This OnOne FocalPoint review will help you decide if it is right for your needs. This is a stand alone product used to create depth of field as well as bokeh effects for your photographs. It can also be used as an Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture Plugin.
You can go to the OnOne Store and get 10% Off your entire order by using the OnOne FocalPoint Coupon Code "TARS15". I do not make any money from the sale of OnOne Software, thanks to Connecticut's version of the Amazon Tax, which is sweeping across America. Fight this stupid law, as it's only going to cost you more in sales tax, and put others out of business.
You have invested a lot of money in your camera and photography software. But there are a couple of things that are still out of your reach; like those popular and expensive lenses that give you those great blur and field of depth effects. You keep hoping a generous friend or relative takes pity on you, and gets you one for a birthday or holiday, but it has not happened, yet.
For you there is good news! There is a software that allows you to recreate the effects of those incredible lenses in your photos. It is called onOne FocalPoint. It is a Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture plug-in that also functions as a standalone program. This OnOne FocalPoint review will let you know just how good it is when you are looking to do a Bokeh effect in Photoshop.
OnOne FocalPoint works using a tool named FocusBug that you place on your picture to select where you want the focus. It can be planar or round, and enlarged or reduced according to your needs. You can also adjust the Blur feature to achieve the effect you are after. If you want to add another focalpoint to the photograph you are working on, that is possible, too. Other features in onOne FocalPoint are Focus Brush and Vignette. It also comes with some preset features that you can modify or use as a base reference to create some of your own.
Now, before you rush off to buy onOne FocalPoint, let me say that you can get the same end results using Adobe Photoshop. It does take more time in Photoshop than in onOne FocalPoint, so if you are in need of speed because you have to apply field of depth effects to a large number of pictures in a short amount of time, onOne FocalPoint is the tool for you. It has a set of batch functions that can really simplify the whole process.
For those of you that may be a professional retoucher, and can take the time to do things the good old fashioned way, then Adobe Photoshop, is probably the best way to go. It gives you more control over your work. This OnOne FocalPoint review is trying to be impartial, but it is hard when I really enjoy having the full control over dozens of layers within Photoshop. OnOne FocalPoint can feel a bit limited because of its ease of use.
If you are not a professional retoucher or if speed is primary concern, I would recommend this software. In any case, you can always try out the onOne FocalPoint demo and see if it is right for you. If you follow the link, and use the OnOne FocalPoint coupon code "TARS15", you can get an additional 15% your entire purchase.
Hopefully, you will get that coveted lens for your next birthday, and deciding between Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 and onOne FocalPoint will be a non issue. Good luck!
