Photo editing without the computer, jargon and technical stuff!

Who has the time or patience to endure the steep learning curve of a complicated desktop program? Especially when most if not all of your images are captured on your smartphone!

This course assumes no prior photography knowledge and is structured in a way to help you 'see' photographically and quickly transition from basic to more advanced photo editing techniques on your smartphone or iPad/tablet device.


Topics covered:

Perspective Tool - straighten and change perspective

Perspective tool corrects lens distortion or produces a creative look. It offers a Rotate feature that is better than the stand-alone Rotate tool. There are also features to squash and stretch the image, change the viewpoint from side to side.

Cropping - re-compose your image

Cropping is one of my favourite subjects. It is a practical tool to zoom into an image and change the aspect of different printing or posting options. Most importantly cropping helps to recompose an image to better communicate our photo intention, story and creativity.

Tune Image to adjust colour, lighting, contrast, etc

Before we get started in the tools within Tune Image, it is important to learn about the histogram first. This is the bar at the bottom left of the screen that you have likely looked over and not paid much attention. Tune Image has all the tools you may already be familiar with in the in-built photo editor on your phone. You will explore what they are and the extras that are found in Snapseed.

Healing - remove distracting elements. Extra tutorial using Retouch App included

If you have not already discovered this, it will truly blow your mind. I am a little excited to show you this. Sometimes there will be distracting elements in your image that you wish you could just remove. Now you can; use Snapseed Healing tool. This lesson includes the separate alternative app Touch Retouch, available on both iOS and Android. 

Details Tool - sharpen the image

Sharpening and adding detail to your photos can really make it look like you have had a phone upgrade. Adding sharpness to the image can really make it pop and jump off the screen. 

Tonal Contrast - add depth and sharpness

This is one of my favourite features of Snapseed. First of all, a recap of what contrast is. It is the difference between the two things. Increasing contrast increases the difference and vice versa. Imagine a grey line drawn on a piece of white paper. Increasing the contrast will make the edges darker to black and the white, a brighter white. The edge will look super sharp as black against white. 

Selective and Brush Tool - area-specific adjustments

One of the big advantages of using an editing app over the in-built editing features of your smartphone is the ability to selectively edit exactly where you want in your photo. You have several options to achieve this. The selective tool will allow you to drop a pin on the image, then increase/decrease the surrounding area that will be affected by your adjustment. The brush tool will affect the areas of the image that you ‘finger paint’.

Lens Blur - add background blur. Extra tutorial using Plus After Focus app

Firstly - why do you add blur to our image? As a viewer, one of the factors that our eye is attracted to – are parts of the image in focus. When you blur the background or edges, it guides the viewer’s attention back to the areas of the image in focus. The Lens Blur tool also has a Vignette feature that provides control over darkening the edges of the image. The combination of having a blur and darkened edges works really well in most images.

Expand tool adds extra sides to your image

The Expand tool allows you to drag out the edge of your photo and have that extra space filled with White, Black or the Smart fill mode. Similar to the Perspective tool, the Smart fill mode looks at the content inside the edge and replicates it in the expanded area.

Snapseed app tips and hacks

Who doesn't love shortcuts and hacks? I have covered most of the individual tips specific to each of the tools in their lessons. There are also some that are universal and apply to almost all the tools. These little hacks will save you time and have you editing even faster!

Versatile Curves tool explained - black, white point and contrast

Warning - This section is a bit technical!! Curves can be an intimidating looking tool. For a long time, I limited my adjustments of brightening, darkening and contrast to just the Tune Image and Tonal Contrast tools. In summary, the curves tool is a powerful tool offering complete control of tones and colours.

White Balance - correct colour cast issues

The topic of white balance can become quite technical. Thankfully, our smartphone generally does an amazing job of capturing accurate colours. At times, our phone cameras are tricked into capturing colour casts that can be easily fixed in Snapseed. 

When and how to create black and white images

Which photos create stunning black and white images? Black and white conversions just do not work on any photo. The best results typically include textures, lines or high contrast (dark shadows and bright highlights). Images that lack contrast will end up a ‘muddy’ grey images. The most impactful black and white images have accentuated blacks and whites, strong composition and intention. 

Stacks (layers) and Masking - the hidden most powerful Snapseed featureStacks

One of the hidden and most powerful features in Snapseed is Stacks, also known as Layers in most other editing software. It enables you to delete and re-adjust any Tool or Filter/Look that has been applied to the image. The stacks tool is quite effective to erase and re-adjust previous edits. The incredible power of this feature is the additional option to precisely apply ANY of your previous edits to a specific part of your image.

Double exposure in Snapseed, SuperImpose and Adobe Mix

You have no doubt seen those surreal combinations of multiple images. Double exposure can actually be two or more images blended or superimposed on top of each other to create a combined image. Snapseed has a Double Exposure tool. To be honest, it really is not fantastic. In this lesson, I have included a video highlighting some of the difficulties of using this tool. Also included are quick demonstration videos of two other great app alternatives: Superimpose, Adobe Photoshop Mix and PicsArt.

Apply and view the steps in a Style/Look

You may be surprised to hear that I am actually an advocate of filters! They are a great way to discover a new editing process, add a finishing touch to your edit or speed up your editing workflow. Snapseed has 11 filters available, named Looks on iOS devices and Styles on Android. Most editing apps apply a filter and leave you clueless as to what they did to the image. The only control you have is to reduce the strength and effect of the filter. In Snapseed, you can use the stacks to look at the history of all the edits applied in the style/look

Save your own 'Style / Look and share editing steps via QR Code

Now that you have experimented with the filters (Looks/Styles) provided by Snapseed, it is time to make your own! As you have discovered filters are super quick and easy. If you find yourself repeating the same steps over and over, you can speed up your workflow by creating a filter. You may even like one of the Snapseed filters and want to either increase or decrease one of the steps in the filter. You can then save it as a separate filter and share your editing workflow with someone else using a created QR code.

Colour grading/colour toning using the colour channels in Curves

You previously learned how White Balance can be used to overcome colour casts to the whole image. You will now be exploring colour manipulation for creative purposes. This is often referred to as split-toning, duo-toning and colour grading. A colour cast can create a particular style and mood in your photos. This process is very common in cinematography to create a mood. 

HDR Scape filter

HDR is High Dynamic Range. The dynamic range refers to the spectrum of light and dark areas. The human eye can see three to five times more range of light than a single image captured by a smartphone. When a smartphone camera has HDR mode enabled, it will capture multiple images of the bright and dark areas and then blend the best of each image into one image. The end result is a more aesthetically appealing image that has a more balanced exposure, reduced contrast without becoming flat and lacking in vibrancy.

What is the Grunge filter?

If like me, you struggle to create abstract photography – this is the filter for us. This filter adds textures, blur, vignette and a range of colour tones. You can also create a monochrome photo using the Grunge filter. This is effectively a black and white image having a single colour cast. You may be familiar with Sepia mages. This burnt, warm effect creates a timeless and charming feeling to the image. This technique is also often used to minimise distractions within an image.

My 6-step photo editing process for any image

This process is designed to keep it simple for you and make just the basic enhancements in a systematic order to make the most efficient and effective transformation of your image. For example, there is no point in making a particular area of your photo look amazing to then go and crop it out in the next step. I use this process on most of my editing as a starting point before then moving on to a specific area (local) adjustments and other tools that will specifically benefit the individual photo.

Nature - waterfall photo editing example


This image was captured on an iPhone X using the camera replacement app Slow Shutter Cam to create the long exposure effect. You will notice the original image is deliberately captured a little dark. This was intentional to avoid the white areas becoming pure white and losing all data in the image.

Note: Original image added as a resource

Travel, Holiday - beach photo editing example

This image was captured on an old iPhone 6s. This provides challenges around image resolution and a limited dynamic range of light and dark. This demonstration will show you have to create something lovely out of a basic snapshot.

Food photo editing example

This overhead shot was captured under natural lighting from the side. No fancy set-up, just a snapshot. At the time of the capture, the colours and texture were the motivation for the image. During the edit, we want to emphasise this and make the textures jump off the screen. 

Group photo editing example

You often take photos of family, friends and loved ones as a group. Our phones do an amazing job of exposing and focusing on the faces really nicely. You may even take photos at events, in your travel or in your business. Sometimes, your phone may struggle under a range of circumstances; including low light, distance people facing away, immovable background distractions or lens distortion.

Smartphone Photography Training


Hi, I'm Mike a twenty-five-year veteran photographer/educator, and now a self-declared mobile photography 'purist'. I capture, edit and share all my photos on my smartphone and iPad. As you can imagine, attaching my iPad to my large expensive tripod turns a few heads!

Creativity was something I always struggled with. Surprisingly, we are all capable of creating WOW photos. Some of us simply need to learn basic photography theories to tap into that elusive talent and then practice. That is what is so awesome about the technology in our phone cameras - we can ignore the technical stuff and just get out there and have fun experimenting.

