider, or enter an appropriate value. For images that are printed at high resolution, values ​​between 150% and 200% are generally recommended.

    5. Specify the difference by which the pixels in question are recognized, compared to surrounding pixels, as outlines for further processing by the filter. To do this, drag the slider for the Threshold parameter or enter an appropriate value. For example, a threshold of 4 means processing all pixels whose tone values ​​on a scale from 0 to 255 differ by 4 units or more. So adjacent pixels with values ​​128 and 129will not be processed. To avoid noise or posterization (for example, in images with skin tones), it is recommended to use an edge mask or try to set a threshold value between 2 and 20. The default threshold value (0) means to sharpen the entire image.

    If, after applying the Unsharp Mask filter, you already bright colors look oversaturated, choose Edit menu command "Weaken the contour sharpness" and in the mode menu, select the glow. nine0005

    You can sharpen parts of an image defined by a mask or selection to prevent sharpening in certain areas of the image. For example, when processing a portrait using an edge mask and the Unsharp Mask filter, you can sharpen the eyes, mouth, nose, and head outlines, but leave the skin texture unchanged.

    Treatment selected image details with the "Unsharp Mask" filter using an edge mask

    Adjusting the sharpness of a selection

    1. In the layers panel, select image layer and select an area for processing.

    2. Choose Filter > Sharpen > Outline sharpness." Adjust the settings and click OK.

      The sharpness is increased only in the selected area, and the rest of the the image remains unchanged.

    Image sharpening with edge masks

    1. To selectively adjust the sharpness, a mask must be created. An edge mask is created in several ways. Apart from the way you prefer, you can try the next one. nine0005

      • Open the Channels panel and select the channel in which the image is shown in the window document in grayscale with maximum contrast. Often this is the red or green channel.
      High contrast channel selection
      • Duplicate the selected channel.
      • Select the duplicate channel, then select Filter > Stylize > Select Edges.
      • To invert an image, choose Image > Adjustments > "Inversion". nine0009
      The result of applying the Edge Selection filter and inverting the image
      • Continuing to work with inverted image, select Filter > Others > "Maximum". To expand outlines and randomize pixels, set the radius to a small value, and click OK.
      • Select Filter > Noise > Median. Install a small radius value and click OK. This filter averages adjacent pixels.
      • To get rid of random pixels, choose Image > Adjust > "Levels" and set the black point. If necessary, the final the edge mask can be retouched with black.
      Entering a large black point value in the Levels menu to remove random pixels from the edge mask
      • To feather the edges, choose Filter > Blur > "Gaussian blur".

      Filters "Maximum", "Median" and "Gaussian Blur" soften the edge mask, which gives a better blend of sharpening effects in the final image. Though all three filters were used in the described procedure, you can only experiment with one or only two. nine0005

    2. To select an edge mask, click the duplicate channel in the panel Channels by holding down the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command (Mac OS).

    3. In the Layers panel, select the image layer. Make sure the selection is still visible in the image.

    4. Choose the Selection menu > Invert.

    5. When the selection in the image layer is active, select Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Install desired settings and click OK. nine0005

      To view the results on in the Channels panel, select the RGB channel and deselect the image.

      To help you complete all the steps in this procedure you can create the corresponding operation.

    Updates in the February 2020 release of Photoshop 21.1

    Blurs an image by creating the effect of reducing the depth of field of an image in space, leaving some objects in the image in focus and others blurry. Blurred areas can be set using a simple selection, or you can create a separate alpha channel depth map that accurately describes the amount of blur. nine0005

    The Shallow Depth of Field Blur filter uses a depth map to determine the location of pixels in an image. In addition, the starting point of this blur for the selected depth map can be specified using the crosshair cursor. Depth maps can be created using alpha channels and layer masks. The black areas of the alpha channel are treated as the foreground of the photo, and the light areas as the background.

    How the blur appears depends on the selected aperture shape. The number of petals determines the shape of the iris diaphragm. Aperture shutters can be changed by bending (rounding) or turning them. The image in the preview window can be reduced or enlarged using the "+" and "-" buttons. nine0005

    1. (Optional) Enable the GPU in Photoshop. Select Edit (Windows) / Photoshop (macOS) > Preferences > Performance, then select Use GPU in the Preferences dialog.

      Starting with the release of Photoshop 21.0 (November 2019), lens blur uses your computer's graphics card to improve performance when applying appropriate filters. In the February 2020 release of Photoshop 21.1, the algorithm has been improved to produce softer edges on foreground objects, brighter bokeh effects, and more realistic highlights. nine1035

    2. Select the menu items in sequence: Filter > Blur > Blur at shallow depth of field.

    3. In the Preview area, select one of the following options:

      • Faster: Select this option to create a preview image faster.
      • More precisely: select this option to view the final version of the image. Generating more accurate preview images takes more time. nine0009
    4. To use a depth map, select a channel from the Source menu: Transparency or Layer Mask. Select No if there is no channel with a depth map source.

      Drag the Blur focal length slider to determine the depth at which pixels are in focus. For example, if the focal length is set to 100, then pixels at depths of 1 and 255 will be completely blurred, while pixels closer to 100 will be sharper. nine0005

      If you click on the preview image, the Blur focal length slider will move according to the value of the given location, with the focus set to the depth of the given location.

      To achieve a smooth blur (no blur at the bottom and maximum blur at the top), create a new alpha channel and apply a gradient so that the channel is white at the top of the image and black at the bottom. After that, open the Shallow Depth of Field Blur filter and select the alpha channel from the Source menu. To change the direction of the gradient, check the Invert box. nine0005

    5. To invert the selection or alpha channel used as the source of the depth map, select the Invert option.

    6. From the Shape menu, select Aperture. If necessary, drag the Sheet curvature slider to smooth out the edges of the aperture, or rotate the aperture using the Rotate slider.

      Additional blur can be added using the Radius slider.

    7. In the Highlights area, use the Threshold slider to set the cutoff brightness. All pixels whose brightness exceeds the specified threshold will be treated as highlights. nine0005

      To increase the brightness of highlights, drag the Brightness slider.

    8. To add noise to the image, use the Effect slider in the Noise section. Select the noise distribution option: Uniform or Gaussian.

      To add gray noise without affecting the color, select Monochrome .

      Blur removes film grain, noise, and fine texture from the original image. Bringing back some of the removed noise and texture makes the image look more realistic and unretouched. nine0005

    9. Click OK to apply the changes to the image.

    See also: Using the Shallow Depth of Field Blur filter to simulate a shallow depth of field

    Tool "Blur" softens sharp edges and reduces image detail. How The more this tool is applied to an area, the more blurred that area becomes.

    1. Select the Blur tool . nine0005

    2. On the option selection panel, do the following:

      • Adjust brush nib settings, select mode overlays and intensity.
      • Select the Sample All Layers option to apply the blur to all visible layers. Clear this check box to apply the tool to the active layer only.
    3. Drag the cursor over the image you want to blur.

    Tool "Sharpness" enhances contrast along the edges, increasing the visible sharpness.
