Edit and Retouch Photos Quickly with Adobe Photoshop Fix.
We currently take a lot of iPhone shots, process and share them directly from our phone. For a long time, it was necessary to first move images to the desktop or laptop, crop and edit as desired, and then share them.
As the iPhone has become more powerful, the iOS Photos app natively lets you edit files that, until recently, could only be done on a laptop or desktop computer.
For example, I often take a picture, thinking about how to crop it to get my subject in the best place in the photo.
There are amazing apps for turning our photos into real works of art, including Prisma, Snapseed, Waterlogue, and more, which we will write about later. But for now, I would like to introduce an application that I often use for full featured photo editing on my iPhone and iPad: Adobe Photoshop Fix.
Adobe Photoshop Fix program
Download Adobe Photoshop Fix from the iPhone or iPad app store.
Open the app and sign in. You can use this app with or without an Adobe Creative account. The app will ask for permission to access your photos. Allow it, then click + in the upper right corner of the application window and you will see the camera folder with all the photos.
Select the photo you want to edit.
After the photo is loaded into the Photoshop Fix window, you can perform all of the editing operations available in the native Photos application, but not limited to. The most common use I use is the healing feature, which allows the user to remove distractions from the image. Try this:
Click on the “Healing” bandage icon.
Paint it like a paintbrush on top of what you want to delete. Note that you can change the brush width by painting up or down on the screen.
Now, comparing images 7 and 8, check the result. This sophisticated tool erases part of the image and replaces it, matching the background in the immediate vicinity.
Among the many other tools in this app’s photo arsenal, let me mention two more. These are 1) the Plastic menu and 2) the Defocus tool.
Plastic allows you to manipulate parts of an image so that they bloat, twist, or warp. See how I can make the ocean in the background of this image swell with the Twirl Tool.
Defocusing allows you to blur parts of the photo, like in the background of a portrait.
You can also add color to specific parts of the image and adjust shadows and highlights. Try this app and share your opinion with us. Enjoy!