1. Introduction: high on my James. And welcome to this snaps a final Railing course. Firstly, thank you for inviting me and trusting me to help you in previous my phone photography's. It's a real privilege for May to be involved in your photography journey and help give you the skills and the tools and and mindset to enhance those images they've already captured or a going to capture. Now, you already take lots of photos. You've developed a passion for taking photos on your phone, understand the convenient of it. Now we're gonna take it to the next level we are. We're going toe stop. You saying the photo doesn't do it justice because we're gonna give you the tools to get in there and enhance it. This is the area where you really elevate your photos. You can go out there and buy a new camera Latest smartphone investing light room for a sharp, all that sort of thing. The reality is we're no longer dictated by the camera that we have or the desktop programs that we have. The magic of the photography is not the tools that to you. So a course like this is the investment in those skills because this is where your photography will be really elevated. Unlike other Federated in courses. This is not just about the tools. I'm gonna give you the theories around visual literacy, visual language show you why, Why we're doing things. They're not just how to do it from explain to you while we're doing it in the benefits of during that the benefits of having any intention behind the fighter When your energy understanding what you wanted to look like. It's great when you accidentally ended a crime grand looking image. But I'm gonna help you. Um, you have a bit of a theory and strategy behind your anything that might really pop off the screen and wildfire eyes. Now, there's a lot of online tutorials at the This one here is structured. Assuming no prior knowledge, I'm gonna started the basics and work out way through right through to things like liars and masking and all that sort of thing. Now I know that sounds quite technical. This is going to be Dragon Frey non technical, and I'm gonna walk you through and explain things as simple as I can. Don't be over one bite. You've got a community during with people that are doing the course have done the course you can reach out to may at any time. And at the end of each of the six modules that have filled with videos at the end of H one , you've got a quiz or project or an assignment. Decay at their in practiced right away. What do we cover? Fire less than its visual language, had a grab hold and directive, the attention of the viewer. And so it's even you for your memories for your trouble photos, these this anything tips, help you look at it and go. I remember what this fighter was about because we're gonna make that story simply had to set up the father composition, which is, you know, editing course. But it's so important to understand how all that works when you're living it we're talking about. I got three by see through the intermediate more events for editing options within snap see color lighting, sharpening, removing objects and also some other APS that for things are removing objects does a great job in snap state. But I've got another wrapping there that there's a phenomenal job, and it's just so we're gonna go through some of those alternative APS as well. Ah, we're gonna come. A. I had to create your own filters in snaps, which is pretty exciting because that this speeds up your workflow makes it easier next time you edit an identical photo have captured at the same scene. You don't have to go on. Ended it from start to finish. You could just crowded, filter and run that run the fire through there And it's exactly the signs. Really cool. That's a loving there, isn't it? I've been working in photography for over 20 years and there the last few years, exclusively running smartphone photography workshops in person. And the benefit of that is that I understand what you need out of the course I understand had a structure in a way who started the basics right through the advanced and these complex theories. That's only I really make it as simple as I can because it's not. I don't want it to be complicated and technical, and it doesn't need to be a, to be honest, this course will vela that use a photographer, your friends will. This won't believe the photos the capturing it in editing on your phone. So you join me on this journey. I can't wait to get you involved in crowding their stunning images on your smartphone. 2. Perspective Tool - Straighten & Perspective: perspective is a great tool. Instep. See, it's much better than the original versions that have introduced some extra features. Go to the pencil second row perspective. Okay, so trying to fix that distorted wall on the right side is not so bad. You can see everything, nothing square in this room. So let's go to tilt and left and right will change the angle that it's very captured s So I think that looks pretty good day. Okay, so then we'll go up and down and you can see here. I'm looking at the shop this spring, and that's relatively strike practically that. And so what's happening to black areas? It's going in and automatically feeling those with the content is on the other side of the black, and the top left corner hasn't done a great job. We can attempt to fix that with the healing, to go in there and try and get it to replace surrounding areas where we swap another tool to remove and fix things like that is called retouch that's available on IOS and Android. The list construct just the perspective of moments that will just work out that. Okay, so that's done okay, Trope is there before there's thereafter. So it's looking good and we still haven't The right side of the wall is still not quite right. So if I keep doing that, you're going to try and find one. There's a happy compromise between the two, but we gotta mode and see the free form there you can now. And this little a racing tool you can drag a corner, you can drag across down, and the beauty goes a dragon in and down. You can see there the window, the ceiling above the window trying to make that relatively square. Now, hurry. Don't worry about the bison. I'm just concentrating on that. Hey, I've got that now for the basin at the other corner and then I'm gonna lift it up and I could move it back in, and I think that's looking pretty good. What car? Let me more, thanks to the bottom of the bison is on the lawn. So that's looking strike looking pretty loosening on that. My native on correct Cheryl screen again stretched that add a little bit. All right, now, you could say that we've introduced a lot of extra stuff there significant round, round, red corporate again tickle met. And so it will make a square crump and then get rid of most of it. Full. Bring that mean, just bring any just outside of where it's signed. Play up. Okay, Yeah. So hold the screen. Is that before in these air after that is looking much better, isn't it? Now, there are lots of other issues here with the watt balance and all that. So I think that this is just an example of perspective. Let's have another look in another village. Okay, so he's another image of a classroom with this one. Previously, it's This was an example of visual tension. So having a tilted there and looking up lock that it can make you feel a bit unbalanced content. So this is a great example to just have apply weight. So that pain so respect the Let's just have a look at what we can create. The right tights weaken, wreck tight around that sort of thing. Uh, we're gonna go to tilt. Let's have apply. Filled it that way that why, that's kind of not working because it ends up with too wide, too skinny. I want to still look symmetrical. Hi this. Think this could look nice? That Why that Why? Let's go with that for now. Yeah, the free food. And then we can drag corner stretch that. Have you seen the scene that isn't a fool and thereafter are likely before better. But this is just an example of Hey can really stretch and and change the image that he's the other tour with its perspective. I wonder. Show with you seem it because I set up nice and how the tripod there's a lot of reflection in the water is a lot of sky, and there's a lot of kind of dead space in here, so we're gonna the pencil credit perspective, and we got this option here, Skiles said. With Sky, I'll weaken squash this stretcher Oregon Squash it. So that's 112 years. I want to squash this image Control and flattened olders did areas that did spicy they So we're making It was 69% from the fourth rate, was 69. Now it's compressing it, but it's still got all the content in this. It's still telling the same story, so let's go, OK, you got different options you feel? No, we're gonna go with black president. Tick reason we're going to Black is now. I'm going to crop 69 I was fairly course. There we go. You know, I just use that black as a reference point. Okay, So here's that before these air, often sending me reach, same content, but using the perspective using the skull, it's ah, it's just a quick wire grabbing a totally different look. 3. Cropping - The Most Critical Step: cropping my favorite subject with final entity up into a whole course on this and talk for happens on it because it's technical composition and sitting at the image for those of us that struggle with creativity accuses a real framework to work within this reasons why these things work and cropping is the number one for composition when you when you imagine an image and you set it up and then when you get home and you can recompose it. And that's what cropping is about, is re composing the shop. Yeah, I don't like digital. Zoom mentioned that before, and I love the wide angle because you can capture all of it is as you taking the photos, capturing all of it made. You can go home and look at it and go should have recomposed it and set it up this way. So with cropping, you could do that. Compositional touching quickly is changing the aspect for one. So if you wanna have a 69 to display on TV like I do with most, divide my images or you might want to square for your instagram feed, so look more natural lives where it could be a number of reasons why you want to change it . Freya frame size So you know you can uprooted hope. So that aspect picture within a picture within one photo that could be number of different opportunities and take photos like I mentioned ton story getting the context. So having your main subject. But having the backup content in there is really important as well cropping you can you can position so you can have their rule of threats. We've talked about Rule of thirds is where you have the main subject off center a vertically or horizontally. So think of a tick tack board and you've got two lines. Two lines. That way you got four intersecting lines. Having your mind subject on one of those is fantastic and then having the rest of the context in the background as well. Another reason why that's really good with the rule of thirds is you have that active space . The subject. They looking into the frame so you want to compose and crop your image. So the main subject, if it's a person, is looking in or a statue is looking in towards the rest of it. Having all that spice around it. When you're cropping, make sure that you going to do what we call Border Patrol. So Border Patrol, you go around and just make sure that there's nothing there, that kind of big blob of something that's half cut off or something really brought in the corners and around the ages. It could be a something that's that's really prominent, but really quite closely cropped up into the position up into the corner with a little bit of spice around it. And having that little bit around the age could create visual attention so they might be better off just cropping into the little room or cutting off that surrounding stuff around that object like sense as a more symmetry and balance. So repositioning where you're cropping, the image could provide balance. So you got something a large tray over here in a large tray over there, which is balanced or building or products. If you've got a bottle of wine and then you have something off to the side there, if it's not quite the same height, then you want to make sure you got playing space around, it said. It doesn't look top heavy, just having a bit of experiment with that leading lines one of the main ones. If you got a path guy through an image or you've got somebody looking and they're looking in one direction, that's a leading line. So that's leading the attention of your viewer is, And this is for yourself was, well, so you for your memories that you capturing when you get back to these later on. You're looking at these with fresh eyes. And that's what I was looking at or setting up this shot side that the main subject being your attention goes from their fall picks up on some sort of natural or manmade leading line and taking to the rest of taking a bit of a journey through the image. That's one of the leading lines, too. What's the goal here? I've got Rule of Thirds recovered will odd, several Walters, where you don't have an even number of things that look to be more natural. If you've got um, products or flowers and you've got a bunch of flowers, it doesn't have to flower heads in there have three or five something. That's a rule. What can look really good can but doesn't look supposed in structured creating a different perspective. So moving on after moving where you're cutting an immediate moving off to the side might provide different perspective than if you over there are selecting, the subject said. Moving in Iran cropping off the ages could actually make your subject isolated from the background so you might find a spot. We you got the subject and the sky and to take out this tree, and all of a sudden you're the I go straight to their subject with the isolating its disguise. There might be opportunities like that to what big quantity is cropping out stuff that you don't want. So if you know we've covered, Snap said, healing and rate at which a fantastic for removing stuff but sometimes just simply cropping . It might be easier when you do the perspective and you change perspective, Tool and Snap said. And you change and, you know, have fills in the edges with the content of will stuff. It feels in the age of sometimes doesn't quite work, saying, going there and crop that as a crop out the stuff that you don't want and lastly, with people, uh, cropping really close getting really close with them because with portrait in particular, the closer you get, the more Etem it. If Roo is and avoid coming off arms and legs and having leaves off halfway could look a bit awkward. Defeat officer. I think it's over a dozen different compositional tips. They're all showed me teeth, but this is where cropping this so important because it's the foundation of those confident competition composition. It's the foundation of that composition to really get everything position the right way and all the elements within the fighter talking to each other. I went through that quickly, but let's no practical now and have a look at how we do this within snaps a so called this image here. This is the report on style Me around in Victoria, Australia. I mean, snap, save kind of the pencil and we go to drop okay. And you have all these different perspectives. Depending on what your device you're using, you'll have actually have the numbers and the names down underneath. You might just have the symbols for quite some time. I didn't realize that there's afraid. On the far left, they said, If you make you may need to swat left and get access to that. So afraid basically means you can drag and have whatever aspect you want with the original . I love 69 something to stick with 69 then basically, you just drag the corner and then with your finger in the middle, you can drag the whole lot around. Okay, so what I'm looking at here is just different fire opportunities with the he said here. I like what I'm doing here. I've got the 2/3 of the image is the water one thirties, the sky and the little structure of the end of the period off center. And it's still enough spice around it that is not awkwardly say how they might be awkwardly kind oflife that sometime providing more space. Okay, now that that horizon doesn't have to be exactly on that line, that rule of thirds either. So that's one opportunity. What opportunity that you've got that which is quite nice, that extra blue in the bottom there can, actually, with greeny blue, can I be more of a different element. So it might be nice to keep that in there. You want actually decide after you've taking these image that you know what? I just want that to be the hero of the image. For whatever reason, it could be whatever. Okay, we're gonna PM. You might decide that p Just off to the side. There. Okay. We like this guy. Let's minimize this. I make this Codec more of the hero. Okay? You see there on the left side there. Who? I've got that little bit of stuff there. So I can either climb that out, He'll that out, Or I can just leave it across. Okay, so that's another opportunity. Take on that, Do you mean so you can see here that that's one image. Okay. Back. I do. Okay. Totally different looking image, isn't it? Okay, I'm gonna go for I got for a square. Have a look at these. Hey, bring that over today. Now he down the bottom left corner. I've got a foreground interest, which is really important way landscape photography is having therefore grand interest. It's on a bit of an angle, so it's creating a triangle to go into the towards the pier. So that's one opportunity there. Another is that you just just concentrate on just the textures within. Within the water. There could be just that. Just that. Anyway, you get the drift. You can see what I'm doing. He experiment. If you know, if you don't plan on printing the image, then experiment with the free form it can. You can just do whatever you want. Free. Okay, drink that. Then you might find sometimes that one of the corners might not work. So if that's the case, dragged the middle and they drank the opposing corner off experience that a couple times with Android. Okay, Experiencing a rotten actually. Interesting. Yeah. Okay, so I have a play with it cropping like I mentioned, Really powerful can really change the dynamic and the energy, the feel, the mood, everything. It's just so important. There's no right and wrong. But I love that photo waiting. No right room. Just getting their hever practice and you're sharing your finances and let us see what you before and after that, say how different it looks. Thing 4. Tune Image - Colour, Lighting, Contrast, etc: or are the first picture we're going to look at in snap See is the true image. Say, press on the pencil top left corner. There we have tune image Now in here, there's a couple of ways we can access it over there, the tap on a just and that will bring up the submarine use. Oh, we simply just swap up and down on the actual image as well. Now, when you let go, it will actually select that. So you tap on a just and even tap on one of them and they will select it. Or if you swap up and down as you swap, go to brightness. For example, when we let go of the finger, it is selected brightness. How do we know that it's done that in the top left corner they can sit brightness, and at the moment it's zero. If we swap left or right, you can see there the number next the brightness changes gives us the number, and also you've got a bar up the top there, which you can see their travels along with my finger. Okay. All right. Quick tip. If you not really sure there's no working, you can double tap on the word brightness and we'll reset it to zero. So just a quick little tip there. So we're gonna get back to adjust. Now, it makes sense to go from top to bottom. But that's not what I'm gonna recommend. You work this because and beings, you can see how far down the list there Indians is a combination of brightness, contrast saturation. So if you adjust all those and then you get to ambience, you might like what a meat is doing. But it might be making it too bright again. So then you have to get back to brightness, and you have to go to the negative value. So kind of doesn't make sense to go back and forth like that. So we start with ambience and then we independently then do brought this contrast saturation. Okay, hope that makes sense. We're gonna do that. We're gonna get ambience. Yeah, maybe it's looks fantastic. It's like a turbo. But if I swap this right to the right, you could say that it's just as punchy. Like it really? Some images in particular just really hit your in the fights. Just how vibrant it becomes when you do that. If we soon riding with two fingers, you can see there that it's one of those things does. Asks that to introduce, um, degradation to the image. It's hopefully by the time you see this recording, they might have fixed that snaps them out of fixed it. Hedge the escape of filter. Also the text tools Well, which is a bit we'd when I've noticed. Just personally, I've noticed when I just test text ads and text that's lasted, the greater the images. Well, so just a word of warning with ambience. Don't go too far. Bring it back now whenever I'm doing an edit justice attempt, simple rule. I like to swap to where I like it, and I think it looks nice and they bring it back a bit. The reason I do that is that it's so easy, as you know, toe over it it and overdo it, overcooked the image. So if we go where we like it, I think it looks nice and then bring it back a little bit. We can always add again. It's much easier to add to it that it is to go back in and undo things. Okay, I can't do that with Snap said. Which is really cool there. Shari that ladder in the course. Let's stick with this for now, and it's happy with that. Let's go to Broadness. That broadness Brighton is what that does is that basically brightens every single dot on this image. So if you imagine the old TV's where you could actually physically see the dots that pixels the dots on there, this brought into every single one of them Does that brought in the whole image of to the extreme rock right? We can see there were standard the sky. It's gone. It's too much so and there's no right or wrong. I can't give you numbers. Unfortunately, actor brightness go plus this saturation go. Plus these that doesn't work like that every immediate different. You just have to practice, develop your own style. You might have heard of that before. Developing right star. It's a bit of a nonsense. It's basically what you like, and he's all right, so I brought this reduced Christ it a little bit. Okay, Swapping up contrast Contrast, that's one of those things is difficult to explain. Difficult to understand that basically and it not shell contrast is the difference between two objects that is either increased or decreased. So if you think off black and white so basically what, you have a black piece of paper in a white piece of paper, this high contrast there because they're obvious opposite. Okay, now, if we wanted to make it less contrast, what we'll do is they'll end up making the black lighter and the white darker. Okay, still with me. So that's becoming great. That's becoming great. And then that becomes a low contrast because the difference between the two is less. That makes it all right. Now. If we wanted to increase the contrast, you would make the blacks more black and the white more white would be more vivid. Contrast would be more striking. That makes its I have, so you'll notice that a lot of this a bit of a trend on Instagram to have a low contrast image, and that's basically where it looks a bit washed out. Alright, some contrast. This can look really good with your images, so just experiment and here you see they in the rocks in particular. In this image, they had, they're just gonna be washed out and a little bit of contrast. But if you get too much, look at the leaves in the tree. What happens? They become a silhouette because they just become darker and the sky becomes light up. Okay, so I'm just going a little bit. Benefit of contrast is it had some dips at some shape around things as well. So just had a little bit saturation. Saturation is the vibrance of the colors that makes the colors more vivid. Just just all the colors that does. Uh, and you say they got it extreme. Some areas look nice. Others not so nice. Look at that grass. That terrific on this is a quick y. Also, you take it all the way negative. You could turn into a grayscale image. All right, so I'm gonna add a little bit of extra boost to the color is not too much. OK, next ambience. We've done that. We're at 46 but let's have implying. Let's have a look and say we've got negative and good moment at a little bit. Are going around that 46 50. That was pretty good. Let's live it. That highlights. This is really exciting. The latest smartphones now have highlights for a long time. They didn't have highlights that just had brightness. Highlights, basically, is the bright areas of the image. So brightness brightens everything. Highlights now brightens and darkens just the bright areas, the meat. So in this image, we're looking at the sky. Yeah, some small fires have broadness I saw have hard lots, but you can only increase. You can decrease with this one you can dig. Chris, I don't like what I just did. The clout. So what Date? Grace? That Look at that. You could bring all that detail back into the clouds. Nephi on the top, left corner top right corner. Hold that button down. It's a before and after. So have a look at the difference. That's before, and that's after. Pretty amazing. I love it. It's when one of the favorite tools, he said. But again, it's a little bit too much. So I'm gonna bring it back to about death. Have to with it. Okay, next one is shadows. Yeah, sure. Those one of those things. A lot of people will go. I want toe more like my I see that's I'm gonna increase the shadows and make them look at the brighter. So So what happens here? It's in the tree. You can get all that data back in the tree. OK, but it looks a bit flat, doesn't it? And this is the before I feel that's going right back to the before. Let's disregard that. Okay, So long. A negative. Okay, too far. It's It's not great, either. But typically with my any style, the white light, like finalized. I like to bring the shadows back a little bit. The raisin easy is that it brings that depth back to the image again because I don't like a flat. I wanted to be look kind of people. It's very dimensional. So I'm happy with that. Yeah, I remember where I think it looks nice. And then I brought back a little bit and I won't. I won't ease. Uh, it's the color of the light. Now, if you can imagine when you buy a replacement global home, you can either get a cool white or you can get a warm light. Now, warm light is basically a bit more of an orange color. If you think of sunsets and sunrises. You have warm lots. A bit of that orange Clark looks can look really nice on people's complexion. On the other way is Teoh. Make it look more blue. So let's have a look easy. So if I go left, you can see there. The skies look looks nice, but the rest of it doesn't complexion. Blue doesn't look very, very nice. Go the other way. We can make this look like a bit too far. We can make it look like it's bickmore of sons, that sunset or sunrise. I like a little bit of warmth in this one. I think that's that's pretty good. All right, so when you when you happy with it, you can do the before and after. And then we basically pressed the tick and that accepts that change. It does, and then you can move on to the next to 5. Healing - Remove Objects In Your Image: one of the steps in my six. That final editing process is healing now. This is when I run away in person workshops like this. Find out he This was captured at a small business group, and when you show them the healing just blows people's mind. It's really exciting. It's riel Photoshopped kind of stuff because it's a process of removing distracting elements in a photo. It is that it's a process of claiming an image, and we tried to remove objects that don't add anything to the story or the message, the moment memory, whatever, at least whatever the intention is of the father, if it doesn't add to it and doesn't need to be there, we're not photojournalism. He wouldn't remove it. And this is one way of doing it. Within this old round following at snap safe, I'm gonna show you here. There are other ways of this blue bottle here. We can go in there and selectively day saturate and take That blew out. That's one way of taking out while I from that another is to try and and he'll it out. It's not the work with this one, and I'll show you why go into the paint. So Okay, step on Healy, and then you have Let's just walk with bought blue bottle. That's what it does because it's all in right now and one that I let go and it's gonna be a miss. Okay, it's a miss. The reason why to mess is when I'm swapping on it. It is going either side a wary on picking up all that information and then trying to work out what to fill it with. So it doesn't work there, but other areas, like, have a look over here in the bottom. Right corner. I swap over there, I let go bank, it's gone. It's fantastic. Right up here on the roof is evident going this lot going and you see here this is just cleaning up the image behind. May there, get rid of that. That's gone. Came on any little people and the get rid of that gone good that nothing worse since I started running work, Charles, people take finals to be running the workshops, and they're always from behind me, and I never noticed that I've got a bald spot. If it now the healing fresh getting there and get rid of it. It's fantastic. Uh, it's amusing myself. He, uh yes, we do. We can get in here. And we could just remove little bits of things he going on that border border a border patrol, severe man the ages and looking for things you see there is gonna be blotchy. So because he blotchy just attacker from different angles and see how you get so that's worked. Okay, What else is grabbing our attention for May These other elements here, like the bright spot, brought spots there. Then there were kind of in the blue they So there's other things that need to be done to this image to clean it up. But he's the before. Okay? Huh? We've actually moved quite a bit every week, and there's the after. So just that has really day clotted and remove some of those distracting noted they haven't realized looking at just how busy it waas. But we're removing all that. That's brought attention back into the middle of the image, hasn't it? That's one example. I'll show you a landscape now because this is our landscape has been ended yet, but I'm gonna show you the healing back into the pencil healing, and it's just so I have getting rid of those little bits against he underneath the P that one there that's not adding anything to it. Let's get rid of that. That's gonna struggle there, isn't it? There isn't that struggling is. It's copying the other of the other party. Other shadow. All right, just a little bit, just kind of I don't really add to it. So get rid of that one. Get rid of that one disclaimer at the image. Okay, this rocky outcrop, he that what some people are gonna be saying, What are you doing? That's all part of it, that its context and it's true it was context. But there's too much context. There's too much clutter. You can clean the image and make it look a bit cleaner. There will add to it cases before this. The after just makes it softer and less distractions. And your eye is not Banting around and competing for attention, since just going to the mine elements that we want they that's one example. Let's have a look at another one. Okay, so this one he you see that the bottom right he bought right corner. We've got that step. So let's try and remove that. I just work there Should copy the rest of the footpath. They So that's taken a line out of there. So if you look at it there, that's kind of online in the corner where your I will will eventually go down there to that space. And it will just take your attention off this. So we've just got rid of that. Thank you. Radio that be rid of the numbers on the ground. The boy is zooming, the more accurate will pay much more accurate. Okay, join he get rid of this. You mean closer, closer. More accurate and more fun. Also just going the other direction might help as well. Okay, well, there's that one. No areas were like here. We want to get rid of