Blurred photo border?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm new (took me a while to even find out how to post!) and I would like to ask a question and I hope it's in the correct forum (someone tell me if not)

So I don't really know exactly how to describe this but can anyone tell me a plugin to download or how to add a border around a photo that doesn't crop the picture and the border is like a blurred version of the photo all evenly around a square photo. Confused yet? I've attached a photo to make it simpler to understand post-143044-0-62258200-1443431984_thumb.. I used the iPhone app "Instasize" to get the sample image. It would be really great if anyone of you could help me because I need this not to crop the photo I want the border to be around the photo and to be perfectly around the photo. If it helps, I will only be using exactly square images (1000x1000, 800x800, etc.) Thank you everyone :)

  1. get an Android
  2. open the image twice
  3. resize one to the new size
  4. add gaussian blur
  5. pick a transparent color for the background color
  6. canvas resize the other image to the new size centered
  7. copy the second image and paste as new layer over the first.
  8. Watch the video - pay close attention to the mouse cursor

 

Another variation would be (But not as accurate)

  1. get an Android
  2. resize image
  3. duplicate layer
  4. blur bottom layer
  5. resize top layer to suit using move tool

 

There's 2 more variations I can think of but they aren't as accurate as the first.android-smile.png

Go out there and be amazing. Have Fun, TR
