Blur images

You can apply blur to image variants, except for SVG files. To blur an image, you have to either create a specific variant for this effect first, or edit a previously created variant.

Refer to Resize images to learn how to create variants. You can also refer to the API to learn how to use blur using flexible variants.

To apply blur to an image:

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
  2. Select Images > Variants.
  3. Find the variant you want to apply blur to, and select Edit > Customization Options.
  4. Use the slider to adjust the blurring effect. You can use the preview image to see how strong the blurring effect will be.
  5. Select Save.

You now have a variant with a blurring effect applied to your image.
