- [Instructor] You can also seamlessly work between Photoshop on desktop and Photoshop on iPad. Especially thanks to Cloud documents. And actually I'm going to start out here in Photoshop on the desktop. Notice there's just like a text layer, got some fun birds in here, this bear, misty landscape. So I can start here on my desktop and pick up right where I left off on my iPad. Key thing I'm going to do here, is introduce you to Cloud documents. These are Photoshop cloud documents. I'm going to do a Save As, right over here, Save to Cloud documents. And this makes it easy because I don't have to worry about putting this in Dropbox or Box or like airdropping it or whatever. I'm saving this as California in Cloud documents. So it will be available to me immediately on the iPad. And here it is on my iPad. It's a PSDC file. Notice that I can also just create from a new blank file if I want to, in Photoshop on the iPad. But here I'm going to just pick right where I left off by selecting this California file. And here it is, check it out. We can see our layers. We can actually just view by icon or by an expanded layer, name and icon. And we can see all of those assets. Everything works as expected right in here. As I select this text, notice how I can actually view the layer properties. So right in here for this text, I can jump in. I can change the text if I want to. You get the idea. It automatically sync that font by the way, since it's an Adobe font. Alright. So that looks pretty good. What I actually want to do is I want to isolate this bear. So remove it's background. And I can use the various selection tool, Lasso tool. Guess what? Right here, Select subject. That's what I want to do. Select the subject of that layer. And we can see it selects the bear. Down here at the bottom we have additional options. So I can say, "Hey, you know what? "Let's mask it out." It masks it out. You can see right over here, we have a layer mask and then we have the layer. So I can kind of toggle between those two. And typically I like to keep the layer properties up, but what I want to do now is take this background and put it inside of that bear. So with that misty landscape selected, I'll go to this File menu. We'll duplicate this layer. We will move this up above the bear layer. And again, I can kind of move this around with the move tool. We can see that. I could drop that in like that. We can also transform it as well. In this case, I'll kind of flip it a couple times, kind of like that, kind of want this perspective. Just making it a little bit unique. But what I want to do, is I want to make this a clipped layer. So check this out, right over here off to the side, there's the arrow with the box pointing down, I made a clipping mask is what I did. I could do this on the desktop. Guess what? I can do it on the iPad. I kind of want to bring in some more color from the bear as well. So right in here, I'll just go down to that bear layer. I will duplicate that layer. I will put it on top. And let's make sure this layer is clipped again. And for this top layer by the way, here's this bear, so undo that, I want to dive into Blend Modes. Right down here, Blend Modes. Darken and Multiply everything that we'd expect. Lighten looks really good. I'll try Linear Burn. No, Lighten looks really good. Might be what I want to go for but it's cool that I can kind of jump through all of these and figure out what color which I think will look good. I like this Lighter Color actually. So again, you can see you have all of those Layer Blend Modes. If we want it too over the top of everything else, let's kind of move these birds over. I can also add, if I do a long press on that plus sign, I can add an Adjustment Layer. So here you can see these various options, including Curves. As I take a look in here, I can start to tweak that accordingly. Whatever I want to do to get the look that I want. So works out pretty well. And I would say, this looks great. A lot of people will actually export out the image. You don't need to do that. You can if you want to. Export it out and put it on my iPad. All you have to do is really just close this file. I'm going to to click that Home icon. It has been saving in the background. And it's actually being synced right now. So it will be available on my desktop if I want to continue working on it. Because again, it is a PSDC file, Photoshop cloud documents, but there's more I can do. So let's open up a browser. To assets.adobe.com/cloud-documents. We'll go right in here. We can see Cloud documents. This file will update in a second once it's synced. And here it is. I can click on this file. You can see it right here, looks great. Here you can get a link for the file. You could send this link to somebody else. They can comment on it and you can kind of keep that conversation going until the project is completed. So it's a very powerful Photoshop from desktop to iPad, and then back to desktop if I want. And even these sharing capabilities. There's a lot you can do.
