The Focal Blurs Adjustment puts the power of a new lens at your disposal for a fraction of the price. This fun and simple tool adds selective focus to any digital image.

The Perfect Blur.

The Focal Blur Adjustment lets users draw the focus of the eye to specific parts of the composition. Sometimes adding tilt-shift in the field results in inaccurate results and undesired outcomes. Focal Blur allows you to add the perfect effect in postproduction by changing the blur type, amount, transition area, placement on the image, and the rotation of the effect.

Don’t Buy That New Lens…

This flexible and fun tool lets users explore the possibilities of changing focal planes and points without using complex and expensive lenses in the field. Create new looks by easily changing the shape and size of the focal point or add softness and perspective changes to create dreamy atmospheres.

The Topaz Studio Focal Blur Adjustment is perfect for enhancing images with a shallow field of focus to make it more pronounced or to add image softness in post production to eliminate distracting edge detail.

Adjustment Introduction

A powerful tool to add selective focus to any image, no matter what kind of lens you use.

The Topaz Studio Focal Blur Adjustment is perfect for adding selective focus or enhancing an image with existing shallow depth. It’s never been easier with 2 distinct blur types, integrated positioning tools, and 6 related sliders.

Circular Blur controls:

1. Edit Button:
The Edit button gives you an on screen manipulation tool to place, size, and rotate the focal point for your circular blur. Clicking the Edit button again will turn off the on-screen manipulation so you can continue editing.

2. Blur:
Control the power of your effect with the Blur slider. Smooth image details outside the area defined in the Edit button’s settings by keeping the blur amount low. Or you can completely obscure any details in your image and unfocus the area outside your circle using a high blur amount.

3. Transition:
Control the feather of the edge of your blur using the Transition slider. A value of zero on this slider will give the blur a hard edge, while higher values will soften the blur edge to create a smoother and more natural look.

Tilt and Shift controls:

1. Blur:
Control the power of your effect with the Blur slider. Smooth image details outside the area defined in the Edit button’s settings by keeping the blur amount low. Or you can completely obscure any details in your image and unfocus the area outside your circle using a high blur amount.

2. Size:
The size slider controls the width of your linear Tilt and Shift blur. Lower values create a thinner blur and shallower depth effect. While higher values create broader depth and a smoother effect.

3. Position:
Set the vertical position of the Tilt Shift blur with the Position slider. While the default position is center, lower values will move the focal point down in your image, higher values will move the focal point up.

4. Rotation:
Set the rotation from the center of the blur with the rotation slider, this allows you to align the focal place of the effect to match the focal plane of the image. At the default value, the Tilt and Shift will remain horizontal. Lower values will rotate the effect clockwise, and higher values will rotate the effect counterclockwise.
