Steps

  1. 1
    We should make sure that we've clicked on the exact layer we want to be editing
    .
    We only have one layer, but if we had multiple layers open, they'll be listed at the bottom of the right side panel. Just be sure we're not going to be accidentally edit a background layer if that's not what we intend to do.

    This brings up a pop-up menu where we can start to adjust these settings
    .
    What median does is it takes the pixels around an area, and eliminates any color that isn't fitting in with the adjacent pixels. This is really useful if we're trying to get rid of the image of motion within the picture.

    Alternatively, we can zoom out by pressing the "-" on the left side below the preview

    Then we can just start to edit the "Radius" with the scroller
    .
    Obviously, the further to the right we go, then the more dramatic it will be. It just takes a second to catch up.

    This is actually a little bit too dramatic, so we might want to pull the scroller back over by clicking, or we can just drag it as well
    .
    We can see it sort of blocks out the image, and it almost looks like a painting. This should be used wisely if we don't want anything too dramatic.
