‘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 – 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.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Sculpting Light with Dramatic Black and White”

Share

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.

Dramatic Black and White, by Jixi Pix Software, runs on both iPhone and Android, and transforms color images into Black and White with tools that manage the tone, softness, brightness, and contrast of the image. It’s great for architecture as well as portraits and landscapes, and provides creatives with a great deal of control in determining the final look of the image. (For information on other apps for creating Black and White images, see my blog post, Creating Black and White Images with Your Phone

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Select a Single Video Frame with Video2Photo

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 particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

In this seven minute video I share the iPhone-only app, Video2Photo by Francis Bonnin. This simple and easy to use app lets us extract a single frame from a video and process it as we would any photo.

Why is this great?!?

Because now we can record sports, our pets, our kids, dancers – any fast moving subject – then select the single frame that best captures the action. And the quality of the single image is comparable to photos taken with the native camera or other camera apps, so quality is not compromised.

Take a look at my video below:

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Creating Rich, Textured Layers with Stackables App!

Share

It’s been so much fun creating and sharing mobile phone video tutorials in the new TheAppWhisperer section that Joanne Carter created called “How I Did It!™ with Rad A. Drew.” This will mark my third tutorial since the section launched on March 6. I’ve been overwhelmed by the comments and support for these tutorials! Thank you Joanne Carter, and thanks to all of you who make up our wonderful mobile photography community for such a warm welcome!

Today’s tutorial features the app Stackables – Layered Textures, Effects and Masks, (hereafter referred to as “Stackables” in this article) by developer Samer Azzam. Stackables is a companion app to the app  Formulas – Photo Lab Effects and Custom Frames, also by Samer Azzam, which I covered in this section recently and can be accessed here.

In this tutorial I introduce many of the tools and features of Stackables. I demonstrate how to apply textures, filters, gradients, patterns, adjustments, and formulas, and how to adjust the variables of each of these effects. You’ll learn how to save your layers of adjustments as custom formulas that can be applied from both the Stackables app and the Formulas app.
