How to Fix Blurry Pictures on Android

Fix Blurry Pictures Android Featured

Did the pictures of your precious moments turn out blurry because you didn’t have a good grip of the phone? A potential solution is to simply take multiple shots of your favorite moment. But if you’re stuck with just one blurred example of the photo, it isn’t easy to fix blurry pictures without professional tools.

Let’s find out how to overcome the problem of blurry images in the easiest manner. We will cover native camera features and third-party apps which remove blurred regions using AI enhancements. We can also use these techniques to remove the blur in older pictures imported from printed photographs.

Use Android Camera’s Native Functions to Fix Blur

Most higher versions of Android have native, AI-based editing features, such as skins and filters to correct any blurs. Look closely for any included options, such as “natural,” “clear,” “fresh,” or “tranquil.”

Blurry Android Pic Example

The following example is an extreme picture which is heavily blurred. In most cases, it happens when the camera is shaking slightly while the pictures are taken. The Android camera’s native functions may be able to fix it. If not, then we need to use a professional app to get better results.

Use Remini App to Fix Blur in Android Photos

Remini is one of the best photo enhancements apps in Play Store.

To use the app, you need to create an account using an email or Facebook/Google. You can easily create additional accounts to keep trying the free version, which fixes up to 10 images. The Pro version has advanced unblurring capabilities.

Go to the “Enhance” menu on the app’s homescreen.

The enhance function helps optimize your photos for enhanced facial features and a sharper background. It can help reduce noise and strange-looking pixels and works well on low-resolution and blurry photos. Click “use it” to proceed with the deblurring.

As soon as you select the target picture, click the red button at the bottom which will “create a task.” This will display an ad while the task is being processed. Of course, you can remove these ads in the Pro version.
