[ Thanks to Michael for this link. ]

"If you don't have a zoom lens or you'd like to manipulate a certain image in this style then this tutorial for GIMP should help you achieve a similar effect!

1.
* Duplicate that Layer (call it `BLUR`)
* On layer Blur -> GO, Filters -> Blur -> Motion Blur:

2.
* Select Zoom Blur:
* The Length varies depending on the amount of detail in the photo or what you'd like, but 75 works nicely:
* This process of blurring might take a while for your computer to finish it!"
