Samsung Note 8 and Photoshop Mix — Post Six

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

That’s a photo of some markings at the end of a bridge railing mixed with a photo of leaves and another photo of flowers. 

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.

That’s a photo of a piece of driftwood from our Alaska Cruise plus a photo of leaves plus the ice pattern atop a puddle that had frozen over. 

That’s a mix of flowers, a doodle of mine, and a photo of a salsify seed floating upside down in a puddle of water. HERE are even more salsify photos.

This next photo features a macro of a fork combined with a photo of Bob Bones and a photo of the Big Island seashore near us.

This next photo is of a piece of wheat bread (one with a semblance a face on it) blended with some fabric and a photo of a group of cells.

This next offering is the same combo as above but with different blends between photos. 

This next blend is of a metal octopus (from a boiler we saw during a shore excursion in Alaska) blended with a piece of bagel I used for one of my food faces series and a photo of shells and pieces of shells. 

Next, a different blending of the same photos. 

. . . and yet another blending of the above

Some readers might wonder . . . “WHY?! Why on Earth would you waste your — not to mention, our — time with such nonsense?”

First of all, readers could have skipped right over this, so time wasted is on you. As for the rest . . . sometimes I get bored, take out my phone, fire up an app or two, and create stuff as I let my mind wander through time and space, sorting out the secrets of the universe. 

. . . in case anyone wants to know how I’m getting on with that . . . well, they don’t call them secrets for nothing. If you want to figure them out, you have to figure them out on your own. All I can tell you is that they’re doozies, I tell you what. 

However, for them yearning for my “regular photos, here are a couple . . . . or four. These were not shot with the Note 8.
