The Gmagick::motionblurimage() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to simulates motion blur. This function convolves the image with a Gaussian operator of the given radius and standard deviation.

Gmagick Gmagick::motionblurimage( $radius, $sigma, $angle )

Parameters: This function accepts three parameters as mentioned above and described below: 

  • $radius: This parameter is used to set the radius of the Gaussian, in pixels. Its not counting the center pixel. If radius value is zero it means radius will be chosen automagically.
  • $sigma: This parameter is used to find the standard deviation of the Gaussian, in pixels.
  • $angle: This parameter applies the effect along this angle.

Return Value: This function returns Gmagick object on success.
Errors/Exceptions: This function throws GmagickException on error.
Below programs illustrates the Gmagick::motionblurimage() function in PHP:
Program 1: 
Input Image: 



// Create a Gmagick object
$gmagick = new Gmagick(
// Use motionblurimage function
$gmagick->motionblurimage(20, 20, 45);
header('Content-type: image/png');
// Output the image
echo $gmagick;


Program 2: 


// Create a GmagickDraw object
$draw = new GmagickDraw();
// Create GmagickPixel object
$strokeColor = new GmagickPixel('Red');
$fillColor = new GmagickPixel('Green');
// Set the color, opacity of image
// Set the width and height of image
// Function to draw circle 
$draw->circle(250, 250, 100, 150);
$gmagick = new Gmagick();
$gmagick->newImage(500, 500, 'White');
// Use motionblurimage function
$gmagick->motionblurimage(15, 20, 35);
// Display the output image
header("Content-Type: image/png");
echo $gmagick->getImageBlob();
