Photoshop Tutorials

Do not keep passing over your not-so-great images owing to their busy backgrounds. By making use of Photoshop’s Crop tool and Blur command, you can clean up a visually cluttered image and get hold of a better composition easily.

To create a stronger focal point for your image, we will:

  • Identify and diagnose cluttered image areas in an image.
  • Crop an image selectively to change its composition.
  • Review the several options of the Blur command so that you know how to best use them.
  • Retouch troubled color areas in an image with the Blur command.

No matter how carefully you try to frame a subject, there are times its background creates a muddled composition. If you pan to the left or right, you do away with one problem and create another. You move closer or step back, and you skew your viewpoint. As such, before you simply walk away from taking the shot, take the best shot that you can and let Photoshop’s Crop tool and Blur command do the rest for you.
