How to Blur photo background

A particularly quick and popular way to edit the background of photos, is to focus blur into photoshop. On the one hand, the main motif comes more into focus and, on the other hand, not so attractive backgrounds are cleverly concealed.

This blurring effect is also known as the bokeh effect. You can read everything about the topic in our guide to the bokeh effect and how to achieve it?

A more detailed guide for blurring images, check out the guide how to blur the background in lightroom.

Blur photo background with Photoshop

If you want to blur the background of a photo using Photoshop, you can do it in a few simple steps:

1. Open the desired image in Photoshop by dragging and dropping the file into the program window. In the layers box your photo automatically as referred.

2. Click the right mouse button on the background plane and select plane.

3. The duplicate created in this way is automatically referred to as the background copy. Select this level by clicking on it.

4. This will open a small preview window in which you can change the pixel value of the duplicated layer as you wish and thus blur the image.

5. Try out different values and observe the changes in the preview image.

6. Apply the changes by clicking Ok.

7. Now the entire photo is initially out of focus. Now all you have to do is edit the image elements that you want to see in focus in the finished image.

8. For this, you can, for example, the eraser gum-mi use tool from the toolbar. Click it and choose in the top menu bar a soft tip. Then move the eraser with the left mouse button pressed over the image elements that should be sharpened again.

9. Once you have finished editing your photo, you can save it via File > Save As, for example as a JPEG file. Both previously existing levels are merged into a single image.

Remove photo background with Photoshop

This is particularly easy with an image editing program such as Photoshop.

• Open the image you want in Photoshop. To do this, proceed as described in the section “Blurring the photo background with Photoshop” under points 1 and 2.

• Your photo will be in the Layer box again as a basic round. It is marked with a small lock and thus “secured” by Photoshop - it cannot be edited.

• To remove the background from your photo, you click with the right mouse button on the background plane and choose level. It is now renamed to level 0 and is free to edit.

• Now use the Quick-of-choice tool from the toolbar

• Now hold down the left mouse button and move over the areas that you want to cut out and then press the Delete key on your keyboard.

• A gray and white checkerboard pattern will now appear, which will represent the future transparent area of your photo.

• With all parts of the background removed in this way, go to File > Save As and select PNG as the format. Only then will the background of your photo remain transparent. (For example, JPEG does not support transparencies.)
