Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video The dynamic, editable Blur Gallery, part of Photoshop: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
Thanks to the Creative Cloud, you can now apply the filter gallery which…includes Field Blur, Iris Blur and Tilt…Shift, as a dynamic, editable Smart Filter.…Which makes the Blur gallery one of the last hold outs.…The only filters left that you can't apply as Smart Filters…are Vanishing Point and, under the Blur sub menu Lens Blur.…Which is really fantastic, because it makes the blur gallery a lot more useful.…Because you can go back and modify your settings anytime you like.…So, in this movie, we're going to use Tilt Shift…in order to create a kind of tiny town effect.…
So, what I've don is I've taken this image here,…this photograph and I've converted it to a smart object.…And the, I added a pass of Reduce Noise.…As well as median in order to bind up…those details and make the cars look more plastic.…And then I applied the new Smart Sharpen filter as well…in order to firm up those details.…And then finally I increased the…saturation using a vibrance adjustment layer.…Now we need to add some blur.…And I'll do that by selecting this traffic layer.…
