I have a photo of a coffee cup on some wood with decent grain, but the exposure has blasted out some of the grain...I've done a passable job of adding in what could be taken for grain, especially if I blur it in a sort of DOF thing...
can I use a gradient to control this blur, as in no blur at one end of the gradient, to more blur by gradient's end?
I'm sure the answer is yes, and could use a little help in achieving it.
in addition to conroy2009- here is a tutorial about the field and tilt blurs,
One question tho...as I watch her tutorial, I do not get this overlay that she gets...I am on CS6 on a Mac Book Pro running Lion 10.7.4, so I assume I have the latest all around of everything.
thanks for any clues about this.
EDIT: never mind...I had Hide Selection turned off and this affects visibility of the pins and overlays.
it was my bad for having Hide Selection turned on; that also hides the tilt shift blur tool/overlay...soon's that became visible it took about 10 seconds to "get" the tool and how it worked...very nice indeed.
