I thought of doing that Dustin, but you know my limited knowledge of PS, I'm still a baby user and couldn't work out how I can set say a border to be 50 pixels from each edge no matter the dimensions of the photo, and then to have the portion in the area between this border and the edge to be blurred.
Any problems with a post or thread please use the report button at the bottom left of the post and the team will help sort it out.

Have fun everyone!

See what I'm up to visit my Plymouth Wedding Photography
site or go to my blog.