this line. This this conduct, piping, etc. Are didn't do it to better drop it under the either It's not gonna work. So another option is another app that I that I use so going to the extensions, they then the shape I've been in the bottom and you going open in and this will bring up other wraps that I haven't installed on here, so they're across. And what I'm looking for is the great touch now is snap. See when we do that, When we opened it up, it's actually copying a flattened J pic across there. And then we do air in it and then it comes back as an original again. So all that all that information that we've always edits that we did prior to the healing out lost. Now we're not doing the stacked video. The last video. Explain that a bit more data. But just be conscious that when you transfer to another app and bring it back again, you can go and undo all that stuff you did before him, I guess revoking this image up into great touch touch retouch it. Also known as android and IOS Fantastic at for cleaning up images My go to I love it every year me drive by process and added our guide through this because you can just go in there , get rid of a less distracting elements, as we mentioned, it's not to say does a great drop. This doesn't even better job because that's all this does now This object removal you can say that the Barnet That's similar to what? Snap state That's basically swap ever it. And it will select all this stuff around and in Philippi. And guess what you need to reply So with But this and other things he look long removal heckle is this? So I'm gonna do the medicine. You mean here you can say some lines 10 along removal and you swap around it and it'll intelligently go on. Work out with us. Went up and we'll do the same thing. But don't do it specifically for where these lines might have got a job. Is that doing? That's right. It's just fantastic Back, you know, do that. Yes, we could do this landscapes where you have a parallel lines going across the There's another example. There's so many different scenarios where you could really use that where this really stands, that stands out and doesn't sound amazing stuff. Is this one called clone Step? So this is a This is like a photo shop thing. It's zits. Amazing. So you now have total control. So he were I've got some some loose fly away. Yes, I'm gonna going. He tip on. Clone stamp were temple in this black area here and then petered Zoo gave pleasure. You can't. And when I swap, what I'm doing is on Italian now, Honest. Wanna replace this hair? But I want to replace it with exactly what I have selected a case. I'm going through there and see how it's dragging the long side. So they okay? And if I if I have my reference point down below and then I swap over you say here it's gonna it's just gonna I overtake naval lap. So what you want to do is go off to the side off, set it off, sitting it and then I'm going around in the lift. That way I could go away long he and not worry about it. Starting Teoh double up the side of her face and using bad and so offsetting it. Your reference point. As you swap up in depth, it's much better job. Okay, so that's that. Then we're tapping the settings. You've got his more control of it. So it's not just a matter of replacing it with an area tap on settings. You can change the size you compete. Zoom will change the size, But once you're getting really closing and then additionally make it smaller or larger. The hardness. I'll make it really large so you can see what's happy. Hartness. Basically, you see what happened there. So where we swap it will have a rule. Definitive shop pitch or it'll be have a nice soft age. So I like to go shop and then when I'm getting in really close than I go. Soft edge. So it's not. Not as obvious. It's It's much more subtle and delicate. This one here is, is a Passage e. So there's not working at all and they're to work 100%. So again, it's what? That softness taking going. They say at the moment, if I wanted Teoh dark in here, I don't know why I want to, But let's just say that, for example, Okay, not gonna hear one might get 50% opacity. Okay, Pick up left. You see that? It still has the detail underneath and you swap over the boys. Whatever the doctor and doctor and doctor goes, you can see there the capacity capacity, bring their Rotterdam dock, and they see how that's much more much softer. Ok? Oh, fantastic. Allow it even before and after. So you can see what's happening there before and after. Let's go to this image what we were doing before. So Okay, brush lies. Bring that down capacity. Bring the ride up. The capacity gives you call if I annoy aRer a margin of error. That thus let's bring that back. Bring it back a little bit. Okay, But stars there are rights never to go over. They have is really strong. Can I swept up there? That's actually pretty well reference Point office. It got through there. Okay. So easy, isn't it? I mean, that was really rough, but you get the picture. I mean, look at the eye healer out. Let's challenge ourselves here. The I So I'm gonna pick up the green. They can. I'm gonna get around. Yeah, Okay. You re on. Can I pick up the black? The black? Sometimes as you dragging and it drags, that reference point drags along. You need to reset it. So they were calorie that you got it. They work a little bit, comes back and intact, tepid again as you go. Which is what I'm doing right now. Blue. What? That people Green I'm digressing here on you. Think it's going to change it? All right, We'll do that. Get rid of that thing. So you see it It It's a fantastic tool. It's one of those ones for finishing touches and really cleaning up their image. So listen a cup of coffee. Really? Trip IOS and Android Fantastic app. 6. Details Tool - Sharpen Your Image: all right, the next victor, I'm going to show you in the pencil these day tiles Tep on day tiles and then a tap on a Just now there's two sections he wanted structure and one is sharp. Me now firstly explained sharp me every single pixel, every single dot in the image will be shopping guy, indiscriminate holy meat which could look really good. Every image, Native beauty shop me depending on the smartphone or iPad tablet the using some manufacturers will actually shop in the image more than others. When you save the fighter because, as you know, it all ended the image before you get saved. Unless you're shooting d NJ format for raw format. As you know now, structure will actually go in a shop in the contrast e areas of the image to the areas where these lines and that sort of thing that structure tell a really grand you really quickly say try and do that to a minimum. If you're doing the whole image, which we are in this occasion because we've we're doing that they are structure. Now, whenever I'm shopping, I like to pinch and zoom with my fingers. Okay? Pensions e to the Raj. You say that soon is doing to the sky. It's making it look, really. Book just over an ice is introducing that extra JP compression and artifacts and all that. You can see it all coming through. We do that. So let's just bring that back to where you don't see it. Generally speaking, I don't like beyond 21 structure. That's this is the one occasion where I'm gonna give you a number. But that said, with this image, forget end of the rocks here, okay? And make it all the way to the right. It actually looks pretty cool. Let's grab with that. So it really depends on the content of your image. So I'm gonna bring that back to back to around that 20 mark. Okay, Naked swap up or you compress it. Just got to shop me. Okay, Shopping. Now I'm going Teoh pigeons room again because the legs are a bit soft. So I want to bring the want to use that as my reference. Okay? And looking at the sky again, I don't want this card to start looking odd, so that's pretty good. Okay, so after full and after It's hard to say, isn't it? That's why we'll zoom mean. What do you mean? Okay. Could see some of those elements before. And you say it's quite soft, isn't it? And after message, different special and some images, it really is the difference between an S five and s non or or an iPhone six or or our night . Plus, it's the shopping, really, really enhances that some images, like macros when you sharpen those images. What? Well, I mean, it just really takes it to the next level and, like always, first the tick and that's that. That's done, so we'll move on to the next feature. 7. Tonal Contrast - Add Depth & Sharpness: eternal contrast. This is a fantastic Fator of Snap said, that you can't you don't find many other APs now. Contrast, basically, go back to that. One contrast is the difference between two things and something is black and white. Make it more black. More white is a higher contrast. Low contrast is, too. Reduce the black he and Doc in the White, and that turns into a grace. And that's a low contrast where things become a bit more similar. Not not. It's much difference between the two that never got any other way tonal contrast with this fatal working go into an image, and we can concentrate on just the highlights so you can increase the contrast. Just the highlights increased, decreased the contrast in the shadows and the stuff in between to the one in between the mid tones, which is where most of the a lot of fun stuff happens in an image where you get the most detail. It just really makes them pop. It had so much more depth. So he's in any meeting that I have here that has a lot going on in here, isn't it? It's a little bit a little bit soft. Not fantastic. Focus. Burger. Increase the details with sharp me just to show you first. We're going to details. Right? So we're zooming and remember, go to adjust structure running only more than 15 most of the time and then we're going to hear and going to sharp me. OK, give it a bit of a bit of a crank. Not too much. Bring it back to its orbit. Bit of a fake comparison. Sen. Ellas, you mean say how in a zoo mean everything's bickmore grainy and a bit more spotty? Inspector Lee. That's because it sharpen every single pixel in the image. So it's not. It's not quiet. I mean, you look at the before and after, so I hold a button. Okay. Is that before a little bit soft? I can't little bit soft, and it when I let go, everything's a bit sharper, but we've introduced that bit of degradation. E All right, so let's get rid of that. OK, Ok, so never gonna apply the tonal contrasts Tep on the pencil and it's in the middle. When we tap on this, it's going to applause and default settings. So they There we go tap on a just and you can see there it increased. Its increased contrast in all of them highlights me tones and the low times. Let's just bring that back to zero just so that I can show you. The difference can bring them back to zero. Bring them back to zero. So there's our before and after exactly the same. Second, say, has an applied anything. All right, let's concentrate first on the hard times so the high turns, What we're looking for is the bride injuries in the image. So if we look at these drums and these containers, he the global griffin, you on there, you can see this and bright spots and brighter spots on this. So if I want to swap, although out of the right say how behind the graffiti day I did before and after, you can see there's made those broad areas more bright. Okay, is that before in the Z after so it's added some detail to those bright areas their fortune . Unfortunately, when you look at the globes up the top there, there's there before a bit of a soft bit of A and B glow around the edges. When I let go. It's actually pulled those either hesitant sets made more of a defied line around this. There are pros and cons. I think it looks nice being going there. And you can go in there. And when I covered that in the other video of the stacks and lives, you can go and hearing and selectively apply so we can get back in their vacuum. You know what? I like the lights without it. So you can fix all that. Okay. I don't get too complicated right now, so we'll bring that back to about there. Next one, actually skipping constraints and low tides, alright. Saved the best for last low tones. So they are looking in, Say, the pile on there where you got the bride on the front and the back of the pilot and then in the middle. You've got the shadow in middle day. So only because I'm gonna crank this out. Okay. All right. So it is that before, So they had to be a bit soft in these air after now. I don't like it. Let's be honest. I think any definition in the shadows are like the shadows that have that that mystery. I like shadows. I bet we'd I love her nose in an image because of that's depth. And it's a bit of better shape to images. When you can see all the data files in the shadows, it kind of loses that that mood that if you like. Okay, so these up before and thereafter now another areas We look around the ground. It actually adds a lot of data to the objects that are on the ground. So and then you could selectively apply that to different areas. Let me bring that back, Rene. Kind of this one returns. Now there's lots of meat tones in this image than me. Times are not the bride areas, not the dark areas. It's the stuff in the middle, right? Something crank this up. Well, it's really sharpened it hasn't it, but it hasn't introduced that that degraded specially spots that you found with sharpening . So I've got a bit too much there, and this is the beauties you can spring with beckoned forward capacities that before in this thereafter all right, right, and they move around. Let's have a look on the grand here is there before these air after that as a lot of data, hasn't it? It's goes all the way back yet before and after. And this is one of those things that you can apply to the whole image. Or you cannot convention to get back into that stacks Sertic after the stacks. I'll show you quickly. Here. I've got a more extensive video on this view in its eternal contrast Temple Net, Step on the mask. So now we can go in here and step on that. Then the bottom need another mask, which is where you can actually see what you swap with your fingers. So we're going here. We're gonna swap, okay? Just taking off. So I'm gonna go in there and just applaud this shop, Nick, exactly where I want it. Okay? Graffiti is I'm gonna highlight some of this was sharpened some of this stuff debris on the ground, kind of the drums. Graffiti on the graph, A need to stand out because that's part of the story with this image. Okay, over there. So now what we behind the other zoomed out. But we don't do that before. Okay? In the after type of the musk, they can see exactly where I've been swapping. Take that off before and the after. Pretty cool, isn't it? I mean, it's subtle, and that's what I love about it is. It's Satel editing. It's It's enough that it will bring back the data files and bring back the authenticity of the image as you sort. So that's tonal contrast, and it's fantastic. 8. Selective & Brush Tool - Local Adjustments: through tools of a show You now at the brush tool and their selective talk there would have opened up their image in snap. Say, this is one that I've played around with a little bit, and it now I'm going to get in there and do my local adjustments for low into the pencil. Okay. And brush. That's it. Now, within brush, you've got dajun burn, exposure, temperature and saturation. You know, when you select one of both Apollo goes to dodge and burn, and it's that's with plus 10 to your plus 10 plus five arises. They can undo what you've done minus and miners. Okay, so the minus will darken areas so weakened around here in dark. And these areas one dark in the ages, the corners should say when it docked in the corner. So you can actually you could apply vignette. Well, you can just go in here, indulge in boot and and and, uh, Doc in those ages, you know, if that's too strong, got a minus five. If that. If if you find that, uh, it's not quite looking right, you can just go in there and hit the a riser and swap back over it. Remember that tip you consume all the way out? And then within 23 swaps, you've done the whole lot of raised the whole thing nice and quick and easy. Well, someone we're going, he doctor, in these ages, And you may notice that edge it's one over, you incrementally increasing the effect as well. All right, just be aware of that. You want to do or you don't want to do No one. I want a ride to go to that cascading waterfall, so that itches. They're providing the context, which is fantastic. But it's not the story. It's not. That's not the memory of this. This location that I want trying like this on. Okay, behind there. But the water line during he that's a bit brought. Their someone's gonna dock in that off a little bit before and after sex. Ed. Quite a quote. Get there. Right. Tap on effect. Exposure. The exposure of dodge and burn. Yes, they're very similar exposure. You have small increments. You can see he 0.7 point three. Okay, Once I got a couple of different ones dates. All right. Um, a fund. That brush tool is quiet. receive. Did you have the mosque here? So you can say what you wouldn't type of the musk you could see. We were deployed It. You saved my finger Pain, which is owe Could fund figure pining takes us back to our childhood, but it's You go in here and you can see it's no. It's just much on site. There's no definitive itch. There's no edge to it. It's just that smear of the effect that makes it all right. We'll go to temperature. So this is where you can cool down things or you can make it go to modesty, give you an example. But the mask on, that's why who's coming out red? But you could see he before, after it's making it quite blue. Can someone over rice just undo that? Okay, show you again. Water has a blue kind of look to it. It does. You see some of those really vibrant rainforest images like these, and you'll see people going deliberately blew the water. I could see what they do that, uh, it makes it look more fresh. I think on the day this was, uh, quite quite what and that was what was quite time appealing to the water was was gushing that was brought wide. It looked fresh so I could see what people do. The blue. I'm finding looking at this by applying that blue. It's really aggressive, like it's too much, even with the point of minus five. So it's gonna undo that. You could say that. Ah, and also we'll get back to the temperature again, but increasing it we can make things warmer as well, so we can make it look like there's a bit of warm sunlight in that. This was a bit of a morning. Okay, so I was going out of grain area is just a bit of a warmer tongue in the rocks. Just selective not going over the water cause I don't want that. That orange tint affecting the water, some avoiding those areas. I was going around. They okay happy with it. What effect? Saturation knows where I'm going. There. Really. Increase plus 10 could really make these colors punch again. I'm avoiding the water. I don't but the book where there's some color in the rock could sector right that the green he's been down here the most on there just really bring that. We'll bring that forward. And the army, Okay. And same with any of these things. The more you use. Do you mean everyone? The mosque kind of millions. Do you mean the more accurate you will be? Most per sauce, you obey. Hey, it in off the mask years and before news thereafter. That's one. Unless it's worked quite well. Uh, really quick and easy brush tool. It works in this image. Other images where there's a definitive edge, like a horizon where this guy might be rob rig, for example. And the water is blue and you try and swap over the age, you know, the effect will bleed over into the other contrast in part of the image. All right, so, uh, gonna undo that Chris in the X Now, I'm gonna go into the paint. So looking happen. Selective. Okay? And he with the selective this but fires my favorite tool within snaps it. And basically, we could just go in there and we can drop a pin. Someone's gonna drop peen on this green area here. Okay? Because it's blue. You could say these Penis active. Well, I hope my finger on their drag direct that Pena around. Okay, you can see we have a magnifying loop and the color say the color around the outside of the circle. That tells us the color that we have dropped the peanuts right there. That's green. I'm gonna let go now. Well, that's active. Pinch and zoom with your fingers and you can see what's happening here. It's selecting other pixels around that pin that match the color of the tone of that exact little that you dropped it on. It's safe to say here can somebody they activate that pain, but principal pressing somewhere else they have the that the Blue disappear. So it's active. Found that just about tapping somewhere else on this Great. Now that's now that's an active anymore. I consume me tap on that again. You know, in a pension zoo. See what's happening here. It's selecting other green moss around that area. So now we gon and garage inal doc And that, uh, it is only doing that Where is with the brush tool? You had fallen that as we're brushing and we set your running, we might set you right. The the of water well slumping up and then you got other options. You contrast saturation and structure, which is shopping. So I'm not gonna saturation here humping that right up just to the fire extreme just to show you. Let's see how that is specifically, just during that one area. Okay? And when you're pinching Zoom, you could bring a riding to just that one little spot. How cool is that? I love it. It's just It's so accurate. Okay, I am going to bring that rock back. Curry. You're a little bit saturation. Brightness. You brought this? Just bring it back a bit. All right. Uh, we're also we got we got this, doctor, his brand nimal mope around. They work brown, all right, because they're picking up all the air. Is that sound car say, today we can really experience, but let's see again, I'm going on about it. But it's not touching the water at all. It's not affecting the words just those brain years. And they are going on a dock in those theories liken brought in them. I think doctoring making the doctor looks good. And when his doctor, I can that sexual write it and it won look ridiculous. What's brought and sack. Your eyes look really unrealistic so I can crunch at saturation A bit more Alright. Struck him and these the shop Me. You remember the shop anyway, you had the structure and shopping the two options. The structure is where lies the shopping to that areas where there is contrast Some of you like that. So when you doing shopping, remember, resume in. That is Do you mean they activate the teen? Zoom in, kept the pain and then we can see we're making it Soft era focus Orbit shopper. Okay, I'm happy with that, but that All right, let's add another peen. All right, so I'm gonna go over to the border here. I'm going drinking with and make sure that I was selected the what? Okay, if I could make that more white. So now I'm similar to the tune image. We had the highlights. They get brought in Dr the harlots. You might have noticed with harlots when you go in dock in the hall at you. Really? Hi. Liar. Really? It just looks it can look really ordinary, but this wife, because we're doing the broadness of just those broad areas you don't get any does that effect? It's really cool. So they just brought an end of brought in that era. Or I could make a Dhaka were actually tighten that. That's that. I really bright, uh, what we're trying to say where it's just pure wife. We're trying to reduce that cell. I doesn't go bang straight to that beat. What? Blob? Hot. Okay, so you do the same over here, right? Activate two star could zoom in a little bit. What a day! And I could bring that back. You know, you need to look at and go. Is that the look we're going for going too far? It's not. We'll come for you. Just give you a clue on the left. Now I think it works well because but reducing that broadness, you can say the textures. You can see that it looks it looks quite nice. We do too much. Yeah, this is Look, this what's great about it. Finally had subjective you might be looking at What is he doing? But for May, that's this is or where my I was going and and what I saw on that down that I'm trying to do is try to make this phone and more authentic by editing it. Okay. All right. It's grateful, darkening areas. Somebody going to the water here. And I could like that, doctor. You see that? But darkening just the area similar to the pain, the reflections of the of the water cascading water that the life of reflections unaffected . So it's stocking it, but not darkening. All of it. Can you start to see where this could be? Really helpful. You can copy. Okay. Temple. It was somewhere else. And then Paste says pace that the identical adjustment to another area, a copy placed over here. Okay, that's just been a bit of a bit of time there. Um, another thing you could do is you can pick up a peen and you can drag it, take a drag to somewhere else, and it's to be really handy. I'm sorry where it could be handy with this one. I'm gonna just brought in this and just right around up. Do you see here where I drag it? It's brushing it. It's like putting a spotlight on on an area. It's really cool. Logue here in the Royal, but back to the any bring up living. So there is hope before. And they're often the two options the brush tool and the selective to I'm gonna show you another image now. So now I have a flower. It means, you know, sure. You the Russian and they selected again. So we gotta brush, okay? And I'm going to go to saturation and I'm gonna decrease that saturation. You decrease the sound. The edge of the flower this time. Very minus 10. You see? See how when I swap Put the mask on as I'm doing it. It's really hot. I'm going around around around like, these time brushing, rushing round heat and you could see as a mission is incremental. The more you swap soil of swapping log, some here is going to be tika and some areas gonna be seen are you can see what's happening . Heat. We've lost a lot of color. Analyze pick areas where I've swapped over a number of times that it's just not working here. All right, pencil selective. Trump the teen scroll up to saturation increase of degrace. All right, and then decrease. Take. You see, they it's applying it evenly amongst that across that whole area a copy over to another area with his abroad. Color. People tell us that that's going too far and just bring it because I want some color they're not want to look to read. And here we bring that back a little bit. He's in before these are often that's making the flowers stand out. A little bit more reason about the sexual writing, the background, and it works so much better with this. Like we've talked, you know, another benefit going to here, and I'm gonna go into middle of the flower. He regular arena. Make sure it's a real nice pink color. It's a little those great a structure, nothing crunch that all right is ever full. Is there After that? I'm just applying the shop. Me just to the pink areas. It's just selective. This is This is something that's missing on nearly every inbuilt photo. Editors. These local adjustments were even going there be really per sauce. All right, so that's an example. We're going. We'll have another one. We're going to hear where they got this broad area. Okay, What area? And so just that area knocking that off a little bit. Okay. Is that cool? is our after they could see how powerful it is, Mr T. And we don't That's the brush and a selective tool. There is another option for local adjustments like this will cover, and that's the masking within the lives of the Stack said. It's a little bit more complicated, but we'll try and track that down for you. 9. Add Background Blur Using Snapseed: background, blurred fire eyes. Why don't we do it? What does it work so well? And why I, the latticed my friends investing so much technology and artificial background blow The reason is, is that it creates a much more acidic replacing photo, doesn't it? If you think of portrait photography, the persons in focus the background is out of focus because the main subject is the person . So you under I drawn to them now with the I found you have the portrait mode is called portrait mode, but that before you control with anything so you can have a jar of Jame or something like that, your product photography or even landscapes of the four grand element will be in focus in the background could be blurred. So it's not just for people that works for any subject, and it works really well where you can't control the environment. Sometimes you might be an event in your taking photos of groups, or you can only negotiate the scene so much so introducing the background blue uh, per state, it is fantastic, Snap said, have a way of doing that. Diver lens blue. I'm also going to show you a couple of absolute will do the job also. But let's start with Snap. See? So I have to see me to see This was taken in Melbourne and I wanted to capture the bites of high bikes down there. So I took these low angles and he actually shoot through there. And I got the context of the background Federation square, the person bringing in the bikes. I'm telling a bit of a story here, but I want to have experiment with this one, and I want the bike, the wheel to be more of the focus in this image. So we got a pencil. Okay, then the second lost Rhodey with lens blur. Right? But the fault is a circle, so I just drank that blue dot in the middle of the will. And I can expand with my fingers and make that circle bigger. You see, there turns into an oval and then just drag my fingers out. Okay? Uh, so that's quite natural. Looks okay. All right. Tip on. A just blustering so we can blow that background even more. And you can see that there's actually two circles. So one is the inner circles. Everything in focus that our circle is. Everything's out of focus. And in between is the gradual, uh, what they call it, G transition. That's a good descriptive work. That's the transition from a teen focused what's out of factors so you can actually increase or decrease that. So it's gotta be extremely so doing. This will actually help you go around and get the exact right spot. So bring that and a little bit because you can see exactly where the farmers were tattoo factors. That's pretty good. What's with that transition? We want to blame this so it doesn't look too silly. All right, so he's Patty City in focus, but their eyes drawn to the middle of that wheel isn't an actual labeling on the wheel. So I like that. Okay, next one we have here is cool vignette strength. Vigna is actually the outside edges of this out of focus the outside edges. You can either make it dark up like that. Well, you could make a broader Someone who reaches will actually benefit from being brought us when they're like this doctor because our eyes drawn to what's in focus. But it's also drawn toe worries brightest, most vivid. So when the ages a read a focus and darker, less saturated colors, that sort of thing, our eyes don't go to the ages that go into this enters this world. Toronto Chafee So this works quite well. So there's a tap on this. It isn't before. And there's a Rafa That's pretty son listening. Now that works, a circle works there. Another option tip on, tap on elliptical. And he didn't turn into leaning out Sunday can actually turning toe a line. So I dragged my fingers around, okay. And with this image is really not working so well, you can turn that around 2/3 vertical, so we can try that. But it just doesn't for May, it just doesn't look natural. So I'm gonna show you another image where this will actually work much better. All right, so this is another image that I captured in Melbourne. This if we're going to the pencil better lens blow. This is gonna be much better for the elliptical in the meal. Is in focus. Doesn't quite work. Got a linear to never drag this down. The clacks, they're in focus and the background that distance and because there's a horizontal line. This is gonna work much better. The distance will be out of focus. So blur Okay, that's been a bit too much. And bring back a little bit. Swap up or Tapia, Just to get to transition, we can increase or decrease that transition. I think that looks good in the blue strength back. So here's that before and there is after and you notice that the vineyard as well. So the vignette bought default at some. So if we don't like them to be, and yet we could just make that 00 that out. Okay, so you better the ads much to us. I'm