The blur tool didn't work well in Photoshop Elements 7, but in Photoshop Element 10 it does appear to work at all. I can blur a whole layer using the filter blur, but the tool bar blur does nothing at all that I can see. Does anyone know about this problem?
I have seen this topic brought up in numerous forums and the Photoshop folks just act like that is something REAL users do not want or need. I want and need a small area blur tool to work over repaired photos at times and the suggestion that you can select a portion of the photo and blue that using gaussian blur to do what I need to do is ridiculous. Why have a blur tool at all if it only works on low resolution photos? I am a 70 year old free lance photographer and I believe the Photoshop Elements folks are dodging the question of why the blur tool doesn't work on all resolutions of pictures.
