Bokeh is the only software that accurately simulates the distinctive blurring and creamy highlights of real lenses. Terence Tay, Bokeh's designer, performed careful experiments with lenses famous for their bokeh highlights, such as the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II and the Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8. The result is a photo-realistic look, in contrast to the unnatural blur from other software.

This is the absolute best way for high-end designers/photographers to achieve tilt-shift/bokeh effects in post.

For the inexperienced Photoshop user/photographer, it may seem complicated to get started with. It assumes some knowledge of the vocabulary. But it's actually a simple plug-in, and it works incredibly well.

This would be a lot more useful to me if you could use a Z-pass alpha channel for blurs, since I would use this with 3D renders to save time. You can do this with Photoshop's lens blur.

I'll keep this short, if you are after this kind of effect this is the best of breed, nothing comes close!

Easy to use, fantastic results, and wonderful support.

If only everyone was like these guys!

Not only is this an excellent plug-in but you will not find better customer service anywhere. I emailed AlienSkin about a problem I was having with one of their plugins, and they responded almost immediately and then actually called me (yes, on the phone!) within about an hour or so and walked me through the solution.
