Photoshop's Genius Shake Reduction Tool Fixes Blurry Shots Like Magic

Everyone who is not a good photographer is a bad photographer—a condition that's only made worse because we insist on documenting our lives with abysmal smartphone cameras. And of all of the terrible things that ruin photos, blur from shooting at slow shutter speeds is amongst the most common ailments. Photoshop to the rescue!

We don't know much about how the tool works just yet, but we're assuming there's a little more to it than just selecting it under the Filter>Sharpen menu.
