IMG_0192uiPhone to iPad apps to Photoshop = Wow!

Here is a before and after illustration of a simple iPhone shot of a moth on a gray concrete floor. I love to experiment with images that at first seem visually un – stimulating – almost hopeless. I started by bringing it into Photo Studio HD on my iPad. There are almost limitless possibilities available from this one app alone, and it’s tempting to spend hours just trying out everything you can think of to see what you can create. Which is fine, if you have all the time in the world, but sooner or later you will have to choose the version you like the most, and work with that to completion. I usually end up with 5 to 10 different saved versions before I finally bring one of them into Photoshop for final tweaking and print preparation. (I will go back later on and delete most of the other versions, or if I like some of them enough, I will move them to a separate drive, so my computer doesn’t get too cluttered up with space hogging files. I’m not saying this image is an award winner by any stretch of the imagination, but you have to admit – it’s a hell of a lot more interesting visually than the original, unretouched version.
That’s about all I have for this post. Short and sweet – leave a comment if you have one or ask me any questions you have – I will be more than glad to answer them. Thanks for looking!

    I am using Photo splashing app named “Photo Splash Fx” and found it to be awesome. Though i did use many other such apps, but due to following features, this became my favorite one.

    Ability to crop a photo, rotate it left or right, and mirror.
    Automatic restore last session – restores the last editing session upon launching the app, if you wish to do so.
    Many different brush options to choose from – including Circular and Rectangular brush shapes, and Soft and hard brush types. Plus the ability to adjust brush thickness and opacity.
    Multiple effects to apply – as many as 140+ effects to choose from!

    Advanced color picker for fine tune color selection.
