The preset blurring filters

Neither of the two preset commands in the Filter ^ Blur submenu, Blur and Blur More, can distribute its blurring effect over a bell-shaped Gaussian curve. For that reason, these two commands are less functional than the Gaussian Blur filter. However, just so you know where they stand in the grand Photoshop focusing scheme, Figure 10-21 shows the effect of each preset command and the nearly equivalent effect created with the Gaussian Blur filter.

Figure 10-21: The effects of the two preset blurring filters (top row) compared with their Gaussian Blur equivalents (bottom row), which are labeled according to Radius values.
