Actions for Quick Selections
Want to simulate a fog or diffusion filter with the center clear? Combine the Center Circle selection with a Gaussian Blur (or one of the actions in my TLR Diffuse Glows action set). No need to buy a special filter or spread vaseline on a clear filter anymore.
Available selections include:
The actions in TLR Quick Selections make an alpha channel, apply a Gaussian Blur to soften the edges, and load the channel as a selection.

I have not tried it yet but Glenn writes some great stuff.
How can I help you get started with the actions?
I use the actions to create layer masks. The edges are blurred to make the transitions smooth.
Here's a typical workflow:
(1) Load the image in PS and do my global edits.
(2) Create a central oval selection with the "Central Oval Method"
(3) Invoke "Plus 3/4 Stop" from my TLR Tone Enhance action set.
This will automatically add the selection as a layer mask.
