As I was browsing through my Instagram feed yesterday I came across a hashtag that I wondered what the app was, I found out that its PhotoCrash 2 Photo Editor. What it does is very similar to MasterFX but laid out totally different.
Using the output from Mirrored app in the other day’s post, “The Magi“, I opened PhotoCrash 2 to play around. As soon as I saw the Fantasy category I knew that was my first stop. I didn’t get much farther than the third image on the top, this was going to be the Magi’s “daughter”. The on-screen instructions told me to press and hold to move the object; re-sizing it was a challenge, but eventually I got it to shrink so I could put her in place in front of her “father” with part of his head still showing.
After I saved the image I opened up the Reflect app and used the Concrete Tiles again. I then pressed on the top of the “floor” and dragged it down to just below her feet. I then tapped on the edit icon and made some adjustments.
I then added the Smooth Fog again and adjusted the color.
With it looking the way I liked, it was now time to tap on FX Mode. I added four layers.
- Solar Rays
- Rainbow – Moved above the original arch and made adjustments
- Lightening 2 – Added to both sides, had to flip one of the sides and created a mask to “erase” where I didn’t want it showing
After I saved the image as a png I noticed I could take it into one of their other apps that I own, I decided to use Alien Sky. I used four layers:
- Milky Way 1 – Used at the top of the image above the arch
- Cold Fire – Used below the arch
- M104 – Used below her feet
- Purple Nebula – Used over the whole image
I was curious what the Filters would do to the image so I went there next and used Cinematic and made some adjustments.
I then tapped on Textures and ended up using Scratches.
I liked the composition overall but felt it needed some contrast. I opened Snapseed and started by adding Drama with the following settings:
- Drama: 90
- Saturation: 10
I then used Tune Image with the following settings:
- Brightness: 15
- Ambiance: 35
- Contrast: 10
- Saturation: 0
- Shadows: -5
- Highlights: 5
- Warmth: 25
I was now ready to add my logo/watermark, metadata and StegoMark in iWatermark +.
To get the image ready to post on Instagram I used Insta Full Size and selected the black borders.
The final step was creating the Before and After photo in Leonardo.
