Q&A

Q1:What's the difference between the Blur filter and the Blur tool?
A1: You can apply the Blur tool as if it were a paintbrush to as small an area as you want. The Blur filter blurs the entire image or selection evenly.
Q2:If I change my mind about applying a filter, can I stop the process?
A2: To cancel the filter as it's being applied, press Command+period (Mac) or Esc (Windows). To undo a filter, use the Undo command: Command+Z (Mac) or Control+Z (Windows). If it's too late to undo, use the History palette to revert to a stage before you applied the filter.
Q3:I have a photo that's slightly out of focus. Is there any way to make the subject stand out more?
A3: Select the subject and copy it to a new layer. Use Gaussian Blur on the original, and Sharpen on the subject only.
