Ron, I'm afraid I have overlooked that feature. I have had Picassa for a few years, and use it fairly often, but had not seen that effect until you mentioned it, and I went back to look. It actually works quite well. Thanks for the heads up. And, happy Memorial day to you.

don't want to be rude, but I personally love the original one, looks more real.
the second one is a little bit over edited.

Thanks, Simon! King says thank you. I.m not a big fan of the effect, this was the first and last time I have used it. More negs than pluses. I think it would work better where a dreamy effect is desired, but it's certainly not for all situations. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

Hawgwild Very nice Attempt
Here are a few Ideas to get the best results On Orton Photography:
camera doesn’t move between exposing the sharp and the out-of-focus image, otherwise the two images won’t be in ‘register’ with each other.
When making the out-of-focus image make sure to set your lens at the widest aperture or risk getting an image that is too much in focus (due to increased depth-of-field at other apertures). Beginners constantly make the error of not using a wide aperture for the out-of-focus photo.
Intimate scenes shot in overcast light and with little or no sky seem to work best for this technique. Heavy shadows go especially dark with this technique so it is best to avoid strongly lit scenes.
