Hi my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to make bubble blurs in Photoshop. So this is a pretty basic process. The first thing I'm going to do is fill your background with a color you like and then add another layer and the way you do that is right next to your trashcan there's the add layers button, just click that and you will add a new layer and then select your secondary color that you want for your foreground for your bubble blurs and make your opacity like a little less than half. I did 42 and just start and actually if you have a mouse it's a lot easier to do this, just start making your bubbles and you know, if you want to tone it down any more you can and having overlapping ones is actually probably a good idea to make it look more interesting. If you want to make, probably I think it would be pretty cool if you change the size too, have a couple big ones, very faint big ones but, and then maybe some small ones. Make sure though that this is on a different layer because you are going to later you're going to be messing around with some of the layer options. Okay so once I'm done with these bubbles, I'll make some really small ones and they're even more transparent. Okay, so now you can if you want to, you don't have to do this but it's an interesting and kind of cool looking tip, you can mess around with your layer opacity. So when you're in your layers panel just click this and then a whole bunch of different options will appear, just play around with those to get you know the look that you want. If you know if you're interested in making it look really crazy, which I am, so I like that. So then I'm going to go to filter and then I'm going to go to blur and you can do any kind of blur you want, there's some cool ones. I'm going to try a radial blur just to see what that would look like. Oh yeah, that's cool. That's kind of like a more motion blur but if you just want like a regular blur go back to blur and just go to Gaussian blur and Gaussian I think is the best because it's just kind of like, it's nice and like neutral blurry and there we go. And that's your bubble blur. My name is Alex and this is how you make bubble blurs in Photoshop. Thank you.
