      6. Pinch and zoom out with two fingers to reduce the view to about 50%.

      Tip: Zooming out before you continue to the next step will allow you to see the entire image while creating a gradient mask for the blurred layer.

      10. Move the right transparent spot button to the middle. Add another opacity spot by tapping at the right edge of the gradient slider where the moved spot should be.

      Tip: You can remove unwanted gradient spots by dragging them vertically out of the spot area.
