3rd Party Apps to Add Dimension & Texture
since we've been talking about film looks, there's a lot of items you might want to have, like grit and light leaks that you actually cannot do in light room. So we've got some third party apps you can use on your mobile device. Give that extra little bit of film. Look, let's talk about a few of them. The first one I'd like to talk about is mixtures. Now, the cool thing about mixtures is it is also available for Photoshop, so you can actually do this on a higher end scale. Also, not just on little little files. So this one is really super cool. And with mixtures, you get these great film textures and grit and emotion of A. I really love this program. As you can tell, you can also put light leaks on so you could conceivably create an image in black and white in light room and then bring it into mixtures and put a light league on it. That's in color, which is very cool. So, um, the other thing about mixtures that I really enjoy are these emotions, and I think they're so beautiful and the...
y add that kind of film grit and imperfections that you really might want to use to take your image is the next level up and you can see you can do some kind of fun watercolor look, paper textures with them. It's all about layering. And here's the thing. I'm really trying to encourage you guys to look outside the box so you don't have to just stick to light room. You can extend yourself and get further, more effects, more looks by just expanding and the cool thing about mixtures they have. This thing called formulas and formulas are kind of like, You know, I kind of consider them like presets. So what you can do is you can actually load up formulas. They have a whole section on black and white formulas, and you can see that here. But you can also save your own formulas and give them to other people, so the mixture site has a whole way of doing it. You can do some through instagram, and it's definitely worth checking out. These are just a few of the inspirational formulas you can find on the mixtures website. Seriously, go check them out. You'll be inspired, and this is what I happen to do on Mono Lake. It's kind of fun, kind of cool, and you just type in those codes to get that formula. So again the program is called mixtures. You can customize it, and it's also available for Photoshop. I'm not gonna lie, though. It's a little slow. It's not the fastest app in the world, but, okay, we got a little time.
