‘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!

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @sunflowerof21 – Elaine Taylor, she is a respected and very talented mobile photographer. Taylor has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing a very impressive job. We are very proud of her!

On Day 1 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @dinalf – Dina Alfasi and she writes Hello. It’s @sunflowerof21. I’m over the moon to be taking over this account for the next couple of weeks. It’s an honour and a treat to share my favourite images from #theappwhisperer.  I’m kicking off my takeover off with this amazing image from one of my favourite igers: @dinalf. Her work is absolutely stunning – mobile photography at its best! Go to Dina’s feed and you’ll see exactly what I mean”.

On Day 2 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of our one and only Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont @ilemusi and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with my second selection from #theappwhisperer. I’m a huge fan of @ilemusi’s work. Her creative use of apps creates surreal and dynamic images and draws your eyes to the figures within them. Head over to her feed to see more fabulous images like this one”.

On Day 3 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @lorenka – Lorenka Campos and she writes “Hello! It’s @sunflowerof21 here, sharing my third featured image from #theappwhisperer.Lorenka’s work always stops me in my tracks. It’s creative, emotional and expressive. The majority of her images include a human face, but I have a particular soft spot for her florals. I love this pretty delicate thing, dancing within the frame. Beautiful”

On Day 4 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @christinemignon – Christine Mignon and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with feature number four from the #theappwhisperer tag.I adore Christine’s work – her creative use of Hipstamatic (my first and favourite app) is truly inspiring. This image is one of my favourites from this year – I love the leading lines, the bold colours and those tiny silhouetted figures. It’s just fantastic!”
