Bokeh Effect in Pixelmator

This one is really cool. And you noticed that, too, since I received lots of e-mails asking for that nice picture we use in the Pixelmator 1.3 Tempo screenshot.

The wonderful bokeh picture was created by Fabio Sasso—an image editing magician at Abduzeedo.com. The guy really knows how to push Pixelmator to perform its best.

So instead of giving you a direct download link to an image, I am happy to provide you with the bokeh tutorial by Fabio Sasso so you can make one for yourself.


P.S. According to Dictionary.app, bokeh is the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

    I too really enjoy this tutorial and image itself. It’s helped me to create others on a holiday themed basis etc.

    I’d also like to echo Elvin Antonio and the question of any sort of linux development for this software and extend my own interest.
