When are you going to rebuild the “Radial Blur” filter this filter is not used a lot but sometimes it is the perfect filter for the job. BUT it is a pain in the butt to use, you must keep going back and forth to see if you got what you needed. Please make this filter user friendly.

Anyone else that agrees with me please make a post for this request.

What do you mean by "user friendly"?

And actually, that filter is used very often.

I think you misunderstood which filter I am talking about see pict. NO preview NO indication of what you will get.

No, I know exactly which filter it is.

And, again, what do you mean by "user friendly"? That could mean a lot of different things. So, what exactly are you asking for?

If you have used this filter how can you not know what I mean by”user friendly” with most other filters you either get a preview window or you see adjustments in t he main window. With the Radial Blur filter you have to make adjustment click OK to see if you got the result you wanted if not (most of the time) you go back and try again until you get what you want.

I agree, preview is critical to being friendly to us users.

Also it'd be great to be able to click on the image to indicate the center of the radial blur rather than guessing by clicking in the dialog

I could not agree more. It would be very helpful to have a preview in the Radial Blur box so the user can set the center of the filter accurately.
Right now the filter is not 'user friendly' at all.
Also,is there a way to reset the box to it's center?

Actually the radial filter should be implemented in the blur gallery (like all other blur filters, as well)!
