Step 1: Start with uploading an image to Photo Editor. Go into the Edit menu and choose Funky Focus.

Step 2: To make a circular shaped blur, use Radial mode. When you select Radial, a round target will appear on your screen. Adjust its size by clicking on the edges and dragging, and place it over the part of your photo you want to remain in focus.

Pro Tip :

While using Radial mode, hold the Shift key to lock the aspect ratio as you adjust the size of your focal point selection tool.

Step 4: Linear mode alters focus so it fades away from your subject in straight lines. Just choose Linear, and four lines will appear on your photograph. Whatever parts of your photo are within these lines will remain in focus. You can click on them to adjust their sizing, orientation and more.

Linear mode is ideal for creating depth of field. For shallow depth of field, select a narrow point of focus. For more depth, widen your focal point.
