Thanks, and if you figure out that field blur thing, please add some tips...

I had trouble with it for a little bit... But then I started doing this:
1) Control-J to create a layer we will mess with
2) Filter>Blur Gallery>Field Blur
3) you now see a pin... move the pin to an area you would like to see blurred and click. You have a slider, move the slider back and forth untill you like it
4) Click in a new area to move the pin. (the old area will remain blurred as you made it before). move the slider and you will see the area around the pin blur based on the amount of the slider
5) Hit OK
For some reason If you don't SEE the PINS, do ctrl-H, that will toggle the pins on and off and when they are visible, you can move them.

Thank you! The circle seems to be a protective of some kind?

circle? around the pin? adjusting it determines how much blur. But I'm not sure what you are seeing.

With help from you and Frank, I think I have figured out the basics of it. Looks like a useful tool for compositing, among other things. Thanks!
