I've been playing around with your method of making a selection, and
I'm afraid I have a newbie question.  How do you blur the QuickMask?

I use the QuickMask all the time for making a selection with a fuzzy
brush. Do you simply activate the QuickMask and then
Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur?  But doesn't this Blur the entire
image - selected and not selected?

Thanks so much.
