    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.
    - Quoted from this awesome page.

    I'll give this a whirl in plain ole CS and see if it works, if not I can at least read it as a txt file.

    I'm not convinced of the performance but this website (link below) is supposed to make tilt shift pics for you. To do the job properly I would think you need to have a depth buffer but here it is anyway.

    Yup, it just uses the old boring method of the gradient across the image. The method that RobA perfected is definitely superior.

    Just playing around with another effect today at lunch taking a break from school work which I should be doing. Anyway, not Tilt-Shifted yet, but I'm not sure if the effect would be lost because of lack of reference background. I may just keep it as is.

    The original photo is somewhere on the Internet I assume, but I couldn't find out which of the dozen copies is the original.

    Speaking of Tilt-Shift, who watches, Wheadon's Dollhouse? I love the opening sequence with all the Tilt-Shifting that they do with it. It really goes with the whole "doll house" idea.

    EDIT: I just realized that I forgot to include the original... Now added.

    I've gotten hooked on DollHouse - great show. Eliza Dushku doesn't hurt either

    Neat image RP!
