Simulating Action with the Blur Filters

Did you ever try to get kids to stand still so you could take their picture, only to find yourself with a ho-hum batch of static pictures where everyone looks frozen in their tracks? Photoshop Elements includes a couple of blur filters that can create a sense of motion where none exists. In many cases, you’ll want to select a specific area in your photo when using these filters, so that the motion or movement is applied to one object, such as a person, your dog, or a pair of shoes.

The Motion Blur filter blurs a layer or selection in a specific direction and intensity. The result can simulate the look of taking a picture of a moving object with a fixed exposure or of panning a camera across a still scene.
