We snuck this feature into a recent update of PS Touch. Russell Brown shows how to combine features like layers & blending modes to create a beautiful effect:
If Russell Brown isn’t the MacGyver of creative tools, I don’t know who is. Check out this crazy little hack of his, featuring a flashlight and Photoshop Touch’s unique Camera Fill feature:
Russell Brown shows a clever technique, using a live camera feed to create textures on Photoshop Touch layers:
Russell Brown shows how to perform perspective distortions, and apply arcs, pinches, stretches, and more:
Russell Brown shows a great, simple way to add some convincing motion blur to a car:
(Note that although the video says it runs for 11 minutes, it’s actually just a 4-minute clip. I’ll ask the production folks to correct this glitch.)
Russell Brown shows how to avoid lots of tedious image extraction tasks, simply by making good use of various blending modes:
While building Photoshop Touch, we’ve constantly sought to balance simplicity & power. For this release, we opted not to include Photoshop-style layer masks (powerful, but not exactly trivial to understand). Instead we incorporated what we think is a simpler, more direct way to achieve a common use of masking. In this short video Russell Brown demonstrates the Add Fade command:
“Grab two images, cut the background off one, and blend the results.” If I had to boil Photoshop Touch down to one capability or scenario, it’s that.
Acquiring images is therefore critical. That’s why we made it simple to drag & drop in images from Facebook, Creative Cloud, and even Google Images. Here Russell Brown composites some public-domain NASA imagery using different blending modes:
We want to help customers do the right thing (i.e. not rip off others’ work), so we paid particular attention to making it easy to search only for images that have been tagged for reuse. By default PS Touch limits search results to those creators have marked as okay to use.
[By the way, I’m still in LA, working the MAX show all day. I’ll get busy answering PS Touch-related questions when I get home.]
