Installation with CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Objective-C, which automates and simplifies the process of using 3rd-party libraries in your projects. See the Get Started section for more details.


Add the following to your Podfile.

pod 'TYBlurImage'


API documentation is available at CocoaDocs – TYBlurImage

Blur Effects

Just #import the UIImage+BlurEffects header.

Use default effects

call the following method is rapid to blur.

  • ty_imageByApplyingLightEffectToImage:
  • ty_imageByApplyingExtraLightEffectToImage:
  • ty_imageByApplyingDarkEffectToImage:
  • ty_imageByApplyingTintEffectWithColor: toImage:
#import <UIImage+BlurEffects.h>


UIImage *sourceImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"testImage.png"];
// Light Effect
UIImage *image = [UIImage ty_imageByApplyingLightEffectToImage:sourceImage];

Use base method

  • ty_imageByApplyingBlurToImage: withRadius: tintColor: saturationDeltaFactor: maskImage:
CGFloat blurRadius = 20.f;
CGFloat saturationDeltaFactor = 1.2f;
UIColor *tintColor = [UIColor colorWithWhite:0.4f alpha:0.3f];
UIImage *image = [UIImage ty_imageByApplyingBlurToImage:sourceImage withRadius:blurRadius tintColor:tintColor saturationDeltaFactor:saturationDeltaFactor maskImage:nil];

UIImageView Animation

Just #import the UIImageView+BlurAnimation header.

Quick to use

UIImage *sourceImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"testImage.png"];
UIImageView *imageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:sourceImage];
imageView.blurTintColor = [UIColor colorWithWhite:0.4f alpha:0.3f];
imageView.blurRadius = 20;
[imageView ty_blurInAnimationWithDuration:3.0f];

Using blocks

With blocks, you can be notified about whenever the image animation has completed.

[imageView ty_blurInAnimationWithDuration:3.0f completion:^{
