Effect cloudy, blurred background the image is popular now than ever.A similar effect can be achieved by means of special settings and shutter speed on the camera.But if you already have an image with a conventional background, and you want to make it blurred, there will only Photoshop.To learn how to achieve this effect is described below.
Pick a photo on which you want to change the background.It is best to choose high-quality image with a major figure in the foreground - in this case, the end result will look much better.Try to avoid pictures with very small details - for example, to make a similar effect in the photo, where the girl badly disheveled hair, it would be difficult.
Now start Adobe Photoshop and open the image with which you will work.On this picture the background is a little blurred, we will enhance the effect.
Now select the tool on the toolbar 'Pen tool' («Feather").On the top panel, select the icon of the pen on the square.
With a pen, placing the contour point, trace a figure that will be in the foreground.In our case it is the figure of the flower girl, and, in addition, we will take the leaves from the foreground.Try to trace accurately, not "cutting off" the image details.All that will remain with us for a loop, and will be a blurred background.If you can not exactly trace the outline, it is best to grab more space than a smaller - in the future it will be possible to correct.Sewing case it would be called SEAM.
Click on the image, right-click and select 'Make selection' («Make Selection").Now your object is selected by a dotted line.
Select the top menu item 'Select' («Isolation"), and then the 'Inverse' («Reverse").Now, we have highlighted the background and not the object.
now in the top menu, select the tab 'Filter' («Filter"), then the 'Blur' («Stain"), then the 'Gaussian Blur' («Blur Gaussian").
In the next window set the desired value.In this case we choose 20.
Then, if necessary, take the tool 'Blur tool' («Blur") and a fine brush further blur the border around the object.Try not to grab everything he outline to get a realistic picture.
Now save the image in the desired format.
