Topaz Lens Effects

Topaz Labs has a special deal on its Lens Effects Photoshop plug-in.  It usually runs $79.99, but is available for $29.99 with the coupon code “simplefocus” from now until Dec. 24.

For those unfamiliar with the plug-in, Lens Effects allows you to apply depth of field effects and other effects to your images during post processing.  Lens Effects uses a depth map for fine tuning out of focus areas, which helps make the depth of field look more natural and optical-based.

Check it out here on Topaz’s website.