gonna reduce that quite substantially. So there's that before there's the after. So this is an example with the linear, the lines will work quite well. This is more how a traditional camera works as well. What were they called? Depth of field. So in front of the subject will be out of focus and behind the subject will be out of factors. These are Can replacement APS like the portrait mode live focus that they will actually blow just the background, not the four graph. Right. There are a couple that will do it focus, which is an IOS app that that will give you the building that blew the front and the back. So I'm gonna show you that one Now are there to show you actually show you on the iPhone 10 because it needs the Jewell lanes captured with the portrait mode. 10. Add Background Blur Using After Focus App: So if show to Linz blurring snap, say it's great with the elliptical and Alinea doesn't really good job. But there's another app here that I want to show you. Call after five pissed its single purposes. Anything it does doesn't really well. It's available on IOS and Android. So what we do is basically we temple you want to select, read the background. Any guys through it guesses the mosque, and you see there is not a pretty good joke. Can you focus? Bring those Be Tina's? Well, actually, no, that's not part of it. That didn't even better job to me. We want focus, zoo mean what? Those in there, That's the background. Every guy. Now that's perfect. Now the reason why this is that such a really good job is because there's a strong contrast between the colors s said that's really competitive, good helping him there and go to the next and is the bluest tap on blur, and he can increase the blur of side. It looks ridiculous and looks like we're just paste it on May, or you can bring that back so to what you desire, and then you have a picture where it could change the bouquet. Bakar, however you want to pronounce it, changes the shape and that sort of thing. Really, I think it's a bit silly. Just leave it the way it isn't default. So blue little, you like it and that's pretty good. Anybody's that one. He could mission blue, and you figure it out that sort of thing a little bit. There's a little bit of extra stuff in here. You can add Cem filters and that sort of thing, but I just find that it's a really handing lens, Blue said. For the background, Blue doesn't really good job for those tricky photos that you may have multiple subjects where you can put a circle on them, circle on there and you put a linear across and you get some background. So this is just the way he can go on select different areas within the same fire. Keeping five pizza here is an example. Let's go back a step, okay? And silently want to actually keep those leaves in there. That's what kept these lazy name Zoom in. All right, we guy in the background, okay? Yeah. So you keep them in focus as well so. So see how we can keep multiple part of the immediate focus to grow it up. One definitely have on your on your phone as well. 11. Expand Tool - Add Extra Canvas To Image: we're gonna cover the expand tool now for a while when I first discovered this is a time crosses like where I use that for. And then I had the perfect scenario just recently was adding this product pharaoh to my website that I sell different smile found accessories and this tripod when I captured captured as a vertical image. Yet on my website have the mold square. And then when you go into the pain till here and you corrupt this image, can I want to crop this into a square? Okay, So what happens? He off of cop the top of the bottom. So I'm gonna either have the top there or the problem that I can't get it all in there. All right, So now with the expand tool, I can actually expand the edges and turn into a square right pencil, expand step of the second rule on the right, OK? And Lewis, just expand their sides and feel move. You can make it. What? You can make it smart smile. What that does is that we'll actually look about on the inside similar to the healing tool or the perspective toe. Look at what's inside the line there and then copy it. And that's what it's done here. Suppress the tick. They have been evacuated. This the heli going to crop, make it a square. And here we go, actually make a square. That's 11 way for product photography. Fantastic. You can. Instead of going back and re shooting it, I could do that. Another example is for landscapes. Way you might have a vertical limit. You're turning toe a horizontal off our sir versus. So let's have a look at another photo. All right, so he's a square fighter, and this is one that I've captured as a square because it was nice framing at the time. But you know, I made won't make this New Orleans have shared on Facebook or on the website where I went. Actually, keep that 69 perspective that I like, so we're not going to hear in order to pencil expand and a little bit extra here. A the sought my for to Renda does pretty good job. Press the teak. Now we're going to crop 69 and it's just it's given me more to play with. And you could say that unless I big blotchy, not fantastic, that I could move around that I can heal over top of that. We have got the extra areas here with this gaps in the trees. I'm knowing they're in hell, that basically it's given me more options than if I just had it before before I expanded it . So that's another example. It's not a gimmick. It's actually there. Could be really helpful. It works beautiful for Seascape fire, so let's have a little one more. All right, so he is not to say, stepping reach personally, pencil expand. And I got a little bit on the right here. Just add a little bit there, a little bit more there because this was a 75 perspectives. But I like the 69 as I mentioned. So what's going here in Adelaide? Yeah, that a great job there. You may find that if you just go incrementally a little bit of the time and that's doing a better job before when I went too far. So they go back to the original doing one late. You see there, see the step in the peace they have goes along and the drops picks guy. Okay, I'll do It just affected us that history A little bit of time. A little bit, A little bit. Should fast for through the video. Should know. All right. Don't left the bit more on the right side. Okay, Now press the teak and you see he this. So you see, he now I can never forget the pencil crop 69. And I've given myself more than more real estate. Now it's a little bit Work here needs to be done. The left side that will do that. OK, bring that through to their NBC's going there and touching up. Touch it up a little bit. Just a little bit. Just that it doesn't look like it's a copy. So it's gonna go in there and really clean. Nice. Speaks up. Yeah. So they okay. What kind of an extra lot there in a moment? It is good of that. Don't lose that, guys. To return that 75 aspect into a 69 by expanding the sauce. That's another practical example 12. Snapseed Tips, Shortcuts & Hacks: you're probably like me. You've probably skipped ahead and going straight to this month. This lesson within the module tips, hacks and shortcuts because that's what we want, isn't it? We want this course to take away their learning curve and expedient. L understand how to use the features and get the most out of it. That said, this course, the reason why you've purchased that he's the guy from the stars through to the more advanced in each of those subjects in each of these tools are going to each of them in more detail and cover tips that you may know you may pick up one or two extra that you didn't know. Which is why I've kind of trying to pull some of those into this. This lesson here a lot. First of all, no gas to have some of the navigation. So I've got this image open here. Now we're in the home screen so we don't have any of the editing tools of the looks or styles open with just what we've opened up the image. A couple of things double tap when you double tap that quickly, Zumstein does, and you can say that Blue Square. Once you got that blue square there, you put your finger on there and you can move around. Okay, All right. And they pinch in zoo. One thing I love about this app is when you pinch and zoom while you've still got your fingers on the screen. You can then move around and quickly navigate all different passing me. So let's do that. Pigeons who can move around pinching, zooming to there and back up to their It's just so quick, isn't it? Next, I want to show you these. We were going to one of the many tools, so let's go into eternal contrast. But the fault that's added quite a bit, which is really cool. Sign begin double tap, and you can go in there and say exactly where it's applying that. Sometimes you might find that especially day tiles or sometimes the Ambien to be turned the ambience right back. You might find 100%. It's not quite enough for you, really likely affecting you want and a little bit more. You can't go beyond 100% either way. So what you do is what you're good. Pass that 100% so Let's go into the deterrent. Crank that right up press The teak got back into that tool again the second time. Okay, back in the midterms and in going there, you can crank it up a little bit more. This image will benefit would benefit from a lot more contrast in there cause it's a little bit soft. It's better than the original, but it's still a little bit softer. It's 100% and then adding a little bit more rights go out of the the next. Well, under show is when you're in one of these tools. So let's go in here, too, What we do, Let's go drama in the Casey going to one of these. What you could do is when you're editing it and you go in hearing, okay, filter strength. Bring that back saturation. You play around with it before you press that. Take that check mark in the corner. If you just hold your finger on there, you can see the before, which is really great for things like the sharpening of mention already. But saturation is another cause it he can't ever. Your eye becomes June Dean with what you're doing and if you forget what the original was like So hard your finger on the sea before and after you do have in the top right corner there, that icon for before and after that certain alternative. But I find if I'm moving in and around here, this is nice and easy to actually see that before and after Zoomed in. Where I am is I'm going along. Okay, now, when you're back here to the home screen, when you do the same thing, it will actually go right back, not just to the what your your last date of a right back to the very start. So let's have a look at this one. That's the original edit that I'm playing with. You could say it's quite different. And then that's the after. So it just two things inside the length toe. Whatever. Using it will go back to the start of the edit, that specific edit tool that using back in the home screen we're calling this the home screen. It'll go right back to the very start, all right, True. Knew each. Let's start with that one. There's a couple of tips in here that I want to cover up? No, I've covered some of them already. It just we grow. I would never get to start a brightness and worked. How idea why the idea work? This is I got to ambience first. The ambience is a combination of a few things. So I'm gonna ambience First shadows is my next. Bring that. Damn! Then I'll go up to brought this. And this is where I'm starting to balance. Now I'm signing a balance that brought this. Say the broadness is brought back up, but it's introduced Mawr off decreased. The Italians have decreased. The show knows of increased the overall brightness. But what happened to the highlight is that hasn't been decreased. That's just bring increased. So now I'm going to highlights and I could go on. Decrease that. And now it becomes a balancing act. It s a he's a before and after. So now we kind of just playing around tweaking Well, each of those go back and forth. That's my prices. I'll do ambience, shadows, brightness, then highlights. And then he finally to they're not going to things like contrast. Contrast this good here, total tonal contrast filter is much better warmth. Tha This is where you can switch between the cooler, more blue image or warmer, more orange image, really it it's quite good, but again, there's a better tool. He walked balance with comfort that earlier Next thing already cover here is details. Now I love sharpening images because back in the SLR muralists field, I I used to get lens envy, and one of the things you get with more quarrel with a high quality lens is that sharpness , you get extra sharpness. But when it comes to energy, the kind of levels the playing field, because you can go in there and in the editing, you can go and recreate that shop. In this ad, small sharpness in every image benefits from being shopping. But my preference before you get into that, he's actually let's get into it. Tonal contrast already mentioned it before, increases a contrast, but what it does is it increases the contrast, really close into those areas and you can choose picking truce and you see here let's go before and after. Do you mean before and after that you can see there. It's analyzed data on most pilots there. This is not a high resolution image, but you can see that it's really benefiting from from that sharpness. It's a total contrast and then go back and use the data. All details tool. Let's get into perspective the next. Also tip on the pencil sick and roll up their perspective. They got a few options here. I start with Tilt First because till is where you can make it look like you've taken image for a larger angle, higher angle or off to the side. Really handy particular for indoor images where you have a door frame or a wall. And if you haven't taken image from exactly the meat white point in that wall, you'll start to get that that Boeing or kind of a Tilton's diminishing lines they called Cell. It's going there. We just talked back and forth. They'll go there, all right, and then from there, then are going to free form and I'll start to play around with it a little bit more before and after, you could dramatically change the look. This is not necessarily better, but you can dramatically change the look, but I start with tilt first. As you know, selective is one of my favorite tools that lets go into their the pencil and will tip on selective. Just a recap where you dropped the pain. It selects the exact pixel, the time, the color, that sort of thing. And then you bring your pinch and zoom. It will expand and make a selection beyond just that one pixel on. Select a range of similar colors. Tones. So you say they were increasing that threshold, increasing that area. So when we're going to brightness and all that sort of thing, it will increase all that area that's highlighting in red. OK, sometimes, as you can see there because the water is similar to the pile on. Because this is the monochrome, there's no difference in color. Obvious difference. It is a similar tone, and so what you could do is instead of going in there again, I just want to go to a point beyond before the water is affected, then going drop, another being another Pete. What you can do is God drop to Peens either side of the parlor. Hey, we got to reduce these their selections. Don't taking the pilot there when you go back to the pilot, pinch and zoom and it kind of overlap have kind of a lot because you can't make a selection here in a selection there and blamed the to it works independent of each other. So you got it here, You got a Don't touch this area. Don't touch the Syria Now. We'll drop a pin here. Yeah, Okay, now, just one. The area between and no overlapping. So you see here when we go in, we got dark in that pile on. It darkens a pilot and doesn't affect the water. So really cool tip. Another one we've covered earlier is basically you can tap on there, you can copy, and you can go in there and paste that step somewhere else on the screen. And they paced reduced that selection. So just a way of speeding up that selective process. If you could have a couple of them and just copy and paste them and just move them around just quickly I can't deactivate that paint. Just tap anywhere. Us near weaken, pensions, er, Zeppelin etiquette with your finger on the pain Drag it all wrong and you can see Bring that back that Pete's Dragon. And you can see that look and it took me a while to discover this dragging around. And then that will actually help you now exactly where you've dropped the pain. Because when sometimes when you're zoomed our you drop the pain, you can't see exactly where it is that you've dropped it. You see, here it's changing color as we move around. Uh, really handy. Okay. So happy with that one gone and another peanut sometimes also, when you're moving, you're working at a further away. You want to run a drop in directly on it, see what happened there, were trying to drop a pin on there and won't let me all it's doing its selecting that pain . If you want to put a pin right next to it, drop us up one somewhere else anywhere else. And then now you can go and you can drag that one. Class A. You guys were dragging it, and now if you dragged it in class now you've got to Pete's really close to each other. It's when he's healing. So pencil healing. You know, I mentioned earlier here. He's really fantastic, but looks reasonably well in he Battery Tatchell retouch available on Android and IOS. Apple is much better you can do the same thing is here, but you've got a lot more options. Well, there's even a long remover. So if you are powered, you just got to select it inside on and it will work at the law and get realize really, really cool. Really handy. And it's a couple of one. I'll show you tools that we haven't covered yet in the course that they're in the next module and that is Crips and masking within the stacks. Liars starting to the confusion How if you haven't, If you're not familiar with those tools, just skip this because I'll cover these tips in those modules and in those lessons. But first of all, let's cover curves. Tap on the pencil curves now curves as you'll discover is a very powerful tool. You can drag this bottom edge. You make the blacks the areas that are black, more black and select Ah Doc areas and Michael Ian Black, a pure black safe and really adds in turn and really, really incredible contrast, they say, human going to presets. You have a couple of different options here. You say that what's happening is it's dropping a pin on their line and creating a new angle to the lives. Let's get a self contrast, all right. It's dropped two pins. Their you know what you can do is put your finger on that pin, and sometimes you see what's happening here. Drunk. Put my finger on the pin, and it's doing that before and after. If it does that, put your finger on there and as you put your finger on there, just move it and then you actually pick it up a lot easier. So it's going here. So what happened that I've just picked it up straight away. But what? Trump put my finger on the remove it with something that worked that last time. But every time put your finger on there and swap and it picks it up straight away. That's a bit finicky, isn't it? What you say he Sometimes you want to something that's really grungy, like if I do something like like this and you land that we said really funky results in your own. No, no, I just want to get rid of that. Well, you could do is pick up one of those pains again, and they just swipe it straight out of the square. You can see that. So I pick up this pain and it driving all the way up. Mr. Okay, Dragon, all the way out. Pick up that last one. Drink away at and insulate. It gets rid of it because you can have upto 11 pins off somewhere. Try and avoid that. Have his few pins you can to correct that. The contrast or that Look in there. But if you find a market up, just swap it up. So the last one I wanted coverage is masking. Now this what I'm showing you here applies to a lot. Just about every other tour. So basically, the closer you get in on make precise, you make precise adjustments, zoom back out. But it's easy to show you with this tool. So I'm gonna go in here and go what we do day titles. Let's crank it up. Really ridiculous. Crank it up. They can't right now. Up the top. Here we have the icon for Stax. They call a more layers tip on that go to view it it All right. You see here all the different steps where we've we've applied a tick or a check mark. It's going to save each of those so fast. We've gone original. The grunge details data was tonal contrast. More details in the last one data. You should see this image is a low resolution. I was quite soft. Really needs them cranking up. So we've gone to the extreme here. So I tap on that, and we have the masking tool in the center. All right, so you see here is going back to the original. So now we gotta paint and swapping exactly where we want it. And we have this feature down here. The mask, the little I I caught taking tap on that. So tape on the handle to swap. Okay, You see, he have other, but zoom back out of you, okay? Swept down here. See how that selected a large area. Not really. That funny Arzu mean, You see, the edge of that area is quite fuzzy, and it's quite a nice even transition from where I've ended it to where it's not, it's it's it's a smooth transition. It's blended nicely. If, on the other hand, you want actually just increasing the sharpness of the water that doesn't look really nice . We want nice and smooth. If you want to do just the parliament, you can zoom in and the 30 is We mean you produce is really narrow line and much more accurate selection. OK, so we're going there. Okay, just make a bit rough. Now I can zoom out and feel that in a little bit more. Okay? So you can see big difference, isn't it? So what is much more accurate, but zooming in narrow lines Shopper Ridge and the other is is much more Valeri Smooth transaction transition. And it can look quite nice depending on what you two are you goalies. Sometimes you might want to swap a whole half of an image. If that's the case really quickly doing its depictions in the whole image and make it nice and small like that. You see? There what happens? See that on lines? The circle that's the size of airbrush zoo mean? That's the size of my brush in a finger. A brush. OK, so zoom back out. You see that? We can go to select half the image all in one quick guy, so back to zero we can going if we want to like that age. What shopper? This is a big difference. Yeah, I hope that helps Either you pre to Caymus or you post Teoh social maize. They go and reduce the file size and their compress, and you actually lose a lot of sharpness. Sharpness is a great one. Uh, details structure, the contrast elements and then shopping every pixel. It's really good. It's handy. 13. Versatile & Powerful Curves Tool Explained: we're going into curves now. This is one of the most complicated and intimidating tools within Snap State are now. It's intimidating because I have been here on out, has scary and looks and with when you start experimenting, he can credit real funky out of control of fixed when she had deliberately manipulate the curves. Explain what it is and when and why you would use it. Fantastic tool. There's two main parts to it, one I'm gonna cover in the next model. And that's the color channels in There is where you can just really cool color toning, different that cinematic look and tell us Typical filter looks that you're seeing images. We'll cover that in the next one. Where do we start? I think we'll start with the history, Graham, that this is the little graphic you can say behind the diagnose HLA You can see here of my SM page now that sense for shadows, mid tones and highlights. So where they the data picks, you could see that's where most of the details. Even so, if we had a black image, it would be picking really high where that s is and you would see a lot of real pick high and there were just taper off disappear. There's no me of other information. We had a really brought in it on a white image. Then all the information will be over in the hate in the highlights. When I saw the information again, it'll be picking up really high and then be really low. Well, you have an image like this with this. There's lots of mid tones, which is the in between the white and the black tonal range is there's lots of information , they said, speaking up really high. We don't have too many dark shadows. So guys goes down and we don't have too many highlights as well. So it goes down somewhere. You're ideally perfect world. Not all image is gonna be the hope. This, for that matter, your intention might not be the have a perfectly exposed, balanced, like dark image. Technically speaking, ideally, you wanna have that while I pull a bell? Perhaps they wanna have lots of data on mid tones, which is where you regularly vibrancy from and then taper off about the broad spots and the dark spots. So that's what dealing what you're looking for And that's what I provide your here. Next. It is these dying a line. So what does it mean? Down in the bottom left corner, you will see a dot up in the top right corner, your center on the top. What they are are your black point in July? What point? I want to show you a practical example here. So this is a flower photo. This is typical of an iPhone. The phone. I was a little bit washed out. And when I say that, it has a lot of detail, and that's why natural, but it's no vibrancy there. And Samsung and other Android really have it. Only I find generally speaking, they're just look more punchy. So this is where we can use the curves into the pencil curves up on the top row there. All right, now I'm gonna have a living on a neutral, and I'm gonna just the black point. What point? So what? The black? I'm gonna bring the scene and just increase the amount of black in the image with what's it's have a bit of a plight, okay, but not too far down. The what's become great because we're reducing the intensity of the What's the man of the image. That is what's so, my God, talk about their because I can go and increase the brightness overall in the midterms, you got pretty much leave those day. So that's that's not too bad. All right, that we're gonna create be off. Bit of contrast. Bit of an S curve. So there's that before, and these are after. So you can say there that instantly we've made that more punchy heavenly presets. Lots of different presets in here. Let's have a look what they would have done. Soft. They've offered us the opportunity brought in the whole image, docked in the whole image. And you see what's happening here. Say, headed down that dark in back in the brush in. You could see what exactly? Like I explained before they just increased that whole bell curve with a curve. The line Either way, hard contrast. Let's leave it. Let's go back to self contrast and then adjust their black point in what points A black point. What point? Yeah, I think that was fantastic. And then from there, then we can go into eternal contrast. We've covered this early in a previous model and go into hard times so we can go in there and we can increase the tonal adjustments of the broad areas of the flower. Really, really making that text to jump at the moment. We me tones Let's go back in the instrument a little bit. We could say that there's their before and after of these adjustments. Yeah, this is if your intention is to do this, we just wanted brought white flour than is otherwise doing it. We want to get as much detail out of the flare as we can. So now we're back to the Home Street, hold the before and after. Look at that system. Amazing is is really punching out, jumps off the screen. That's the power of the curves. And then using it without the tools like tonal contrast, the tune image of that sort of thing. Hold by six Border control Rick profit, all that sort of thing. And you could really make something special out of this image. So I quit it for you here. When you're dropping these pins on there, you can drop upto 11 off them. You can't, which is just crazy. You don't get that many. All right? When you've made a mistake with one or you put in the wrong spot, you want to get rid of it, simply pick up there, p and they swap it off the square graph even see, they say, pick up the swap it off. People wanna swap it off Sam with that one. Sparkly. Yes. Okay. No, I just keep That's through. They from here? This quick tip, This one I found really frustrating trying to never get this using these interface because I'm not using a mass and using my finger. Were you? When you got to select that pain, if you just put your finger on their sometimes it'll just spits Time is putting your finger anywhere else in the immediate or just do a before and after. So what I found was that if I put my finger on that blue pin and as something my fingers move it, it picks up that spot. Stride away. It does. If I tried going to the shallows near and I'll try and move it can't see how it's just done that just it's done it before and after. But if I swipe picks it up and moves it. You say there is I mentioned before people that not just have one peen one pain in Christ the broadness But the widest part of the mission candles hasn't changed. The blackest part of the image hasn't changed. Listing price that IRA brought us and in a role Broadus is reduced. Contrast is like that. Okay, I just want to meet times. Do it that way If I want just the candles. Did that one Bring that there. Okay, Now the candles have brought up the brought his areas of product and rushed through that a little bit. Benefited. But listen like this is you got the video here. You've got the notes back in the page and you can also listen to the audio. You can get back, pause it, listen to it. Best thing to do is to actually, while you're watching this, going to an image and actually play with it yourself and see what's going on. It's the best way to learn is just give hands on 14. White Balance - Correct Colour Cast Issues: What balance? A little bit Tricky. This one. We're gonna cover it without getting too technical. Basically, this is your color correction. It is smartphones. Nowadays, fortunately, do an amazing job. I find myself really having to fix it when I'm doing some photo editing. Uh, there are some scenarios. Will. Your camera will be tricked where there is an over saturation of one particular color and it'll create a color cast onto other objects. An extreme example would be a a blue dinner plan. You've gotta, What piece of tofu in the middle of it, then that what will struggle to be a what? It'll have a blue tinge to it. Um, another example that used to be a problem. Not so much now, especially with the android Samsung in particular to a really good job. IPhones can still struggle a bit with sunsets and sunrises where you might have in an over saturation of that stunning orange sunset, and the camera will be thrown off by that by that excessive, ironic and try and color correct it and ed blue toe because that's the opposite. Color is blue, so it'll actually make it look a bit washed out and you lose those colors now a nice phones , recognized scenes and recognize. Hey, this looks like a sunset, and it will actually try and keep that those colors. They're not without introducing Blue, because that's what it's trying to do is try to balance the colors that make sense. All right, so with this image, it's pretty good. Well, I'm pretty happy, but I'll use it is an example that tip on the paint. So gotta what balance? Okay, uh, go to adjust and you got temperature intense and temperature is basically goes between blue and yellow. And then teams will add that color cast as well. So let's go here to the extreme. So there's the yellow Is the blue Okay, a little bit yellow, right? We go to the team. You could say he was not introducing other cool, funky colors there. All right, so on the other option you have here is the neutral pickup. So the neutral picker is if you use that example of the blue plate with the white typhoon, put this color pick around of what? And accurately capture that watch. If you have been filing that, you don't have that. You look for some great in their bitumen on a road is a nice what they call a 20% growth. There's a rocks here that actually will work quite well. Green could work quite well as a reference point. Okay, sometimes not. Here. Let's go to the Great rock. Another great rock over there. Okay, Now I'm finding that. That's a bit too green. It is. Let's let some of the auto just does. Okay, Order. And