Back in the my days as a mobile photography artist, sometimes, for the heck of it, I used to cut around the outline of images in my photos, and then paste them onto different backgrounds. I never went as far as grafting cat heads onto bird bodies, however. Those I left for the Photoshop afficionados. I never could quite get my head around Photoshop, so instead I contented myself by playing with different Apps on my mobile device.
Since taking up mobile photography in 2010, I’ve gone through several mobile devices – an iPhone 3, iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and my current workhorse, a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Sheesh! That’s 1 mobile device almost every year! I guess you could call me a heavy user 😄.
Anyway, I’d been happily using the App “A Thumb Cut” for all my cutting and pasting projects. Until I switched from my Note 4 to the S7 Edge…and the App refused to work. Or rather, I could still cut out my image, but for some reason I was unable to save my work. I wrote to the App developers, but never got a reply.
What’s a girl to do? I know, start searching for a substitute App that I could use instead of “A Thumb Cut”.
After a bit of searching, downloading and testing out a number of duds, I stumbled across a perfectly serviceable App called “Photoshop Mix“. It is actually by Adobe Photoshop, and it works a treat. So once again, I’m back in business, being able to cut and paste images.
Here are a few posters I’ve created for work, using “Photoshop Mix“:
