Put the focus where you want
You control the focus with FocalPoint 2. Create realistic selective focus, depth-of-field and vignette effects that tell your viewers exactly where to look. With the intuitive FocusBug controller it is just like using a tilt-shift or selective focus lens right inside of Adobe Photoshop.
Unique FocusBug control works just like adjusting a lens.
Create presets for a fast & consistent look.
Easily add realistic vignettes your image.
The Ultimate Lens Simulator
Set your area of focus and then select a lens to simulate or create your own by controlling the amount and kind of blur, even in 3D. With the new FocusBrush tool you can paint sharpness or blur where you want it. Then finish things off with an elegant vignette. It has never been easier or faster to focus your viewer's eye and minimize distractions.
The Focus Bug
The Focus Bug puts the most commonly used options in a single, easy-to-use control. Simply click and drag to position the blur. Then use the Bug's legs to set the size and shape of the blur. Next, adjust the antennae to control the type and amount of blur and the hardness of the blur edge. Using the Focus Bug is a fluid, real-time experience, just like using a lens but inside Photoshop. You can even tilt Focus Bugs in 3D, creating swing and tilt movements just like a tilt-shift lens.
Multiple Focus Bugs
New in FocalPoint 2, you can use multiple Focus Bugs to define the area you want to keep in focus. You can combine them to create complex shapes or to highlight multiple subjects.
The updated blur algorithm used in FocalPoint 2 closely matches actual lens blur to create an authentic out-of-focus look including aperture-shaped highlights. The new blur algorithm is so accurate that realistic depth-of-field changes can be created that look just like they were taken in the camera.
Users can now use the new lens presets that are built into FocalPoint 2. These presets simulate highly desired, expensive lenses that produce a bokeh, or out of focus region with a specific look.
The new Focus Brush lets you paint focus or blur right where you want. You can use it to touch-up the shape of a Focus Bug or you can manually paint anywhere you want. Now in FocalPoint 2 combining the Focus Brush, Focus Bugs and the ability to use selections from Photoshop it's easy to create realistic depth-of-field with even difficult foreground subjects.
Smart Filter Support
FocalPoint 2 can now be used as a Smart Filter in Photoshop CS3 and CS4 allowing you to make non-destructive, re-editable blurs and vignettes on Smart Objects like Raw files.
Highlight Bloom and Brightness & Contrast Controls
Along with the existing film grain controls, FocalPoint 2 adds a new highlight bloom tool which controls how strong highlights are in the bokeh, or blurred area. There are also new brightness and contrast controls for the blurred area of the image, opening a whole new range of creative controls.
Presets have been improved to include embedded previews. This makes it easier to select the correct preset, whether inside of FocalPoint 2 or from the integrated Lightroom and Aperture palettes. FocalPoint 2 now also automatically saves your last six used settings as recently used presets so you can easily reproduce settings.
Adding a vignette is a time-tested way to reduce distractions and focus the viewer's eye. The vignette controls in FocalPoint 2 have been improved to allow for a more natural, edge-only vignette as well as the option to overlay the vignette to preserve detail.
The new onOne Panel in Adobe Photoshop provides fast access to FocalPoint 2. This allows you to quickly launch a module without having to navigate through Photoshop's menus. But it takes that power even farther by giving you access to your favorite effects and presets right from the panel as well. This will save you time by allowing you to apply your most frequently used effects right inside of Photoshop.
