Adobe Elements "shake reduction" "feature"

I've been using Elements since v6, so I am sticking with it :-) I recently purchased the DVD version of v15 as a backup to my unbacked-up v13. A new option is "shake reduction". Whether it is a feature or gimmick I can not say at this point. I "tried" it only twice, uneducated, as shown below.

1/4-sec exposure:

Original:


Processed with "automatic" shake reduction. I think this looks better - the stars, signage, and shirt details seemed improved.


Below is using the manually adjustable shake reduction (you can pick an area, and the sensitivity, with a before/after preview). I only tried it once without reading the instructions :-)

1/20 sec.


Looks like it picked up some white sharpening artifacts (?) in the surrounding black.


It is easier to see the difference when you view them side-by-side, such as in Faststone.

I'm sure you can do most or all of this by just going though the "sharpening" option, but these options are here if you want them and they may do more improving when used properly.. It took about 20 seconds or so to process - YMMV.

Photoshop CC has a similar feature, the short answer is to try and see if works for that image, some yes others no.

nothing gimmicky about it. It is a useful tool for correcting motion blur.

It sorta works, to an extent...
The tradeoff is generally some kind of artifact, like a hard contour or outline, but the image gets noticeably better if not zoomed in too much.
Let's say if input is 16MP, motion blur is not huge and output is 6-8MP it works wonders.

There are several haloing artifacts in the second museum photo; the exit sign and the vent (?) above it; the left arm of the woman on the right; the guy in black's shoe; the women with the yellow jacket's pants. Maybe you can adjust the level of correction?

Yes, there is a manual option. The photo you reference is the automatic version.
