Tilt Shift Maker - Have you seen the Allstate Insurance television commercial? The commercial features an overhead view of a neighborhood in miniature. This is done through a process called Tilt-Shift. Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. The technique is particularly effective on buildings, cars, trains and people. Click over to tiltshiftmaker.com. Upload a photo or use the sample photos, read about the controls and change them, preview the photo, click on Get full size and then look below the Get full size button and click on Click here to download your image.
