Blur the Photo Background: Video Tutorial
Use Photoshop Elements to Blur the Background
Do you have a photo that would be great with a blurred background but you've already shot the photo in full focus? Create a blurred background effect in Photoshop Elements by following these steps:
1. Open your photo, and save it with a new name. Click on the Selection Brush Tool (grouped with the Quick Selection Tool), and highlight the part of your photo you would like to keep in focus.
2. Click on the Select menu and choose Inverse. The background of your photo will now be selected.
3. Click on the Filter menu, select Blur, and then select Gaussian Blur. Click on and hold the slider, and then move it to adjust the blur effect to your liking. You can also enter a number in the Radius box to achieve the effect. Click OK when you are finished. Note: To remove the dotted lines, click on the Select menu and choose Deselect.
