What do we mean by photoshop a picture? After all there tons of things “photoshop” can mean, from ajusting illuminance and contrast in a picture, to completely edit it, adding new object to the original picture, removing some objects, creating cool effects. Well, in this tutorial what we are going to cover is how to add objects to the original picture. But for this we are not going to use precisely photoshop, we are going to use an alternative named www.photoshopeditoronline.com
Photoshop editor online is web based photo editor focused mainly in adding new objects to pictures in a seamless way. It’s main purpose it’s to keep it is easy and interactive. To photoshop your pictures the first step is obviously going to the website and click start editing in the home page. Then select the picture you want to photoshop and the picture that you are going to use as frame (also called background). For this example we are going to use a regular person (front) and some kind of chakra aura (background).
Then we are going to select the person using the selection tool provided by the website and click crop (it’s the “done” button). Afterwards we are goind to place the cropped area into it’s new position in the background photo, make some rotations and scaling to make it fit. Then click the “Finish” button. And select the mix option.
Actually if have read our past tutorials you may have noticed that this is the first time we use the mix option, so we are going to talk about it a little bit. The mix algorithm combines the details of both pictures, the front and backgound, but keeps the colors of the backgound, making it look natural, if you remember the difference with the overlay option is that the overlay kept the colors af the background as well, but removed the details of the background. The mix options can be useful en many cases, for example adding a tattoo, getting an aura, placing a skull in front of you, adding particles to pictures and more, without lossing the escence of the backgound picture.
So once we get the result, we should get something like this:
tada! We just photoshopped a picture in minutes using the mix option!
Photoshop is simply just a beautiful, powerful tool for photo editing, but many times you may not have access to it, mainly due to it’s price. So we made a quick search over the internet to find the closest alternative to photoshop and we found some fairly good editors.
First of all we have pixlr, which basically features and interface almost identical to the real photoshop, it has the same tools and essence. The only turn down is that it is a little bit slow, since the changes you make must be performed in the server side and then sent back to you. Also it is not the same to work in a web browser than in a desktop application, to mention one reason, you have less space.
Another alternative is photoshop editor online, which presents a change of perspective, it doesn’t features the same tools or interface as photoshop, but it is used for the same purpose. You can achieve the same results as photoshop but with less effort and in a more interactive way, you do it by only telling that website what you want it to do, but not how to do it, and website deals with the how.
And basically that’s all there is. Of course there are plenty other websites with the word photoshop on it’s name, but they are nothing but cheap copies of pixlr, no don’t bother in trying them.
Photoshop is a tool that has gain widespread acceptance, it is loved by people everywhere around the world and even teached at some unniversities. But photoshop has been around for a while now, it’s time to start thinking what’s next.
Well, we’ve seen some replicas of photoshop online since a while but recently we faced with one pretty unique, and that particularly we loved. It is www.photoshopeditoronline.com
So what’s so special about it? It takes the concept of photoshop, meaning that you can create photos that obviusly are not real but make them look real.
So what’s the difference with photoshop then? It’s extremely easy to use (and free).
And isn’t that the tendency. Soon we should all be able to perform amazingly hard task with as little effort as possible. And photoshop editor online accomplish this task fairly well.
It’s use mode is incredibly easy and self-undestandable. You don’t even need intructions to know what the next step is, and what you have to do. It has only one or two buttons, so there’s no way you can get lost, and the algorithms underneath it are incredibly powerful.
Photoshopping photos appears to be taking a turn around with this new concept. So stick to see how it goes, we’ll check on the evolution on this innovative website to see what’s the course of photography editing.
