Now that we've done although this nice clean up and color and sharpening work,…I actually want to add a bit of Motion Blur.…And I want to do this at this stage because the image is at a really good spot…and now I'm ready to distort it a little bit or add a little bit of blur.…So to do that we'll click in our topmost layer then we'll press…Shift+Option+Command+E to merge to top and let's go ahead and name this layer motion.…Next, I want to and do this as a Smart Object.…That will give us a lot of flexibility. So right-click your layer and choose…Convert to Smart Object.…
Next, navigate to your Filter pulldown menu and here we're going to choose Blur…and then Motion Blur.…Now the thing that's interesting about Motion Blur is what we need to do is to…determine the angle right, right, and so we can move this around and look at the blur.…Sometimes if you exaggerate it, it can help you see which way you really want to…create that blur and then bring it back down to something a bit more reasonable.…
