Challenge - Digital Challenges : use a filter to simulate
by Sande Krieger
posted 09/03/08
Galleries: Scrapbooking

 This weeks challenge is to use a filter to simulate "motion" in your layout. 

In Photoshop or PHotoshop Elements you can find the Motion Blur filter by going to:

Filter>Blur>Motion Blur

I used this filter on the kids on the right side of the teeter-totter so it would look like the big kids on the left were propelling them upward. Here's how I did it.

1. I copied the background layer of the photo by pressing Control J (Command J on the Mac).

2. I used the Lasso tool to select the kids on the right side of the teeter-totter.

3. I went to Filter>Blur>Motion Blur and I increased the blur until I got the amount I wanted. The reason I did this on a copy of the background layer (or photo) is so that I could reduce the opacity if later on I thought I had too much blur.

You guys are so creative, I can't wait to see what you come up with.