that. Actually, where we had on the color picker, it's actually the order. Is them the same thing? You know, I'm gonna is gonna bring these back a little bit. Okay? In this one, we'll bring this back a little bit. And what for that doing that I do that quite consistently. Don't go the order. And then whatever the order is, I'll go on, have it on, and I find that that it's fairly accurate to my eye. And this is all a personal Tyson. You know, we're not went on professional photographers. He was just trying to improve our fire eyes and make them look better and start to understand the theories behind what ballots and that sort of thing. Hey, tickle net. Let's up in another image. Okay, so I've got this image here. Uh, we got the dark silhouettes, the dark heading up into the sunset, Quite in us. Silhouette image. The tip of the pencil. Gotta What balance? Now, this is an example of way you don't necessarily. You know, this is electronic. Correct the color, but you can actually introduce a new color. So you're not trying to make it look real, But you trying crowded new mood, and you're feeling so I'm gonna go to the right. Didn't make it warm. Okay, let's go to the extreme here, and then the team Go introduce that with a grain, but a bit of pink. Got any more? I go back to here. Yeah. Okay. So these air before and these are often totally different. Look, isn't it? So what about this is not just about correcting any the color image you can actually introduce a change, the whole look and feeling of an image as well. Some of them can be quite responsive and then look quite nice. This one here, it works quite well. Others not so much, especially if you've got people in there that go missing around too much because people like their skin to look like Diskin. So and he was like this, that it can look quite well. Another example here for the white balance. We all know these bathroom photos where the light is not quite right. Depending on the overhead gloves, you might have that warm life that is an example. Press the pencil Greta walk balance. Anyone have or our bank. Look at that. It's gone. There's that before and there's the options. That's another example of way the camera could be tricked by the logging. It looks. It looks, I say, halfway. Okay. Temperature would kind of how it would work, but it came in at 32 so I bring back a little bit, so it still looks natural. Still looks mobile. You don't want to, especially the real estate photography. You wanted to be a true representation of What's that? You can improve it, but it's still going on a camping. This lady with the images go to the auto fix. It looks fantastic, but then bring it back a little bit across the tick. Let's want balance. That's it. 15. When & How - Create Black & White Images: black and white has to be one of my favorite photographic Gianaris. You can truly transform and really elevate an ordinary image into something is really impactful, engaging and stunning. I mean, not all images, though, benefit from a black and white conversion. The best images of those that have lots of lines Texas and shape because you're taking out all the color, obviously, so you're not relying on color units. Images that have strong compositions have strong set up that sort of thing. So here's an example here of a snail on the left is the original. In the black and white conversion, you can see there that when you convert to black and while it's had some extensive evaluating, then they took me back 15 minutes. You can see there that with that anything of going in our highlight areas and docking areas , and it's really encapsulated the valuable, like they're really highlighted the shape and textures of snail. It's two totally different images, isn't it? It's amazing. And here's another image. This is from brought in and out in our community. On the left is the original, shooting down a laneway and on the right you can see there it's really made Those shapes in those lines just really pop in. Jump I at the screen and it almost looks up. Gotta gotta crack in a smashing my screen It's so vibrant and so punchy Got open up, Snap state. Now this is the example image I'm going to work on here. This is my son and this was a rainy day, whereas a clothes line and I saw this him staring at the window, and the benefit of mobile photography is I had my phone in my back pocket so I could just reach out and grab this shot when I was anything that I am struggled to come up with, capturing that moment, really expressing it. But we were converted to a black once is totally accidental in that sometimes the best editing I've been really into black and wife and I could create this image has been more than just the black and white conversion. A few extra steps, he said. We'll go through that. So I opened up to snap see the first thing I want to Dewey's crop. So go to the pencil crop. Another. Make this a square crop. Border Patrol I want to get rid of those lines there. Actually, I might change that. To say 74 Yeah, that's gonna be video we're trying to achieve. Here is place Mitchell's I The closest I on that intersecting line of the For the rule of thirds that will go with that. That's it. Blurry, isn't it? Because now that I've, there's low light conditions and I zoomed in a little bit with props. So we've lost the resolution. Black and white could be much more forgiving. Sometimes. If you've you got an image we just can't fix put loads of black and white just so what happens? So moving on, we've got that one. So now I'm going to go into black and what? Go straight away. That's neutral. That's just taken away. The car s. This is exactly the same as if I go into June in each go to saturation it. I removed all the color, so swap lift, um, removed all the car. It's on the exact same thing. So let's go back into black and white neutrals. That's the exact time fix. That's what it's done. They you have some presets here. Contrast brought Doc film and doctrines. Guy, if you remember in their previous lesson, curves basically each of these presets. That's what it stands. It's applied to different curves. Adjustment such increased the man of pure blacks at just that, the amount of pure white sand image. He increased the brightness called decreased and then headed Contrast. That's what all these processes guys just change the curves through. My go back to neutral because we're gonna flow that ourselves. You say he color filter. Now this is another preset Basically, where there was red, orange, yellow in the same little girl INGE manipulate that black and white conversion based on those existing colors, I don't really have much success with us again. I'm actually going to pick the pervs toe, so make sure go back to neutral adjust and you have some basic adjustments here. I prefer to go to tune image. Now it really sounds like I'm really not a fan of this black and white, but I am alright. Brightness. Yes, you can do a few things there. This is just to really start the ball right without having a do contrast. That's really it just makes it really fun, doesn't it? So bring that back to beat. Yeah, right. We know. Zoom into the Zacarias tonight, Chris, that grain. You see that? You got that little noise and speckled effect that could be really, really cool to painting on the on what you desire with the image on Web. Check that out. Take he had because I've got so many sharp lines before I go into the curves and start playing around with that $1. Sharpen this a bit more. So going to tonal contrast, you have details. As I mentioned earlier, I prefer to go to eternal contrast because you have much more control of a way. You apply the shopping the mid times higher toy until I turned. So we're gonna hear me turns. I'm going to zoom. Mean prank that rider before and after. Now what I'm looking for here is the details. In the Indy fly screen, there are those Lawrence, but also the lighting and how it's affecting the shape and the depth of Mitchell's faces. Wait to see there. You kind of lose a bit of the shape. There's much as I love the extra data you can see there is left. Cheekbone brings up the broadness. It's I will bring that back a little bit. Protect harlots. You should bring Noah back to have a little experiment here before after. Happy with it. So now Oh, going to details? Hey, Structure, shop me, Right Next. Go into pervs. If you remember, you get that history. Brantley is seeing the history Graham here that all the data files are on the left side and type is off to the rot because that's this is this is where the majority of the content is in the shadows of this image they went on down adjusted cleaners. That he stood grave is not alive. It doesn't change. Unfortunately, we're Do he pick up that black point? Drag that to the Roth? So I'm doing there is an increasing the man of the image that is pure black. Want to increase that a bit more? At what point? Something on the adjusting Billiton Look, it's it's increasing wides crazy. I think we'll leave that where it is. And let's drop a peanut and just see what happens when we just experiment his eyes a little bit. I think that is pretty good. No, don't Next they want to do these blue the edges silence blue, living on a elliptical the circle and then pinch and zoom to go around there. Bless strength. Yeah, with that. And then you have Devyn. Yet it's really doctor moving, yet is that before the original image and these are after. It's just it's just incredible challenge, isn't it? So it's gonna experiment a little bit more. He the selective dragged that's ever get in the right spot, just brought in that up a little bit. Just want to bring some of that shape, some of that face back again, too much with that. Okay, copy antique. I'm happy with that job done before, after so to quickly recap with black and white choosing image that has plenty of dynamic range. So plenty of darks and lights, and they don't wanna have an image that is full of mid tones because just you weren't captured. The range of light and that's what's so fascinating. Great red, black and white is it's all about the light. It is the light that bounced off the subject, nor the surrounding content. It's graphic decluttering is saying, is that you were saying there's got too much stuff in the background, the experiment with black and white and might actually bring the focus back on the main subject an image and has strong compositional. And the subject really stands out. So there's some great ideas of which, which would be just to commit to black and white, the process just black and white neutral. Experiment with the different presets, go to curves, then you going to stand eternal contrast and truly meet sharpening all that sort of thing. Another only can do. It's at grain. Afterwards, they go into the filter here grainy film, and in here you've got a few different options. You say there's some of them, actually add a little bit of a monitor, tired and a bit of extra color to it. That actually looks quite nice. That one there be washed out lots and lots of different presets. You know, I'm a fan of filters at the final stage of an immediate marches. Provide that little bit of a polish a little bit of extra, and this one here actually looks pretty good. So there's there before and thereafter. So you haven't looked at the grainy feel just for that finishing touch 16. Stacks & Masking - Hidden Powerful Tool: we're gonna go in the stacks now. This is one of the heat and most powerful features of snap Safe. As you say now, in some of previous lessons and modules, there's lots of global adjustments out, whole image adjustments and a lot of local adjustments that a selective, precise, exact areas that you want to adjust with the selective tool brush that sort of think. But there's some features in so snaps the lock, the brunch filter or hedge tiaras. Couple others day that you might really like Look off, but they just apply to the whole image. So there is a way that you can actually use these stacks to selectively apply any anything tool and feature within snow sated just exactly where you want in the image status is a term that snaps, they're used. That's the same as layers. It is in the next lesson where I talk about double exposures, I'm gonna go Ryan to more. The lions sort of stacks. What you wanna show you in this lesson is basically had access stacks and how you can actually go through and see what you've been doing each step of the way through urinating process So I've got this image here. So this is an afternoon yourself, a hope that button down there's the before. So you see there quite a dramatic improvement from that snapshot that I captured to that image. You know what I like to have these images? Not so much older leaves in the truth, The whole it was all about the birds, the ducks there. That was the feature and interesting story. These three ducks on their holiday, they just followed each other everywhere. It was just extraordinary. Three different types of duck just had this incredible bond. And so that's why that was the hero of the image. And that's how it wired this way, heading off into the sunset. It was just perfect timing. And as you see, I didn't have the time to actually set up the photos is the snap shop. But from that snapshot, my credit, the scene which, which was what I actually saw the camera couldn't capture it like this Greste a little bit , just a little bit of extra. Really. So where do we get the stacks? It is at the top there. You've got to that I call next the information button that looks like two tiles higher Stepped on top of each other with an arrow like before because this expected history. So a tap on that and you can see he you've got a button they're called View it so there, as you can see here every time off, working through this healing process, I've pressed the take button, the tick check mark. You could see that it saved each step along the way. So I've got the original first thing I did was corrected The perspective to make it look like all shooting at familia from a lower angle cropped hasty up, junior. Each day tiles sharp me curves just to change the black point selective and say their selective off turning their enough smooth the war with their selective tools true image And then finally just cropped it again a little bit. The beauty that stacks is that each one of these steps were not tep on it. You can say they ah, trigger the next makes one up here because you say that perspective. You got two options that being and adjust. So got another one. He hated here where you can see the bean a paintbrush, which are going to end in the adjuster. Let's go into this one first so you can go in here and go adjust and tipo Not just that. You can see exactly what I did as I was editing this one. Now the benefit of that is this what we call nondestructive editing? Bit of dragon? Don't worry about if basically what it means is you can go back instead of at the end of you. Anything process. You then go back in the cowl. Actually just want to do a little bit more hdr filter, and I want to do this to it instead. So all that anything that you did before head up to that point. It's kind of overriding that it's it's destroying all that work, and it's destroying pixels that have already been in Justin and deleted and adding more one you can see. It just ends up being a shop of all these different things you've done. The benefit is to go back to that step. We did hatch me out and adjust it there, and then it will affect everything after that, instead of going in there at the end that I hope that makes sense showing you practically here. So the filter strength of food on Tain. Okay, so we'll go up to a ridiculous man just for the benefit of illustrating this press. The teak. We have the end. It's dramatically changed the whole image. So get back today. Just bring back the team near enough. We're going to take direct to the end. That's where we were before moving on. Next one there is the paintbrush. The pipe brush is the real strength of this tool where you can go in and actually point with your finger exactly where you want that. So let's go back a step going there and let's crank it up again, can what we're looking for. He, uh all I kept cranking it up fix the leaves around the sun. It has adverse effect. The rest of it looks grungy and fight and just crazy. What we can do with the paintbrush is there with their finger. We go in there and swap exactly where we want that affect. Take place. City and of all your 100 that makes 100% of that adjustment is revealing itself. You see that the other icon down the bottom. There's that mask. It was looking high. So this shows you exactly what's going on there when you we need swap forever is showing exactly a guy. Now I want o blend these a little bit, so it just looks like off just stuck that bit on there. So what I do is decrease it. 75% go over the edge now is the mask tool. Hell, that mask icon 50% over the edge, 25%. And then I would go from 100% to 75 50 25%. That's kind of trend. Transitioning from that hate really strong high hdr to back to the original again. So for press the teak, Okay, back to step is the original. These days of state from the crop hp escape, you can see there that is just affecting around the sun. When, how cool is that instead of the whole amount? Actually, uh, is one of those tools is really great for it. Badly under exposed dark image. Well, you just can't see what's going on in the shadows. You can actually bring some of the details back, and sometimes it can have adverse effects in the shadows and make them look really blotchy and awful. So you can go in there and use that high HD out just exactly what you want when you want to recover the data and some of those dark Kerry's without revealing all of them in the areas where it doesn't look so good. But that was great, doesn't it? Now I have overdone a little bit for the benefit of these examples will get back in there, and I want to adjust nor bring that back. So this is what I love meditating. You're going there. You look at it and move to a strong you can bring her back. So instead of going in there and painting overall, decreasing the contrast or something like that to undo what you did, he just got back there and undo it. So there's no crops stage hdr. You can see that's a little bit more subtle and delicate, isn't it? Moving home and these are in results, so that leaves a really standing at a little bit more. I don't think that's fantastic. Tool. I love the fact that at any stage in go in there and go OK? Because, ah, let's go in there and just that little bit more. Bring that black point down. That's the end result. You know what? That didn't work. Let's go in there and being that step, it's knowing they're being it. Get rid of it and that's Aaron Result. 17. Avoid Extra Masking - Copy & Invert: using this image owner show you a quick way that you can shop in the trade blue, the sky and the water in a really nice quick way. Using the masking tool. You can go in there and copy the mask that you selected for the trick in verse that mask some other, then select everything outside of the tree. Be easier if I show you wanted. Let's go into the pencil day tiles and that's assuming that and crank this up and I'm going to go toe xs he if illustration and said that you can actually see the difference in that point doing a satchel and you look ago, Willie on this on a little fine are not saying anything, so let's just let's just go crazy with it, all right? So you could see there. It's really sharpen the treat before after, but it's also sharpened the sky. You never, ever wanna shop in the sky. You once guide to look natural. It's always smooth. It doesn't have little little dots where this comes from is this was a J pic file type, has compression and has that effect where you get things blotchy nous happening so We don't want to emphasize that even further by sharpening it. There are otherwise of shopping, just that tree, and that's the selective tool. You can go in there and you have one. They structure and you can shop it. But forgot to drop all those Peens. It's not gonna be evenly sharpened, so this is the best way of sharpening it. And then we can go in there and say, Just the tree. So let's do that Tick Temple. The stacks view in its date, Ours and the Paintbrush. This is gonna be a little tricky once I have the mosque on. Okay, now it could be playing this in double the speed and then have some fainting music over the top. Take me long. Let's just get it done. This is really handy if you have something like a flower, something like that way, it's getting really intricate on day town. In the notes of this lesson, you'll say that I have an example of that. Perhaps one touche one nice and quick and easy here, where my due to shop in these ages, these pits and you'll find other different ways of speeding things up. Now I like when I'm going through an age. I just went through there nice and slow that you'll find if you go down there on edge nice and slow, you might your finger my wobble or something like that. Especially if you're using a little phone. What I do is I get nice and quick. And then I got a nice a quick and slowly moved towards the edge shape. Grateful that. Okay, back up to 100 with my finger. You nice and fast and it's slowly move across, the quicker you go. The straight at your line is as you're going straight to your lines now in a little bit over there. So get back to zero. And let's just undo that easy whenever there's text. You want that to be really clean, because that's the sort of thing people go to have a focus because I kind of from rain. Merry Christmas too long. So that's going. There were the masking spectral we can see very guy, and the rest of it they make a leading focus. When we got blue, the sky in the water, this other is to the the p, the trees, the because that's all gonna be blurred as well, No. Later that day, because I want to show you how we fix that. So let's go into the tick. You see that original And we've really shopping that heavenly shopping, the trade. Now they're actor here. So if I wanted to blow the sky details and I go negative news structure, obviously there has gone. Rubs it. Yeah, really excessive again. But that's fine. I just want to really highlight and shy. Doesn't have to look natural, Okay? And it's added that blue to the tree. So we've lost all that sharpness. So the way to get around there is we cannot mask the true way I'm gonna show you. This is the long way. So we were doing it day tiles asking, and you got around here and you will do all this. Ah, my name is really small. So you know what's in fast? Do you mean Okay. And its sister, You're doubling our party during the process. Tow us. So this guy get rid of that. Get rid of that one, okay. Especially original. We've gone right back to where we applied the shopping to just the tree. What? I wanna do up the top corner? Say how we have to three dots. That's what you call a menu overflow, like on three dots in order. Copy. So I'm doing some copying data files. One thing problem with snap cities that copies everything. So if you got 10 steps that little copy all 10 of them, you can't to select one. So you've gone in there and you've cropped true name age. So you selective tool that I think it'll copy all of them. So if you know you're going be doing something like this in this scenario, you will do it first, which would have done here. So we've got details. You have a copy. Allow stacks tap on that icon again and insert it So you say they put in there twice. You may have also noticed original There tells on the tree copy and paste of it, so it's actually doubled. The amount now that's looking really funky is if it's super shopping and crazy. What I want to do, I want to go in there, go to the last, and that's what we had. And then you'll see it. I condemn the bottom. The invert inverted and it flips it soon instead of the trade being where we want to apply the edit that's now doing the rest of it. Press the tick. Now you'll notice it's added all that detail now to the sky, that sort of thing. But that's okay. We're going to adjust, and now is where we go and we're changing those settings. So now we go in there and do the structure. Press the tick looking great. No rail, right? Original data files of the trade blowed the sky. You say they were blood the the pier I mentioned before. So that's going there. So the mosque you get me and we're at zero because we're trying to reveal all the data's. Before we smoothed everything I said they were going in here. That's perfect. That's the tick Heckle is that it's just also so by copying and inserting were just have that ability to either double what we've done or insert the mask and such social a ton of time 18. Create Your Own Graduated Filter : This is the photo I want to use. This is a photo damage along waterfront Christmas time that bring out this big tree. Big light display pulls in a huge crowd fridge along. Tourism, which is fantastic. We want to do here is dark in the sky and slowly transition through to what you say he now if I used to meet, it will dark in the whole thing and I can't with this one. I can't go in there and just reduce the highlights that you might normally do with the scar . Because this guy here is not bright. It's actually pretty reasonably balanced with the foreground. That's one thing, but I want to make it a little bit darker just to show you what have this works. Some of their independence Hall and I got to name each just broadness. Bring it right back and say that it's affected everything. Press the teak. Now we're going to the stacks. I come and hit view. It's June image and then we put the paintbrush for no one. There's when we get to the air finger painting the fund big. You have an option here. You see, Master on the bottom side, the mask turning off the blue is activated. That will show you a red over light exactly where you're swapping. So let's go in there 100%. Now, I want to show you something really quickly here. What do you mean? Okay, see that tonight? Shop line shop H Tamara zooming out that age. It's softer and softer and softer. They see their dramatic difference between zooming and nice and type. So this is great for when you're doing their selective l It's if we wanted to say, for example, I want to just darken this side of the tree. Then we will do that block that I and you say turning off the mosque. You can say exactly what's happening on here. If that's a bit too aggressive, just zoom out. Soumaya, do it that way. You know, there's other tools that probably do a better job than this. You can see exactly where presuming it was a north shop. It I love it. It's just fantastically why this works. So go back to Zeer here, it of all this. See how zoom wrought out of the image and you could just swipe, swipe, swipe in it all that. Okay, So 100% over the top 75. Next line. That's that way. 75 50 25. So turn off the mask. Zoom in a little bit. Is there before his air after just affecting the top It tip of the mask. You can see we've got there. Nice transition from the top to the bottom. 19. Double Exposure Image - Snapseed: double exposure on snaps it. We're gonna go through it. It's not fantastic. There are better. Perhaps the next one. I'm going to show you these Photoshopped mix. Don't be scared by Photoshopped that would find her shop adobes. Photo shopped at a nap by them. You don't need to have a creative clad. You can set up a free account and use it. So we're gonna go through a ferry, that one, Because snap says a little bit. This is why there is. It is actually a little bit difficult with Snap State two years. So I'm gonna talk, talk you through that and show you how I do it. And then I'm gonna go through adobe. And then in the bonus videos, there'll be another one they're using superimposed, which is just in IOS. So that's why it's over there at the end of the course. Because this is all four IOS and android uses. Let's get into it. This image here is I took the airport. Malcolm. Now this have already done the double exposure on a Do it again. All right, so on the day, this is an example of on the day. This is what the weather looked like This is what the water looked like. It was choppy, that sort of thing. But the final I took was using camera placement at course. Life Shana care. This is on iPhone five, and that was the image that captured on the day. What I wanna do now is only put an image on top of that which was an edited in image. All right, so going to the pencil and I go to double exposure, then the bottom there, I have open image and I'm gonna select the image. So but the fault, the images gone transparency, transparency, capacity of 50%. So that's what the image looks like. Or outside to 69 which fits the screen. And a very effective 50% or a little bit Well, just so I can actually moving around some pinching and zooming with two fingers to make a bigger and smaller. And while I have my two fingers on the screen, then I can move it around with two fingers. That's why I'm doing pinching and drew me and then moving around. And while you're there, you can actually twist it around as well. Okay, so I'm gonna go in there and try buyer. I just go in there and fueled. Ready? Okay, I think that's pretty. 80 class close enough or outside? Let go. So now I'm going to go to transparency. 