Apologies for uploading this picture again, but I was playing around with the freeware paint.net and was quite pleased with the result.
The zoom blur tool in paint.net is much better than the one in Photoshop Elements. It allows you to select the centre point over the image itself, rather than in PSE where you get a diagram of the focus and have to guess where on your photo it relates to. Paint.nets version also works much quicker than PSE.
