bokeh after

Do you ever see spots? Well, here’s an Adobe Photoshop CS6 Bokeh Effect tutorial to give you spotted fever.

bokeh before

Start with a photo
Go to Filter/Blur/Iris Blur
Set the area you want to blur. In this tutorial, the seal’s face remains clear and the background is blurred at 79px.

bokeh settings

Blur Effects:
Light Bokeh: 100%
Bokeh Color: 57%
Light Range: 214-215
Hit OK
Play with the settings for different results. The Bokeh on this seal example may be a little “blown-out” or exaggerated for some tastes, but it illustrates the magic of this tool.
