Photoshop in the Mix

My creativity is on fire!  Well my attempts at being creative have doubled at least, my actual creativity is about the same, luke warm.

Since getting my new toys at Christmas, I have been intentionally trying to take time and find ways to be creative, whether it is just taking a picture or learning how to use the graphics apps I have on my phone.  So today, I was thinking about what I would do and I looked at my phone and noticed an app I had downloaded about a year ago, but hadn’t used, Photoshop Mix.

I have used the full computer version of Photoshop but many, many years ago. I was by no means an expert, however I grasped the concept of layers and basic functions in the program. The full version is not an easy-user friendly program, so I was a little wary of how hard this pared down phone app version would be, but I opened it up and started on my first graphic.

I am not even kidding, the above graphic took me about five minutes to complete.  Now, I know it is nothing to write home about, but I did use four layers of individual items that were independently editable, one being a stock photo from Adobe.  Within the program I was able to cut out just the blocks spelling out “Creative”, delete the rest of the picture and then position what remained how I wanted it in my project.

You can use your own photos as well. In the above graphic I was able to cut my husband and me out of one picture from our five year anniversary trip and place us into another photo taken on that trip.

The edges might not be the smoothest, but keep in mind this was done on my phone in mere minutes and done by me, who is decidedly not a graphic artist.  So all things considered, this little program is not only powerful but super easy to use.

I can see more Photoshop Mix in my 2018 year of creativity.
