Hello, torjjellmidtgaard!

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

What do you mean by background blur?

Would be very nice if this effect could be added. Right now, i need 5 layers in a simple case where 2 could suffice if the effect were available. It's non-destructive, but if you want to move objects you have to take a couple of steps (release maks, move, and re-apply mask). I've added a example.

In the attached file

Select BOTH the top two layers (Rounded Rectangle & Gaussian Blur) and move them around the screen

Here is the closest I could get. 

Select the "Transparent Object" with the Move Toll and move it around. The original above looks like there is some programmation behind it.

How so? You can drag both layers anywhere you want on the canvas, including back to where it was originally, or just delete them.

The original sharp image is at the bottom of the layer stack. A duplicate blurred version is at the top. 

 

The blurred image is masked by a rounded rectangle and then locked. Select the rounded rectangle with the Move tool, and drag it around.

Changed the screen grab.

Probably obvious, but this could be generalized to use any kind of vector mask shape. The vector mask can be rotated, resized, skewed, & reshaped.

h_d, I can only move the background image, the blurred square can't be moved around.

Try selecting it on the Layers panel with the Move Tool active.

When I first open the image it works. As soon as I have selected any layer just the background layer is movable. But the Blur layer is locked. When it's unlocked it works as intended.
