Question Gradient Blur Tool
I am trying to recreate a tilt shift effect on a photo but I cannot use a gradient except once and then it cancels out the first when I try to add a second blur in an opposite corner. How do I add multiple gradient to the same image?

One way (and a tutorial I found that works nice)
(referenced from here: :
Using a quick mask when you do the gradient, it will negate the clear area and then you will have a gradient on both sides (also using the Type: Bi-linear) under the blend tool (Blend)

Duplicate image layer if you want a back up copy of your image to revert to. Or to see before after.
(Layers > Duplicate layer...)

Bottom left of canvas/image, a dotted square icon near status bar, Toggle the quick mask on (it will put a pink/red overlay)
Click the blend tool (Blend) & pick Type "Bi-linear"
Draw a focal point, how big or wide depends on how long you draw the line.
A red bar(see image) should show up where you draw it, if its red on the two outside parts, click the "<-->" icon to flip it back.
4. When done, toggle quick mask off, click bottom left [_] icon off
The two parts outside of your focal point are now selected.

Now go to "Filters > Blurs... > Guassian Blur..."
Adjust accordingly...
