Subject: RE: Tech: Photoshop CS5 tricks
CS5 is a very $$expensive photo editing tool .... a tool for serious photographers. The ones who have DSLR's. For those hobbyists on a limited budget who want to achieve 'bokeh effects' I would suggest they should purchase a low end dslr with kit lens, and buy PS Elements or even better Picassa, or Gimp (freeware). This would in itself be cheaper than purchasing CS5.

In fact (if I recall) the photo editing tool Picassa has a feature that can create a bokeh effect.

Just my opinion
