Just a quick dip. @diikom
Hi everyone, it’s @annamcnaughty here for my last day! It’s been such an honor to be here and share some of my work with you all! • Today, I’m excited to introduce this month’s theme: #Ps_Escape It’s your turn to share places where you might go to escape from reality or enter into a fantasy land. So set your creativity free, let your imagination run wild and tag your images with #Ps_Escape for a chance to be featured on the Photoshop Instagram page! • Remember, don’t be too hard on yourself and never limit your creativity. It’s all a learning process, and we’ll continue to learn for the rest of our lives. That’s the beauty of it! • Thanks for hanging out with me! I’ll see you all soon 👋
Hi again! It’s @annamcnaughty A few years ago I did a Mt. Fuji edit with lanterns in the water. I wanted to try something similar, but with a more romantic feel. • I have not been to Japan yet, but it’s definitely on my bucket list! Have you been? I have heard that Mt. Fuji is magical in real life. I can only imagine! • See you on Monday!
Hi again! It’s @annamcnaughty with day four of the takeover. • When I started this piece, the concept was completely different in my mind. I originally thought that I wanted a person fishing from the top of the bottle (my mind goes to strange places! ), but as I started working, the idea evolved. That’s the beauty of Photoshop: it enables you to adapt with your art. • It’s also really important to get feedback from someone you trust. For me, that’s my brother. He always offers constructive criticism that helps me push my boundaries. I knew this piece was lacking something when I started working on it, and together we decided to add the sailboat. It added depth and completed the idea with a human element. • Don’t forget to check out the editing process on my page and in our Instagram Stories!
Hey, hey! It’s @annamcnaughty on day three of the takeover! • I created this piece about a year ago, but I just updated it the other day. If you edit nondestructively with layer masks, Photoshop gives you the ability to re-edit years later. I used to actually erase background elements (I think a lot of us started that way ) and soon learned that I was destroying my hard work. Layer masks and adjustment layers were game changers for me! You wouldn’t believe some of the things I used to do. But hey, it’s all a learning process, right? • See you all tomorrow for day four. Check out my page and the Instagram Story for a special tap-to-edit!
Hi guys, it’s @annamcnaughty Today’s piece is one of my favorites. I created it during an Adobe Live stream a few months back with help from some incredible creators. • I was struggling to find the perfect window for this idea, and since I was in the studio, I didn’t have time to go hunt one down to photograph. That same week, @melaamory was on Adobe Live too. She’s an incredible 3D artist; she made this window for me in under 10 minutes! I was blown away and just loved the way it turned out. • What do you guys think? Check out our Instagram Stories and head over to my page to see how this was made! 😄
Hi everyone! It's @annamcnaughty here. I'm a digital artist, photographer, designer and Instagram strategist from Los Angeles, CA. I'm so honored and excited to take over the Photoshop Instagram page this week! • I first started using Photoshop all the way back in my 7th grade Graphics class. Our assignment was to pick a word to design and make the text’s style reflect the meaning of the word. Mine was “cold,” so I made the letters all look like ice. I realized I could essentially create anything my imagination could dream up – I was instantly hooked! • When did you all first start using Photoshop? I’d love to hear about your journey! • Stay up to date with our Instagram Stories this week to check out some fun behind the scenes content! • P.S. That’s me in the photo! Nice to meet you 😊
Hi everyone, this is @demas with one last post for this takeover! I'm honored to be able to showcase my work here on the Photoshop Instagram account. Thank you so much for having me this week. Before I go, I want to challenge you to be curious every day, to ask questions about what could be ('what if...?’ ), and to be as imaginative as you can! This is what will set you apart from everyone else. • Now it's your turn to come up with your own creative interpretations of this month's Photoshop theme: #Ps_Cityscape ! I'm so excited to see all the amazing edits you guys come up with. • Check out today's Instagram stories for a before and after of this edit.
Hi everyone, this is @demas ! Since I work in an architecture office during the day, the only time I get to shoot is either at night or during the weekends. Over the years, I've grown to love shooting at night because not only is the city much calmer and more serene, but the darkness presents a much more challenging way of capturing images. In this edit, I use a combination of layer masks and particle brushes to give the effect that the top half of the building is floating into outer space! It's super cool how Photoshop can bring such surreal ideas into reality. • If you also love night photography, search for @globalnightsquad ! It is a night photography community that I started with my friend, and we host photo walks and workshops all around the world.
Hi everyone, it’s @demas again. This idea came about when I was shooting a time-lapse of the Golden Gate Bridge from sunset to night last year. While I was waiting for the time-lapse to finish, I saw the sky change dramatically in front of my eyes. I wanted to capture this passing of time through this one edit. The transition from day to night is something we experience everyday, and it's pretty crazy how epic the colors in the sky can be! • To see a before and after of this edit, check out today's Instagram stories.
It’s @demas , back again! Did you guys know that you can create video animations/GIFs using Photoshop? I was shocked when I first found this out a few years ago! Adding a layer of movement to your images always takes it to the next level, in my opinion. Do you guys think that the building looks like a robot from Transformers? • This animation above was created using Photoshop by separating the different parts of the buildings onto different layers and then keyframing the up and down movements of each layer. You can also add audio too. Finally, export it out as a video file or a GIF. Try it out for yourselves, it's super easy!
Hey guys, it’s @demas here, and I’ll be taking over the Photoshop Instagram this week! When I saw the Burj Khalifa in Dubai for the first time, the architect in me was in awe of how tall it really was – so tall that my imagination went to the moon! • A tip for creating conceptual images like this using Photoshop is to have an idea first before you start using the program. By having an end goal, you will be more focused on trying to achieve it, and even if it doesn't work out, you might come up with a better idea during the process!
