Three helpful tips for your mobile workflow

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

How to add a sunset effect in Photoshop

How to add a sunset effect in  Adobe Photoshop with only in one step

I took this picture few year ago in NYC using my iPhone‘s camera.

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 1.43.03 PM

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).

5 reasons to use Adobe Stock

Painted with Adobe Photoshop CC and Wacom

I was looking for stock images for a many years and I was not impressed with what I could see on a market  until I was introduced to Adobe Stock.

I am professional photographer, digital artist, and educator. I am working and teaching  Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Muse, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Lightroom, and all Adobe mobile applications and I found that Adobe Stock is the BEST source for my design, photography, painting, education workflow. Why?

Reason 1:
I’ve heard many people say: ” I am a professional photographer, designer and I am not using any stock images”. Hmmmm so if you need any professional  image, background, graphic image to build your clients “travel with us” website you will go around the world to take pictures of the places were your client offers services? And keep in mind that as usual our clients don’t know what image(s) they will use and they are depending on us to show them at least a few examples that they can choose from. So if you multiply all the costs of traveling around the world, and the time just to take pictures, your price for client’s website will rise up significantly and I am not talking about the extra time that you need to build the website. My question is: will your client wait at least 7 extra months and pay 99% more than he/ she should pay just to let you use your own images? The answer is NO and NEVER.
So reason #1: use Adobe Stock images to make your workflow more productive along with building great communication between you and your client.

Reason 2:
When you working on your client project and you’re not sure which image you or your client  will use with your design, simply download a “preview” version of the image(s) your want to use, finish your design, project, show it to your client and if your client approves your design simply click on Adobe Stock image > License image and you will visually see  that your Preview image will be replaced with high resolution, ready to use royalty free image. You don’t need to do any EXTRA steps that will increase your workflow time and your client will receive the final copy of the approved project in no time!
So reason 2: Fast and stress free workflow

Reason 3:
Quality
Adobe Stock is a worldwide library (40 million +) of the best photographers, digital artists, designers.  All images are with HIGH quality ready to use right away.

Reason 4:
The price
You have many optiosn to subscribe to Adobe Stock

My favorite HDR app for mobile photography

My favorite HDR app for mobile photography is TrueHDR by Pictional LLC. I have been using this app more than year, and have no complains about any of its functionality.

TrueHDR app has few capture modes:

  • Auto Capture
  • Semi / Auto Capture
  • Manual Capture
  • Choose Picture

IMG_3814

My favorite mode to use is Manual Capture. Using this mode I can manually select  Bright  and  Dark areas to merge them into HDR image. I can select between Natural ( most realistic look)  and Enhanced ( vivid colors )  modes.

IMG_3816

Using custom slider I can control

  • Warmth
  • Contrast
  • Saturation
  • Brightness

IMG_3818

From the effect presets  I can choose any effect I want to reapply to my image ( from Sepia to Vignette)

Using many convenient sharing options you can share or print your image directly from your app.
