California State Flower

I’m really liking the app Waterlogue, but I like it even more when I blend the original photo with the output from Waterlogue. Yesterday I was walking around Moorpark College with a friend and we were both taking photos. We stumbled upon an area of poppies and I took several photos. Here is one of the unprocessed originals.

I used the RAV filehub to transfer the photo to my iPad mini and then opened it up in Waterlogue. Here is the look it gave me when I used “Soaked” and “Lighter”.

I opened up the saved Waterlogue file in iColorama and went to Effects>Blend and selected the original photo to blend, then I used the Lighten preset and lowered the Feature slider to 70%.

After applying the settings I wanted to see what adding Coherence would do. I tried 1/11 and 11/11 before selecting 10/11.

I really liked the look but wanted to bring some structure back into the image. I went back into Effects>Blend and opened up the photo from step 3. I used Normal blend mode and set the Feature slider to 80%.

I was now ready to add my logo/watermark in iWatermark.

I then opened up the saved image in PhotoToaster and added the black frame (Frame>3>Brushed, Width: about 50%).

The final step was creating the Before and After photo in Leonardo.
