TiltShift Generator [Air]


Takayuki Fukatsu (iTunes link), well known for his range of wonderful photography apps for the iPhone, has just released a new application for creating TiltShift (Wikipedia) effects on the desktop.

Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium format cameras. In many cases, it refers to tilting the lens relative to the image plane and using a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field (wikipedia)

Beautifully crafted in Takayaki’s usual black aesthetic, TiltShift is an Adobe Air app for Mac, Windows and Linux. Using a simple set of controls you can quickly apply wonderful TiltShift effects to your photograph. Radius and strength included, a number of different effects like saturation, contrast, brightness and vignetting have also been added.

We have already seen a number of tutorials on how to achieve this effect using Photoshop and on these groups on MacRumors , Flickr and this group but besides the iPhone app (TiltShift – iPhone) there hasn’t yet been an app solely dedicated to generating TiltShift effect.

Takayaki has done a wonderful job. Whether you are a pro or a casual photographer, TiltShift should be a great new addition to your arsenal…and it’s free!
