Newsletter editor Mike Pasini focuses on Andromeda's graduated blur plugin...
There is a very fine line any image editor must learn to observe. It's the line beyond which believability dissolves. Image editors make it very easy to composite images, moving a gorilla shot at the local zoo to your living room couch, say. But it isn't believable (generally speaking) because you are mixing outdoor light and indoor with completely different shadow effects to boot.
So when we say you can do selective focus in your image editor, we aren't talking about your everyday Guassian blur. We're talking about using a sophisticated Photoshop-compatible plug-in like Andromeda's VariFocus.
VariFocus provides an easy-to-use graduated blur with a comprehensive set of masks for all your image editing fantasies. Check the review for all the details!
