How do I use Photoshop Elements 6 for blurring background?

I can't find clear instructions for blurring in Photoshop.

Create 2 duplicates of your background layer: named Blurred and Focus (Focus will be on top) Use the Gaussian Blur Filter on layer Blurred Use the eraser tool to erase the parts of the layer you want blurred.

In photoshop goto the filter in the toolbar and then choose the blur option. In order to blur the image, select the part of the image and then choose different blur options.

The blur option is available in the filter tab and named as blur. There you get different blur stlyes like blur, more blur etc.

Make use of layers. Using the lasso tool, select parts of the image you don't want blurred then put that on its own layer. Make sure that layer is on top. Then select the previous layer and use a blur filter.
