PSTouch

After exploring the reasons for a focus on creating graphics, we start to explore apps that enable!

Step up Photoshop Touch – PSTouch

PS Touch (Photoshop Touch) features plenty of features from the full/desktop Photoshop software. It takes a little while to get used to the menus but once mastered, great graphics can be created to be used for presentations and the like. It is not surprising for users to end up choosing it over the desktop version!
NOTE: The graphics below were created in PS Touch.

This page includes:

#PSTOUCH101  tutorials/projects/tasks/ideas!

The app is used by many to edit photos with filters and adjustments. the focus of the next couple of tutorials is on transparencies and layers.

Tutorial 1: Working with Layers

Being able to work with layers and Transparencies enable a whole lot of creation of graphics. This Tutorial will demonstrate Layers, highlight their strengths and show you how to work with them.

On Mobile devices click anywhere BUT the play icon! huh!

Tutorial 2: Graphics with transparent backgrounds

Images with transparent backgrounds are great for layering objects in other apps like having text going behind the graphic. They are also great for apps like Explain Everything where they can be used as tools or puppets for interaction.

on a mobile device click anywhere BUT the play symbol! huh!