100% person a tick. Looking at that, it's not working, is it? It's not on a deal, but this is sitting on top of that image. So I got the original image and this one is sitting on top because I've resized and made a smaller. It's just add It'll that black around this and l a night to go into the stacks. I can top. I can't near looks like to 12 On top of it, I have another video goes into a lot more data. We're gonna step on that view in its okay. And then, while down there, double exposure, tap on that and go to the paintbrush said they were gonna mask it for our. So there's two ways you can do it right now we can swap over and we can get in there like that. Okay, so that's that's a chief the joke. Step on the mask. We could say all the raid of where we've done that. And then the bottom that you could say 100 double explosion, 100. So that means 100% of where we've swapped through his comb through. All right, if I make it zero, that effectively is looking arises snapping around the ages here. Pigeon zoo getting closer so that it's a north shop itch. Okay, well, that's going too far of the H, I got back up to 100 is to investigate zero along the bottom. Okay, across the top. So that guy, that's a change. The result we wanted Also, there's up, you know, image as our shot on the day. What it looks like there's an edited image superimposed on top, Click on the tick to accept that back up the top and disappearance back to where we can Then go in there and and and do other fun stuff with it. So, the other way I will show you to do. This is all a press. The X there were back here. This is where we're going to paint it. Okay, so the other way of doing this is to actually invert inverted. So now we can see this is the image that we want to go over the top, but we wanted now reveal all the rest of it. So now if I swipe making a end of zero so revealing 0% of this image that while it's sitting on top 100% of it reveals, shows what's there. If we get rid of it, you can see what's underneath. That makes sense. So 0% means it's gone. And you just said that image underneath. So that's what we're doing there swapping. Now we can pinch in zoo, make that smaller in the meeting this guy over a lot quicker, okay? And then get back. Dean and I got on my mosque. That's just an alternative is you can either swap to reveal the image on top or you can invert it, and you can swap to reveal the original image that my accent do their bit confusing. When you ever fly around with it'll, it'll make more sense. And as I mentioned before, you can do 100% you do 50%. So if you want a feather feather, the two images, uh, some images were better than others. Yes, so that's double exposure. In snaps, they now I'm going to show you how to do this in in adobe Photoshopped meats 20. Blend Multiple Images - Adobe Mix App: weapon up this image in adobe mix. Now you don't need to have a credit cloud Adobe Credit clad. To use this app you can download for free. And once you set up a free adobe account, you can use about w fellowship mix Fix on the I always express light room. You can use all of them. You can't. So the benefit of herring creative cloud is you get full features and you have online stories that you could transfer photos in between H mobile device and your desktop PC Mac, all that sort of thing with a lot of rooms. There are benefits to creative class for this. We're going to use the free version. So basically, I've have my original image here, and I want to put on top of inside the screen here were put on top of the edited photo that I took of this thing. Okay, say press the temp kept the plus Annie an image. Don't be intimidated by the terminology he layers and that sort of thing. I'm gonna walk you through and talking through it as we go. All right, so we've selected our image and resize now canceled that we don't want to resize of we. We don't want to make the original underneath different size to fit the one on top. So they canceled that. So basically, what I wanna do is drag the corner and resource these, and then with my finger is pick up. How my finger on the middle of the second image and just dragging around a drag. It's at the top left corner is pretty much in the right spot and then dragged that bottom corner again where I think it will look nice that that's sort of the image. Just tap somewhere else and you can see there is putting on tough, nice and simple. You can tell it's a lot easier than double exposure and snaps, wasn't it? I mean, that is just so difficult for an app that so ingenuity of the double exposure. It's not fantastic here. It works quite well. I get now are sharing these beat. Let's get into the more complicated stuff. Once you're in there, there's a couple of options. I'm not tap on just the second layer they tap on that you see here in the bottom here you have just temple of Artemis. You gotta just you can adjust that part of the image. The top liar. So we've got the original Pharaoh that we took the 2nd 1 We can adjust that and they have forgotten tap underneath. And we selecting the bottom wire, we can tap on a just and I can adjust that. So we're gonna just both images so they look similar. Exposure color that something so real example. Let's have a look. Adjust. Step on that. And you've got these ones here. Temperature exposure contrast highlights, shadows, all that sort of stuff. Clarity. So I'm gonna go into here and I'm not a guy. Expires up another might be a little bit Dr Okay, Contrast. Reduce the contrast a little bit. Press the tick. Okay? And now they're looking a little bit more similar. So I'm looking at it thinking, Okay, the top on the I'm gonna have a little bit more sharpness to it because looking a bit it's soft there, isn't it? So it tap on the lower on the side there and that selects it. Gotta adjust. I'm gonna go to clarity. First, the clarity beat more. Okay. Plus the teak. And there it is. Looks very testy. Happy with that? One more thing I want to show you. It's probably not gonna be really relevant for this image, but I want to really show you. So tip on that image again. The top one. Where says mixed lap. Tap it again. And you have here opacity. So that basically about to fall that added 100% of the 2nd 1 on top, all of it. So go back to 50%. Now, with this image, you can see here not just tap on these. Just move this across. Okay? So if you have a look, what was underneath on top of that screen, what was underneath is not perfectly aligned with my editor of the image. Okay, so my edited image I'm gonna re crop David and changed it a little bit. Changed the composition by re cropping, so you can see they will not reduce the capacity. They're not perfectly aligned. Okay, but sound images might be and, um, I want only add some of it. Not all of it. In this example. I want to add all of it. Okay, next one. Here. We have a blend mode. All right, So I tap on that. But if all it does normal says normal, normal plane these, please. Just slapping it on top. You have all these different ones, doc, and multiply light on screen. And so one start with dark in, I'll just stick with dark in. So basically, you have the image underneath. Image on top. Normal was slept. All of it on there. Okay, dark in water. Will do is it just looks at the top image. But any of these just looked at the top immediately goes okay, dark in just the dark parts of this image they're going to go through on top of the one underneath. Not the broad areas, just the dark areas. They only got an to Latin and screen that sort of thing. It will only let the broad areas of this image comes through. All right, So the benefits to that is that you might want to go in there and change just the sky. You might have just the Scot coming through a novel. The full ground over Doc years. There's a number of different races. I don't really use those that much. I can. What I do use is normal. Another one I use is color. What I love about color is that even though, yes, this image, I've re cropped it, that sort of thing. But I love the colors that I got there. I love that the CPI. Look, I love that they might be saturation. What have really emphasizing saturated the colors in here. I love the safe you look, but the composition I want the one that's underneath. Yeah, they with me, Like I might be easier flash. I tip on Qala. And you can say he, uh that this is back to the original faux underneath original composition of the original photo. Yeah, what is done? It's got the original fighter. You got the one on top. And the color of this one has gone through the day a week. So it's separating the color from the textures, the lines, the data files, all that sort of thing that shapes and just the color. So if you think off the sepia that we have here the c p a time, that's all that's going through. So if I flip between the two, you might actually be able to see it, and I understand remorse. That's color get back to normal. Uh, so that's the edited image that are four on top. Go to color. And it's just gonna be the color of the end of the image. The guys on top Celltech on that in the UK So some of the benefits of that is you might be blending two images together. And when you blended to woven together, then what's coming really brought Really, Doc, And it just can really muck up the image and look really Fike and silly. Not just something to be mindful love, because it is actually really cool. You might come across that scenario playing around with double expressions and get all my tones, all my broadness shadows. They're all going all funky on me. I just want the saturation of these things colors to come through a net it. So it's good one to be aware of the rest of them. Yeah, I mean, luminosity could be really good. I mean, it looks a bit funky, he because they're not perfectly like, But luminosity is probably the other one that I used the rest of them. Yeah, people take them, use them that much. I probably should, but I don't really find useful, so that's fair shot meets. Don't be intimidated by you Can't break it. Just have a play around with it and you've got the undo button. It's anything you do. You just go in there and under under under, under under, and that's pretty much anybody happy just pressed the shape on it and you conserve it to the camera. 21. Blend Multiple Images - Superimpose App: Now this is superimposes, an IOS app. But this is by far my favorite app for blending two images together because it has different, more advanced masking features where you can go around the outside of something that you want to superimpose or drag and drop on top of another. And it hasn't great features there for independently changing and editing each part of it to try and match them together. It's great at Let's Walk Through It now that some of the is this icon. So ah, it's just a matter of playing around with it and getting more familiar with it. I do like actually, they have words underneath the icons to make a living more into it, even easy to use. But bear with me, I'll walk you through it there. First of all, you need a background image, which is the original image, and then you need a foreground image to go on top of it. All right, you can add extra extra, extra extra. Once you're done with that, you need to squash it down into one lap and then you get another squash it down so it doesn't get too complicated. Look, you can with photo shop in some of those others. So top left corner there, we've got the importing, seeking important photo. I'm gonna go through to this image. All right, So once I'm happy with that, you got a couple option t constraints so you can actually crop this right now. So that's gonna do that, actually. So, Crop, this will make it maybe like that. Let's stick with that. All right? We're gonna prop it there. You just said we could feel this even a little bit more. Fill it up. All right. So they were happy with that tape on that Someone we've been poured in the background. We can import another one. They will replace it. So that imported foreground. Now back in their phoners, it's gonna pick a random photo here. Okay, So much you've got your finally press choose and we bring it in. Bring on top now. Never were here. You can say here on the right hand side there, we've got the FJ program dimensions and the background dimension. So it shows you the dimensions of the fire down the bottom. Here we had transformed. So this is where you can transform stretch fleet all that sort of thing, That image on top. So that's the leave from there. Just bring the leafing on top of this one. That's why I'm gonna try and blend into it. Mosque is Where are they? Around the outside of the leaf and just selected leave to come through filter. That's the fun Be. That's where I can go in, select just the life, adjust it so like, just the background and adjust it. So first of all, we're gonna going to transform. All right, first thing, there's a couple of options here. Top right corner there. You've got the button. That'll actually fit it to the background in case it will expand it and make it match the one underneath which has done here. If I slide the capacity on the right side there, you can see that both fourth rate. So it's automatically, uh, stretched it, keeping the same aspect and put it on top, and then you've got here next to it where it'll place it dead smack bang in the centre. All right. Next one alone. He's where you can flip it. So we're gonna flip it around, flip it that way. Okay? We'll flip it that way back to the original like that, the one next to it is way. We'll go flatten it all them together so you don't do that just yet. And the before and under and radio buttons They all right, you'll notice on the right side. Here, we've got a padlock padlock these where if you leave that padlock unlocked, you can stretch inst on. It's just a stretch. It that's all they do. All these funky stuff with it locked means it'll lock it in someone. We stretch it. It will keep the same aspect, right? Magnet just said this. That's the itching. Now you could drag it toe to a corner and are locking on that corner. It's quite handy. Okay? We don't need that moment. Have to read all that. Let's go with that. All right, Now we're gonna mask or are. So now you've got the pain day, that bunch of faults we can go in there and do this sort of thing and your finger painting with love it or are. So as we get closer, settle good. So handy as closure. It's more difficult, doesn't it? So we have fingers pinching zoo we have a couple of options here we have underneath that we have what they call a smart brush. I love it. This is the best feature it picks up on. The contrast ING areas said, Swapped over the gray and educate to the leaf. Because it's contracting is not Griet brown. It will actually stop swapping over those areas so I can swap over the middle of it and it will make me a life. Okay, I'm do. That's not foolproof, as you can see, but it's a great way as ever to get close. Okay, zoom in. As you get close. It'll intelligently go. Hey, listen, real contrast. He you going longer, great and all of a sudden online. Brown, Oregon There's a chance that you don't want me to go over that stretch off into the brown, so it is a smart brush. It's not perfect. We tap on it again and you can change the used start car and you got here brush strength size, that sort of thing, that I'm gonna go back to the normal brush, getting a bit closer. Use the smart rush, getting around those edges. It's doing a pretty good job that did a great job along the way and where it's gone over used the razor. We can get back in there, we can rise it, bring back, bring back that day tile that it just took out there shouldn't have. Okay, Pensions. Ooh, Peaches do just like snaps there. The other abs zoo, maybe you think that's still on their dragging? Two fingers of ground. What? Back to the effect of the brush. Smart brush. No, I'm not that I spent too long finessing this and making a perfect This is just in example, So with the with the paintbrush topless that took that is taking time. You have a soft brush. The now is where it'll actually going. There do soften ages and failure it nicely. They haven't got a real contrast. You could see it doesn't quite look writes a tap on it again brush smoothness and say they were feathering the edges. So instead of a sharp bang so the on or off you can feather in a little bit. That's what we're gonna do their feather with soft brush. So I'm going closer to the age. Just keep swapping over in the more I swap over it. You know, just gradually reduce it and looks much more natural, doesn't it? Okay, that's looking better. Okay, Have you with that? Now, let's go back to no more figure. It's whatever a soft brush every day. Yeah, that took a little bit of time, didn't it? But I'm trying, Teoh. This one of those things are a little bit obsessing about this safe perfectionist if you haven't picked up for pretty. All right, so now I'm happy with that, Actually, let's just check. I use now. That's normal. Okay, so now I'm happy with that. It's not in the right position, is it? So I go back to transform. I can now drag that life and put it exactly where I want. And pigeons. Ooh, I can make a bigger or smaller. So for my resume pinching, zoom with the rest of the image. Just step outside of the image. Took the mosque. Sorry. And they're going. They kept it transform like that. Where we're gonna put it. Put it out there. That's battle. Do alright. Sedan that life doesn't look right, doesn't it? Looks brought. It looks like it's being pasted on top of it. So Now I go to feel top, okay? And I have you background and four grants. All of the four gram, and they'll go up the top here. I've got settings the coke will to tap on that. And now I can go in there and change. The exposure of that heckle is that broadness contrast had some contrast. Causes lots of contrast in their balls. So I do want to give their contrast. And then you have the top you have changing the sliders of the colors. You got some different features, the hair, different effects. And then you've got curves, which is really cool. So now is where I've been going there and do some other foot cool, funky stuff. I could blend a little bit more changed the the close of the colors red, green and blue And I think that's pretty good. I'm pretty happy with that. All right, Xenia. Teflon transform. Move it a little bit shop. It's a little bit in focus because all around is gonna focus and ever grab factor, filter the cock. Well, you could say there was one blue, so I could blur it. Yeah, Okay. That so many gimmicky apse where you could do this sort of thing. But how many off them? Well, actually, it will be too much. How many of them will actually let you do this sort of thing where you can, actually, even going blue stuff? It's really cool. It is very mean, as I do that. Yeah, well, that gets out of control really quickly, doesn't it? Just to Tony every day. Anyway, this is just an example. Doesn't have to be perfect, but that just shows you how easy it is to do this sort of thing. Okay, Back man scenario. The rest of it filter the coke will. And I think I've back in here. And Aiken brought and the rest of the image contrast. Yeah. Awesome. Fantastic. So that when you don't press the home button ain't shit. Now, first thing when you shared, see, how is there. It's not quite 100%. So I just lied that across the 100% the jet pick quality. And then there's the 70 of photos, or you can share it struggling to other APs or or your for social media cancer. Let's now safe to the camera a little bit conflict had it. But I tell you what. This double exposure once you start getting into this at these addictive said Hope playing may. 22. Apply & View The Steps In A Style / Look: What I love about their filters is you can go in there to the stacks and you can see exactly what happened every every step of the way that they've applies. We have the original. There's the after, but what I show you here is the white balance. So that's going to adjust. First of all, you can see here they've increased the temperature significantly to introduce that orange golden hour look, but they don't apply to the whole up. So what they've done here is we're going to the masking and you can see there when we turn on the mask left them exactly what we did with this guy. They've done it to the bottom. So this is great for images down the bitch. We wanna have a nice golden look to the sand, their morning glow in the same. So that's why they reply. Adjust the volume. There. You can say exactly what they've done. Press the tick next one. They've applied details, curves and shooting image at the end. So what's with that one? Let's go in there, get rid of all those and do another filter. So what? It does another one. Let's go to structure to see what? That one that a few steps the title contrast Kirsten Black from what original curves left, I want it to sound like the black. What? So it's a plot? The doc thing. You see the minus 20 broadness plus 20 contrast. Did it mask any of it of the order of No, it didn't mask it. It just apply that to the whole thing. So he calls that you can actually see how they filters of washing on the image. Oregon. That's really cool. One of the hidden and most powerful features off snaps a. 23. Create & Save Your Own Style / Look: looks and filters. They're fantastic, aren't they? Have no. I've gone through a lot of basic intermediate, more advanced editing before going back to the fields and show you how to quickly one step through a lot of things. They grow for ending, of finishing tight orbit of inspiration, to come up with different images that you wouldn't have thought to edit it that way. So they do have their place. This is where it really excels in snaps. It is that you can actually create your own so you can go in and record your editing process. Saved that and then going apply. That is a filter general. Apply those exact same steps again, which is really super handy. This is an image that I've captured here. This is the before you say there is quite blueberries, not sharp. There's no details there, and that's the after It is excessive shopping, and that's OK, because I'm gonna show you each step of the way. So we're interview. It's is the original June to eternal contrast. I maxed out the mid time, so after I did that, I went in the plight of Second Life eternal contrast. You can see in here. That's what I've applied. Next step after the title contrast, he's the day tiles to shop me and, as I mentioned earlier in the course structure, kept that reasonably low and it bump it up the shopping, which is every single little dot in pixel in the image. All right, so that's what I've created. There isn't what I wanna have a filter is. So if I have an image that eyes really blurry, I would have like a C S. I in a TV show where they just have to have auto enhance and shopping. But the image I wanted to create something like that. So I have an image with superb flurry, throw this filter and then I'll know whether the image of recoverable and I can actually do something with it, going to the looks and styles like on the one that looks like a rainbow tip on that, and then when you swipe up, you can actually say there's a plus signed on the bottom, that's where temp on that and you can see he saved this look have already saved it. But let's save it again. So we went shopping save a day press okay, and you could see it down The bottom there sharpened so you can go in there at any time and I have some others in he life. Sharpton, shopping, heavy shopping, Cilla wit. Others sustained one. I have one here for vintage look. So let's apply the vintage look and you see there it's just bank straight away. So it's tickle net. Is it before image? These are after. So this is actually two filters. This is the sharpening filter, and then the vintage look. And within two steps bank, it looks pretty cool. I'm really actually pretty place with that. Then you go in there and actually find you and do a little bit more. Remember, you can also go in there and look at each step of the way so you could see they were replied. First was that last one was just the curves. I wouldn't go in there adjust. I can go in there and adjusting the seat to create that vintage. Look, I've actually play around with each of the channels I have there. You go in there and mask exactly. We want where we want to apply that. So it might just wanna have the background that has that look. Basically, it's a cool tool. Saves time. One thing to be aware off, though, When you save a look style filter, it's a global adjustments. That's a whole image adjustment, Meghan. You imagine if you go in and you do a selective edit and you brushing something, so if we wanted to really bring out their road, we're going there and swap over and ads and day tiles darkened areas that sort of think works really well on this image. And then we bring up another image of a country scape with a fence going through the threat of saying You think that that's gonna really cool with some extra shopping. You go in there and where we've swapped every with the rope. It will apply that in the exact same location of that image, say the local selective specific area. Adjustments just won't work with the filter because it works on this image, not the next when you're applying to. So keep in mind when you're saving the steps that need to be holding me to adjustments 24. Share Your Style / Look Using A QR Code: looks and styles of fantastic and snap see creating a filter, saying it Speed up your workflow, that sort of thing. But you can share them out other people the way that you share your workflow with other people in snaps these que arcos a quick response codes there, those funky looking back oats Now the way we access is once you finish your editing. So this is when we did before where I had excessive sharpening. And then I put a vill vin teach filter on their off credit myself near to share this with someone Who is she going to that stacks icon down the bottom? There, you'll say Q R code tape on that, And this is where you can create what or you can scan one. So we've got to create one, and that's it. That's house credit says create a preview. A little preview of the image. Seven. Do you remember what it waas? And that's the barker shit tapped tech to share, And then you can. You can even screen capture these so you can screen, capture and share it that way or share it. Send it to another phone. Lots of different ways we're gonna cancel that. What I want to do now is only going Teoh skin. Once I step on that again QR code underneath you that Harding a phone. So with code skin bank, there is a floor. The cure. Look, yes, and there we go. It's applied. It's nice and simple and easy. It's really cool. It's a great way of doing it. We've really got people sharing some of the comments, which is fantastic. Safely. Just go in there and scan those ones. 25. Colour Grading - Colour Channels In Curves: color grading, Juro Towing split, toning. Try Tony this many different terms for this tour that we're going to explore. Nowadays, we start to really get creative with color casting, deliberately adjusting colors. In Model four, we covered white balance, which is where you go in correct color casts introduced by the camera. That could be, they said, in the same you have excessive of one particular Collins of the camera got introduced, another color to offset. That will explain that will be later. We also covered in module for curves, and that's the tour gonna be using. So I did promise. In close, we come back to the color channels, and that's what we're gonna play with now. All right, so he's in the photo of being machinery on the train tracks. You can see that the diagonal line you've got the normal one. Argie Bay Padinha have two different colors. Now. You can see here are going to read it, and you can tell that now, going back to the curves where explained the dots. There's Peens by adjusting. Midway is the midway is the mid tones up the top ist highlights. Then the bottom is the shadows have you jumping ahead to this one. Place got back to the curves because that will actually help make sense of the whole of this with these colors. Yet algae based ago Red, green, blue Now that says and sound like much doesn't three colors, but basically those three colors combined can introduce lots of other colors. So you can see here in this graphic riff is also teal or sire. Grain is also magenta or purple, and in blue becomes yellow. Now I'm gonna show you how this works. You know, practical sense of this image. So let's start with the red channels. A tap on channel red right now. Mitt turns boost that up, and you can see that it's introducing. It's not enhancing existing red. It's introducing. Read to the image. So if you converted this to a black and white and then you went in, played with these color channels will be introducing colors that taken creates sit here and lots of different cool mono tonal adjustments. Which one color adjustment to the whole image on progressing and I mean time so you can see there, then increases decreases, and that is when I decrease. That's actually changing color. So that's introducing red that is introducing the teal color. So that's where you get the teal color, a life that many times just increased a little bit. Next I have green and we see which I have gone down the bottom here, similar to the way you adjust black point on Dwight, point them back to the curves again. You can do that with color. So here, rod in, in the darkest of rains on can changing those dark grains into a magenta Or people calling say they rides and they exist alright and introducing their green. So I'm gonna bring that back that I want a purple magenta tinged to this Now another's words magenta and all that sort of thing or a little bit different what you might be used to Basically it's purple. Next one is the blue And here I've gone straight to the highlights. That's before introducing more highlights the look of the sky, the bright areas that's the highlights, you say they're just looking just purely at this guy. Okay, you do that. What we bring the damn were actually introducing the yellow looking at that. That graphic. So there we go introducing yellow into the bright areas so he's there before in there after this is more than just Joe True duo Tony, you're going and you're deliberately adjust the colors of the shadows and you'll just just the colors of the highlights that's to address mints were making story adjustments. He this is Try Tony. Ah, writer, you go a little really itty bitty, extremely literally excessive. But that's OK. I just want to show you each of them. And then you have Lew Minutes and I'll just introduce a bit of an S curve. There illuminates acts independent of any of those colors so you can imagine. But playing around with these three channels well, you got rid green blue, And it's also a sigh in a Thiel magenta, purple and yellow C plus six powers +56 colors there and then any combination as you could make more concepts like dealing with primary colors, secondary collars and that sort of the to bring it back to promise. Go now. And I you can say here in these graphic any combination of threes. The red, green blue you can create yellow are in pink. There's lots of different cars are looking at the orange. It's a lot of rate and a little bit of green to my yellow. It's a lot of red and a lot of, uh, green and no blues have don't touch the blue. So if you just increase the safety, want to increase the highlight of the evening to make it beautiful yellow tinge to just the Hollis they decrease. A lot of you are green and a lot of red to produce the yellow make sense. I have it does living on. We're gonna get a little bit complicated now right there with me. It's well worth it. Split Tony, We've touched on a little bit. I want to go to the more advanced now and autocratic cinematic look. Now you're recognizing cinemas movies like Are Our Men? So many The Matrix. Perfect example. They will have teal. Remember teal that is the blue green color in the shadows and then in the highlights, I'll have yellow so the skin times will be very orange and yellow and then in the shadows will have that kind of bluey green, grungy tinge to it. So that's what we're gonna creating that image, he So here's a photo of a boat for going to the curves and you can see here off. This is how have played with it. Let's go to adjust and I'll explain it to you now remember their graphic red and teal. So if you increase the red, it becomes right. If you decrease the rate it becomes that teal that greeny blue now to create the increase, the writ in the shadows This is what we're doing to decrease it. Have a look. We're introducing that to you. Coloring the shadows. All right, Next one, The highlights. We want to introduce more yellow. So I remember the graphic blue increases the blue or decreases the blue becomes yellow. So we're gonna go to the highlights of the Blue Channel in decrease that. And then we got theirs as seen in many look before and after. That's why doing it The other one is this is darkening the shadows and darkening the highlights. So if you could imagine we wanted to introduce more yellow into the highlights. We've reduced that heavenly that bright areas we've reduced it, which some saying to might look OK like this one looks ok. Others you might want actually keep their original highlights. But brightness Ellis zero there, looking at another graphic we can see the yellow is increasing red and green, so increasing the highlights will make them brighter. So we want to introduce yellow by increasing instead of decreasing. So let's go into the ritual in Chris. Let's go into the Green Channel and increase, and you can see that we've done the same thing. Better highlights on every atlas. It is there before, and there's are after us the cinematic, the teal in the shadows, yellow and the highlights. You increase the highlights or decrease the highlights and create yellow to it from ways reducing the blue channel. Introducing yellow or increasing the red and green together. Same amount will also introduce extra yellow in the holot. 