Having a blurred background can give a bit of action to a simple display. Using them as a background for logos, typography or simple calls to action can give a great impact for users. These blurred backgrounds were created by taking colorful landscapes or macro photography and using Photoshop to blur them appropriately.

You can also use these backgrounds to create various effects using Photoshop. Particularly the layer styles in the layers panel. It’s always worth experimenting to see various effects, you can easily give a texture more mood, or use them to create some simple yet effective lens leak effects.

If further blurring is needed open up the image in Photoshop and simply select Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. You can then tinker the strength of the effect as you see fit.
