Circle Blur

Creates a circular blur within an image, specified by a center point that sets the center
of the blur effect and a radius that sets the size of the affected region. The amount of
blur in the affected area can also be customized.

This filter is useful for blurring a limited area in an image. For more sophisticated control
of the image region to be blurred, use the Compound Blur filter.
