Blur the background of images in just a few seconds with the online program Facepixelizer.
Sometimes you just want to have a part of a picture and you want to lose the ‘background’ or blur a face. There are the necessary programs that can do this but they are generally expensive, laborious, and time-consuming. Now there is a very simple and super fast website program that can do this, Facepixelizer.
Besides the blurring part, I will also show you how to write text on an image. Another great program, free online to use, is called Pixlr/express. You can do awesome photo editing on Pixlr.
Blurring and adding handwritten text
Let’s start editing an image of me.
Here is my original picture.
It’s me, photographed on a lovely sunny day on a dike at the coast of the IJsselmeer in the Netherland.
IJsselmeer: a shallow lake in the northwestern Netherlands that was created in 1932 when a dam was built across the entrance to the old Zuider Zee. Large areas have since been reclaimed as polders.
We start with Pixlr/express
Take a look at how to add our own text to a photo
- Click on browse
- Upload image
- Click on Ta Type
- Choose letter type
- Add text
- Click on save
Now we take the image into Facepixelizer
Via ‘drag and drop’ you place an image on the site of Facepixelizer
- You choose for pixels or blur
Start blurring any part you like, when you don’t like the result, just click on revert and start over again.
– You select the part of the image you want to blur. Be creative with the size. When you blur from min to max, you get a fluently blurred image. The program immediately gives you a view of how it will subsequently look.
You save the edited image directly into your folder.
Switch back and forward
I have the habit to switch back and forward to the different programs, blur, add text, blur etc.
These two programs are really easy and fantastic to work with.
I have a question for you.
