Smile IPhone Pictures are ALL blurry?

So al of my pictures have been fine and when I go look at them they'll be blurry for a few seconds then be fine. So I took a picture today and it took the picture fine but froze all of a sudden. I went to go look at my pictures and it said there are no pictures but you can go take some on the camera or download them from iTunes. Well I went to go look at the pictures and some were replaced by only one of the pictures I took and then some were a beige like color. I looked at them and they were blurry but didn't go clear even the ones that were fine before. I deleted the pictures that I just took but it's still all blurry! I have an iPhone 4. What should I do to get my pictures back to normal? Please help me!!!!! Thank you!!

Are you shooting them with HDR on? I noticed when I use that and the people aren't still, they come out blurry sometimes.

Well even the pictures that are the ones where you press the button to turn off the phone and the exit button are all blurry. As I was looking for some pictures from when I first got the phone, I saw that all of the first pictures I took were totally fine. I also don't know how to post pictures on here. So I'll try to figure that out so you can have some samples of what they look like.

The HDR isn't on and it hasn't been on ever.

I had the same problem happening with my phone. It was a iphone 4. The lens was sticking out just enough that it got scratched. It made most of my photos unbearable to view. You can get the lens replaced for about 20 bucks if you do it yourself.

Have you gotten a new case lately? If so, take the case off and take a few pics without it.

The lens isnt sticking out and even the pictures I don't take with the actual camera are like that.

When you post, look below, you will see Attach Files. Then you browse to your pics on your computer and then updload them.

Agreed...I've had a friend that thought the camera was bad on his 4s and turned out that the case he had was reflecting light off of the cut out of it for the camera and was causing the blur

So the pictures are all blury, and in one of them, it showed how it was last night where a big black box was covering a few of the pictures. So I dont know why it did that but it was after I took a picture to see if it was fixed somehow. It takes a long time for the album to come up when I go to look at them.

those look like thumbnails...jailbroken? or not?

Something is monkeyed up in there...nothing to do with your lens.

I assume you did the simplest things like restart...resync, correct?

If you've done those, you'll have to do a restore...or if you are not on the very latest ios, you could try an update.

if you are close to a Apple store I just go there so it can either get fixed or replaced. people are to OCD about some stuff. but I'd be back to apple in a minute if my equipment isn't working right. even if your out of warranty still no harm in talking to them.

Restore as new. Not sure those internet pics are supposed to be clear. Are websites you visit clear? Text in apps?

Blurry pictures

Try tapping the screen first to aid in focusing. That might clear them up.

I had the same problem: all my saved photos, despite being clear when taken, were all blurry.

Here's what fixed it: I quit all my apps by closing them in the task bar. Then, I completely shut down my iPhone followed by a restart.
