Blur focus

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a blur focus effect in Photoshop. You will need to use the Gaussian blur for this effect. I have used a free stock image of a dog which is available from You can find a list of places for stock images here.

Blur focus

Step 1

Open an image you wish to add a blur focus effect to.

Step 2

Make a selection around the area you wish to add a blur focus to. You can either use the polygon lasso tool or the quick mask tool for creating a selection.

Step 3

Inverse the selection by choosing Select > Inverse and you should get the following image like below.

Step 4

Select Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and add a 3 or 4 pixel radius, depending on the size of your image.

You should now have a blur focus effect.
