Editing In Adobe Photoshop Fix

I'm mainly talking about lighter mobile here, but I do want to briefly talk to you guys about Photoshopped fix, because it's it's just a fantastic tool tohave alongside light from Mobile. So just talk about it really quickly. Here's an image that I shot on the sabbatical in Santa Fe, and that's it's not how I saw it. I I'll be honest. It took out the power lines. That is how the image originally looked. I was just traveling with the IPad. I didn't have anything with me and I thought, You know what? I'll give it a try. I used fix to get rid of those power lines. I could have gotten rid of the path I could have. I could have changed all sorts of content in there. I don't know if you guys have seen this app. I'll show it to you really quickly because it's actually built in really tightly with Labour Mobile. Here's how it works. So let's take this image here. There's not a whole lot wrong with this, but what I want to do is I want to edit this. I'm gonna just go with the small image and fi...

x if I have fix already installed here, which I do. It's free mobile app that we make. It knows that it's there and it says, Well, maybe you want to do one of these two really common operations, and so one of them is healing. And so I'm just gonna say, OK, let's do Let's do some healing. It launches fix it duplicates the image. It's just like that workflow that I've got in late room on the desktop. Or when I hop over to Photoshop, it duplicates my image, Um, and it allows me to just pick up from there. So what happened is I launched that it launched fix. I got my image here, and it's constrained me to this one particular part of fix where I'm going to hell this out so I can zoom in here, and not that I would necessarily want to get rid of these birds. But if I do, I could come through and I could just zap them out of their. You know there's ethical implications with retouching, but there are some reasons I think we can all agree that retouching is important. Removing lens flare, de branding. Let's say I'm doing an ad shot and I don't want to advertise for Nike. You know, I could just do brand that really quickly and easily picking up trash in an image. There are a lot of ways that you can retouch that don't mean that you're completely overhauling the image. What's neat about this is that let's say I choose to heal over here. It's just gonna patch that in. This is the same very sophisticated healing and cloning photo shop on the desktop. This is a hybrid tool, so if I touch patch on the bottom, it will say, Well, where do you want to pull that from? I could choose to add birds to this image as well. This is a great example of how I've got this power of Photoshopped, but I have this enhanced usability. We've completely redesigned it for touch, and so I've got these tools that behave in different ways. If you want to use it as a clone stamp tool, maybe I want to use it. Is healing brush tool? Um, I think I've already done this with light room, but I don't want you guys to think of mobile editing as less than because it's just not the case at all. I can open 50 megapixel images in here. I could throw an image from the five DS and hair, and I could edit that. No problem. When I'm done when I'm happy with what I've got, I could just save and return the light room. And what will happen is my mildly edited version will sit right next to my other one right there. Um, just to show you a kind of ridiculous example, maybe you guys have seen This is my friend Steve and one of the things you could do here. And I mention this because this level of innovation actually drove changes on the desktop is if you come into something like liquefy, we can automatically segment the face. And so if I wanted to just change Steve's expression not that there's anything wrong with it, I think he had a smirk in the original. It's really easy to do that. So the thing to know about fixing about all of these mobile APS is that you can get content from light room. This is sort of the glue back to what I'm talking about with late room. Think of light from its home base. For all of your images, you can always get to those images wherever you are. When we first started doing this, I think the biggest deal was just access just being able to get to your stuff. When Labour a Mobile first came out, it was about being able to leverage what was on the desktop so that you could use mobile devices as a portfolio. You could rank and sort stuff, and you could show it to other people. But it's really gotten to the point where you could do almost everything you can do on the desktop. And in my mind, the raw workflow and offloading raw has has really, really changed it. The best way to experience it is to just sort of live in it. So that's a whole lot of stuff about like your mobile. What I want to do now is just talk to what the experience looks like in the cloud between. I want to show you guys something that you probably haven't seen, and then we'll finish it up by just looking at what the experience looks like on the desktop on a couple things to know over there. So I'm gonna take off my mobile, have for second as much as I love it. Um, And I'll tell you guys 17 years in adobe, 15 years on the Photoshopped team. The last couple of years, I've been doing all mobile stuff because I really believe in this. I believe that this is the future of creativity. Not that the desktop goes away, but that you can be Justus creative away from your desk as you are at it. Okay, So having said that, um, we're Ida Tab over the light room. I've got my sink collection here, and all of those images are in the state that I left them in. Well, how is that possible? It's because they're in the cloud there, passing through the cloud. Um, I can download them locally. Of course. In fact, I'm sorry to backtrack. This is very important. Come back here for one seconds. Crucial. I'm sorry I didn't mention it. If you're in here and you have collections one day you will experience this thing where your loving light ra mobile and everything's going fine. And then you find yourself without a connection and you want to get to your images and can't. It's really important to know this with any of these collections. Let's say it's Ah, this one of my my son of the beach here, these three dots, one of the things you can do is enable offline editing If you have images that you want to be able to access beyond the cloud, if you're gonna be somewhere without wife, I do that now. The reason we have you opt into that do it manually is you only have so much storage on your mobile devices. We've all been in this scenario where you're deleting videos and maybe even APS to make room for stuff. So we don't want to presume that you want everything you've ever shot on your mobile device. But if you do want to have certain photos living locally, you could do that. There. You can undo it there as well. You actually have all sorts of options there. I promise we're going back to the desktop and stay there now. But that's a really important one. And if I forgot to share that with you, I feel awful

This class was my favorite of all the 2016 Photo Week post classes. Bryan is a great teacher approaching his topics from a working photographer perspective, as well as an Adobe insider viewpoint. I starting using all the material Bryan covered immediately after the class, and have already sold a stock photo. I am completely sold on his reasoning about taking the time to organize your catalog. I highly recommend any class past or future Bryan is teaching.

Bryan's passion for the Lightroom Mobile workflow makes it easy to understand and adopt. He demonstrates with easy-to-follow examples how to capture and edit in the field on the IPad or IPhone. (Though not mentioned during the class the Android app is equally facile.) I am now ready to fully adopt LR Mobile and apply is to my workflow. Bryan is an articulate and natural trainer, and makes this topic completely transparent and approachable.
