I mean they also have tonal adjustments--not just DOF.

Excellent work, Bart.
Personally, I like to use Richard Rosenman’s Depth of Field Generator PRO plugin.
Less work, easy to use & gives very good results.

Re: Simulating Depth of Field using Photoshop Lens Blur Filter

Thanks. I tried that filter some time ago. Yes, it greatly simplifies some situations by reducing the whole problem to one of making a depth map. You still must extract and separate objects (which is most of the work), but you can just put all that information into the depth map which is easier to think about than doing extractions on different layers.

I was actually hoping Adobe would slightly modify the lens blur filter to allow it to handle depth map edges correctly.
