The tilt shift effect has become very popular in recent years, perhaps largely because many photo filter type apps include such an effect. Even if you haven't heard the name tilt shift, you will almost certainly have seen examples of such photos. Typically they will show scenes, often shot a little from above, that have a shallow band in focus, with the rest of the image blurred. Our brains interpret these images as being photos of toy scenes, because we have become conditioned that photos with such focused and blurred areas are in fact photos of toys. Ian shows you how to create this effect with the popular free photo editors GIMP and Paint.NET.
