In this video, continue a series of image edits in Snapseed and Instagram in order to create an image of a macro flower to make it look as if it has some magical powers or is dramatically expelling pollen—your call.
- [Instructor] All right, so we've brought this image…into Snapseed, and I'm going to go to tools,…and I'm going to go to my usual tune image,…and check out and see how I can make this image…pop even more.…Doesn't really have saturation.…I'm still tempted to do it though,…that doesn't stop me.…All right, highlights,…I'm going to pop up the highlights.…And a little more detail to the shadows,…and see what happens with warmth.…
Oo, I kind of like that blue tone.…Actually I'm going to make it a little bit warmer,…so just adding a little bit of yellow on there,…I'm going to go ahead and say okay,…and see what happens with the glamour glow.…I like this. There's a nice softness to it,…it takes away the edge of some of the little pixie dust.…I'm going to go ahead and take it,…and I'm going to export it.…And now I'm going to hop into Instagram.…
All right, so we have the image loaded here.…I'm going to scale it a little bit.…I'm going to say next,…and I'm going to scroll through these different filters…and see if something brings a little more pop to my image.…
