Editing Images in ProShow
ProShow Producer Adjustments
Figure 5.50 To apply the blur as an adjustment effect,
select the Effects tab, and then select the Adjustment
Figure 5.49 Increasing the Blur amount will add a
soft-focus effect to your image.
ProShow Producer adds a number of more
advanced editing e ects to give you even
more control over how your images are
presented to the viewer. Along with blur-
ring and vignetting, there are very powerful
chroma key and adjustment layer e ects that
can raise your show quality to an entirely new
level of sophistication.
e Blur control does exactly what you might
imagine—it softens the focus on your image,
from subtle to complete (Figure 5.48).
To add blur to your image, drag the selection
handle to the right. Alternatively, you can use
the arrows to adjust the e ect by 1 percent,
or you can enter a value directly into the Blur
eld (Figure 5.49).
One e ective use of the Blur control is to cre-
ate an adjustment e ect with the slide going
from blurred to in-focus. To do this, select the
E ects tab, and then select the Adjustment
E ects tab that appears (Figure 5.50).
Figure 5.48 You can ﬁ nd the Blur control in the
Adjustments controls of the Slide Options dialog’s
Layers Editing tab.
