Hi guys.

I have created a bunch of white lines with the stroke effect applied to an adjustment layer with masks. How do I blur the lines? When I apply a blur it blurs the whole image and not only the lines.

Hi Stig. Convert the adjustment layer to a normal solid layer by clicking on the circle icon switch which is beside the 3D switch. You'll probably need to set the stroke effect to "on Transparent" in its Paint Style.

That's great, thanks guys!
This is the white lines of a football stadium, so any idea how I can mess up the lines a bit to make them less machine straight?

Hi, I presume you mean making them rougher looking, less clean edged? If so the Roughen Edges effect should work for you.
