Add blur to your images and photos

Most people think that blurry images are bad. But when used the right way, a blur effect can turn a casual image or photo into something that looks completely professional. Blurring an image is also an important process for preserving the safety or identity of individuals or objects that shouldn't be clearly seen in an image.

Kapwing's modern, online tools let you blur images in just three clicks. The slider allows for precise control, and this online blur tool supports a variety of image formats, including JPG, PNG, WEBP, GIF, and much more. Get started with adding blur to your images without any downloads or complicated tutorials.

How to Blur Images Online

Blur Image
  1. Upload an image

    Upload an image directly from your computer to Kapwing. You can even paste a link to a video from Flickr, Google Photos, or wherever you keep your images.

  2. Add Image Blur

    Select the Adjust button in the Edit tab and use the Blur slider to add blur to the image. Duplicate and crop layers to add blur to only one subsection of the image.

Blurring Photos and Images Online

With Kapwing’s blur image tool, you have complete control over the blurriness (or lack thereof) in your photos. Simply upload the image you want to edit, then use the modern, intuitive adjustment controls to blur your image to the perfect degree.

Kapwing can help you soften and decrease focus in photos, or add blurriness to a certain subsection of an image. If you’re blurring the image to hide someone's face or conceal sensitive information, there’s an extra step involved. Duplicate the image you want to blur. Add blur to the top layer using the Adjust tool. Then crop the blurred layer so you’re only blurring out the relevant part of the frame and the rest is still visible.

When you’re satisfied with your blurred image, you can hit "Export", and the final image will be instantly generated. Kapwing's online image blur editor works for free - we hope you enjoy this easy to use tool.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
