If you want to create realistic Lens, Camera, or filter effects on the computer, this new plug-in by Topaz will be very useful. Topaz is offering a special on it currently. Now through May 27, 2011, you can purchase the software for $49.99, vs. the regular price of $79.99.

I took this one image and ran it through two different lens effects in the program. Really neat effects. The first, above, is a center focus, similar to a Lensbaby effect, dare I suggest!  The second was a zoom blur. Each of these offers different adjustments to vary the effect to your liking. And like their other plug-ins, the user interface is easy to use, along with the user guide that comes with each plug-in.
