nice one rob

i some times do some thing like that but i dont all ways make a mask what i do is do the blur to the whole photo normal copy under it and add adjustment layer on the blured copy and invert it and paint back in the blur i find this some times quicker with the same kind of look ;)

russ :cool:

Yeah my way is kinda long winded, I find painting around hair to be an impossible task though which is why I do the whole cutting out thing with the refine edge ;)
Having said that, youve just given me an idea, theres a refine mask tool, boom shall have a go with that tonight ;P

And I know right blitz, pretty much endless capabilities, you heard about the new motion blur fix tool that could be in CS6? should be immense!
