Review: Tilt Shift Focus for iPhone

Submitted by on April 28, 2010 – 6:06 am 2 Comments

Description from the AppStore: With Tilt-Shift-Focus you can easily edit photos to create fake miniatures, enhance or change the depth of field and focus area of your picture, or precisely soften details. Fake miniature and depth of field can improve the visual and artistic quality of your photographs and you can do all that with just a few taps in the Tilt-Shift-Focus editor.

Features:

  • select one or take a new photo
  • edit and adjust with 4 different blur-tools
  • smooth transitions between blurred and focused areas
  • tilt-shift effects on the go
  • quick miniature effect
  • cool zooming effect
  • contrast enhancement for stronger miniature effect

First off the interface is much more clunkier and positioning the linear position was much more fiddlier than TiltShift Generator.  Whilst the app has the option to increase contrast, unlike TiltShift Generator there are no other tweaks available.  The biggest disappointment with this app, was its out put size, that whilst not low res, was not full res either, saving on my iPhone 3G at a disappointing 1024 x 768 pixels.

Over all this app was disappointing and has some way to go to challenge TiltShift Generator, so for now if you want that tilt and shift effect, then I would recommend TiltShift Generator.

Tilt Shift Focus is $0.99 USD in the App Store.

    I just tried it out and came to the same result – TiltShift Generator is the best app for this kind of effects.
