This effect will show you how to create a very interesting image. Firstly, it’s really important to have identical images, your iPhone should not move while taking the two pics.


When you have taken the images, open Image Blender and load the pic one and the pic two.




Erase your head and the rest of pic two, except your body.




Open VFX Studio and load your pic.


Select FX and Weather section


Choose  Cloud D and adjust the cloud




Save the result and open blender, load your pic and the second pic ( a picture of your eye) deleted and only keep your eye, save the result and again for the right eye, you can save the result.










Open SpacePaint and load your pic choose Space basics.


Choose your smoke and adjust it, save the result.


After it you can choose different filter or texture, I choose VSCO and sharpen with Afterlight!

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.

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.
