If you wish to create miniature scenes using a tilt-shift effect, you have two options – either you buy a specific (and pricey) lens for it, or you make use of Artensoft Tilt Shift Generator to transform your photographs into as many different miniature scale models as you wish without losing the original shot. The program’s high level of flexibility and its extremely straightforward approach make this tool suitable for all types of users.

Both the program’s interface and the entire editing process are as simple as they come. All you have to do is select your favorite photograph – ideally taken from a higher ground – and load it into the program’s main window. The program will draw a focus line right in the middle of the image, and all you need to do is move that line to the right position using your mouse. Everything above and below the area marked by the focus line will be blurred, creating a bokeh effect that will make the untouched area and the objects contained in it look like miniatures on a model set.

The program’s high level of flexibility allows you to tweak four main parameters – the angle, the focus size, the defocus strength, and the defocus graph. These parameters will allow you to widen or narrow the focused area, to select objects placed in the original image in any angle, to select the level of blurring of the bokeh effect, and the shape of the blurred area. The beauty of this tool – as opposed to the use of a true tilt-shift lens – is that you can create as many different miniature scenes from one single original shot as you wish, while keeping the latter intact. Before saving the resulting image as a JPEG, BMP, TIFF, or PNG file, you can always preview it, make all the necessary adjustments, and keep the newly-created photos in the folder of your choice.

That’s all there is to it – the entire editing process can be completed in just a few seconds and with no more than a dozen clicks of your mouse. That’s what makes this tool suitable for all users, regardless of their experience with other image editors. The resulting images will surely please both the amateur and the professional photographer.
