Examples of new stuff
I made this one by running the effect over a 'Clouds' texture... thought it was a cool abstract texture
First up, the night-time 'beauty' shot. The Original is on the left followed by the built-in Unfocus and then Unfocus+.
Unfocus+ produces a result which is more realistic (as seen in the background of almost every night-time film scene)
Second up, a high-contrast shot. Notice how the dark areas 'thin-out' and have a more pronounced edge.
True Blur - tileable option
tile is blurred and then tiled... note the boundaries
The Original is on the left followed by the built-in Gaussian Blur and then True Blur with tiling on
