Hi – I am also trying to blur background but am having trouble. If I use the focal soften (above) I don’t want a perfect circle in focus – can this shape be changed? So I went to the blur tool and when attempting to use the paint the blur tool, the option still blurs the entire image. Hoe to I select the portion that will not be blurred? I would like to isolate the person in the image and blur the rest. Is this possible? Thanks for your help.
