Shake Reduction



Today I finally got a copy of CC. There’s a new feature in this software that I’d been excited about trying out–shake reduction. I wish I could use a tripod for all my shots, but the reality is that I’d miss a lot of shots if I used a tripod. And since my lens does not have image stabilization, I run the risk of motion blur due to camera shake. This tool is designed to help that.

The first image is after applying the filter, and the second image is before. The tool generates noise, so I chose the minimum amount of sharpening, and then I added smoothing to control the noise. Fully zoomed in, this photo is a bit noisier than the original, but otherwise, I think the effect works pretty well.
