Partial Blur


I'm looking for an image manipulation library which would allow me to
blur an oval-shaped part of my picture, instead of the whole thing. I
couldn't find a way to do this using the
tools I see in the API of Python Imaging Library.

If you know how to do this, I'd appreciate it if you left a note.

Create a copy of the picture (or a rectangle just large enough) with
e.g. Image.crop() followed by a load.

Then blur that image using the appropriate filter.

Using the composite-function you should be able to compose the old image
with the new + an oval mask.

Please take a look at this page: http://home.comcast.net/~delerious1/index10b.html There is javascript code that is executed when the page is loaded. The code calls the focus() method and then the blur() method on the first anchor in the box. In IE and Opera the code works. But in Mozilla, you can see the dotted line around the first anchor, so it's as if the blur() method is not working. Anyone know what's going on?

http://home.nycap.rr.com/foryorisonly/site.htm The top one is very different from the bottom one. If you do not recognize the difference scroll the images to the right. Not that the toolbar File | View is enabled for the top blured window and disabled for the bottom. These are the same exact windows both blured using window.blur(); How is it done? Well to tell you the truth I'd prefer it NOT to happen. I am expecting a window.blur()...

Hi, is it possible to change a form text field to this.blur() from a separate function? So, what I want to do is when a button is click it will runblur(), and cause form input name "xyz" to go into a this.blur() state so nobody can type into it. Can this be done? Thanks for anyone's help! Sincerely, Alex

Does anyone have a relatively fast gaussian blur implemented in pure python? Below is my attempt but it takes 2.9 seconds for a 320x240 image. Image comes from byte string: self.array = array.array('B',srcstring). Would some sort of matrix multiplication be faster? I don't have experience in that. I don't want to use PIL or http://filters.sourceforge.net/ to avoid the 300kb dll just for a simple blur.
