Create a Bokeh Effect in Photoshop!

Skill level

This tutorial will teach you how to create custom bokeh in Photoshop, using a custom brush, blending options, and filters! Bokeh, the out-of-focus area of a photo, help bring focus to the foreground subject, and gives the overall image a nice look.

Note: Photoshop CS6+ contains the Blur Gallery, which has a Bokeh option, but it’s not as user friendly and customizable as this is.
