How To Create Dream-Like Effects With Blur

The Blur tool takes photo editing to a new level. Whether you wish to blur photos to create depth of field, add surreal effects or draw your audience’s attention to what matters most–this tool lets you do all it all, and more!  

Step 1 - To get started, upload your image to the Photo Editor. Next, go into the Edit menu and choose Blur


Step 2 - Choose Adjust from the Blur tool menu. You can control the intensity of your photo blurring using the Amount slider. 

Step 3 - The second option in the Blur tool menu is Paint, which gives you the ability to blur selected parts of your image.

Choose Paint from the menu, then adjust Brush Size, Brush Hardness and Brush Strength. Paint over the parts of the image you want in focus to create a cool dreamy effect.


Step 4 - Once you’re happy with your work, save your image to your computer, BeFunky, Facebook, Google Drive or Dropbox.
