Samsung Note 8 and Photoshop Mix — Post Five

My fifth post showcasing my experiments in using Photoshop Mix (Post One link, Post Two link, Post Three link, Post Four link).

Once again, everything in here has been created and/or captured using the Samsung Note 8 and all edits are done on the Samsung Note 8. I then transfer the files to the PC so that I can output them using Lightroom (how I add the watermark).

For them not interested in reading, you can go directly to the SmugMug Gallery HERE.  
For a slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

Photoshop Mix lets you take any number of photos, apply basic “looks” and then blend them in various ways. Depending on the blend, the structure (edges and or textures) don’t appear in an obvious way. Instead, the colors combine to produce new blends of colors.

That’s the combination of a Koa Woodcarving and a quilt with some other stuff . . . 

. . . and then I found Lucille Ball and combined it with an aquarium, some plumeria flowers, a sunset, and a few other things. 

I thought the image would be a good candidate for some Paper Artist effects . . . 

I also have a photo of a fairly realistic human head mannequin adorned in Indian (American Indian) headgear and paint. 

The face looks Caucasian but perhaps I’m not up on all the various Indian tribe and their ethnic purity. 

One combination I found interesting was that of an owl wall art and a painting of Pele (or some random woman holding a rock) . . . 

I should have removed the facial features of the woman to get a better blend of the owl face and the woman’s body . . . maybe next time. 

Here’s a Paper Artist version of the same mix . . . 

The last mix experiment was of an imported Indonesian (I presume) sculpture (the head) and a bunch of stuff I don’t now remember . . . 

That too got the Paper Artist treatment . . . 

Overall, I’ve had fun exploring the app and there are a few more things I want to try but, for now, on to other things. Thanks for reading.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
