Snagit: Torn Edge + Blur

A colleague uses Snagit's Torn Edge feature a lot.  At times he has to blur a section of the capture -- on the torn edge side.  However, that either also blurs the torn edge, or does not look good.

Example with some of the to-be-blurred content still showing.



Example with the torn edge blurred:


Is there a better way to do this?

Hi Anton,

There is a better way. :)

1. Apply the blur to the capture.
2. Right-click on the image and choose "Flatten All"
3. Apply the edge effect.

That should look a little nicer. Please note that flattening the image makes it so that the blur is no longer adjustable, though.

Hope that helps,
-Josh
