I'm looking to apply a Gaussian blur effect to certain areas of my work, but in a non-destructive way. I can duplicate a layer and apply the effect to the duplicate, however, some of the areas I wish to blur are comprised of multiple layers and groups and duplicating is a not straight forward.
Anyone have a non-destructive means of doing this?
painter doesn't support non-destructive blur adjustment layers.
> I can duplicate a layer and apply the effect to the duplicate,
you can merge visible layers, paste in merged image, blur the entire layer and paint in blurred areas with a layer mask feature, which however is better done outside of painter as a post-processing effect because masked layers drop painters performance a lot
Ok thanks. I appreciate the quick reply.
