So I thought perhaps I’d share different digi tips as I discover them.

So here is my first one!

Digi Tip of the Day: Blurring faces

Ever need to blur the face of someone because you want to post a lo online – but you don’t have permission to show that person’s picture? Well, here’s how to easily blur someone’s face.

(all instructions were done in PSE 5 – sorry – I don’t know other versions!)

1. select marquee tool

2. drag a box (or oval) around what you want to blur in your photo

3. select filter – pixelate – fragment (or ctrl f)

4. repeat until you get the desired level of blur

I hope that helps! Here is a layout I did using this technique!

And here’s the page I made with a blurred face.
