Field Blur in Photoshop CS6. In this Photoshop tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to produce Field Blur effect in any image using Adobe Photoshop CS6 by learning how to use an incredible tool known as the Blur Tool. When you apply the field blur effect to your image, you are going to be able to adjust its amount differently for different parts of the image, giving it an overall amazing focus.
1. Open whatever image you would like to work on in Adobe Photoshop. This is the image we will be using in this tutorial:
2. Go to: Filter > Blur > Field Blur
Your entire image will go blurry by default settings.
3. Also notice the appearance of a circular icon. This icon is called a pin. You can simply adjust the amount of blurring by clicking the outer ring of this pin and dragging the cursor clockwise or anticlockwise, thereby increasing or decreasing the amount of blurring.
4. But of course you can make the same changes by simply using the blur slider as shown below:
5. So far the blur effect has been spread out on your entire image uniformly. But what you need to do now is only apply the blur effect to certain regions of the image. And to do this you are going to need more pins! So move your cursor around to another spot on the image and you will see an icon like that shown below:
6. Now click and another pin will appear. Notice how you can operate only one pin at a time.
7. You can also move pins around by clicking their centers and dragging them down to different positions. You can add as many pins as you like and each pin can have a different blur setting.
8. For a sharp focus on a particular aspect of your image, click the pin and change its blur setting to zero. Refer to the image below:
9. When you’re sure you want to keep these changes, click OK.
That’s it, babe.
