We now get to see tons of options such as Blur, Lens Blur, Smart Blur, Motion Blur, Focal Zoom and the Radial Blur. Let’s get to know what they actually do and the purpose of each options.
(a) Blur : The “Blur” option blurs the whole image evenly.
(b) Lens Blur : “Lens Blur” tries to mimic the blurriness created by the camera lens.
Similar to what happens when the camera shakes at the time we click a photo.
There are 3 different modes which can be used to further enhance your creativity.
These are Octagon, Rhombus and Triangle. These options can be used to define the glitters formed due to the Lens Blur.
(c) Smart Blur : “Smart Blur” option blurs the image in a Soft Manner.
When increased, your images start to look like Oil Painting.

You can create a blurry effect caused due to some kind of shakiness.
You can also control the distance between each blur or simply maintain a gap. And you can also control the Opacity and the Angle from where the Blur Effect generates.
(e) Focal Zoom : “Focal Zoom” can be used to Highlight a Particular Area of an Image.
All you have to do is select an area using the selector and you’re done. You’ll notice the areas nearby (to the selection) to get deeper and blurred.
You can also control the Blur Radius, Size of the Selector, Hardness and obviously with the Opacity.
