I love taking pictures, of everything from the view out a plane window on a red eye flight to the intricate plating of my dish at a posh restaurant, I'm always pulling out my phone or my camera and snapping a quick photo to share with others.
Some may say it's best to live in the moment and not take pictures, while I understand that mindset - part of living in the moment for me is taking pictures. I love being able to document the exact moment I'm experiencing. Whether it's talking with my niece about how she recently turned two or a long walk on the beach with my hubby, these are moments I want to remember forever - therefore I want to capture them via a lens, as well as my memory.
The issue with always wanting to snag a picture, as some of you fellow photo enthusiasts may know, is that the quality of the photo isn't always great straight off the camera. Sometimes you have to adjust the lighting, play with the contrast, or even use some serious editing skills to remove or add something into a picture. I've always been a big fan of using Photoshop to complete these edits, it's the best editing software on the market. Notice Chrissy Teigen and Pippa on a stroll on their way to hang out with me below - this picture wouldn't be possible without Photoshop!
I use the Creative Cloud, specifically Photoshop for almost every single photo I share. I don't always do serious edits - sometimes I just want to add my logo to the corner of a photo, which is easy to do once you create a brush! If you're a small business, a blog, an internet celebrity, or anyone that just wants to stake claim on your photo, you should be adding just a little watermark to make sure your content is claimed as yours! Want to make a logo brush and add it to all of your photos?
First you'll need to download Adobe Creative Cloud so you can have access to Photoshop and Lightroom, which retails $119 for an entire year subscription!
Next you'll open your logo in Photoshop.
Then click on edit > define brush preset.
Name the brush whatever you prefer.
Use your logo on any and all photos you share, now they'll never end up used without your permission. I circled the use of my logo below, just to display it as an example - the red line obviously won't be there when you choose your brush from the brush options!
And that's it... Photoshop is that easy to use, just a few steps and you're already a professional with watermarked photos! With so many abilities, Adobe Creative Cloud is the ideal way to create and access your vision from any device, anywhere.
Retouching, manipulating, transforming in just about any way you can imagine- it's all at your finger tips with Photoshop and Lightroom, that's why I love Adobe so much! It helps me create what I want so easily, allowing my imagination and creativity to truly flow!
Plus, you can organize, edit & share images from anywhere: on your computer, on the web, on your tablet and on your cell phone! Another reason to love the Creative Cloud, you can make an edit or flag a favorite in one place and it's automatically updated everywhere else through Adobe CreativeSync technology.
Once you download the Creative Cloud, you'll have access to so many more programs than you can imagine. Not only can you create amazing work, you can showcase your work, organize images in web galleries or share them on your favorite social site! Adobe Slate mobile app is the best way to craft visual stories and animated videos and you can use the Adobe Voice mobile app to add your own voice for narration.
