How to Blur Backgrounds in Your Photos?



Upload your image by dragging and dropping, or clicking and selecting. We support images in all popular formats including JPG, JPEG, PNG, HEIC, WEBP, TIFF. There is no resolution limited on the uploaded image.



You will be presented an automatic AI selected subject with the background blurred. If you do not like the selection, you can refine the subject selected by using an AI assisted selection. Just select points on the subject (or subjects) and get the perfect background sperated from the subject.


Adjust Blur

Adjust the level of blur to suit your photo. Typically use a lower blur level for backgrounds that are closer to the subject, and a higher blur level for backgrounds that are further away. Play around till you find the right level.



When you are satisfied with the result, click download to save the image to your computer or gallery on your phone. Downloads happen in an appropriate format for the edit that you have made, can be converted to JPG, JPEG, PNG, HEIC, WEBP or other formats as required.

What makes Background Blur special?

Here are some of the ways in which Background Blur is the best tool for your needs:

AI Background Selection

Our advanced AI model will automatically select your subject, and separate your background from the subject, so that you can instantly access the background for applying the blur.


Adjust Subject or Foreground

If you think you can do better than the automatic AI model, you have even more control; use an AI assisted selection for the subject or foreground or use your own skill with a fine brush.

Adjust Blur

Adjust the extent of the blur on the background, increase or decrease the intensity of the blur. The more the blur, the greater the apparent separation between the subject or foreground and the background.


Get Professional Photos

Make ordinary pictures look like they were shot with professional cameras and lenses, get that shallow depth of field effect for your photos to make them stand out from the crowd; all without the massive cost of the equipment or the skill to use it.
