For this image, I did a zoom effect at an amount of 15, quality set to best.]Then apply a layer mask to mask out what you don't want to be blurred.Instructions for v.2Duplicate layer.Apply a radial blur [experiment with settings. For this image, I did a zoom effect at an amount of 15, quality set to best.]Then apply a layer mask to mask out what you don't want to be blurred.Then duplicate the layer that you have applied the radial blur filter too.Set the mode to screen, mess with the layer opacity if needed. I left this one at 100%.Then I applied a radial filter set to SPIN, quality best, and amount to 6. and that's it.For a more dramatic effect you can use the dodge tool, smudge tool, and/or just use the smudge tool and set it to lighten to bring out certain parts or to make rays.I'm not saying this is the coolest image ever I'm just saying it's not worth paying $250 to get this effect when you can do it in photoshop in a minute. Unless of coarse your doing this effect on tons of images.Yes, I do know photoshop cost more then a lensbaby, but its assumed you have a quality image editor. If not you don't you can use the GIMP (free and open source image editor program. GIMP = GNU Image Manipulation Program). If someone wants I can do a tut on how to do it in the GIMP.quasarkitten.net | twitter.com/quasarkitten
