Can I fix a blurry photo wiith CS3?


Help! I'm still something of a novice and I did 3/4 of a photo shoot this morning with my shutter speed set too low. Nearly all my images are blurred. I have CS3 but am just beginning to learn it. Is there any chance I can fix my shots?

  Sharpening can't help a slightly blurred photo, but you can't fix it. Shoot it blurred, it stays blurred.

  Melinda, you have, it sounds like, learned the lesson we all have to learn the hard way it seems. The old saying goes, "I won't make that mistake again", LOL. Gregory is correct, you can if there is a slight softness, give the photo the impression of being sharper. If you have motion blur, which occurs with a slower than required shutter speed, what's done is done. Sometimes you can concentrate on other parts of the photo which have appeal of their own and may take attention away from the blurred parts.

  Thanks, guys. Fortunately I recognized the problem before the shoot was over and still have about 150 shots I can work with. But most of the other 350 are a loss. It makes me sick - I don't know WHY I didn't notice sooner...

  Don't feel bad. We could all tell horror stories of goof ups. ;-)
