Seeing is believing: Photoshop CC camera shake reduction is mind-blowingly good

Yesterday Adobe released Photoshop CC, the latest version of the image-editing application that is now only available through a digital subscription.

One of the most exciting new features (besides the godsend editable rounded rectangles) is the camera shake reduction filter. In 2011 it was only a technology demo.

Features like this often looks great in a demo because the scenario is so carefully crafted it’s guaranteed to work exceptionally well, but falls over with less than ideal everyday scenarios. Having said that, sometimes, a few gimmicks actually work and leave me in amazement.

A combination of poor indoor lighting and a hyper puppy resulted in a blurry photo of an otherwise amazing dog pose. After installing Photoshop CC today, I decided to give the camera reduction feature a whirl. The result is nothing short of amazing. No it’s not perfect, but it turned an otherwise unfortunate throwaway to a pretty memorable snap.

If you’re a photographer, I’m not telling you to get Photoshop CC, but get Photoshop CC.

  1. I agree that Photoshop CC and its new shake reduction feature are an easy and convenient way to get more out of pictures. Speaking as a Photographer, most photographers are well, frankly snobs. So a lot of them will scoff as this feature. But in the real world, you have to retouch Photos for people who are not professional photographers, or sometimes things happen in the field and the shot isn’t as crisp as it could be. This is a great feature, especially if you have someone who wants you to edit their facebook photos for example.
