Lupin with Photoshop Trick

This is a Photo of Lupin using a standard Photoshop Filter/Blur/Radial with the following settings. First Duplicate the main photo layer, they apply this blur to it:

 Blur Tip

When applied the Background Copy layer will look like this:


The I erase the main area of the flower so the background flower layer shows through and set the Fill of the duplicate blurred layer to 53% so it is subtle and light.

Then Edit/Free Transform to spread the Blur effect so it won’t be too uniform.


 Photoshop Radial Blur  CLICK for larger image to see portion on duplicate layer that was erased.

This will also show the Duplicate Blurred layer FILL setting

Finshed Photo


For those who like a little pizazz to their Photography. Simple trick to add punch! Of course, there are always those who prefer the normal shot… ;o]

  1. This is a nice effect – thanks for the tutorial!

  2. Peace be upon you Jayleen,

    I agree with the above, thank you for posting the tutorial. Its always wonderful to learn something new. Its a curious effect, more emotive that just a normal blur. Perhaps I’ll find a photograph to transform sometime soon. In this case, the normal shot is very nice too.

    Kind regards,

    Dont be sad
