Bokeh sports a super-fast user interface that gives you real-time feedback as you change any control. Bokeh takes advantage of multiple processors and multiple cores in order to run fast on modern computers.
Bokeh 2 works great with the 64-bit version of Photoshop CS5 on both Macintosh and Windows. This gives Bokeh access to more memory and a speed boost.
Bokeh 2 now works in Adobe Lightroom 2 or newer. Our method of tight Lightroom integration provides batch processing and does not require Photoshop to be installed. See our Lightroom page for installation and usage advice.
Bokeh 2 provides many more lens simulation capabilities, including the simulation of motion-like optics found in specialized tilt-shift lenses. Bokeh 2 also simulates traditional fast lenses and also allows you to easily create artistic aperture shapes.
Bokeh allows you to turn an f/22 shot into an f/1 by applying that smooth creamy blur only found in high-end fast lenses.
Create realistic or fanciful shapes in the highlights of your photographs.
New: Multiple Regions
Bokeh allows you combine multiple radial and planar shapes for more control over your focus region.
When Bokeh is applied to a grainy photo, the blurring process will remove the existing grain structure of the image. The grain matching features allow you to replace the missing grain.
In addition to the darkening vignetting effect, Bokeh also provides a bleaching (desaturation) control to remove color in the vignette area. It also has the ability to apply the vignette to an area independent of the blur area.
New: Settings Enhancements
Bokeh comes with a slew of new factory presets to help you get great results fast. These presets are grouped into meaningful categories and you can combine presets from different groups to create your own customized effect.
Bokeh supports a non-destructive workflow, making experimentation easy. Effects in Photoshop are rendered on a new layer, leaving your original image untouched. In Photoshop, Bokeh can be run as a Smart Filter for easy tweaking of the effect after it is created.
