Tilt-Shift effects

The software supports three different tilt-shift effect modes. Use the dropdown box on top of the controls panel on the right side of TiltShiftEasy to select your preferred mode.

Horizontal is the most common effect, often used for landscape picures.

For some scenes the Vertical effect is an advantage.

The Radial effect could be a good choice for family photos.

Effect controls

You can change all effect settings over the slider controls on the right side.

Background blur

Set the strenght of the background blur over the "Background blur" slider to get a nice defocusing effect.

Effect position

Set the center of view, the sharp drawn area, over the "Position" slider.

Effect range

Adjust the range of the sharp drawn area with the "Range" slider.

Effect angle

For some pictures it is helpful to add a slight angle to the tilt-shift effect.

Colorize image

Make the photo look more like a miniature model by adjusting the color with "Colorize image".

Foreground bloom

Add a slight bloom effect to the foreground of your image to make it look more toy-like.

Image preview

You can switch between your original image and the effect-preview with "Show original / Show effect". Use "Hide markers / Show markers" to toggle the marker lines.
