Blur Filter

This filter creates a softening effect by averaging the pixels next to the edges.




  1. Select the bitmap.
  2. From the Bitmap menu, point to Filters and select Blur.

    The Blur tab appears in DesignCentral, and a sampling marquee appears on the screen.

  3. Move the marquee over the area to be sampled and adjust its size.
  4. In the Blur tab of DesignCentral, adjust the following parameters:

    Amount and Radius

    Specifies the percentage of blurring that will be introduced (values are 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%). Higher values will produce more blurred images.


    When checked, this allows you to see a preview while adjusting the Amount and Radius parameters.

  5. Click Apply.
