So today, I’ve decided to experiment with using Photoshop-like image editing on the iPad and create a unique design. I decided to use Art Studio for iPad as my app of choice because I have worked with it before and am familiar with its features.
I know it offers layers to manipulate background and foreground images into a final dsign and has various useful tools like paint brush, pencil, eraser, wet paint brush, the eyedrop tool, transformation or selected objects or layers, and the like.
I used the app before to create this image and wanted to do something with it more, to clean it up essentially:
However, I added myself into the image of the iPad and came out with something a lot more avant-garde, a lot more interesting:
As you can see, Art Studio and its layer options can do pretty interesting things and make the iPad a great and cheap Photoshop on-the-go device. I used a combination of eraser and select-and-clear — with different stroke transparencies for erasing sections out of my originsl image — to clear the background out of my original image:
I was originally going to clear the whole image and just leave myself standing inside the iPad by resizing myself into the outline of an iPad. However, I liked the way a part pf the background remained and it added a weird artistic flair I went with. Then I added the writing in different test layers, or two layers each having test inserted.
Anyway, the cool thing about Art Studio is thst you can save images onto the app itself almost Photoshop-like with the pds format it used, but can also esport images into the iPad’s Camera roll. The export is as easy as some clicks from the camera roll.
I want to also add that I used an app, called Aviary, to edit my original image to the one I used because my original image taken of my was done in bad kighting with weak saturation. Aviary is a great solution for basic image clean up.
Anyway, check out Art Studio for iPad on the App Store for your image manipulation fix. I will definitely continue to use it as it has found a permanent home on my iPad. do have to say that the app takes a descent chuck of memory, so close it after use.
