Turn Your Photos Into Tilt-Shift & Bokeh Masterpieces

If you’re like me and only have a novice understanding of Photoshop, then adding cool effects to your photos can be a huge frustration, which usually leads to disappointment with the final product. Luckily, last night I stumbled across an extremely easy to use website called TiltShiftMaker, which adds a tilt-shift and bokeh effect to any image you upload.

I find it very difficult to explain what the tilt-shift effect is, so I advise you watch the video below. A YouTube user was imaginative enough to re-create a view of Battlefield 3, with a tilt-shift effect.

As you can see, it makes some things in the shot clearer, and blurs the rest which creates a sort of ‘miniature’ effect.

Below I re-created a wallpaper of a racing track, adding the tilt-shift effect along with some bokeh.



The photo above was the first image I edited with TiltShiftMaker, and I’d say the results were pretty good. The website can also be accessed from an app for Google Chrome. Below is a few more images created using the website. (Click images for photographer’s Flickr)
