Iris Blur in AKVIS Refocus: Blur the Background of a Photo

Iris Blur Mode

Iris Blur mode creates shallow depth-of-field effect, blurring the background while keeping the subject in focus. In contrast to Tilt-Shift mode, this one lets you specify the shape of the sharp area (ellipse, rectangle).

Real photographers can achieve this effect by opening aperture and using different lenses. With AKVIS Refocus you can create a blur background in a click.
