Hi there, this time I just want to share with you guys a cool freeware program. Basically allows its users to enhance or edit images or pictures. The idea behind this video is actually from a YouTube friend of mine is from nitroustyman. I do hope I pronounced that right. And it says here that I have a suggestion for video, find some programs to unblur pictures. So I’m actually going to show you one program that does that but there are bunch of other image editing software out there. It’s just that I think GIMP does that and it’s absolutely free.
So I think it’s pretty cool but I don’t want to take credit for finding it because I had found it from a subscription of mine called Scratch Chalk. And he hasn’t called tutorial videos about the GIMP and other programs that you might want to check out. And also I advise you guys to check out the DeadFury16, my YouTube partner. He has a great tutorial videos that you might want to check out.
On with the point of this vid, so basically I’m going to show you how I unblur images or I how unblur blurred images using GIMP. Fair warning, I’m not really a pro in this field but I just want to show you how I did mine. And I assure you guys you can do way better of what I’m going to show you, so let’s just get on with it.
So first is this blurred image of a pizza. I’ll just drive it to the program to show you. So let’s wait for this to load. Okay there we go, so this is my blurred pizza. So you can have two options as you edit your image or as you want to unblur image, this is the first option using a blur or sharpen tool because it sharpens actually the opacity of the blur. So you just click on sharpen here and basically you can sharpen certain sections of your image and you can do this manually.
Another option is quicker and this is using filters. So just go to filters then go to enhance, then go to unsharp mask and it will open a window like so. I’m just going to minimize this. So with this, you are able to alter, well basically your image and it’s all up to you on how you will set your preferences on how your image would look like. And for this case, you are the one who’s going to set the degree of sharpness, you want your image to have so I’ll just enter some values here, so wherever it is that you’re entering in this field is reflected under preview image here. So I’m just going to click, so it’s up to you on how you set your values as you unblur or sharpen your image. So, I’m just going to click okay, wait for it to load but I’m going to show you my original picture so that we can compare.
This is how it looks like before and now it looks like this. So as I have said, you could do way better than this but just clearly shows how sharper and clearer it is from the original one and that’s basically how I unblur blurred images. So I’m just going to try another one. I’m going to close this. At this time, I’m going to try an image of a train which is drag that to our program here, there we go. So basically this is a blurred image of a train and going to apply the same methods, so click filters then enhance, then in short mask and then basically put on your values here. So put in your values, so I’m just going to click 50 and that’s right and click okay. So there you go.
And again to compare, this is basically my original image and this is my edited image. So that is how I unblur my images using GIMP and I also basically just check out the other tools that you could use here. There s is a smudge tool, a burn tool, text tool, bucket fill tool and many other tools that you can use to further enhance your image.
So there you go. Actually that is a program that I wanted to share and thank you for watching this video. And also of course thanks to nitroustyman for the suggestion. I do appreciate that so there you go. Again, thanks for watching and just have fun.
