If anyone is interested, I've created a Tilt Shift Action that you can load into PS CS2 or greater and it will do all the lens blur settings for you. You still have to create an alpha channel yourself, and you must create one or the action will not work. I'm perfecting a better method of controlling the depth of field for the Alpha Channel and will hopefully be able to post another tutorial sometime after Thursday of next week, if not sooner (the semester is almost over!).
Here is the Action. Note: You will have to remove the .txt from the filename before you try to use it.
If you are not sure of how to load or use an Action in PhotoShop follow these directions:

Place the *.atn files into:
Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop X\Presets\Photoshop Actions where X is the version number for your version of Photoshop. To load an action set, go to the Actions palette, then click the small arrow in the top right corner and navigate to the location where you saved the action. Select the file you'd like to load and it will be added to the actions palette.
