7 Blurred Desktop Wallpapers

Here are 7 photos that I blurred with Photoshop. I wanted to create some wallpaper that wouldn’t be to distracting. These are great looking when used along with Rainmeter. Want to apply this effect to one of your photos? Here is how I did it.

Open your image in Photoshop. Duplicate the layer. Select the duplicate layer and then go to Filter/ Blur/ Gaussian Blur. Apply the amount of blur you want. I sometimes like to eraser parts of the duplicate layer with a soft rounded brush. I set the opacity to something like 15%.
