Setting opacity of JGoLayer


Is it possible to set the opacity of JGoLayer instead of setting it invisible.

My application has two layers and when they switch between the layers, they want to see the other layer in background blurred out.

Can anyone suggest any workarounds? Can i create an image of the layer 1 and used other tools/api to blurr it a little bit and set as background in layer2 and vice versa ?

thanks in advance



great thanks. i feel like stupid. should have extended my search beyond the keyword opacity.
