How to Create a Tilt-shift Blur in Photoshop CS6
One of the amazing new features in Adobe Photoshop CS6 is the Tilt-Shift Blur filter. Tilt-shift is a photography technique that creates a blur effect on images to give a miniature effect.It also adds a special depth of field effect to specific areas of the image.
The tilt-shift effect requires special lens to create both the tilt effect, where the lens rotates in relative to the scene, and the shift effect where the camera lens moves parallel to the scene’s plane. Since this effect requires a specific lens and techniques, it was not commonly used by photographers. Now, with the new Tilt-Shift Blur filter in Photoshop CS6, designers and photographers can apply a tilt-shift blur effect on photographs that are taken with ordinary camera lens or even small point-and-shot digital cameras.
