Duplicate your background (image) layer.
Convert that layer for Smart Filters (
Filter > Convert for Smart Filters
) so you can go back and adjust the amount of blur we’re about to add.
Apply a Gaussian Blur via
Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur
. A healthy amount, say 15px, is good to start off with.
On that same layer, create a layer mask by clicking the mask icon at the bottom of the Layers palette.
Go to the Gradient tool on the toolbar and change the type of gradient to Reflected (fourth icon in on from the left).
With the mask selected on the Layers palette, draw a vertical line from the center of your subject to the top of the image. Where you start your line will be where it is most sharp.
Go back and double click on the Gaussian Blur layer to add or remove blur to make it a little more seamless.
This isn't really finished and you don't really explain how you perform the task here.
T: Please finish this task fully explaining how you use the tool using step by step images.
