Vector Tuts Photoshop Tutorial – Adding a Bokeh Effect to your image

Yay! I am finally back again doing tutorial reviews which I love. It’s one of my favourite blogging posts because I like to have a record of what I’m learning and how I’m improving as I go.

This tutorial was a great choice for several reasons, the first being I had never created a Bokeh effect of my own from scratch before. I have used Bokeh effects in my images with someone else’s actions so I was really happy to learn this technique. Secondly, ALL of the assets were available online! If you recall my last attempt at a tutorial, it went very badly and I ended up wasting valuable time doing nothing at all because the tutorial was too old and all of the assets were no longer available online. So I have become better prepared for this situation by choosing tutorials more wisely to blog about.

Comment:¬†I really enjoyed this tutorial but I can’t give it a full.10 out of 10 rating because not all of the steps were included in either the video tutorial or the written tutorial. It took some time to actually get all of the settings correct before being able to complete it. So for that reason, it’s getting an 8 out of 10. However, I was very pleased to see all of the assets available to download so you can get to creating right away.

Rating: 8/10
