Tutorial: Make Tilt-Shift Photos in Photoshop CS6

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The latest updates for Photoshop CS6 brought a slew of enhancements and a simplified way of making tilt-shift photography. Tilt-shift photography is just a way of using the lens of a camera to make any picture look like a miniature scaled down model of that object or place. It’s very hard to do this with a camera, so Photoshop lets us recreate that effect. I have a few examples in the slideshow above. This requires Photoshop CS6.

The steps are as follows:

1: Grab any high resolution photo off the internet (wallbase has a great selection: here)

2:  Open the picture in photoshop. (File->open->select picture)

3: Once the photo is selected, go to filter->blur->tilt shift.

4: There will be a filter template placed over the original picture. Once it’s been adjusted to your liking, just hit apply in the top right.

5: If you want to go a step further, you can adjust the saturation, brightness and contrast (on the right panel) to add an extra effect. Congratulations! You’ve successfully made a tilt-shift photo in Photoshop!
