Adding a blur.

Unread post by Dan Rosen » Wed Jul 10, 2019 2:33 pm

Is there a way to blur parts of an image?

What would be really useful is when capturing, if a new window pops up, is to have an option that automatically blurs the capture area behind the the newly popped up window.

And note that these effects are physically applied to the images on publishing, they are not just runtime filters over the unchanged images. That means that when you publish your Xplain there is nothing in the blur that can be recovered in the case that you are using it to obfuscate sensitive information. 8)
