There are many ways to blur people's faces so that they are not recognisable. The easiest way to do this, perhaps, is using Gimp's "Smudge" tool (Gimp is an open source image manipulation programme and can be downloaded here


Step 1

Open your image with Gimp.


Step 2

Now the image is loaded and appears in a seperate window.


Step 3

Choose the "Smudge" tool in the tool panel.


Step 4

Apply the smudging by point to right places and pressing the left mouse click until the face is blured and unrecognizable.
