Learn how to import and image and make basic adjustments.
- [Instructor] Once you're signed in to Photoshop Mix, you can start your first project. And that begins over on the left-hand side of the screen where you can see the plus. If I tap there, I get to choose my first input image. I'm using something here that's on my iPad. I'm going to use this image from one of the national parks I recently visited in the U.S. But what I want to do is warm this up somewhat. So I'm going to tap the adjust icon down at the bottom of the screen.
And then I'm going to tap temperature. A slider appears, and if I move this to the left, I'll cool the image down. And if I move it to the right I'll warm the image up, so I don't want to go too far. I'm just going to push this just a little bit further than it is from the middle. I'm then going to go to the exposure. And I'm actually going to drop the exposure down a shade here just to make it a bit darker. I'm then going to make this slightly more contrasty. And then I'm going to add some clarity to that.
Once I'm happy with that I can hit the tick on the right-hand side of the screen. And my edits are applied. However, they are completely non-destructive. You see if I tap adjust again, I can see all of the adjustments that I've carried out. And I can modify them. For example, I went too far on the exposures. So I'm just going to tap there again. And this I'm going to push it the other way just to lighten that off like so. So hit the tick just there and now that's ready.
Let's bring in another image. And what I'm going to do is tap the plus in the layer stack over on the right-hand side. And I'll choose this image that has plenty of sky. Now it's somewhat larger than the image that's underneath, which actually comes from my Instagram. And it asks me if I want to resize the canvas to that size. I don't, so I'm going to tap cancel. But I am going to zoom in on the image by pinching outwards like so.
And you'll see that I get a heart there telling me what I'm doing. And now I'm going to make an adjustment here as well. So I'm going to tap adjust and again I'm going to go for the temperature. And I'm going to actually warm this one up. So when the temperature slider appears I'm just going to push this across to the right. I'm then going to add some clarity here as well. And then I'm going to hit the just there.
Now this needs to be underneath the other image. Because what I'm going to do is I'm going to remove the sky in the first image. To move it in the layer stack you simply long-press on the thumbnail and drag it to where you want it to be in the stack. In the next movie, we'll actually cut out the sky in our rocks image, and reveal the sky from the other image.
