Blurring the Background with Adobe Camera Raw

For this tutorial we’ll take a look at how we can add a soft glow to the background of our raw images, using ACR’s local adjustment and masking tools, without softening the subject area. This technique can also be used in Lightroom.

We seem to have a technical problem embedding the video, but you can view the acr blur tutorial here until we get it fixed. 🙂

Update: If you’re thinking about an upgrade, the Photoshop CS6 tilt-shift blur effect might  interest you!
