Video Tutorial: Blur Out Faces and Other Details from a Photo (for Mac)

This child's face has been retouched
so the photo can safely be published online.
Hi everyone! If you read my blog often, you probably noticed that I often blur sections of my photos to remove the faces and names of my students. A follower recently inquired about the process and I am thrilled to share my secret with you. I use the "retouch" editing feature in the iPhoto program for Mac. To demonstrate, I created a short YouTube video just for you lovelies. I know how busy you are so I kept it short and sweet - about 6 minutes long.

Please note: This tutorial is only for Mac users. If you are a PC user, I am sorry that this video will not be helpful to you, but Ms. Jessica from A Turn to Learn has a great tutorial for PC users.

I hope you found this helpful!

  1. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this tutorial!!! It was EXACTLY what I need:)

  2. So glad I found this! Much easier than dragging into Photoshop. Another thing I do to save time is rather than exporting to my desktop, I just take a screen shot of the photo. It compresses it and shoots it over to my desktop so I can use it easily without digging through iphoto.
    Thanks so much!
