FocalLab brings professional looking DOF/lens effects to your photos by adding the missing feature of focusing to your iPhone!

"FocalLab does a good job at what it sets out to do, particularly if you’re looking to add effects like soft blurs, zooming effects, or motion blurs to add a sense of action to your photos." - Macworld 4 of 5 star review.

Unlike other blur/soft apps, FocalLab creates GRADUATED blur surrounding an in-focus area. Simply drag and pinch with two fingers to move and change the size/blurness of the sharp area. Now you can emphasize the subject of interest and enhance composition without expensive professional lens.


- Dreamy Blur

Frequently used by wedding and fashion photographers - a soft/mist filter to give your portrait or landscape shot a dreamy and glowing effect.

- Soft Focus

A smooth blur to add Depth of Field effect, separating cluttered background from the subject of interest.

- Zoom Blur

Simulates a technique used with a zoom lens equipped camera by zooming the lens while taking the picture. This "zooming" effect brings a super dynamic look.

- Motion Blur

Add motion blur to the background and create a dynamic scene with ease. To change the direction of the motion, just swipe your finger across the screen.

- Vignette

An almighty vignette filter with choice of 3 shapes, adjustment of center and light fall-off.


- Convenient resize tool with "Smart Crop" option to fit photo to iPhone screen.

- "Selective Focusing" by dragging your fingers around to control the location and size of the area that remains sharp.

- Instant preview of the effect as you adjust the in-focus area and other parameters.

- Full resolution support up to 1200 by 1600.

- Full screen support - toggle on/off the toolbars with one tap.

- Support both portrait and landscape mode.

- Full featured photo viewer with zoom and pan controls to check the effect in detail.

- Option of reverting to original photo if you want to start all over.

- Photos are saved to iPhone's "Camera Roll" or iPod Touch's "Saved Photos".

- Overlay integrated help at your finger tip if ever needed.

5/5 stars

Professional quality

This app really is awesome at what it does, which is adding a variety of blur options to your photos. Another thing it does that isnt really advertised is resize photos very well. I use it to resize photos cropped in photogene back to original size so that my photos are uniform. Like anything, there's always room for improvement, but as it stands its already damn near perfect.
