TheFIX 065: Photoshop Mobile Apps to Photoshop Desktop

Photoshop Mobile Apps to Photoshop Desktop with Seán Duggan

This week on TheFIX, host Seán Duggan takes you through a project-based episode that starts in Photoshop on the desktop and moves to the Photoshop mobile apps Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Fix on an iPad. In the mobile part of the workflow we process a file that started on the desktop and was saved to my Creative Cloud folder to make it available to the Photoshop apps on my iPad (Photoshop Mix is available for iOS and Android; Photoshop Fix is iOS only at the present time). We work on the file in Photoshop Fix and then move on to Photoshop Mix. Once in Mix, specific layers are moved over to Photoshop Fix for healing or liquify transformations. The saved result from Fix then updates into the layers in Photoshop Mix. After starting a composite on the mobile platform of the iPad, the file is then sent to Photoshop on the desktop for additional refinements. The mobile connection from a tablet or phone to Photoshop on the desktop is a very useful way to seamlessly work on your creative projects on a variety of platforms. Seán also talks about the next Rocky Nook book giveaway and give s a preview of Le Cirque Photographique, a mobile photography creativity pre-conference workshop at Photoshop World that he is working on with Russell Brown from Adobe. See more details in the links section below.

  • Hi Sean, firstly keep up the great podcasts. It seems like every time I listen I learn something new – and most importantly, something very useful.

    Secondly, I have a couple of suggestions for topics, although I recognise the first one may not require a whole show.

    It’s about brushes. There are just so many types of brushes and settings, I only ever seem to end up using the same one and same old settings each time so I am sure I am missing out on lots of function. I’ve seen people do amazing things with brushes such as create light rays – I wouldn’t have a clue how to do this.

    Secondly, filters. There are just so many types, which are the ones that are most used and why? Which four or five should everyone know how to use and then what are some others that are cool?

    Best wishes from England.
