Can't remember (again) how to blur edges on round sun

Aug 11, 2012 11:24 AM

I filled a transparent layer with blue sky, opened another layer and used the elliptical marquee tool to draw a round sun, and filled with yellow. I then blurred the edges with a simple keystroke, but can't remember what I did. Please help me to recall this. Thanks in advance.sun.png

    There are different ways to do what you're doing, but given the description of where you are (right after filling a circular selection), I'd Select - None (Control-N) then Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur and set the Radius to taste.

    None come to mind, except perhaps if you created an action to do the steps I decribed and assigned it to a function key. 

     

    Once you do a Gaussian Blur one time, and assuming you don't do any other filters, you can do the same Gaussian Blur filter again with the same parameters by pressing Control-F.  That works with most things in the Filter menu.  Basically Control-F is a "do it again" function.

     

    Maybe someone else with a better crystal ball can come up with a different idea.

    You're welcome, and thanks for letting me know you got it working.

    have the layer where you have the circle selected. then do a shift+control+i, to inverse the selection, then press shift+F6 to feather, now its up to you how you would want the edges to be blurry, but 10% or 20% usually works for me.     3.jpg
