Want to blur a face in your video? These video and photo editing tools can help

Over the years, surveillance tools such as face recognition and artificial intelligence have made it easier for states to capture and identify a person in schools, banks, stores or busy intersections. In some cases, our own phones serve as surveillance tools, with social media helping users spread their recordings.

Most recently, a video taken by a bystander shows the death of 46-year-old George Floyd after a white police officer kneeled on the Floyd's neck, causing outrage and protests across the nation. Body-worn cameras are also used by police officers, making it a surveillance tool for both the law enforcement and members of the community.

While some people promote the increased use of cameras in public spaces, others aren't comfortable being caught on camera in some specific settings.

For people filming events in a public setting and who wish to protect the identity of present community members or children, perhaps, some face-blurring tools might be useful. Thanks to Android and iOS apps, as well as video editing tools, it's also easier to keep sensitive details confidential.

Adobe Photoshop, Premiere or After Effects

Whether you're taking a picture or filming a video, Adobe offers several programs to help users blur faces out of their content. While Photoshop includes effects that help photographers blur unwanted faces from their pictures, video editing apps Premiere and After Effects helps seal the identity in faces included in videos. Adobe charges a hefty monthly subscription for access to these tools, with a variety of prices, under the Creative Cloud banner. A Photoshop subscription is as low as $9.99 monthly, while access to Premiere and After Effects is $20.99 monthly. To get all the apps in Adobe's roster, the company charges $52.99 monthly.
