PhotoForge 2 Tutorial






Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.

    i didn’t really see this as a tutorial, but more of a review of the features that the app has.

    Loved the tutorial! Didn’t now that I could do so many things with this app. Thanks and keep them coming, please!!! 🙂

    It’s interesting in the fact that I didn’t know that this functions could be achieved with Photoforge2, but really… A tutorial for me would be explaining how to make a mask, how to use it, how to manipulate it. That’s what I am having dificult with.
    If any of the colaborators would do a step by step of masking and layers I would be most greatful!

    I purchased this app, am however clueless. Unable to figure out very little of it. Got P2, same deal. I’m wondering if I should start with a beginners, easy photo shop app. Perhaps I could then learn what they are trying to tell me to do. I’m an intelligent woman, just technically challenged. I don’t know what tools to use when they instruct you, so on. My so’s a graphic artist but unfortunately lives far away. I’m determined to learn this. It is something I want to do so much.
