Composing images on the ipad
In this first lesson, we begin by creating a magical photo composition inspired by the work of Ted Chin. It’s a fairly long exercise, where lots of features of Photoshop on the iPad pass by. After following this lesson, you will have created a beautiful composition, and you’ll also see that you can create fantastic images with Photoshop on the iPad with relatively few tools!
The photo composition
In this first “real” tutorial chapter, you’ll learn how to create the composition you see on the next page. When I teach Photoshop courses, I always find that the best way to learn software is by doing, not by reading through a manual. After all, in a manual you won’t find many practical exercises.
Inspired by the work of Ted Chin (Figure 4.01), in this exercise we’ll combine a large number of tools and techniques in a very efficient way, eventually giving you the beautiful end result shown in Figure 4.02. By combining as many tools and different kinds of images as possible, you will immediately have a good overview of the possibilities in Photoshop on the iPad.
Good luck and most of all have fun!
