Against The Clock
↳ Client: Etapes, Adobe
29 minutes and 04 seconds were enough to produce a technical image with the theme of psychedelia, using unusual Photoshop tools. Started by using the Smudge tool , which softens or spreads the colors in an image, then the Smooth filter , which distorts an image in subtle or pronounced ways. Here, it skilfully has been used for touch-ups. To create the background, the Sky Replacement tool ( new for Photoshop 2021 ) has been used more as an image database. Many shapes and patterns have been used drawn directly from the Creative Cloud library in thePixel Squid plug-in or image snippets provided by Adobe Stock. The History Shape tool has also been used, which allows parts of an image to be restored to a previous historical state by painting over them. The composition is based mainly on a clever use of fusion and vector masks, which allow to play with the perspective and depth of the composition without removing elements.
