Transform a scene into a miniature world. This application simulates a tilt-shift lens that tricks your mind into viewing a photo as a miniature scene like a model railroad for example.
Focus on a linear or elliptical region in the image with visual guides and interactively adjust the amount of blur for maximum effect. Increase color saturation, contrast or brightness to increase the toy model look.
Create a nice bokeh effect with the lens blur filter in night scene photos.
Blooming strength and threshold are adjustable.
You can even choose a shaped aperture (hexagon, heart, dollar sign, etc.) if you like.
The size and orientation of the focus can be adjusted
by the multi-touch gestures pinch in, pinch out
and rotation of two fingers around a common center.
Practice with dozens of images that are included or use the camera and photo roll.
The resulting image can be saved in high resolution.
Both portrait and landscape mode are supported.
Please have a look at a video review by Vu Bui, a photographer and cinematographer from Southern California.
This review demonstrates nicely how TiltShift can be used.
A clickable link to the review is on the TiltShift support site.
What's New in Version 2.5
- Adjusting the focus and color settings is now hardware-accelerated and very fast on all devices.
After almost six months since iOS7 there really should be an update but there's not. This was a $2 app, I really expected more.
It took a while to get the hang of but it was definitely worth the effort. The bokeh work really well and turn out great but you must use the right picture one with a nice mix of light and dark. Then you really need to play with the settings until you get it right. Very worth it in the end!!
