I discovered this method for creating live blur in my iOS 7 designs and thought I would share it. Download the free PSD and share this around if you enjoy it. If you distribute or use the idea please give credit.

Thanks to @Tommy Sadler for letting me use his photo.
Thanks for sharing. :)
I download the PSD file and try to replace the image but it's not applying to new image. It's not live blur we can said it's manual.
@Kenil Bhavsar you have to use the Smart object. Simply swap images in that and you can test out the blur in real time inside of the original psd.
This PSD is more for reference of how to do the effect and have it work for your designs. The point is that you can move around blurred objects, see their effects in real time and quickly change things. It's much faster than taking a screenshot, importing, and blurring each time you make changes.
@Kyle Adams Yes you are right. But is there any option to do it without smart object.? I mean just use white background and give the effect. Than it should work auto.?
@Kyle Adams You figured out dynamic blur! YOUR A GOD
@Kenil Bhavsar It does not work without the smart objects, since it uses the filters to make the blur-effect.
He have made a shape with a smart-filter (blur) and set the smart object (image) as the clipping mask of the shape.
So if you change the smart object you change the clipping mask of the shape which has the smart filters that applies the blur.
Well done Kyle Adams :)
works great, thx
Awesome, can't way to try it out! Thanks for posting

Thank you everyone. I'm glad so many have found this useful!
@Michael Topschij thank you very much for the compliment but I would never define myself as any sort of god.
Love it man! I think the photo went great with it too. Great work!
Thank you so much! This technique is coming in very handy in a UI redesign concept I am working on. You rock!
@Murid Rahhal So you get my free PSD, create your own tutorial, give me no credit, and then post it here?
