How To Improve Clarity With The Sharpen Tool

Our Sharpen tool makes your photography crystal clear. By enhancing contrast along the edges in your image, it helps undo the appearance of blurry lines and bring your pictures back into perfect focus. 

1.) To begin, just upload a photograph to the BeFunky Photo Editor and choose the Sharpen tool from the Edit menu on the left side of the screen.

Quick Tip: It’s best to use Sharpen at the end of your editing process, to ensure all aspects of your photos are sharpened evenly.

2.) Next, adjust the Amount using the sliding scale.

Quick Tip: Accuracy is important when sharpening. You should view your photo at 100% when using the Sharpen tool to clearly see the effects on your image.

3.) Use the Paint tool to apply Sharpen to only the areas that need it most. Adjust Brush Size to change the surface area you want to cover, Brush Hardness to change the definition of your tool and Brush Strength to control intensity, then use your mouse to apply.

Quick Tip: If you go overboard with Sharpen, you can always undo your work. The icon with two overlapping squares lets you reverse your sharpening, while the icon to the left of it let’s you erase edits.
