Focus 2 Pro from Macphun is a professional-quality selective-focus tool that now runs as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, and Apple's Aperture. The program lets you begin with one of five preset focus structures – for Portrait, Nature, Architecture, Macro and "Tilt-Shift" – and then fine-tune the blur, in-focus and fall-off areas to the exact requirements and angles of your picture. Focus 2 Pro offers further adjustments to brightness, colour, sharpness and contrast local to either the in focus or blur areas to ensure that the results are realistic and of an exceptional high quality. The plug-in launches from the Filter menu within Adobe Photoshop and once the finished Focus work is done, you're right back with your image with a Focus 2 Pro item appearing in the History pane. Focus 2 Pro is available for less than £30 including VAT in the UK.
