Neither is correct.

The correct form would be:

Her face was intentionally blurred in the photo, so as not to reveal her identity.

  • Thanks for your response. Can you please also tell me if the same sentence can be corrected by leaving to-infinitive intact? – 5A7335H Nov 7 '14 at 1:24
  • I'm not sure what you mean by that. It is intact, isn't it? – WS2 Nov 7 '14 at 1:33
  • Just had a close look at it and understood. Thanks again! – 5A7335H Nov 7 '14 at 2:20
