Image focusing

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody.  I am Gerry, an Italian paintNet lover.  I use PaintNet for my photo compositions and many times I need to put out of focus only some parts (i.e. the outline) of a subject but PaintNet focus effects adjust focus on all the picture.   Is it possible to do this only on some selected part ? Thank you

This is how I do it:

Duplicate the layer with your image and apply to the image on the new layer Gaussian Blur (blur the image as much as you need). Then, use the eraser tool (choose a large brush with a tolerance of 0) to erase the parts you want to be sharp. :)
