DIY: LOL, Cool

Memes will be funny for eternity. Don’t you all just love the memes of Mr. Krabs? I die a little every time because they are so hilarious.


This is so me like every single day. This effect can be done in Photoshop. Let me show you how.

First open the photo you want to photoshop.

Next, go to the tab Filter.

Open your list of options under Blur. Open Radial Blur.

A set of options will appear. You can then choose how much of your photo will be blurred by adjusting the amount. The Blur Center will give you a rough preview of how your photo will look.

I’ve adjusted the number to what I believe is appropriate. If you noticed, I have moved the Blur Center to a different position that will cover my face. Click on the center to move it to your desired area.

Then, your photo will appear like this. To get a clearer focal point, use your sharpen tool. Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 1.17.45 PM

Increase your brush size so you won’t take too long to sharpen your area.



Granted, it is a bit rough but you get the picture. Continue to adjust effects until you feel your photo is complete. Add text for the true meme feel.

Thank you for joining me. I am Monae Butler, signing off. Goodnight and Godspeed.
