Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur Problem Separating...

Dec 8, 2008

I want to blur the background of sports photos (still too much in focus even with lens wide open). I put the key player(s) on one layer and the background on another, then apply a Gaussian blur, which gives me a white line where background meets foreground.

I can painstakingly rubber stamp extend the edge of the background about 10 pixels behind the foreground and that seems to work, but it's painstakingly slow. Is there a better way or even a plug-in?

Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur In CS6

Oct 11, 2012

I am having difficulty with Gaussian Blur. I created a selection outline in an image and then filled it with black. I then selected Gaussian Blurr from the Filter Menu a set the radius to 100 and then deselected my previous selection.

In CS5 the edges faded into the background image however in CS6 the outline of the previous selection was still visible and the Gaussian Blur did not blend the selection as expected. Even ramping the radius up did not solve the issue as the outline still remained visible. how do i resolve this issue in CS6?

Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur In CS5 Corrupting Files

Nov 11, 2010

We just got brand new systems at work less than a month ago and this event has happened twice since then. When using Photoshop CS5 Extended and using Gaussian blur the file becomes block and all layers as well as their masks become corrupted with these blocks.
Here are my system specs...

Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur Filling Object

Jul 23, 2012

Create a shape with the Rounded Rectangle > I apply a Gradient & Bevel
New Layer > Fill with White > Ctrl + Alt + G (clipping mask) > change Layer Blend to Multiply > Opactity to 35% > Filter > Noise > Add Noise 
New Layer > Ctrl + Alt + G > Ctrl + Click on the Rounded Rectangle Shape to create a Selection
From there I am suppose to add a Stroke by right clicking on the object but that doesn't work. The only menu that pops up is a list of my layers. So, rather I select the Rounded Rectangle layer and then click Effects and select Stroke and then set the values for the stroke. Next I am suppose to add a blur.
Blur > Gaussian Blur but the Stroke ends up filling the entire object. No, I didn't set the Blur to like 1,000 it's only set to 5.9 . I tried this on an other computer and the same thing happens. I called Adobe but they were unable to assist even get as far as the Stroke.

Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur On Photo Against Gradient Background?

May 3, 2012

Using PS CS4 on XP. I just got a job back from the printer company & I am noticing some lines that didn't appear on my print out here (on xerox color printer machine) to compare. I didn't really catch them on the proof either, but they used an epson proof and we printed on 100# gloss text stock for the final.
What I have going on is a gradient background (using shape layer and gradient layer style effect) from a white to a light tan. Top to bottom on a regular Letter size sheet. In the upper right hand corner I have a image of a face that had that same light tan in the background. I faded this image into the gradient background by using gaussian blur.

This is not very noticable in the file, but I can tell that it is have to really focus your eyes to see it, but it's there, a line going around the image where the gaussian blur is. I'll attach a photo of the edge. I guess what I'm saying is it is not smooth - the image edges being blurred into the gradient background, but printed off a regular printer, it looks smooth. Is there anything I can do to prevent this in the future?

Photoshop :: Gaussian Blur Versus Smart Sharpen

Jul 29, 2013

As far as I know, gaussian blur is a spatial convolution filter and smart sharpen is a deconvolution filter.So I think that they should be opposite of each other when smart sharpen is at the gaussian blur mode.But we can not remove gaussian blur (applied to a JPEG) with the smart sharpen adjusted for the same radius.

GIMP :: How To Set Radius In Gaussian Blur

Sep 3, 2013

I was using the Gaussian Blur around letters to contrast the background and getting a very wide radius with a very gradual but complete shift in intensity from the edge of the blur to the edge of the letters. That is to say, the blur effect would extend all the way out to the Blur radius fading to nothing and the brightest part of the blur was very near the edge of the letters and not far inside the middle of a letter. That was great!!! Exactly what I wanted!

Then I went to do it again and got the default behavior:

No matter how wide I set the radius in the Gaussian Blur it is still the same width, it is just more faded. And the range of the intensity is dramatically reduced, with the brightest part of the blur far inside the edges of the letters, no matter how much I grow the Alpha to Selection of the letters. Now I am very unhappy.

I tried Reset all Filters, but the 2nd behavior is obviously the default. So how did I do that??? How did I get the 1st behavior? How did I get the Gaussian Blur to extend out so much farther without overwhelming the background? The default behavior of a Gaussian Blur of an Alpha to Selection of letters that are substantially grown is that they completely overwhelms the background and there is hardly any gradient, it is just a uniform halo with little change in intensity.

