Blur and dim your photos

Tholotis is a simple photo editing tool composed of two sliders: Blur and Dim. Choose an image from your camera roll or use your current wallpaper. Adjust the two sliders so the image transforms to be as blurry and/or dim as your little heart desires. Save it to your gallery, and voilà! Use it for whatever you choose.

It's far too simple a photo editor for most people's taste, but if you just wanted to blur and dim your images, it's sufficient.

Developer's original description available here
Tholotis, blurring the line between perfection and reality. Literally.

Tholotis is minimalistic app that enables you to blur, dim, and save your wallpapers.
Done blurring and dimming? Let BackDrop™ take over, an algorithm that produces pixel perfect wallpaper optimization.
Moreover, make your homescreen glow by tinting your wallpaper in your favorite colors.

Complete feature list:
- Pick current wallpaper or select from gallery
- Blur, dim
- Tint (Paid feature)
- Crop, rotate image
- Produce pixel perfect wallpapers with BackDrop™
- Set wallpaper, save to gallery
- Share

"Tholotis" is a transliteration of the Greek word "θολότης", which means "blur".
Tholotis uses some graphic resources from Roman Nurik's extraordinary, open-source app, Muzei.

    Quick, simple, and easy! 1 suggestion, a "focal point" meaning being able to leave a circular point normal (like a face), and also maybe to increase fade out from the center of pics going up & down? Then would be absolutely perfect!

    I never got past the photo selection page, it kept crashing, even after restarting my phone, closing the app, trying multiple times, etc.

    Since updating to Android L I've noticed Tholotis has been crashing constantly.
