(Paint version below)
If a property is still tenanted or owned, there is a good chance it will still have personal possessions in, such as family photographs, laptops. To avoid including these in your virtual tour, you can either move them out of the room before hand, or easily blur them out of your images.
1. Select the area of the image you wish to blur out.
2. Select the type of blur your software supports, in our case Photoshop – gaussian blur
3. Increase or decrease the level of blur
4. Save your new image
1. Download paint.net
Paint.net is a free download for your desktop. It is an advanced paint tool which features such as Gaussian blur which the standard version of paint doesn't support. You can download here: https://www.getpaint.net/download.html
2. Open your file in Paint.net
3. Ellipse Select
Select the ellipse tool in Tools (or rectangle depending on what you are blurring!) and draw around the area you wish to blur.
4. Select Gaussian blur
Select the Gaussian blur in Effects - Blurs - Gaussian Blur
5. Select the radius
The radius stands for the intensity of the blur. The lower the number, the lesser the blur.
