Re: no hake pic?

The hake photo is the 2nd to last photo--is it saying it's not available for viewing or something? It's just a lump of white fish on a white dish. . .

This is how I learned it:
Open your photo in PS
Do Ctrl J to make a copy layer
Click Filter--> Blur---> Lens blur---> choose settings---> click OK

At the bottom of the layers panel, click the square with a circle in it to add a layer mask
Click Edit (in the top menu bar)---> Fill---> use: black

Press B for brush tool---> Make the right size brush you like and hardness you like (I used a pretty soft brush) mode: normal Opacity 40%

Then paint the areas you WANT to be blurry with your brush, adjusting the size of the brush larger or smaller for the areas you need to get around!
