I may be in the minority here, but something that other renders do to make their final output more photographic looking is depth of field. I am manually trying to fake this in photoshop now, but it's not as realistic as I'd like (see attached). 

Is this something that others would find useful?

Well, this has been discussed at length. It makes little sense to do this in Podium. You would need to keep rendering to tweak the result. Photoshop is far faster, and has a much bigger development team. If you're not happy with their DOF, I'm not sure we'll be able to do any better...

There is a trick on the forum on how to export a DOF alpha map from SU. That's what Podium may do in the future, but it will not be an option. You can have much more control with PP.

Well, yes. In the case of 'actual' DOF, that is. I'm relatively confident, though, most, if not all, users would settle for a simple depth map. Best of both worlds, IMHO.
