How to Create the Blur Effect

Last Updated: Jul 18, 2017 09:21AM PDT
We offer a background image blur effect that helps you create great-looking applications in less time than ever before.

Starting with just one image, you can now toggle the blur effect on globally or on a feature-by-feature basis to complete graphics for your entire app. If you want to spice up some features with a bit of added color, try adding the blur effect to images from our included gallery.
