    Default Editing to B&W

    Im converting some photos that I wish to have in the hallway And Im having trouble with one concerning a messy background. I have managed to blur this using gaucassian?? blur but im not sure of the outcome on one of the figures.

    To give a better example do i have permission to upload the picture on here ?

    hi thatbloke

    are you using Adobe Photoshop if so were you have used gaucassian blur
    i would use the lens blur which is under the filter's tab blur
    make a copy of the image on the top layer apply the lens blur to the whole image then using a layer mask on the lens blur image invert the layer mask and paint in the blur around the top of the girls head with a soft brush at 40% opacity flow set at 50% if you dont get it right first time just invert your paint colour from white to black and paint out the blur on the layer mask
    as i say to any one ive showed over the years how to use Photoshop
    i tell them its all about non destructive editing is photoshop and how to use Layer mask's
    hope this is some help
