I'm following a Julieanne tutorial on using Lens Blurs (HERE at 3:36) Basically, adding a 'Field' 'Iris' or 'Tilt-Shift' blur to an image that I've converted into a Smart Object.
I've followed each step but when I go to the blur filters in the 'Filter' drop-down, the top 3 new filters mentioned above are greyed out. If I don't convert the image into a smart object, they're accessible but not with the image converted into a smart object as per the tutorial.
Does anyone have any idea why it won't work for me?
These 3 blurs can be used as a Smart Filter only in version 13.1 upwards, which is currently only available as a Creative Cloud subscription.
Oh.. So they want more money to be able to use the full extended version that I've already bought?!!
Thanks for your help.
Using them as smart filters is a new feature, only available to subscribers (and cloud is a subscription).
