A while ago I wrote a tutorial about how to create a tilt-shift effect with Photoshop. It was quite simple – as simple as a Photoshop tutorial can get – and the results were very eye-catching. But today I found an online application that can achieve the same effect in a much easier way: TiltShiftMaker.
With TiltShiftMaker you can create awesome tilt-shift effects in under five minutes, without the hassle of having to deal with a big photo editor like Photoshop. All you need to do is load the image from your hard drive – or point to its URL if it’s online – and adjust the focus size. There are also a few advanced settings to fine tune the result, which you’ll find explained at the bottom of the page.
TiltShift includes hints and tips on how to create better tilt-shift effects, as well as links to the app’s Photobucket group album and Flickr group, so that you can share your best shots with other people.
