Shake-Reduction tool?

If you’ve not come across it yet, I understand what you’re thinking…

“What the heck is the shake reduction tool? They made a #fixitinpost for reducing camera shake?”

I know! And they totally did and it’s absolutely wonderful!

Let’s talk about what exactly this tool can do for you.

It’s a rather new feature on Adobe Photoshop (CC 2019 version). It was introduced a few months ago and it’s been developed and fine-tuned by Adobe with every update.

Disclaimer : At its current state, it’s not a be-all-end-all solution to reduce camera shake and this is only meant to fix a teeny bit of single directional shake.

Let’s jump into it with an example, shall we?

Terrible shake right?!

Okay it’s not that bad but it’s a visible shake that you’re definitely gonna notice if it’s gonna be printed on packaging (which it was).

Sooo let’s see how you apply shake reduction in photoshop.

It’s a pretty automated filter so I generally don’t have to mess with the settings here

And that’s pretty much it!

Yeah… This pretty much saved the picture for me!

I think this filter is an absolutely wonderful addition to the myriad of features in Photoshop. It comes in handy when there’s a small mess up like the one above!

This article isn’t meant to be a comprehensive guide to this filter sooo…. If you wish to learn a lot more about this tool, go check out this link from Adobe.

Hope you found value in this article!
