I like to make a moving blur on a picture using GIMP (on Ubuntu). What kind of effects should I use? I already use blur but it doesn't give the moving blur.

Note: I'm beginner in graphic design

I think you mean "motion blur"? – Olle Sjögren Oct 29 '12 at 14:34
@OlleSjögren Yes, it is motion blur. I don't know the ordinary name so I use moving blur. – lambda23 Oct 29 '12 at 14:46

To add Motion blur: Select Blur from the Filters menu, then Motion Blur. You can select to add blur from linear, radial, and/or zoom movements.
