Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Path Blur filter, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
- In this movie I'm going to look at an…obvious use of the Path Blur filter,…giving some motion to these cyclists,…and a less obvious,…making this into an abstract image.…Let's begin with the obvious.…I'll come to my Layers panel…and right-click…to the right of the Layer name…to convert my background layer…to a smart object.…So I'm going to go to the Filter menu,…Blur Gallery,…Path blur.…And I need to start by pulling my Path blur…in the direction of their motion.…
So this is the start of the blur…this is the end,…I'm going to spin that around…(mouse clicking)…and…manipulate this…in to position.…Currently I have a centered blur,…which means that it's blurring the pixels on both sides.…I'm going to take that off,…don't want that.…So I'm going to increase the speed now,…and…with the start of my blur…I want the end point speed…to zero.…
(mouse clicking)…At the end of my blur,…I'm going to increase the end point speed.…(mouse clicking)…Obviously, I don't want to go too far in this case.…(mouse clicking)…And I think I'm going to take the overall speed…
