Back in February i published a popular Blog Tip how to use an opacity or blurred effect with images on your blog.In the post i showed you how to add some code to your template and images which resulted in images being blurred until you placed your cursor over them.So i thought maybe some of you would like to have the effect but the other way around.In this post i will show you how to have all the images on your blog clear but they will blur when your place your cursor over them.This time the blurred image effect is achieved using jQuery so there is only a small piece of code needed.

Remember while the original Opacity effect could be used on selected images this effect will be on all images within your blog.Heres how it's done..
