Blurred backgrounds have been an emerging trend lately. They have been used for creating backgrounds for websites, applications, infographics, presentations, or just for showing off design elements of one's work on niche websites on web design like dribbble.
This package contains a free .psd of 26 blurred backgrounds, including the original image they were blurred from. I used a mixture of lens and gaussion blurs to achieve a natural and real feel to the images. Feel free to use them for personal or commercial use without any restrictions - although we really appreciate tweets, links, and other social love. It's like adding your change to a social tip jar.
If you'd like to show off how you used them, leave a comment with a link to what you did. I'd like to check it out!
And here's just a few examples to get you excited (download link is at the bottom).
