182 - Giving You The Bird

Day 182. Took a photo of this beautiful parrot this morning on my Nexus 5, then brought it into Adobe Photoshop Touch on my iPad mini. I extracted the bird from its background and applied a comic effect with posterised colours and dark edges, then placed a different background behind it, blurred it with a Gaussian blur effect, then used a splatter filter to turn it into paint blobs. Finally merged down the layers, did some colour correction, and cropped it.

Final verdict? Photoshop Touch packs some serious image editing power, and anyone who tells you the iPad is just a "consumption device" has no idea what they're talking about. Oh, and I like the bird too.
