How to blur faces in a video.

If you want to share a video; however, you need to blur a face (or more) you can use YouTube's blurring effects. Below you will see three videos followed by step-by-step instructions.

The first embedded video (36 seconds) shows how to blur all faces in a video.


The second embedded video (1 minute 33 seconds) shows how to customize the blurring effect.



The 3rd embedded video (37 seconds) simply shows what a customized blur looks like when completed (it is the result of the 2nd video you see above).







Here are the steps to follow.

1. Select enhancements (looks like a magic wand) - the second option next to the pencil.


2. On the right-hand side select blurring effects.


3. You then have the option to blur all faces or the option to customize the blurring effect.
4. When you save your video - it is recomended to save as a new video. This way you still have the original you can revert back to (if need be).

As always, let me know if you need anything!
