Here at Fizz we recently got asked to add a gradient blur to a photo for a website. It’s a simple task once you know how to do it. In this Photoshop tutorial I will show you how we did it stage by stage. This is the donor image we are going to use as it has natural depth and foreground interest.
The plan will be to keep the cyclists in pink sharp, but create a natural blurred gradient that starts on the far right, but then ends before it gets to the cyclists we want to remain sharp.
