Additional Blur Effect (preserving edges)

2 posts in this topic

When the blur effect was introduced, there was a discussion it the blur effect should preserve the edges or not. The present blur effect does not preserve edges, and the outer parts of the blurred image become transparent. This is fine in a lot of cases, but not in all cases. In cases when dealing with background images, or with images having a border, I often would like to see a blur effect that preserves the edges, and which leaves the whole image opaque (like Gaussian blur in Photoshop). If I remember it correctly, this feature has been announced for future versions when version 8 was released.

A request to all experts: Please do not post any workarounds here, I am aware of them :)
