I always wanted to know how to use Photoshop – but I don’t find it easy to use and some of the tools require you to use a lot of numbers. I play on my IPhone and have a great time manipulating and layering images. I thought I would show you an example of what I do. below is a finished piece I made recently.
You choose 2 images and can add filters and decide which image you want to be the most dominant by moving a slider
Stage 2 – I like mixing images with manipulated versions of themselves – I decided to make a new version of the girl – mixing her with an other image from brick lane
I opened this image in the Reflection app by ‘Big Blue Chip’
This reflects images simply along an axis which you can choose , you save the image and then re open the App and choose the reflected image to get more complicated patterns
I decided that there was too much red in the middle so I used the editing tool and cropped the image and reflected it again
Stage 3 – I put this image and the image from stage 1 back into Image Blender
It’s quite a long winded process – but I like it because it’s intuitive and I just need to save and touch the screen to change things
