    I've just been checking out tilt shift photos on photobucket, they are amazing, everything looks like scale models.

    It's really just an effect where the lens gives a very shallow depth of field where everything else looks blurry

    eeeeeee thank you Keith! I have ps7 i think that lozzy sent me so when i find it again i'll install it on the new laptop and give it a try!

    it *looks* fairly simple, the instructions appear to be very user friendly so long as my copy does the samed as theirs!

    That`s fantastic. I hadn`t heard of this effect before I read the opening post.
    Thanks for the detailed explanation of how it`s done in Photoshop Keith. [Something new to play with!]

    it's amazing isn't it? bigthunder posted a tilt shift video from Magic Kingdom the other day and it was quite bizarre, but the more i see it the more i like it!

    Well you need a special lens Josh called a tilt/shift lens. Often used for architecture since it gets rid of the horrible converging verticals problem which people have when they try and point the camera up at a building.

    So the editing in photoshop way is by far the most convenient.

    You can make home made ts lenses but I'd advise sticking with photoshop tbh

    There are some new compact cameras coming out with the effect built in now which is kinda cool

    here are my first attempts. took me a while! the tutorial said to use 'lens blur' which ps7 didn't have so i used gaussian blur instead.....they're not that great but it was fun trying!
