More and more people are using mobile apps to do real work. Mobile apps on our mobile devices give us the freedom of creativity on the go. These three tips will help you to bring your creativity to the next level.
1: Bring your project created in another Adobe Mobile app as an image layer to your current Adobe Mobile App. This will help you to jump between Adobe Mobile Apps when working on the same project.
2: In Adobe Comp CC you can select a few objects to apply same effect at the same time Shift (tap and hold) + Tap. Applying the same effect at the same time to multiple objects will guarantee identical effects will be applied to multiple objects and plus it will speed up your workflow.
3: In Adobe Lightroom mobile use DNG raw when you shoot using the Lightroom camera. Shooting DNG gives you an uncompressed file. DNG file = raw file
When my friend asked me to create a logo I decided to create a logo 100% using Adobe mobile apps.
As usual I am creating logos in Adobe Illustrator CC or Adobe Photoshop CC (depending on the project). My friend’s logo project includes art drawings so I decided to create entire project using Adobe Illustrator Draw (for vector drawing) and Adobe Comp CC for text and layout. Adobe Illustrator Draw is a vector mobile app that allows you to create art using an iPad, iPhone or Android. I love Adobe Illustrator Draw for many reasons including the freedom of working on my projects anywhere (I can use my iPad), another reason is that I can use the paintbrush to create vector art.
Using Adobe Illustrator Draw I created a vector Unicorn.
Also in Adobe Illustrator Draw I created a heart (nice warm touch to the logo’s text).

I took this picture few year ago in NYC using my iPhone‘s camera.
The above image was taken in the evening through a glass window with MANY PEOPLE around me so I did not have time to adjust my camera settings. Thanks to Adobe Photoshop I can improve my image (because I know how warm and beautiful the sunset looked and I want to make my photo looks as close to original condition as possible).
I found that daily exercise is very important for many reasons. Daily exercise helps with exploring/developing new techniques, polishing your skills, pushing your artistic vision into another higher level, and teaches you how to be productive and not to be stressed under the “less time” pressure.
Adobe Photoshop Daily exercise: try to have 20 minutes every day to create something new in PS. its not supposed to be too complicated or perfect. Try to composite 2 or 3 images together (and the best practice is to composite random images, not images that you thought will be good with some composition. Just choose images with absolutely different style, schemes and start working on your Photoshop composition).
Photoshop Painting: try different styles of painting every day. Don’t spend more than 20-30 minutes and you don’t need to finish your painting if you don’t have time. Just practice with brush strokes, colors, try different brushes.
Photography: simply keep your camera next to you all the time. See something > take the shot. Different light, different angles. Try it and you will see a huge improvement just in a few days!
Mobile Apps: what could be easier?!!! You have your mobile devices with you all the time! So Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Photoshop Mix and Adobe Photoshop Fix. Try them and you will be impressed with your improvement just in a few days!
Traditional Painting: use any paper you have. Don’t try to finish your masterpiece every day. Exercise with different brush, pencil strokes, composition.
