Images node

The Blur node adds a Gaussian blur to images with an adjustable blur radius. It is invaluable for creating depth, directing focus, or adding a stylistic touch to images. The adjustable blur radius allows for a wide range of artistic and practical applications, from softening backgrounds to highlight a subject, to creating a sense of motion.

Importance: Blur effects are fundamental in both photography and graphic design. They enhance the aesthetic quality of an image, direct viewer focus, and convey motion or depth. The ability to adjust the blur radius makes this tool adaptable to various creative needs and technical requirements.

Use Cases:

  • Photographers enhancing portraits by softly blurring backgrounds

  • Web Designers creating background images that don't distract from text or primary content

  • Graphic Artists adding motion effects to static images for dynamic visual content.
