Is there something like a blur paint brush?


Recommended Posts

I like the effect of Gaussian blur. I was wondering if there's something that I don't know about that can create a Gaussian blur effect, but allow me to control where it's applied like you do with the paint brush. I've tried moving the hardness of the eraser tool down to 0% and running along the edges to create the blur, but it's still not soft enough for what I'm looking for, unless I make the brush size huge and then it overlaps areas I don't want to erase. I can work around this by cutting things from one later and putting them on another so that I can create the blur, and then merge them back down, but I was hoping there might be an easier way.

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Thanks for the suggestion, @Eli. While poking around the tool, I couldn't see how to build a brush that just applies a blur. I saw how I could apply a colored, stylized brush, but I'm not sure about something that blurs instead of applying color. Would you be able to point me in the direction of accomplishing just the blur brush?

I misunderstood your request. I thought you wanted to paint with a blurred brush. That is why I propossed Brush Factory.

I agree Tr's Dodge and burn can help you blurring detail on an image.

Funny story; I was planning to make a filter brush plugin like TR did, but I didn't have the time to make the resources to do it until TR made that very plugin. That's why I made brush factory for brush dynamics and not for applying a filter.

Of course, TR covered only the basics (colors and adjustments) while I'd be covering filters. What I need in that regard is a way to read all filters and apply them to a surface so I can copy over from that surface (it'd be like a clone stamp, but with the anchor point in the same coordinates on a separate image). Well, there's an idea if somebody gets bored :D

 

A year later I did make an extension of it.
