TiltShift – Give Photos Depth of Field

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

TiltShift TiltShift is an application that allows you stimulate miniatures. “This application simulates a tilt-shift lens that tricks your mind into viewing a photo as a miniature scene like a model railroad for example.” However, it can be used for much more than just simulating miniatures…it allows you to blur parts of your photo giving you the ability to create some depth of field. You do not need to be an expert in photography, or even know what any of the above means, in order to enjoy this application. Trust me, I’m not extremely knowledgeable when it comes to photography terms and what not but, I like that I am able to bring one part of my photo into focus while leaving the rest blurred.

TiltShift allows you to focus/blur areas of a photo using both oval and linear guides. One thing I love about this app is that there are tools that allow you to be really specific on the area you would like to affect. Once you select either the oval or linear guide, you can then choose to have an outline on the guide so that you can move it to the area you would like to affect on your photo. Both the guides are completely adjustable…you can size, rotate, move your guide using multi-touch (two fingers). If you would like to see exactly what the blur looks like, you can select the filled red oval option on the upper menu bar and you can see exactly where the focal point is and how the blur goes out from there…it is a really nice tool. You can also choose to make the outline on the guide disappear so that you can see what the photo will look like with the affect. You can also adjust the intensity of the blur using the slider at the bottom of the screen.

The app comes with a few stock images however you can also choose photos our of your Camera Roll or you can take a picture. Once you have the picture edited to your liking, you can save it. This will save the image to your camera roll.

Overall, a very nice application that allows you to quickly and easily edit your photos.
