Touch Controls

Drag the disc to center your Perspective Blur, and slide right and left to change the intensity.

A disc will appear in the middle of the screen. This sets the point of origin for the Perspective Blur. Drag it to move it at any time while creating your blur.

At the top of the screen, you’ll see a blue bar labelled Slide to adjust. This bar displays how much blur is applied to the image. Initially it will be set at 0% - no blur.

Drag your finger to the right, anywhere outside the disc, to increase the amount of blur. Slide your finger left again to reduce the blur. You can also keep moving the disc around after applying the blur to see how the effect looks in different positions.

Interface

Control and edit your changes with simple buttons.

The buttons along the bottom of the screen offer two modes of Perspective Blur, and four options:

  • Positional mode radiates a blur outwards from the disc in every direction.
  • Directional mode radiates a blur from only one side of the disc.
Pro Tip

When you are in Directional mode, the disc is larger and includes an arrow that displays which way your blur is pointing. You can spin this arrow around to change the blur's direction.
