Photoshop CS6, now in public beta, has three new blur filters including:
- Tilt-Shift Blur which simulates the kind of depth-of-field effects you get by adjusting a camera’s aperture and focal length
- Iris blur in which focus is maintained on a specified point and increasing blur is applied radially outward from that point
- Field blur which blurs the entire image
Each of these effects includes the option to add bokeh effects including the ability to change the amount of light and its color.
In this post, I’m going to compare the new Photoshop tilt-shift blur with onOne Software’s FocalPoint 2 which provides a similar blur effect.
