Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Processing depth of field, part of Green Screen Techniques for Video and Photography.
Rich Harrington: Well, this is looking really good here, and I'm just going to finish this off with…just a little bit of a post crop vignette darkening the edges down, and it just sort…of puts a little bit at the edge, and I think that's looks good.…And we'll come down here to the bottom and check and make sure that we're opening this as a Smart Object.…That's going to embed this original object inside the layer, and when I click Open Object,…a new Photoshop file will be made, and it's going to drop that in, and that works nicely.…But at anytime I could jump back to that. Let's just maximize our window here.…If I need to go back into Camera Raw, a double-click on the icon there will open up the Camera…Raw dialog so that's nice and easy and gives you that flexibility.…
Now when I'm happy with this I'm going to go ahead and duplicate this layer, and I need…to go ahead and actually rasterize that because the Lens Blur filter will not work on a Smart Object.…So I'm going to keep that background copy there as a backup, and we'll just rasterize…
