The easiest way is using Microsoft Paint

The Unsharp Mask feature in Microsoft Paint, a graphic drawing program, allows you to easily sharpen or blur images. Microsoft Paint is generally included with the Windows operating system.

  •  Click the Windows button, go to Paint and run it. Press “Ctrl + O” keys at the same time and browse your files.
  • Double click on the image you want to open in the program. Click the Layer and Duplicate buttons on screen to create a layer to use with the layer mask.
  • Click “Customize”.
  • This will open the Options dialog. Adjust the clipping, radius, and strength of the mask, depending on the meaning you want to give the image.
  • The settings in this menu vary depending on the quality and size of the image you are deblurring.
  • The dialog box helps determine the correct settings. Apply a radius setting of 2 to 3 pixels and a strength of 100. Change the crop to 10. Adjust all the functions until you are satisfied with the result.
  • Click the “OK” button to apply the changes.
  • Use the Unsharp Mask layer slider to adjust the opacity. Adjust until you get the sharpness you want in the image.
  • The best is usually 60 to 70 percent opacity. Click the Layer Selection, Merge, and Merge all  Flatten to create the final image.
