Adobe released Photoshop Touch for iPhone and Android smartphones today and both versions are available to download immediately. See our earlier post here.
Elaina Wilcox has written a great tutorial to help you start enjoying this app straight away, please take a look at this. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).
‘I always start my Adobe Photoshop Touch projects by duplicating the layer.
After duplicating the layer, I used the Adjustment Brush, choosing the Saturation setting to bring more warmth and depth to the veil as well as her face. I wanted there to be a very strong definition separating the veil from her face.
Still using the Adjustment tools, I switch to the FX brush and select the Brightness and Contrast options. I brush along the figure o the bride to emphasize the lace and bring the eye to her face using shadows and light.
I then found a photo in my camera roll of a chain, I cut it out using the Scribble select tool. I then played around with the opacity until it matched the look of the rest of the piece.
Using the Warp tool, I placed the chain around her neck. The Warp tool let me bend the chain into a more realistic shape for this photo.
I then used the erase tool tool at the ends of the chain, so that it would blend into the fabric.
I then went back to the Adjustment Brush tool, this time using the Shadows and Highlights setting. I adjusted the light-flow of the chain, blending into the fabric.
Still using the Adjustment Brush, I went in and warmed up the whole look of the piece. I wanted the warmth of color to represent her hope and faith.
And here is my final image’.
