Images suitable for camera shake reduction

If you’ve played around with the camera shake reduction feature in Photoshop CC, you might have noticed it works best with decently lit still camera images having low noise. The following types of still images are particularly suitable for shake reduction:

  • Indoor or outdoor images captured using a lens with a long focal length
  • Indoor images of a static scene taken with a slow shutter speed and no flash

In addition, shake reduction can help sharpen blurred text in images affected by camera motion.

Here’s the documentation for the feature.

Photoshop CC | The magical camera shake reduction

If I had to put my finger on the Photoshop CC feature that comes closest to “magic”, I’d pick Camera Shake Reduction. For most users, it is the powerful tool that deblurs pictures that got ruined in a sudden shake of the camera. For some, it breathes life right back into memorable moments that can never be captured again. Magic.
