Request: Blur (selection) toolbar

Post by budz45 » Sat Jun 28, 2014 4:11 am


I would very much like XnViewMP to have a proper Blur feature to be in the form of a 'Blur toolbar' similar to the already existing Spotlight toolbar or Crop toolbar :)

Ok, the code for Blur is already within XnViewMP :D , the code is used in "Spotlight" function. Also the toolbar UI elements are already there too.

The feature would have many benefits, especially suitable for Blurring out specific areas of a photo image such as faces, genitalia, sensitive texts, email addresses on website-screenshots etc etc

Support for drawing Multiple Blur's in one image should be supported (same as how Spotlight does it) :)

The blur in the "Filter" feature is simply not good enough and it does not support drawn selections made on the image itself. So a Blur toolbar would be great for this.

FastStone Image Viewer, FastStone Capture and other viewers have a suitable Blur selection feature but I am an XnView user.

please see my below image mockups I created to show exactly how it would look look in XnViewMP...

Please, this is a feature to benefit everyone, all users and has never properly existed in XnView classic or XnViewMP

I know this thread is over 4 years old, but did the blur suggestion ever make it into XnView MP? I have XnView for Linux and did not see it there?
