Hello and welcome to this tutorial, as part of the filters series. I'm from the BMX and this one, we’re going to be looking at the motion blur filter. And what the motion blur filter does, basically is at motion, it creates a blur that looks like motion on your photos. So a really quick way of demonstrating this, you want to be the best way, you want to be the efficient way, but as a way of demonstrating it, nonetheless, I have a picture of a biker here. Well, someone on a BMX jumping, what we want to do is cut out the bike and the person. So I'm choosing the quick selection tool, I’ll try not to spend too long. But I can be quite picky.
Okay, that will actually do. So now you got there, you want to hold control and press J to take the layer of the background. Then you want to go to filter, blur, motion blur, you could see we already have some motion. You want to move this angle, so it's pointing in the same direction of the motion, then you can just play with the distance to make something that you like. Now obviously, this isn't the best way of using it. Perhaps, it doesn’t even look good like this, but as you can see the idea is to create some motion blur, which is actually what we do.
So as you can see here, we now have a person who looks like he’s actually moving slowly, so isn't that great? But you get the gist of how the filter works. So hope you’ve enjoyed this one.
