I am a newbie in photoshop and learning it all by myself, recently I came across of this image and tried to recreate the effect (I used another image though). What I did: 1. Loaded the image on one layer 2. With the Marquee tool I selected bottom part of the image and layered via copy in a new layer 3. I converted it to a smart object 4. I applied lens blur to to the layer
here is the link: (Method 3: Blur the image) https://medium.com/@erikdkennedy/7-rules-for-creating-gorgeous-ui-part-2-430de537ba96#.39hutajug
Is the method that I used correct? Or can anybody suggest a better one?
