Adobe- hunt Photoshop is a fantastic tool used when creating, editing or designing images. However, with its incredibly versatile range of features - finding the simplest tasks can seem daunting. Because it is Photoshop so complex, we will move on to several different methods to achieve the desired results to answer the question of how to blur the background in Photoshopin?


How to blur the background in Photoshop?

You may have thought that this button should allow rain, but really, the tear on the toolbar is the one for a relatively small and inaccurate type of work. Select the image you want to edit. Click the drop-by-drop button on the toolbar. Go ahead and select the brush size and dot at the top of the screen.

In the drop-down menu, you have the option to choose on which surface the image will be focused. This allows you to lighten, darken, sharpen, etc. You will now choose your blur strength. You can go very subtle (which would allow more control) or you can do it with a strong blur. The lower the number the more subtle the tool. 

So now you’re blurring! Hold the mouse over the parts of the background you want to edit. Move the brush in a circular motion (similar to a spray can on a program Paint). That’s it, you’ve created your very blurred background image. Don't forget to save it.


Lasso tool

These tools are useful for several reasons, but today we will only focus on how to help you blur the background of the image. There are several versions of this tool according to your needs. There are regular lasso, polygonal lasso (best if your background has straight edges), magnetic lasso (let Photoshop determine the foreground and background for you - if you want to give up the rule). There is another option that is not related to lasso, a tool for quick masks, which is completely free and the best for super precise selections. If you are impatient, this may not be the best choice.

Select the image you want to edit. Click the lasso tool toward the top of the toolbar. (Hold down the mouse and this will show you the ability to use any of the three tools mentioned.) Or, just enter L as a shortcut.

Draw around the part of the background you want to blur. If you decide to use the quick mask tool, you can find it hidden in the toolbar at the bottom. Looks like someone put a circle in the square. 

So now that this boundary is moving around your choice you probably want to make it blurry. Go to the top of the screen and select “Filter-> Blur"


Types of fogging

U Photoshop-There are 9 different blur styles. Let’s cross them out so you can choose the perfect style for you.


This blur tool allows you to take the average color within the selected area and blur it. Creates smooth transitions.


Blur or Blur More

This option does more or less what the name itself says. Blurring. He takes the components from the inside and carefully darkens them. It is especially good for use where different colors meet. If you are looking for a more dramatic effect, choose "blur more" which will increase the fog by about three times.


Box Blur

This type of blur reads the average color value of your selection, followed by the pixels next to the selection. He mixes them together to make them nice and smooth, without any lines. Tip: A brush of larger radius will create more blur.


Gaussian blur

This is easy. Use this tool to adjust the amount you want your image to blur. There will be a small pop-up box with a slider for that.


Motion blur

Trying to make it look like the train is moving even though it has been in operation for years? Yes, movement movement is your type. This will allow you to adjust the direction and intensity of the background image. It's like taking photos from a moving car.


Radial Blur

This is equivalent to the zoom and zoom function on the camera. You can adjust the radial blur from 1 to 100 using the radial spin or radial zoom options.


Smart Blur

This option gives you the ability to be incredibly accurate. You can change the blur radius for a specific area that blurs the pixels at a specific distance; or change the threshold that indicates which type of pixel you want to see blur.


Surface Blur

Replacing the surface leaves the center of the image blurred to your specification, but the edges remain sharp. Play with threshold and radius ”to get different cool effects.


Lens Blur

You may want certain aspects of the background to stay in focus and others to be blurred. This tool will allow you to achieve the depth of field you are looking for. There are three choices for lens blur, faster (for faster views), focal length blur (pixel depth adjustment), and invert (which inverts the alpha channels of your map depth source).

Since 2017. we cooperate with Digitizer. Extremely precise and professional cooperation. We are seeing results, and given the industry we are involved in, a lot depends on the marketing that Digitizer does. The results are best seen in the number of people who come to the interview. Every time I suggested something, the Digitizer team made sure to make changes to the presentation. Of course I recommend them. They have already been recommended.
