Over the years you learn how to do many things in Photoshop. Some of them, no matter how many times you do them, are time consuming and tedious. Selective focus, causing certain aspects of a photo to pop out while dimming other elements, such as backgrounds, is one of those tedious processes. Typically, selective focus is achieved during the photography process itself, or with tedious manual processes in Photoshop.
So, I am always elated when somebody comes up with something to make these kinds of tasks easier. Enter FocalPoint from OnOne Software. Take a look at this Before and After and put away your dodge and burn tools.
The interface is relatively easy and straightforward.
