Im still familiarizing with illustrator here and I have an image on the canvas. I need to make an image (drawn using paths/pen tool) that ideally wherever I put it it blurs out the image behind it.
I am trying to achieve the effect that I have the image that is sharp everywhere EXCEPT for that one shape - that shape is the blurred version of the part of the image underneath it, similar to apple's alerts on the iPhone.
Think of that box being the blurred version of the red image:
I know how to blur the ENTIRE image with transform, but how can I blur JUST where a certain shape is?
