How to Create a Depth of Field Effect with the Bokeh Blur Tool

By Suzanne Smith

This can be a great way to improve a photo, create a space to insert some text, or blur out an unattractive feature. Find out how to resize, position, and rotate the mask to select the area of focus. Learn how to use the controls in the Bokeh Blur dialog box such as blur amount, feathering, and aperture shape to blur the image areas you want.