26. HDR Scape Filter: hates the escape is the future we're gonna cover now, supposedly going to the pencil and Tep on Hates fiasco and comes out straight away. You've got multiple different presets. He nature people fine and strong, and each of them is set by the fall on 50 strength. So let's go to just go through the nature people fine and then strong. That's not so bad, this one, quite often myself. My personal taste with most images is I go for people and I have a hovering around the 10 mark. So if we get it before and after holding this down, see, that's the before, and that's the after. It's basically at a little bit of a little bit of a punch to the image, a little bit of extra vibrance to it. If you go too much, you'll see here. Let's that before, and that's the after, and it basically loses that depth to the photo. In my opinion that before you can see the shadows, the show's place out of pivotal parting images to correct that depth and that shape and texture and that sort of thing when you use high HD, I guess it does this is not lovely things to the colors making move over. But you can see there. It's it's a trade off. Okay, If Teflon adjust, you've got the filter strength they can increase, decrease that sort of thing. And then you got your brightness, which is brining the whole image and saturation, which makes the colors even more punchy. So I like it. This is one of those things that I used towards the end of my anywhere. I just want just that little bit more of a punchy nous to the image Libya vibrance. But personally, I would rather go into light room mobile app. They've got a vibrant slider in there that doesn't much better drop. And I have found that once you start ailing and you're doing lots of multiple things within snap, see the hedge fiasco can attribute degradation to the image as well. In particular, see that in the skies you don't work where doctrines that brought scores. But let's have a look at another image just quickly. So that's that image is having looking another one, as is often the case with these editing features and tools. To me, images can act very differently now, this with this image here because the exposure of the sky and the water in the foreground of fairly similar the hasty escape is going to do some very different things. So this is the nature of that practice, right up to 100. Now, I never do this typically with my father's, but this is a photo that I found. It actually works. Okay, alright. Style, nature, people fi strong, pretty strong. A tap on the anywhere on the screen to get rid of that bottom section is the before there's the after just really dramatic make a massive difference to the look of to fit the image. Get back to people, which is what I like before and after a brutal a date are back in the cloud. It's kind of some of that hes in the bottom of the screen and then bring it back to the ground. That 50% style try a couple of different styles that strong can look quite. That looks quite nice, doesn't it? 50% before and after. So they're two very different images. Go back to that plate of the pancakes on the plate. The hasty escape didn't really work because there was a dark background. What plate? There's too much contrast. There's some things I have to much dynamic range already that it has really changed. Totally changes, look and feel of the image. This one here because the thing exposure is similar throughout the whole photo. When you stop playing with it, it applies into the whole image. Changes the look of the feel of the whole image, as one had. That makes sense. You can see he just this one here. It just really transforms it. And it doesn't go really grungy, so it looks quite nice. So have you find that one handy and we'll go into the next feature. 27. Grunge Filter - Create A Monochrome Effect: the ground feel that this is one that I usually two different ways. One is that if this is an image like this one, that was really low quality, and I just wanted to try and have a play with it and see if I can recover and do something fun and unique with it. The other way. Is that what I call dig, plunging the grand field where I'll actually remove all the textures and that sort of the and use it just to try and change the the color of it So I could make TOC peer, for example? So let's have a play with it. Tip of the pencil. OK, and I go to grunge. What city? Well, it's pretty full on tip on texture and got all these different presets here. Okay, temple those on there and then we got a shuffle and shuffle will actually go through all these different varieties. Different variations that you can achieve yourself or what you can do is you go find one as a bit of a starting point. So let's just settle on this one. Tap on a just and he can see the style has got the style number, brightness, contrast, saturation and the strength of that texture that we reply through Margo can that textures of it full on bring some of that bag broadness brushing it a little bit So people recoverable to see what's going on. In contrast, if that saturation might bring that back, Okay, this is this week and then go either side of swap. So you've got all the way up to the star and you left or right? Just change color slightly. Okay, so I like that. That's pretty cool, isn't it? So yeah, here we have. We dig grunge. It is. We gotta adjust brightness. Bring that back to zero contrast period of that textures, getting all the text is and they get back up to the style here. And this is where we can get through slowly swap out, finger through on the screen. And he could change it so that we can end up with a green and blue, a silver look, a gold look, A safety Look speaking in close to that and you might just discover one day care or wow, that's creates that mood, that kind of feeling that we want to have any Which city gets close to a superior? That's pretty good. So, yeah, let tell you D grunge, a grand fielder. 28. Easy Six-Step Photo Editing Process: my six step federally process. We're gonna go through that now. Many you snaps A. But you can apply this this workflow system process when you want to call it in most photo waiting EPS and basically consists off straightening the image, cropping the image, tuning it. So we're gonna be applying some exposure, eternal color adjustments. Then we dio day tiles, which is where we sharpen it and then add some blow and within the blur factor and hasn't been yet fetches. That's really seven steps put their six features that we go through in the six tools that we go through in snaps a. So first of all, amusing this image. This was an image that I captured during an in person workshop. We went outside for a practical exercise, and I was showing the 10 days there, but getting there lower, just create a whole new perspective to capture and instantly becomes more interesting regardless of what the content is. And this was just the shot that I just help the phone down Snap didn't compose. It didn't do anything and you know, it's like when you're traveling you Sometimes you don't have the luxury of time to really correctly compose the shopping, that sort of thing. And this is where everything's gonna work really well. But you can go back and you can recompose, and that's what you do. He first of all, we're gonna straighten it. So I will talk down to the pencil and then we have a couple of options. Here is Well, take. Now I'll show you rotate What happens? This is typical of most photo editors. When you rotate it, say the shaded areas, it's effectively going to crop that out. It is okay, that's this image. It might not be the only true. But if you take a federal building architectural, you're traveling a monument or the interior of your restaurant, then it's not ideal. So I'll show you another option here, right next to it in the second round. His perspective in here you got a few options I'm going to construct here is right tight. Same deal swept. Lifting what? You see what's happening here? It's adding those black areas. Now we wait, let go of these. You see what happens. It's actually filled those black areas in, which is really cool. What it's done is it is cut back to where it waas, so I was there. If you look at the top left corner, have a look at those two delegates there, and oh, I didn't quite do at that time. There we go. It's brought in the third Lake. What is done is, as as it's filling in the black. It's looked inside the age and going out there. There's a foot day. I'm gonna copy that. I'm gonna paste it into that corner. It's not ideal here, but that's why I would do this step post. That's this step before we crop. Okay, so it wouldn't crop those things that if we need to. But sometimes that if you look down the bottom, you can hardly tell it all. There's no you know, nothing there to correct. It's actually done a really good job or somebody stretching when you strain an image. We're looking for a reference point, something that should be straight, because if there's something in there that's not straight out, I and subconsciously will go something not quite right. Yeah, you've seen those tilted images that are really extremely tilted. That adds energy. That's fantastic. But I'm talking about photos that at Quite writes. I'm looking at the polls in the background on the right age day. We've got a gutter at the top of that. Gonna actually lines up perfectly with that line. So we're gonna actually go with that. Okay, press the tick. Okay, First, that done next is cropping. Yeah, this is this'd is this comeback and breaking image? It really can, because it's I have the privilege of judging a presenting it at local camera clubs. And the first thing also, he's cropping the image. It's it's paramount. Now when we're cropping it, if you have a look, here we go, the pencil and we go to cross. Okay, I'm just gonna go with six day night because that's how I view my photos. And he's dragged cornering. Okay, so I'm just doing a random on there. You see, if I move it up into their that tells one story, if I move it over over the here totally different image, isn't it? So when you're cropping, you can you can change the whole look, the whole field, everything with an image you can't just by way, Ukrop within the image can make it can make and break. So what I do is when I many things I got back to the intention of the image, that motivation, what was trying to achieve out of the fire? What? What motivated me to pull the the phone app. So here it wasn't the legs. It was the low angle that I was trying to chase. And And this is a bit of a story here that we can capture, like for just moved that around two there. Because this is a seasonal photo. It is Dr Leaves on the ground. It's not quite winter because you've got a spot of sunlight there. So I quite like the story there with this one. All right, now, sometimes that might not be quite right vertically. My one add a little bit more so than you just tap on the format. Choose a different aspect. Could be 43 whatever you like. And then, as I said, tracker corner and move it around. Next thing I do is I look at the edges and I look at the balance. So if I move this over here So I was trying crop up there. Notice on the left H David ridges for one of a better term or Colin ridges. It's really off balance. There's really heavily weighted over there. It's not quite right. So one of balance this image a little bit more. All right, put it back there. Nothing we've got here is the greets. The rule of laundromat I've seen on my website. I have, ah, block an article that I got a lot more data explaining it, but essentially, it's It's a guideline to help you position the main subject. So in this case, it's made Leaf the big leaf, and I've got off center both vertically and horizontally by putting it under one of those four intersecting points. That's what I've done there. And it's actually the way the leaf is pointing. It's pointing into the image, which is quite nice. Now. I wanna have that large in there. You see, there had a lives kind of half cut off. Any forgot that way, it had something beyond the lot. So take some of the visual tension, that mystery a why you don't leave the person. And I wish I knew what was beyond that. Now sometimes that's a great thing. You wanna have that mystery and that curiosity for the viewer. But in this case, I think I think that looks what good will do that. All right. The next step with cropping is what I call Border Patrol. So around the edges and I look for things like in the top right corner of the moment. I've got that black black bit. All right, so now with that black, but I can drag this around a bit tow. Avoid that. But I like that top age. Another option is actually drag one of these bottom corners and do it that way. Okay, It's time we did. But I've got a tool. We're going to show you. Surely that will fix that up now, saying the top right top left corner should say, Say how that ridge is kind of end in the middle there. That's quite nice. An and symmetrical and results and all that sort of thing. So let's go with that precedent tick. Okay. The next option is the next step in the process is junior me. So I get back to the pencil. Now I gotta run up to the top left, have training each within here. This two different ways of access the features. One he's just tapping. Adjust, okay, and the other is to swap up and down, and we locked when I let go. It will set on this that brightness, and you say Top left Corner says brightness. So if I go to ambience, it's his a B it. Now I start on a Beyonce and what I was down south. Maybe it's well, the reason is that angle is a mixture of brightness contrast in saturation. So it makes sense to start their first because I can go into just all those things. And then I'm going to just name beings. We are now. It's too broad or now the culture to set around so but going to Indians first. Then you can go and find two in each of those three things above it, right? So, uh, swapping right? You can see the Indians comes out of it grungy going the other way. Eso you say the difference there. Different images will respond differently for his portrait off with family Firoz, where their skin tones ideas can come and really looking really blotchy and be ordinary. But our landscapes that can come in making them look more vivid and vibrant and then work quite well. So I'm gonna go to I think it looks nice there, but a whole general rule of thumb Is that where I think it looks nice. Always bring it back a little bit to put a rough figure on it would be between Tain 20% get back on. The reason for that is that, uh, it's so easy to over. Editor Fighter on the term is overcook it. You can cook the image and, you know, you've seen those images where you go. Oh, my God. It's so ended it and fake. So I like my anus to look relatively normal and natural, so I got to where I think it looks nice and bring them back. Now, if you're, uh if the image is really important, the one that you're anything that I would even come back the next day and continue waiting , so have a proper break for an hour. Or come back the next day if you came. So we're just gonna go today back to broaden this net? Brought in is Broughton's Everything in the image. Every part of it, the dock areas, broad airs and it could make it look a bit flat, too, if you got to brought somebody, get back to a little bit. Yeah, about they Contrast. Contrast twenties wants to a little bit difficult to explain and understand. But in a nutshell, contrast is basically the difference between two things. That is so. If you can imagine a black place of paper, white piece of paper and they're quite different now to increase that difference that you increase the contrast, you would make the black more black and the white more white. So then their differences more. He's even more. If you wanted to reduce that difference and have a low contrast image, you would make the black mawr towards gray, so you reduce the black and make it great. And the what. You would turn that into a gray or dark and that become a great So then you end up with a gray and a grade sort of a black black in a white wine that make sense. So basically you're increasing or decreasing the difference. Now this will snap said it'll increasing decrease the difference in both tones and colors. There are some upset that even the built in photo editor in the iPhone and has a color contrast. I'll just do the colors, which works really well. So I'm gonna add a little bit of contrast, because contrast add some depth to the images. Well, makes it look a bit more three dimensional. Okay, so forget the other way. See, they had gone great, and it's a bit flat, so I like to add a little bit. Okay. I think that was good. Next one is saturation. This is all about the colors. This is about making the colors more vibrant. I forgot the strength that's extreme, go the other way and actually turns a needle. Grice Scott. Now, I don't recommend doing that to turn your image into a grass. Kyle. There's another tool within snap. See, black and white doesn't even better job. So it could be great today. Saturate and mute the colors in an image which some images can look quite nice for a dramatic look, but I'm gonna have a little bit of color and bring it back a bit. All right. Next. Actually. Welcome back, toe toe ambience. And we just have a bit of a plan with that. See whether we? Yeah, I think we'll leave it there. All right. Highlights now, highlights is the brightest part of the image. You say the top there. Okay. Pension, zoo. Fantastic. Freighter of snaps A a lot of photo editing options out there at options. The highlights can only go. Plus, you can only increase them. And you can't do prison. Where is this one? You can decrease them, which is fantastic for landscape photos or outdoor photos where you want to bring some of the details back in the cloud. It works really well. Now, if we get too far back, you can see there is a bit of a high, low effect and the jagged look. So the jagged look is where you can see the blocks and yeah, doesn't look so sits before. Here we go too far. So locked to go to a bigger that threshold. Words just before you start to see it. So that looks good. Pinch and zoom to get back. Okay. Shadows. A lot of paper will increase the brightness of the shed. I said look more like what I will say. I go the other way. There isn't a go the other way is that I like toe correct that depths that the three dimensional look to it because the shadows at the texture, the shape, the depth to the image. So I got back a little bit about there next. This warmth and won't ease. It's the color of the light. So you we've all bought replacement globes for our lights. You have options. One is a cool white, and one is a warm light. Now the warm life offers that orange team similar to what you'll see in reflect reflected surfaces during the sunrise or sunset. In the luck when the sun's low and that produces that orange quite of a globe, the blur, the cool who say they're just looks awful Metheny go too far that way. It get out of control really quickly with this with this tool. So I go just a, um I got a little bit here, and raising these is because this is a seasonal image. So I want to have a bit of that warm timeto so I need, uh, press the tick. Okay. All right. The next that these data Also, this is a sharp me back to the pencil details, and it does a fantastic job in this app. You got two options. One is structure and one is sharp. Me, for starters, sharpening sharpening will basically indiscriminately sharpen every single pixel within the image. So if you can imagine an old TV, we actually could visibly see the dots on the table there, all the pixels. So this will sharpen every single one of those doctors. You can imagine that structure well, basically, look for the contrast with the within the image. So the contrast in pixels contrast in dot and will increase the contrast in shopping. That contrast so it can look really grungy really quickly social A with this one. You see the top right, good before and actually hold that the analyst that before and there's the after. So it adds a lot of data. All that I can go really grand union, this image. It actually doesn't look too far ahead because, generally speaking, I don't like to go beyond beyond 20 which is about which is about there. This image. I think it looks quite good so soon mean whenever you're sharpening, great idea to zoom in to be able to see exactly what you're doing and then June back at a gate because otherwise you'll zoom. You'll sharpen it from what you see. And then if you if you printed to Sinai forever and I threw you go Oh, my gosh, Let's But then again, when you're when you're printing, you actually do want it to be a little bit over sharpened. So it's not bad idea. But if you're just the general rule zoo mean it so you can see the shopping happening, okay, Sets the structure shopping. And I'm looking at the leaf and looking at the little veins in the belief there. I think that looks gotten us this. This photo benefits really well. Wasim. Heavy sharp me somewhere. You've got the sky with clouds. Yeah, clouds with sharpening doesn't work so well, but light running the course I have some examples wash. I had minimized that that negative effect, I guess when you happy press the tick. Okay, nearly there. Two more steps. Next step is healing. I love this in my in person workshops blood people over this that there's always someone in here in the crowd. He goes, Oh my gosh, I can heal out. People have my father Rose got better at for that retouch available on IOS and Android. But this healing option we've seen snaps, it doesn't pretty good job. And I show which was do you mean and just basically swap over it and it will actually remove stuff just like that. So simple and easy. Uh, and why do we do this? It said, basically, it claims up the image and makes it more aesthetically placing. Now that top right corner. That pick that I was telling you about going, Maybe I just got rid of it, okay. And Billy inside of fatal life got that bit. That's kind of Yeah. All right. That looks, uh Let's undo it didn't quite work. Now you'll notice that I'm zooming in when I'm doing this. And the reason why I'm zooming in is that basically, when we're swapping, it's looking a the side and all around that red section and bit similar to that perspective rotation. It's selecting those areas or aware of those area. Let's start again, try to avoid jargon, its content away fuel. So it's aware of the content around it, and it's feeling it that makes it right, and sometimes it doesn't do a great job. So you just need Teoh from a different direction or pinch and zoom, getting there even closer. That's working. It's looking better. Yeah, that's better. Little bit blotchy, but better than what it waas okay, and I get obsessive about this. You see, professional photographers will spend the time to go in there and clean up the image you leave the big team that had context like that, the little seeds they had context of the image. But this distracting elements in there as well that you might want to get rid off. Now on there, that's distracting. So let's get rid of that. And then, when you're done, practically pressed Atik to accept those. Don't forget the teak and the last step is below. So we go to the pencil and we go to links. Blip, Okay, and but the fault it brings up the circle, the elliptical it's called great for if ice you move this blue dollar and put that on the someone's vice and it will blur the background, which is quite often many taking group photos or family fire is travel. Firas, you don't have the luxury of moving people around with that being annoying like I am is a photographer directing people around I very tolerant family. So basically that will blow the background, which is great. You can actually pinch and zoom. You can change what's changed or from a circle toe oval track. You can stretch that. You put your two fingers on there and turned around. They've got lots of options there. Another option is tapping elliptical and becomes linear. Okay, now I lock Lena. The reason why I locked Lini huh with the straight lines is because it's much more like a real camera. Works a real camera. This is called depth of field, so basically the subject will be in focus and the distance behind we have a focus. Any front will be out of focus as well. There was a lot of your drool lens smartphones that'll are officially blow the background, but that I don't blow the foreground, so there's still that quite look right. You know, there are some upset they're they're doing. It focuses one on IOS app so, but it's much easier in here because you can control. You can control the man of Blue. It'll show you now, so basically tip on a just you have the blood strength can. You can increase that as far as you want. Can I say happy with that there? Bring back a bit. Okay. Next, we have the transition. So that is basically the transition or the figuring between what in voters and other factors are going to be extremely just to shake. I want to bring that back. Okay. Happy with that? The next one here is vignette strengthened Vignette is where your doctor all lighten the corners, edges. So that's the extreme. Now, this used to be a vignette. Originated as a bit of a on issue with lenses. You would have that step darkening around the edges. But then it's become a bit of value and energy desirable within editing now. And the reason that is is because where we're taking the eye away from the edges and back into the to the middle pain. So, you know, I never do it. Never got That's just enough quite like that. So if we move that blue dot it will actually change. Changed a little bit. Yeah. Have you that some having with that? We're done. Okay. And you can change the style, which is basically being going there and change that that time the blur in the background. So that's another option. I don't personally, I don't play around with that one. I really see the bit of it. And having blurry hot shapes of the back of my TV just once with down with press stick today, look back on the home screen, hold before help the screen down. There's that before and there's air after quite an amazing difference isn't there before, which is just a happy snap snap shop. And then there is out now deliberate, intentional photo where we're telling a bit of a story now. So that took a little while. Dennis I person that share and you can actually save a copy or export a little bit different between the android and in the IOS. So basically, I'm just gonna export a copy and then I'll go straight through to my camera. Roll my phone. I was that man that took a little while because I was explaining it all the way through there. Let's open up another image and I got through it at this sort of place that I would normally go through us. Open one up. Okay, so he's a flower phoner. First nick pencil, and we're going to go into perspective. Two strikes in, and I'm gonna bring that branch a bit more of an angle there. Locked that. Okay, next one is crop click. How am I gonna crop this? Six day nine? I won't make it making even a far full. Here we go to get stem with no sound with the flare off off the off center. Happy with that? Okay. Next, these Troon image stretch the ambiance. We tried a one. A guy Rajan will talking. I think that why have still had some day tiling that broadness? Yeah, Happy that day. What a contrast saturation. Just a little bit. Not too much of the overdo it harlots. Bring those down. Shadows always bring the shadows there once. Not gonna touch that pepper with the colors, huh? Next step is details. So I'm gonna pinch Z. We're gonna get writing their clothes structure now. This is one where you don't want to go too far. This is the example of not going too far. Boost that soon back a bit. That's pretty good. Happy with that what he linked healing is I'm gonna get rid of these bits here. These aren't. These are a bit distracting, aren't they? Let's get rid of these bits, Okay? Not adding to it, not adding to it or us. Yeah. I think I might get rid of all this, too. Why not? What were they undo? Pinch and zoom. Getting them beat. More accurate. That's looking better That beat. You know that I i for you have to be that last one. You know that stuff? Next? I need to blur. So we got the blur. Okay. Circle on the ages of the flair and a factor, so we'll make sure we capture all that bottom ones. Okay. Bits were just quite quite there. And vignette would make that really dark. First take and then we go. That's not so quick, isn't it? So there's there before and there's thereafter. Quite a difference. You can see it doesn't matter what the images, whether it's a landscape of flour, travel, photo, family photo. Um, it's the same process applies to all of them. I want you start practicing this in it, and you know, there's six steps off the top of your head. It's just so quick and easy Now. The next level is where you use some of these other tools we cover further in the course, like it's selective tool. Fantastic. Ongoing. The last which is really taking to the next level, is really exciting. So they say So that s six steps. Do you quickly edit a fighter? 29. Photo Editing Example: Nature - Waterfall : he's name Jonah Show It was taken. Erskine Fall Stand on the lawn VICTORIA, Australia. Stunning location. And here is the original photo. Captured every iPhone 10. I had a polarizing filter, the Missy polarizing filter that consumer, my website, and that actually reduced the clay on the rocks, said the wet rocks. And actually, you could say the date outside didn't have to sun reflecting off the light reflected often blowing at those highlight where you lose all the details. It's away. There on a slow shutter camp was the app that I use and that produced that the silky smooth water left that recording for about 10 seconds. That was all right, and there's thereafter, very shy. How did this turn of the stacks and I walk you through each of the steps of the original perspective? This was where I got down may look like I went down a bit of a lower angle crop I kept it is a 43 because I wanted to have. This is an image that for a backdrop for my computer and also my my iPad because I just I love had a great time down there with my wife great day. This is a fire that I want to have their all the time. So normally I cropped images of the 69 to display on the TV, and I scrolled on my first. Really, This one I knew I want to keep it is a 43 Next thing I did was training each. What's going to this adjust? You can say I've increased the brightness contrast saturation reduced the ambiance. It's gonna have a look at the ambulance and be in the ambulance, and you say that if I increase it, it's a bit more vibrant and all that sort of thing. But I want to go the other way and actually bring out Doctor the Shadows and Michael look of people. Dramatic is while with the negative and the shadows again of going there and reduce the shadows because I wanted to have more debt. But introducing the shadows in high life holiday but a except variety and really increasing the drama and then dipped in the shadows, you could see there that adds a lot more shapes, that there's a before and after press the teak. Next thing I did was tonal contrast. This is where I go in there and start actually increase the details in certain areas. And here I've concentrated on the highlight of just the bride. Areas of the water is the before and the after. So even though I love the silky smooth I like toe have sharp ages around the silky smooth. So give me an example. Let's have a look at all They said the skinning verticals there is there before and after. So I just wanted to make those pop a little bit, and I'm going there and eternal contrast again. This time I'm doing it to other areas. So this is heart. Owing me turns light ends near the reason for this fucker back to here. But on the mask you can see there I've increased the tonal contrast of just the highlights . And then I've got a master and exactly where I wanted to put it. So going there, just there's broad areas where I've got that shape that I want to bring back. So that's why I did just the one step in terror contrast. Highlights kept it to just that because I wanted Teoh Master B. And then I went back into eternal contrast. And this time I've applied it to the whole lot of the whole image. That makes sense. So we're going to there and I do the masking. You can see that I've now increased that tunnel contrast to a lot more than just the water . All right, curves here. You can say I have gone into the Green Channel and I'm increased the green in the midterms , which is because there's lots of green here. I wanted to make their Louis more punchy, not saturate. Atticus saturation actually increases the vibrancy, and it can very quickly become a little bit overcooked on a little bit over time. So I used the curves there just to bring in more green. So this in areas in the image where that leaves work, ring that were yellow, little bit dying off that sort of thing. This just brings a little bit more green life. Back into their at the college was the tick a mask, and you can see that I don't increase the great another one make the white water ring, so winning their mask where I increased the green to just the grain areas of the image. Otherwise I'll be introducing a green color cast of the whole lot. It's NoHo wanted. So that's why I went in there and mask that it that it next one. What balance Now this was just reducing the temperature a little bit. The reason why I have done that is that water looks a little bit more fresh if it's a little bit blue, making a limit cool. And so that's right did day. I just wanted to do the waters. That's why they Chrisley what balance and make it make a negative. And then I'm going in there, master and selected just the water to make it look more fresh. Next. 13 tiles First step waas blurring. So the opposite of increasing data is day crazy and each using introducing blows off, gone right up, 50 way back there, minus 61. You see, when I'm ask it, I've applauded. Adjust that for grants to turn off the mosque. There's the before, and there's after so the slow shutter can acted a really good job of smoothing the water, but I want to make it