Q. How can I blur an area of a photo for privacy using Photoshop?
A. First, do NOT use the teardrop-shaped blur tool.
Instead, do this:
Select the region using the Rectangular Marquee Tool.
Pull down menu Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur
Turn up the blur level until the image is indistinguishable in the preview.
I have heard of some crafty people unbluring so this isn't ultra secure.
Use a solid black rectangle for the most security.
