The final touch is to apply some blur to upper part of wallpaper - it will create illusion of macro photo shoot. First, we need "gradient selection" - that is, selection that goes from opaque on top to transparent on bottom. Here is how:

- switch to Quick Mask (Q). Switch to Gradient tool, make sure black-to-white gradient is selected. Draw gradient from middle to top of image. You should see red mask hiding not-selected area.
