Creating Depth Maps

This lesson describes the process for creating Depth Maps, which describe the distance of objects in a scene by assigning each one a shade of gray. Once that image is saved into the Channels panel, then it can be utilized within the Lens Blur filter to simulate shallow depth of field.

If Depth Maps are new to you, then consider watching the lesson that was released immediately before this one to get comfortable with the general concepts involved: Blurring with Depth Maps
