Task 8 How to Use Blur to Sharpen

Although it might sound paradoxical, you actually can use the Blur filter to sharpen an image. Specifically, you can blur one area of your image to make the other area look sharper. In this task, you intentionally soften the background areas of an image, making the subject appear sharper in comparison. This is a good approach for images that are too soft to be remedied using the Unsharp Mask or Smart Sharpen filter alone.

1. Open the File in Photoshop