really smooth. So I got in there and smooth the right officer is the before and is that after just makes it look a bit more aesthetically pleasing, doesn't it? In the mass spec on you can say I've done that. Does that look look funny at sitting out of the river water? That or a tick? Next one. This is where I go in and apply day tiles. Teoh a lot more of the area's heavy structure and shopping, and I'm asking, You can say again, they're just applied to the to the lock in the faux cracks over the four grand to popular Amimour. Little bit Sharpness day and they're rocks around the water. I really wanted to really increase the sharpness and the details, the texture in that rock to make that really stand out. It's one additive in you can see here. Okay, so just a little bit not too crazy Brush. This was a little bit of saturation. I just went into the lock in the vertical up, and I just wanted to is the first time I've actually had a fair amount of saturation and limited to just that look. So here I will go to that. No, I can't go in day saturate. Other areas have been making really standard. But do you want to go crazy? It wanted to keep it similar to the others. But just make a pop just that little bit. And lastly, the healing tool. So, you see, I gotta brush that I got a healing and see the areas for switch between the two where I've made adjustment. Biggest area is over. Here is a couple of logs and things like that that I've got rid off tweaks. They actually introduced a little bit of leading lines that out of the image just know what I wanted. And then over on the right side here, I had some leaves, just a little bit excessive, Too many lace. I just want to get rid of those. So, yeah, has that is that before quote too many changes? That is the after personal preference with all edit things differently. Remember, some people would go, Why didn't you? Below the edge is the gun, all that sort of thing. I really make that center really pop, and that's fine. You can do that. Lots of different ways of doing it. But that's my step by step. Process are no way through that quickly. But I don't want you to sit here for often. They're watching me as I go through a fillets. Yeah, that's pretty cool free. Happy with that? 30. Photo Editing Example: Travel / Beach: a full in all further for this example this another landscape. But it's more of a landscape of, say, scape architecture. It's a few things all combined in one here because we've got the buildings on the water. This was a family holiday several years ago. Gold Coast, Queens, Late capture and iPhone. Six. So really old iPhone. And I just wanted to show you that you just don't throw out images because our anything improves the apse. Improved techniques, processes that sort of thing so you can always recover potentially off to recover and improve some of those old photos. This one here is a great memory for me, going out early morning for for a walk with the family, and this is the image that I've captured will have created from this original, says the original. There's the after quite a difference, and you can see there in the building. Let's have a look original. Is that a tiles and crooked building? This is the after so introduced a lot of data ask. It's not perfect. You can see hero in price. We still have a lot of those effects there, so it's what I'm not planning on treating this, not planning on blowing and album putting on the world, that sort of thing. But it's just a great great enhancement, and no one uses a tool to show how we threw us. Let's go to the original perspective. Now, this perspective I used the free form you see that have just did that is the original is that after now, by using the free form, I can actually drag the corners inch realigned that building. So what? That top left corner by dragging it shrinking Ray sizing, living that building around. And then he could do the same with the foreshore with the shoreline trying to kick that horizon. If you can try and keep it straight, you can squeeze it, stretch it to all sorts of different things with it. That's right, it day original busy after now I know I've lost some of that imposing large building, but off straightened it. It looks. I think it looks much better. There's original Beasley, after, so this image was not so much about the big tall buildings. It's more about the beach. Early morning, the sky, that sort of thing. Another thing that I did here, the winning into scale, and I actually squashed it. So yes, using the free for I've gone is stressed, and I brought the building debt but also squashed it because I want this image to be a 69. So instead of a 43 I wanted to be 69 more of a a panoramic kind of look to us that in 1990 is a squashed image. The benefit of doing that is the original. You quite a lot of sky there. I wanted to have less guy and all. It's kind of compress it and have it. Maura, about the leaning line of the footprints going footpath. Ah, footprints. They are corporate laying into the image, and we're getting to that shortly. Just across. So this before there's the after freeform squashed it. Next thing cropped, so have prompted to a 16 9 have train image winning to their brightness. Contrast all that. So if the ambience of really cranked up the ambience that has introduced him out effects, So zooming is the before is the after it has brought in a little bit of blood. Itchiness to the image might be difficult for you to see if you're watching this on a little screen, but it has definitely introduce Ahmad. Effects. Will fix that up would be a liar. That's okay, But what I liked about this is that it brought out heaps of that color that it was there in the scene. But when the photo when the phone has captured a J pig file format, it's compressed the file and all the information and lost a lot of that detail, and this is actually brought some of that back. So it's actually increase that authenticity and revealed that authenticity of the original image that was lost. It was there that has brought it back in a much more vibrant wants to be do that wolves and a little bit of wants, which is a little bit of the orange. So bad, a little bit of the orange name. Okay, next one is healing. This is where I spent a little bit of time because I wanted to just have toast to lots of footprints. Wanted that to be the story. I wanted this to be a story about an early morning walk, and it's very hard to do that when you've got everyone there for her, so I wanted to have just the one sit. This took a little bit of time to go through it and spot here. Remember, with the healing going there, any jury, nice and tight, lots and close. And that's what I did here. I got rid of the people and I just left off left eyes, people in the background, a bottle, the others that is scared along the troll on their got rid of all of them. And then I went in and I cropped it again. Now the reason why I've corrupted again is realized those buildings on the edge day instead of healing that is that a little bit funny? So I just dropped a little bit. Just did a little bit of that Border Patrol. I mention White back in the staff, of course. Just actually just cut ties that I wanted to live a little bit of space around that building. Next, the internal contrast. This is where I start to really concentrate on the windows and all that data I'll in the building. So that's going to there and you can say that really cranked it up. It's affected this guy, but I was just concentrating on the building. So when you're doing this, just focus on those theories and because we're gonna mask it, we're gonna get rid of all the other stuff and just was selectively. So when you're increasing all these things and it's looking really funny and funky, just concentrate on there and this is before and the after saying, See, this really worked well, going to the masking and you could see that's exactly where I replied. It just the building. I know I can introduce Aiken, due date tiles and sharp me tonal contrast does a much better job, and then you go and do the final touches on that with using the day tiles and sharply All right. Next one details exactly. Well, indeed. What I want to show you here, though, is that instead of increasing day tiles, decreased guitars and introduced blur the reason why I did that. Let's have a look. It's the look of the sky, and I see how it's starting to really dig right, because we used a lot of ambiance and we've done a lot of editing to the so far the sky saying to really cough it, details and of smooth and blue that sky under the mosque. You can see exactly where I've smoothed it Now I've smoothed it 100% around the sky. And then when you get the end of the beach I just wanted to smooth a little bit. So over reduced it to 75 50 25% Mike says. But he wanted to smooth at the building cause I've gone all that trouble shopping it. But I wanted to smooth sky Next one what balance I wanted Teoh, decrease the temperature of the water. Make the water look a little bit more blue. So let's have a look at where I applaud that is the mosque e. Okay, you ready the mask? There's the before We want it. Looks a little bit brown. Doesn't a little bit limit brand a little bit is the before. Is that after? So I've just increased the blue, you know. I know I could have done that in in curves brush. This is where I went and you know how we've shop in the building but brightening using the dajun burn around the basket using the Dutch in Bern. I was not going and selectively just brought in the Breuder's the building. And then with these shadows in the building, I also decrease the shadows and dark in the show. So that's a little bit of depth. So let's have a look that is there before there's thereafter before and after. So we've added a bit of depth of a bit of shape to the buildings by brightening the areas where the sun is hitting it. Because the sun is up in the center, pointing towards the building so that side of the building is brought and up. And then around the back of the building off Doc and testicular feel shape, it's starting to sound. It'll be complicated, and I've gone to a lot of trouble here. It really isn't. It's so quick and simple next one selective. Okay, this is where I'm going into each of these and you can see here Saturation of de saturated the beach. They're over here. What did I do? This one, Sammy in a cetera, the page. And here the cetera advocates are copy and paste in each of those that there's ever four. And they're after because it's signed to get a little bit a little bit too much rating there and that sort of thing and find a pigeon zoom. I've left the area around the footsteps of left the color there, and I've kind of day saturated Sander around to sell your I ghost of the steps because of the steps, but also because that's a little bit saturated and a little bit more now. I could have just saturated then area, but the alternative is the D search. They saturate this railing years it but decreasing the saturation. It started to look really funky with arrange with reds and yellows, and it just didn't look real. Look much more natural today. Saturate the areas around, it said an original color was What's toe and the final touch. Better living yet is the before and after just a little bit of darkening around the edges. Just a little bit, Not too much. You see so many photos where they just kind of excessive it crazy, but I just just just a little bit there. Yes, that's pretty cool, isn't it? There's original, typical happy step typical smartphone with the wide angle lanes with the building start to have the diminishing leading lines and that sort of thing where that kind of looks like it's got a full live up. So I fix that you've been through going through each of them again, and that's a far limit. Very different, isn't it? 31. Photo Editing Example: Food Photo: this example is going to be a food photography. Now this is just a snapshot. It's nothing fancy. It's not set up with lights and all that sort of being. This was natural lighting. It was sidelining, which have been texture to the content of the ball. As you can say from the before image here it was really was just a statue, and that's what this course is all about. It's just trying to really make Europe your ordinary fire. I should really pop, but also understand when you're taking these photos, that photography intention. And that's when the motivation, when you're anything you need to understand the motivation. What motivated me to take this photo was the actual texture in the granola and fruit, and this ball was just what, really around would take this further. So what amenity? That's what I want to emphasize. So that's what before and is my, after still a little bit flat could use a little bit more sharpening, but let's scary through the process. Here's the original fisting Always do is crop it. So I cropped it and I cropped it for balance. I want this to be all about symmetry So I've corrupted there and you see the each of the four sides there, I've corrupted said. It's nice and symmetrical all the way around. Now I could have corrupted the further and that the whole circle of the boat. But I wanted to be all about the contents of the vault, not the ball right there having the whole bowl and it doesn't really add any value. All want people viewing his image to go beyond the ball in insiders. That's why I've cropped a little bit, a little bit closer. Literate Tartars, this terminology. Next thing he's now I've tested this would have posted this online off, tested some different angles, and I found that this was the most popular with people because all the white of the food is down the bottom and the mango puree in the topic because it's flat, doesn't look as heavy and look better and look more balanced at the top. But again is the personal preference. You have looking at this going well, I actually like to like that. So yes, that's why I'm going with it. Next one was what balance Now the what? Bones. I've just adjusted just a tiny little bit. So going to the It's just a little tweak. And the reason why 20 in a little bit was the chair putting in the left side deck wasn't quite white, so I got back. There's the before. There's the after any tiny little bit, isn't it's not much at all. This one junior meat is we're going to the mango pure right? Okay, before and after. And I wanted to bring yet some of the the shadows would bring out some up on making light out a bit more color in those shadows there because the bowl is actually casting a shadow from the direction of the lot. What I did go into June, you say that when I've edited the Chunichi ITT's ended the whole thing and then are gone in and Masters press detect the mosque of mass exactly where I wanted to apply it. Okay, said is the before there's the after by Maskey. You see the red overlay? They're quite heavy at the top There, where it was a lot of sugar. Okay, so we're backing to adjust. So when you're adjusting that you name it, you have covered this before. Just concentrate on the area that you're editing. And then what about the rest of it? Just try not to be distracted because we're gonna be masking and selecting exactly where their it guys. So what did he bump the shadows right up? But then when you bumped the shadows right up, then you Sometimes you need to increase the contrast. So let's go through the process here. I'm going zero always. So I double tap they that will tap on the word broadness ambience double tap in the wood ambience, shadows, double tap and highlights that will tap or us and is there before, only to adjust. First thing I do is the shadows boost up the shadows, okay to about there and ambience. That's a little bit just to bring some Qala and vibrancy backing to the okay, overall brightness making a little bit more. Okay, contrast. It's looking a bit milky and a bit big dry, so I was gonna add just a little bit of contrast. Not too much, because I might do that in the light of stage with title contrast that that's a much better job. But I'm just doing this just a little bit in he just to kind of balance it. All right? And harlots. Let's bring this highlights back. The reason why bring the highlights back is the brighter is where you got two bright spots . I want to reduce the distraction, So just bring that back a little bit. Preston teak and then the mask. And we replied that Moscow, I gotta do that again because we could say it before and the after. Okay, next one. Tonal contrast. This is where you start adding surreal texture backing today. So you see the green all with through the center. They train image, and then we've got there. So this is where probably they want to add some more data files, but I'm going to stick with that for now. Let's have a look at what I d just you see, they meet talents and light owns really cranked it up because this is actually the meat times is not the shadows. It's not the bright cheer. It's actually in between, which is what the mid tones is also really cranked. It Let's have a look now. I'm asked it on a massive just with the chronology, so there's no poor adding the main Europe era. We don't want to have lots of data tile in there. We actually do what I keep that Lubitz smooth and looking realistic with that and looking extremely date I'll or extremely the shopping. Really, we can get the other way and smooth, and we don't want to smooth the way we wanted to keep it the way it looks. So it's just concentrate on there. Prosthetic next one is selective. You can see here. All I did was I just wanted it just a little piece of the Kiwi for it to just pop. Give it some color, not the whole lot. I don't oversaturated and make it look silly and faker, just one of just a tiny little bit sore. But under their pension zoom, you can see there. That's where I've selected of selected it, right on the broadest part of the K Way. Fruit, I said, is just affecting the broadest area. Every car and it was saturation. Bumped it up to about 36. What brings practice? That will be it prosthetic. Next thing was the brush. Now the brush here is the finishing touches. What I might do is actually go back to the tonal contrast. It hit the back button. Now I'm doing unaided. This is going to apply the edit before that brush. So when I go into the pencil, I mentioned side is looking a lot quite a shopping and jumping off this great as much as I'd lost. Now going to adjust structure, zoom in a little bit, okay? Ending a little bit of structure they and then shopping this gun shop in every pixel. Remember, before and after, bring back just a little bit. Okay? Now I'm going to go into this, the stacks or allies view, and it's data's tip on the masking. And now is where I'm going to turn off. That, you know, is where I want to go in there and really select the areas that I just want to really pop. Okay. It is a strawberry. They all right through the center, for the most part, just might show I haven't gone over the ages and say there are many to the main girl a little bit. So go back to zero. Don't want I don't want that to be extra shop. Okay? And the inches there. Excellent. All right. Selective now is where the selective owing to the kiwi fruit. Remember the other brush the pressure. Only two things here. 1st 1 I went to exposure. You can see the mask be considerate did They're going too negative. And around the ball words. You got a bit of light reflection because the light is coming in. From what? The From the site. The opposite side. The inside of the ball is leapt up and you can say the texture in the vault. But I wanted to be about the bottle Doi. So I've docked in the boat. Now exposure is caught, uh, strong. So I needed a little bit there. Where are concentrated, though, is the dajun bird with the dodgy and bird. It's a little bit more subtle. You have much more control. You can just keep swapping over it to increase the intensity of either the Dodger LeBaron, which is the price in all the dark. And then here you see here what I did was I went into the shallows underneath the kiwi for so were their show nose off increased the shadows and justice here is just swapping with my finger, and it's some of the broader areas of going in and and credit that depth by making the primaries brought it a little contrast. But this while in actually shaping it. And I'm pretty exactly where I want to put it. Person tick. All right, so they is there before in there after what I want to do now. One Lost Inc is one is a little bit of healing because there's a couple of little things. And he the record of describing my attention up the top edge. They say There's like It's at the top there. It's not like that before how to go about this thing. All right? Healing it's going there. Okay, that's looking Vienna. Clean that up accident mind a little bit of extra bits that have spilled in there. I'm just making sure that none of it is really grabbing a ride like this one. Here, get rid of that one. You know, See what? I'm zooming right in there. We've got that a lot of artifacts going on here because this is a fine vital. After all, we're not gonna be printing this. It's not gonna be up on a wall. It's just gonna be a memory. It's gonna be social 1,000,000 year. It's gonna be the fighter. Well, boom eso. The reality is I'm not gonna be printing live size if you want to. They're definitely wise around it that you can shop in it and increase the resolution. But don't worry about that at the statue. Okay, This one here, it's good enough. Fantastic. So there we go. Quick snapshot. Nothing's nothing fancy. Nothing set up with stacks and pouring liquid and all that sort of thing. This is just a typical photo that you'll find yourself taking. Just enhance nice and quickly. 32. Photo Editing Example: Group Photo: this example is a group photo. Now you could be taking quick photo of your family friends. You could be a business where you take in front of the customers. This was a failure they captured at a presentation that did on smartphone photography. Fantastic audience. Biron was really engaged. Where? 60 people in the room. Now you can see here. The photo that I captured was just It was an ordinary phone. That's not fantastic on the edges. You got people moving. The reason is is that I captured this on iPhone success, and that was for the purpose of capturing on that device was the shot that you don't have to have the latest iPhone latest android, Google Pixel. The technology is fantastic and makes it so much easier. But I wanted to show them a photo of themselves that would be more engaged and interested. I want to show them, have the ending side of my ball photography, can elevate any of their existing photos and shorten that having a bit of intention behind the editing makes a massive difference. So that is the original. And that is the father of the wish I have we created I mean, it's just amazing isn't a difference. That is because I know the story on, uh, the intention. The intention was the catch capture people who were engaged inch anyone I was doing without all the distracting elements. All right, first thing I did waas perspective. This will change the angles of the walls and we have a look at the original Notice how the walls are going like that. Now it does that because it's a wide angle lens. And also because I didn't capture the image halfway between the floor and the ceiling of capture a slightly lower because it was actually a high ceiling. So the walls have gone like that. Yeah. This is one of those things, like polls objects within the scene that you know should be straight horizon Summer show rising always might try this trick. Walls. That's what If they're not quite straight, people will subconsciously look at that and think that themselves. It's not quite right. And it actually it looks like a smartphone fighter, doesn't it? Some by doing the perspective, it makes it so much easier, said is now, before and after their while did This was just using the free fall tour and integrating a corner and dragging around you see the hair. I'm changing the shape, okay? And also the tilt the tilt. By swapping up in Daniel, also changing those walls have to go to their That looks pretty straight. You let go the feel node. There's black watch and smart was used smart hasn't worked fantastic. Here you've got the gentleman on the fire left. His face looks a bit finding him. You've got extra brick walls and it hasn't worked bit quite often, depending on the context, the content in the image. It will actually do a really good job. This one that hasn't done so. But that's okay, So that's after I had apply with. Next thing I did was crawl cropping, as off mentioned is one of the biggest that if you had to learn one thing to really transform the images cropping because cropping really tells that story. I wanted to get rid off the kitchen on the left side. I want to get rid of the ceiling fan the exit, sign the ceiling even And what? But going in nice and tight and copying closer. I've made it all about the people in the room Heaven I big difference. The next one is to an image bomb was starting to really improve this Now with the tune image you can see there that are really brighten the image any interior photos really benefit from really brought in the image because we love natural light that were inside were not outside. So fire has always look a bit dull and flat by adding za brightness makes a big difference . Yeah, you can see here I've had a lot of brightness and have also decreased a lot of shadows. And I'll show you why you get the shadows zero that at, say, what happened to the image when I had all that brightness? It's actually broadened the whole image, not just the highlights from the time that it brought in the shadows. What happens is the image goes really flat and dull and by decreasing the shadows on bringing back a lot of that shape back into their anti. So that's why I was on that ambience. I had a corporate of ambience. See, it's like a turbo button. It's fantastic. It just adds so much more vibrancy. Does that little bit of degradation. You see a very if I going nice and tight. It's not so bad, actually, not so bad. But sometimes using an peons Kenbrell into really blotchy out of fixed doesn't look so great. Well, somebody a little bit. Saturation highlights Reduce the highlights a little bit because I want to get re symbolized. Brought areas next. These details because this is a low resolution camera adding day tiles, and I had quite a bit here. Structure 34. Shopping 38. That's pretty normal. 38 Britain Structure. I've had more than what I normally do it. Be careful with people sharpening faces because it can be a little bit unflattering. It's not doesn't look so great with this image. Exactly. It's actually been a case of a zoom in on one number. One person. Yeah, it's a pretty good job. All right, you see there by the mask. I've replied that shopping to the whole image, not just those main people. When I'm saying the main people, I'm talking about this lady on the centre, right with the blue top, the blue yet limited and the lady behind her with the blacktop in the wife here is kind of leaning to the side and trying to see around people. She looks, she looks just as engaged, and I just wanted those two people who really stand out. Okay, next one is selective. You see, here I've gone and dropped the peeing in all the bright areas. He's there before, and there's thereafter. So the walls that back the orange sign in the background and might more importantly, the floorboards in the in the bottom because there are like college have reflected the law , and it's quite broad. It's no big deal. It's just enough there that are going there and just dealt those officer your eyes stays on the people and not those areas. Next one did a little bit more selective because you got the only have a certain number of teens and I wanted to do a lot of work. So going in here and some of the white tops I've gone in there and there and the back that bright. But the what you call blow out the windows are going to reduce the brightness there. It's got a little bit gray. We're going higher burns. Peens. It's going a little bit great That's OK. That's all right. It doesn't matter. It doesn't need to be pure white, but it's just enough is tight tonight that stock in this out of the watch next portrait. This was really cool. Let's go in there. Is that before there's our after so it's actually picked up. The portrait mode has actually picked up quite a number of faces through that range there. And then you can do things in here. You've got presets there. I tries a combination to which is a combination of clarity, skins moving and face spotlights. So there's going there face for like and 50 C. It's moving. So even though I have sharpened it, when you do the skin smoothing, it detects the tonal range of skin and it and it does a really good job of just moving those areas and not the here and that sort of thing. Three. On here, the glasses are still no loss, and Shah ph the glasses. How hasn't smoothed everything, which is really, really cool like clarity. It just blows me away the way it does this. So here we can see, her eyes are hidden behind the friends of her glasses, yet with high clarity, we can really crank it up and actually did still detects the eyes. They with torture, to have people eyes everything, just like animals, pets, birds you need to get the I need the connection and people more more than ever. You need to get that clarity and seeing to their eyes. All right. Yeah. Go back to the storytelling in this image. I wanted to be just about those two people in the center. So I went in there, tip on the mosque, and you can say 100% of that effect upon on lighting the front. And then I put a little bit, uh, on the back here as well. All right. Next one, Lance blur again. It's all about them. So I put the elliptical wound on that I'm stretched its other covers them, and then I have a transition there, which is just pretty close, is not smoothed out between shop and add a focus of kept it family type. And I just want everyone else to be a little bit at. If I could sell your I go straight to them would have been to be Baratta. I want them to be sharper. Okay. My name is also that a little bit of vignette has gone in there as well. So the vignette is where he's at in the corners. I had about 11. I want for your back a little bit. It's still a little bit too strong. Yeah, that's better. OK, selective. You say they have gone once I've done this on your building, money got Okay. What's next? What's next? Works next. What's grabbing my eye? Doing a little bit of Border Patrol and I noticed here, hold the screen Hopes there are noticed here. It's going to adjust. Some of the areas need a little bit of work. This bird box in the background there is bright yellow. It's your eye, goes the lady in the front. And then that bird box was fighting for your attention on the other side of the lady with the white hair on it on an angle, which is when I love, but there's too much there. So I just went in there and just tell that off. And also the next day, the face Polat does a gradual with device that it doesn't do everything else are brought vice look like it was stuck on. Okay, so that's why I'm going in there and just brought end up with teammate. Okay? Last of all was healing so wise. The finishing touch can always make a mess of difference. What I did here was that a Border patrol went around the edges and I noticed on the corner there's a bag tough car off underneath the blue top lady. There's some stuff underneath the nope, ahead they're blended or going to get rid of the name. I wanted to just have a little privacy, dear. I know she doesn't mind, but I just wanted to take that out there. And so it's the healing, and I just noticed something else. I just want to get rid of this bit here. Even the water bottle beats. Yeah, right. I could do that for a long time. That's that's where I spend majority of my anything's going cleaning it up. I love that prices tick, so there we go. Let's go back. There's it is our before it's a snapshot of every day photo. No doubt you've got a lot of these photos, their prize, that operating your phone even with the new phone. You still have issues with walls and that sort of thing because of the way the phones have made the limitations. That is a far more intentional and storytelling image. I know it's confusing when we say a heart all about storytelling, but it's all about helping the viewer understand what you want them to say and make it really easy for them to say of the life we've done that with this image.
