Topaz Labs just updated their newest Photoshop Plugin Lens Effects to version 1.1 by adding a bunch of new features:
- New filters for Diffusion, Polarization, UV/Haze and Streaks
- Improved Depth-of-Field simulation for better image quality
- A Dual focus lens option
- 30 new and customizable Aperture Shapes
- 13 new and customizable Vignette Masks
- AND you can even upload your own Aperture Shapes and Vignette Masks!
These new filters are in addition to the original Len Effects Filters of Bokeh, Creative Blur (“Lens Baby”effect), Tilt-Shift Lens, Toy Camera, Pinhole Camera, Single Tone Filter, Dual Tone Filter, Graduated Color Filter, Graduated Neutral Density Filter, Fisheye Lens, Motion Blur Effect and Split Prism Effect. Best yet, this is a FREE update for registered owners of the original Lens Effects plugin.
My favorite addition is the new Polarization Filter and UV Filter. Take a look at the above photos. Just like the other Lens Effect Filters, they are stackable within the plugin and can be applied together before clicking the final “OK”. The first photo has both the Polarization Filter to deepen the sky and the UV Filter to remove glare and enhance details in the sand. The effect is completely natural and realistic!
Both the Polarization & UV Filters are automatic. No masks necessary. Just move the slider to adjust the filter’s effect. Simple!
