‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – ‘How To Use SnapSeed to Keep Colour in Part of a B&W Image’

Share

I’m glad to be back again to share another video tutorial on TheAppWhisperer segment, “How I Did It!™ with Rad A. Drew.” Today I have a very short and sweet video tutorial, How To Use SnapSeed to Keep Colour in Part of a B&W Image.

SnapSeed by Google, which runs on both iPhone and Android devices, has a very robust masking tool hidden in the adjustment stacks. I’ll show you how to use masking to selectively color part of an image. Note: This video assumes some basic knowledge of SnapSeed.

If you’d like more support learning SnapSeed, see my You Tube Channel, Rad Drew Photography, LLC  for additional free SnapSeed tutorials. You also may purchase my recent hour-long SnapSeed Webinar recording here. To be notified of my upcoming webinars on various mobile phone processing apps and techniques, sign up for my newsletter.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more to come! Until next time, keep on shooting!

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Creating Rich, Textured Layers with Stackables App!

Share

It’s been so much fun creating and sharing mobile phone video tutorials in the new TheAppWhisperer section that Joanne Carter created called “How I Did It!™ with Rad A. Drew.” This will mark my third tutorial since the section launched on March 6. I’ve been overwhelmed by the comments and support for these tutorials! Thank you Joanne Carter, and thanks to all of you who make up our wonderful mobile photography community for such a warm welcome!

Today’s tutorial features the app Stackables – Layered Textures, Effects and Masks, (hereafter referred to as “Stackables” in this article) by developer Samer Azzam. Stackables is a companion app to the app  Formulas – Photo Lab Effects and Custom Frames, also by Samer Azzam, which I covered in this section recently and can be accessed here.

In this tutorial I introduce many of the tools and features of Stackables. I demonstrate how to apply textures, filters, gradients, patterns, adjustments, and formulas, and how to adjust the variables of each of these effects. You’ll learn how to save your layers of adjustments as custom formulas that can be applied from both the Stackables app and the Formulas app.

Mobile Art – Creative Tutorial – iColorama Procedural: Spinning Vinyl

Share

We are delighted to publish this creative tutorial using the app, iColorama to create a spinning vinyl record cover by Jerry Jobe, take a look…

 

“iColorama can do amazing things, with a little patience. I posted the image below in several iColorama Facebook groups, and it got a lot of response, so I’ll show you how to create a 45 RPM single, from scratch, in this great app.

This image used the app Over for text and Leonardo for placement onto a background and adding a shadow. Those tasks can be done in iColorama, but they are easier in other, specialised apps. While I don’t add text in the video, I do show you how to mask the disc onto a new background and create a drop shadow”.
