Alien Skin Releases Bokeh Plug-in

Lens stimulation plug-in creates a natural blur.

Big Picture

Alien Skin Software has announced the release of its Bokeh lens-simulation plug-in for Photoshop. Bokeh (the Japanese word meaning "to become blurred or fuzzy") shifts attention to the subject of an image by manipulating focus and depth of field-creating a natural blur and highlights-after the shot has been taken. The software’s effects are modeled after lenses famous for their bokeh highlights, such as the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II and the Nikon 105mm f/2.8 Macro, in order to create a photorealistic look.

In addition to Photoshop, the plug-in is also compatible with Adobe Fireworks CS4 and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.

Price: $199.
