‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Create Collages with Image Blender

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have suggestions for future topics, please email me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com

This tutorial features the long time favorite app, Image Blender, by JHND i Sverige AB. There are more sophisticated blending apps available (such as SuperImpose X, by Pankaj Goswami), but I love Image Blender for its elegant simplicity and ease of use. Its simple Arrange and Masking tools, and its assortment of standard blend modes are all that’s needed for many projects.

In this tutorial I share how I combined two images – one of a dancer and the other of a tree – into this blended result using the Arrange and Masking tools.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Lightroom CC for your Smart iPhone

Share

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial, this one on using Lightroom CC for capturing and processing RAW files.

Capturing and processing RAW files has long been the standard among traditional photographers due to the increased quality that can be attained from RAW files. Now, the power of RAW shooting and processing and the resulting quality is available on mobile devices. In the video, I share tips about shooting RAW and processing RAW files in Lightroom CC on the iPhone. (Lightroom CC also runs on Android phones.)

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Using the iPhone Portrait Mode and SnapSeed Portrait Editor

Share

It’s great to be back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial for TheAppWhisperer community! This video explores the 1-2 knockout combination of the iPhone’s Portrait Mode with SnapSeed’s Portrait editor tool.

This video focuses on editing images taken with the dual lens iPhones. In this case the portraits were made with the iPhone XS Max, but any of the dual lens iPhones from the 7 Plus to the X can be used. In fact, you can use SnapSeed’s Portrait editor on any portrait, not just those taken with dual lens cameras. In this video, editing occurs in both the iPhone photo editor, and in SnapSeed’s Portrait Editing tool.

Hello, to TheAppWhisperer Community! Thank you for allowing me to share another How I Did It!™ video, this one on the favorite app, Dramatic Black and White.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Bob Weil

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the seventh of this year’s series of interviews and the nineteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Bob Weil, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).
