    Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knows of a free program that would allow me to blur the face of some of my pictures? As much as I love you all, I really don't want my face attached to my body just yet. If I talk to you personally, I might be ok with sending my normal pictures. But for now, I'm not okay with putting my face out there. I'm sure some of you understand. Thanks. :ugh

    If you use any version of windows, you can use the blur tool in Paint. It can be found in Start> Programs> Accessories> Paint. For more function, I use Serif PhotoPlus SE free addition. For $9.00 you can get the full version. Not many people know about Serif, a British company, so you'll probably get some different recommendations. I really like it. I've been using it since Windows 95. I think they have Apple and Linux versions too.

    GIMP, let me know if you can't figure it out, it's quiet different form Photoshop, so it might be difficult to understand at first.

    I've got the Gimp installer on my desktop. Haven't run it yet. I'm going to take another look before I run the file.
    Its name is "gimp-help-2-2.6.0-en-setup.exe" I'm running Windows 7, 32 bit.

    Does that sound like the name of the installer y'all ran?
