+$As an illustrator, I often use digital photos as my basic raw material, so I am always after ways to get that extra inch of narrative from the scenes I create.
Photoshop的+$Blur tools are great for doing just that. By creating the illusion of motion, or by playing with the depth-of-field to emphasise certain elements within the scene, it is possible to tease new life from previously 'flat' pictures.
+$While Gaussian Blur, Motion Blur and Zoom Blur have long been familiar terms toPhotoshop中+$users, it's often easy to be a bit heavy-handed with these and other blurring filters. Their effects can quite easily end up looking too recognisable and obvious, and so often these very useful tools are overlooked altogether.
+$In this quick tutorial you will work on a photo-montage in its 'flat' state, and, by applying a subtle mix of Motion, Radial, Lens, Gaussian and Smart blurs, will give the montage a much stronger sense of action than it had previously.
+$The emphasis will be on usingPhotoshop的+$Blur tools in more creative ways - using techniques that improve your illustrations, rather than trying to accurately mimic real photography.
