Cat in red coat, iphone edit using snapseed, superimpose and disressed fx.

IMG_1323 Hi, I wanted to share one of my workflow edits on this site. I called this Cat in a red coat and used five images all taken on my iphone5 and joined together to make this final image. First of all a background image….IMG_1191  This was of a garage door, I used aIMG_1343 Filter in distressed fx and adjusted there to get the blend I required. I then imported it to Superimpose as a background image. Then I imported my second image into superimpose which was for the red coat.

IMG_1186 Using a combination of the mask and Transform tools I deleted everything  but the red coat and handbag. I positioned this on the bottom left hand side and used the normal blending mode to attain the look/effect I wanted. I then saved and merged and bought in my third image as a foreground, the cat.

IMG_0684 I basically followed the same procedure as with the coat, using the mask and transform tool to erase and position as required. As I did with my forth image the clock!

IMG_1346 I used the overlay blending mask on this and rotated it upside down before positioning it in the top left hand corner.

IMG_1347 The tree was imported and blended into the bottom right hand side and the birds were used from a distressed fx texture. Finally I tweaked the whole image in snapseed and added a frame to complete the look, Cat in a red coat!

Iphone Editing and Texture apps.

IMG_1115 IMG_1124 IMG_1132 Hi, I’ve been playing around with the superimpose app this last week and having great fun!. As you can see I started out with two base images which I imported to my camera roll and edited with Snapseed, distressed fx and mextures, (I know the usual suspects!!). I then imported the first image into superimpose as a background with the second image loaded as the foreground. I was then able to use the transform tool to resize the building and the mask tool to erase the surrounding area. I placed the image on the right hand side and used the blur edges tool to help blend in! I then merged into one image before saving to my camera roll. Then I imported back to snapseed for some minor tweaking and a frame before finishing. I find that these blending apps are really powerful and once you experiment with them for a bit eventually become an important part of the editing. 

IMG_1090 IMG_1092 I’ve always liked taking pictures of plant life especially wild flowers and plants. I’m lucky to live near lots of open space and a big country park on my doorstep, so manage to get out quite a lot to capture some fascinating subjects. This image was taken in Winter of some seed heads (wild Angelica I think) I think they look like visitors from another Planet!. Processed in snapseed, distressed fx and mextures.

IMG_1085 IMG_1087 Some Snowdrops from my garden last spring, taken with a Nikon D90 and processed on my iphone5 using snapseed, distressed fx and mextures. Also some Tulips again growing wild in my garden processed as before..

IMG_1096 IMG_1100 Thanks again for looking, and ask any questions in the comment box about my techniques.

Hipstamatic capture and iphone editing.

] IMG_1012 IMG_1068 I’ve been out early this morning in my garden playing around with two apps. One is Hipstamatic, probably my favourite camera replacement app, just for it’s fun factor and it’s amazing analogue results. This image was taken using the Tinto1884 lens and D-type plate film. I love the effects this combo gives and it’s great for portraits as well! I edited in snapseed first of all, maionly using fine tune and detail presets. I then used distressed FX to apply the charm Texture which I adjusted to suit using the sliders there. Then over into Mextures to apply a grunge Texture again adjusted down slightly and finally into snapseed again to tweak and add a border. The next images were processed similarly.

IMG_0972 IMG_0976 This image was taken last winter on my Panasonic GF2. I transferred it over onto my iphone 5 and processed it there. Again I used Snapseed to initially tweak using fine tune, detail and the black and white presets, then transferred it over to Distressed FX and mextures to fine tune the Textures. I nearly always import back to Snapseed to do the final adjustments and add a border. 

I’ve been trying to master the  Superimpose app recently with mixed results. This is a fantastic app that lets you add two images into it’s program and then merge them after working on each image, so it’s great for adding people to landscapes or a ship to a stormy sea or just making an image more pleasing/interesting! The next image shows a tree landscape with a spinning girl added to the right hand side, then converted to mono and tweaked in Snapseed. The original image was processed in Snapseed, distressed fx and mextures from an older overexposed winter shot!!

IMG_0935 IMG_0942 Finally a street scene taken on my iphone through the window of my van on a wet, foggy day. I processed in snapseed converting to mono and adjusting the contrast, then added a texture in distressed fx before finally adding the scratched and slightly damaged look in scratchcam, another great texture app which you can try for free before you buy!
