Re: which is the best lens blur plugin similar to

I just tested CS6 beta, and as far as I can see, the new blur filter they have added won't allow you to pick a depth map...

To me it seem quite pointless; it's like a faster version of Lens Blur with the most important feature (depth map) removed... I was kind of hoping they would have added options for a nicer aperture/bokeh effect at least. :/

So for Photoshop Lens Blur is still the best we've got. If you want something better, 3rd party plugins will do the trick...

Ps: I wish they would add a proper Lens Flare filter, a motion blur that adds more of a motion trail (blurring in one direction instead of two) along with something similar to the "volumetrics" filter from frischluft for adding lovely light rays... None of this is exactly ground breaking tech so I'm sure they could do it.

Demos are available if you wish to try it. But it's from 2009 so may not be actively developed anymore.

No matter wich DOF plugin you use, Photoshop will be better for doing the masking (at least if you want something more advanced than a gradient...). As far as I know most of the plugins is only for doing the DOF filtering, and the one you think does this the best (ease-of-use/speed/quality) is the one you should choose.
