    Then, we ensure that we've clicked the right layer that we want to edit. The layers are at the right-hand side. This effect works best on an image that has not the best quality. We can also make an illusion that the picture has a better quality.

    We zoom in. We can do that by either clicking the magnifying glass in the corner or by pressing "Ctrl" and "+" on the keyboard. In this video, we can see that the image does not have the best quality. The picture has some sort of speckles and noise.

  7. 7
    If we click "Despeckle" again, the image will be a little more foggier. This effect does not sharpen the image. It is smoothing it out. We can use the effect with a sharp image effect as well. In this video, we may want to sharpen the eyes and make the ears smoother. It just depends for what we are going.
