This week I’m seeing which programs/photo apps give the most appealing subtle images.
The first two are from Stackables. This one uses the Formula ‘Winter Blues’, which reminds me of an old faded photo on metal.
Stackable’s Formula ‘Pale World’ produces an image that reminds me of the ‘hand-tinted’ look done in Photoshop. Photoshop’s easy ‘Hand-Tinted’ photo look. I prefer the Photoshop version; there’s a lot more control in lightening specific areas and adjusting the colours, although that may be because I have a way better handle on Photoshop than I do on Stackables. (How to do this easy hand-tinted look in Photoshop.)
One more attempt; this version using the free Photoshop Express app. There is a lot less selection of looks in this app but each look is infinitely adjustable. This is the slightly adjusted ‘Misty’ look, followed by some heavy duty lightening up ‘Shadows’ and warming up ‘Temperature’.
The final result for Photoshop Express’s ‘Misty’.