Xara :: Gaussian Blur Effect

Jul 28, 2013

how to get the desired end result. When applying the Gaussian blur effect, I find that doing this always adds additional width or height to my object which makes the graphic larger than the desired size. To be more specific, I have a rectangle that is 640px by 100px and I want to add an element on top of that is 640px by 4px. I add the Gaussian blur effect to the 640px by 4px object so that my rectangle appears to have depth and my overall graphic is not flat. The problem comes when I export the both elements because the Gaussian blur has now increased the width of my graphic to be larger then desired. Is there a why to add the Gaussian blur effect without increasing the width of my graphic? The final result is a graphic width of 656px.

Paint.NET :: Gradient Versus Gaussian Blur

Apr 25, 2012

I am wondering why the gradients that generate look so dull, and i've experimented with creating the gradient by just filling two colors and then applying gaussian blur. Is there a reason why the gradient looks dull? and is there already a tool for creating a gradient like a gaussian blur provides?

it looks like the gradient tool creates a lot of "in between" color, in my example gray. I've attached an example. The gradient is on the left, gaussian blur on the right.

Illustrator :: Gaussian Blur Displays Smaller In CS4

Mar 20, 2013

I'm using Mac OSX and have just upgraded to CS4, from Illustrator 10. Our house style is a gaussian blur of 10 pixels, but it doesn't display correctly in CS4 - it's much thinner. I've had this problem before and just exported from CS4 then created the blur in Illustrator 10. On Wednesday last week I tried CS4 again and the blurs displayed at the correct size, then on Friday afternoon (I had used the blur tool successfully in the morning) it started making the blurs too thin again.
It's set to 100% on all the different projects with 10 pixel blur, so why are my gaussian blurs thinner in some and not others in CS4, but all the correct width in Illustrator 10? This is really frustrating as it would be such a waste of money not to be able to use CS4, and have to go back to Illustrator 10.

Premiere Pro :: Gaussian Blur Does Not Work On JPEG

Jan 11, 2014

Using Premier Pro CS6, I have placed a JPEG file on the timeline and have tried to blur it via Gaussian Blur.  The instant I move the "Blurriness" number above 0.0, the Program monitor turns black. I have tried some of the other blur functions with similar results (i.e., no blurring).  The blur functions do work on my videos.   Do the various blur functions only work on videos and not still, e.g., JPEG?  If so, is there a workaround to blur a JPEG file?

Photoshop :: Blur Random Curves From One Side To Have Same Blur Distance And Effect On Whole Curve

Feb 24, 2013

I have some random curves (already created) and I want to blur them just from one side to have the same blur distance and effect one the whole curve.

To more precisely describe what I need, I need to create gradient with direction of normal for every "point". The best example I have found so far are borders in Civilization IV game. Here are two examples:

As you can see, there is a solid curve, which gradually blends (i.e. alpha channel is lowered) till the gradient disappears. I have the solid curve and the question is, what would be the simplest way how to do this (the number of curves is around 100) gradient.

Photoshop :: Separating Effects From Their Layers

Jan 28, 2004

Is there any way to seperate a layer from its effects, so that the effects become actual layers that filters can be applied to?

Like if I had an inner shadow, is it possible to remove that shadow effect from the layer itself and make it a seperate layer, so it is still an inner shadow but is its own raster layer, so that it is possible apply a Lighting effects filter to it?

Photoshop :: Separating Into Individual Layers

I wanted to ask about whether it is possible to separate all the pieces of paintings in this document to their individual layers?

I want to make a website and use each of these as graphic so separate documents would be fine too.

These are 100 "boxes" btw, so i cant simply select and Layer via cut all the time

if Im not clear...basically, all the boxes in this image are in 1 single layer, i need to make separate jpgs/pngs for every box, would be great if someone could guide me through...i have removed the background btw.

Photoshop :: Separating One Image Into Layers

Jun 2, 2006

I'm trying to separate a line-art drawing that I took into illustrator to "live trace" and "live color" it (so it is now an AE file) into layers so I can take it into after effects and animate it. Here's the prob:

1. In photoshop, the "extract" filter is not availble to use. why?

2. because I can't extract, I'm having to erase everything I don't need in each layer. Only problem is that the bounding box/anchor point for each layer is the same as the document. I need them to be independent of the document size and instead follow the image in each layer.

I'm using CS2 on a G5 mac.

Photoshop :: Esoteric Gaussian Noise

Jun 22, 2009

I'm using photoshop for vision research and am applying gaussian noise to black backgrounds using Filter -->Add noise --> Gaussian 20%. In CS2 a new random noise pattern would be generated each time I added noise to a different black background -- and this what I needed. But in CS3 & CS4, the same noise pattern is generated every time, and I need to have it generating different noise patterns.Is there a switch I'm missing or is this just something that was changed in CS3 and CS4? This issue occurs on my Mac and Windows CS3 and Vista CS4 machines.
