Fully Featured Photoshop CC coming to the iPad

Share

At Adobe MAX 2018 in Los Angeles, Adobe previewed Photoshop CC on iPad, however, we were granted a preview in early October, along with other members of the press. Adobe were keen to stress this is not a version, it has all the signature features including layers with no practical limit. We were shown an example with 200 layers.

It is, of course, no real secret that Adobe has been working on a fully featured version of Photoshop for a while, a scaled back version for mobile devices has been available for sometime. However, while Photoshop CC on iPad shares the same underlying code as the desktop version, the interface has been reworked for mobile devices. It has a more streamlined layout and larger buttons and sliders for use with either a finger or stylus, though of course, with many of same tools as the desktop version it looks familiar.

KickStarter – Pictar Pro | DSLR Your Smartphone

Share

We’re always interested to learn about innovative mobile photography projects and this one from Miggo sounds particuarly interesting. They’ve developed a product, called the Pictar Pro that bridges the gap between a phone’s power and camera’s usability with a wide set of physical controls and software features. The cherry on top is the phenomenal user experience: a pleasure-to-touch polished metal grip and an unmatched front-loaded intuitive user interface.

There’s a feature that particularly interests me, that’s the Pictar Pro Viewfinder. If you’re used to looking through camera viewfinders, or just find your smartphone screen too hard to see in bright light, then this could offer a great solution.

The Picture Pro has been designed to work with all smartphones, both Apple and Android, it’s an interesting concept. Their initial goal on Kickstarter was £19,074 but they have by far exceeded that with £142,135 pledged (at the time of writing) and with 36 days still to go.

You can learn more about this project here.

Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – “The Mothering Blackness” Maya Angelou with @findflorentine

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘The Mothering Blackness’ by Maya Angelou. With a firm root in African American history, many of Angelou’s poems, such as this one, can be traced to the work songs slaves sang. The repeating lines give the sense of a refrain, and varying line lengths and numbers of syllables give an improvised feel. Songs passed down orally, such as work songs, are often narratives: this poem tells the story of a girl running back to “the mothering blackness.” The regularly indented lines also give the impression that at least two voices are speaking, which would have been the case in work songs that were almost always sung by a collective.

I have matched art work entitled ‘4 ma friends‘ by @findflorentine – yefri with this poem. You can view and follow her on Instagram here.
