We will invite members to edit one of our images. Images will be available for one week. We'll take four names at a time (see list here).

People offering an image will give some guidance/make some specific(ish) requests, e.g:
  • I'd like to see this image *pop* more
  • Not sure of the best crop
  • Any iColorama [or other app] suggestions?
  • How would you make this image into a mono?
  • How would you make it an abstract?
  • I seem to have lost the detail of the building/tree/people - can you bring it back without losing the fog?
  • How would you make the most of this mistake I made?
  • Only straight processing, please - nothing 'arty'
  • Knock yourself out - surprise me!
  • And so on

Roolz for contributing editors:
  1. Please respect requests (and the image) of the person offering. I.e: Don't offer a Decim8'd abstract if s/he has asked for 'straight processing only'. And vv. Don't add anything to the image that the original maker wouldn't be able to add her/himself: i.e., nothing from your own camera roll.
  2. Please provide a brief summary of and rationale for your editing processes (this is a group learning process. For the same reason, please offer just one or two edits - three if there's some profoundly educational point to be made.

Roolz for people offering images:
  1. Please be clear about what you'd like to see from others' expertises (see example q's above).
  2. Please acknowledge and comment briefly on each edit offered -- and offer a little wrap-up at the end of the week. Anything that struck you about a particular edit of your image? Something you've learned? An app you simply must purchase & learn? However you wrap up is up to you: but we'll all be holding our breath to hear what you think.


Please browse the thoughtful feedback and comments from our beta testers here
See the beta tests #1 #2 #3 and #4 for examples of previous questions and offered edits

Mobi Challenge guidelines are here.

#6 offering will be from RoseCat !

I saw this in November while walking the beach, and what I *saw* in my mind wasn't realized in digital form. I loved it in real life, but when I looked at the image in the camera roll I was underwhelmed. [emoji52]

Maybe it's just poor composition? This has been sitting gathering dust, so anything you guys want to do to it is fine by me. [emoji847]

It looks beautiful to me, but let's see what we can do. :thumbs:

Cropped in Snapseed and I also adjusted the Brightness, Saturation and Ambiance. Then into Stackables I applied the Mild Day coloured overlay. Then back into Snapseed for a simple white frame. It was only after I cropped it that I saw the gull behind the plant.

I've taken a number of photos like this at the beach and also been disappointed with the result. Often that turns out to be because the object doesn't stand out from the background in the photo the way it does in person. Same thing here, I thought -- the branches are merging with the similarly colored sand all around. I thought one of the BeCasso Toon filters might help.

(I did this before I saw JillyG's edit and totally missed the seagull!)

I tried messing about with my edit in iColorama inspired by juryjone Jerry.
I imported the image, Style>Threshold>6 and adjusted the red, green and blue to get something I liked. Then Adjust>Exposure and I adjusted the brightness down (or up) to about 60%. I saved this image. Then I went back to the original image and applied Style>Flat>15. I brought back the first image by Effects>Blend>Darken to add back the lines. Save. Then into Repix to smooth out the sky with Charcoal. I'm exhausted.:rolleyes:

Oooo.... I don't think I ever noticed the gull! Your edit is lovely - nice and vibrant.

As I have a new phone (precious) I 've only installed snapseed so far. My usual edits did little to improve it but I wanted to frame it differently and perfectly good crops have been done already so I went into perspective and got snapseed to generate space on 3 sides of the picture. Obviously it looked a bit artificial in places so I healed what I could. Couldn't get the line of the water unfortunately. Snapseed's missing a cloning tool to my mind.
Some of the healing gave the sky texture so I 'healed' in some clouds.
Ambiance, highs & lows adjusted, saturation dropped. Drama to bring out detail in the sky, tonal contrast for the sand.

I've been playing with Enlight and Procreate, so forgive me if this is not ... what's the word? ... great. I've just discovered how to change the colour of something you've written in Procreate.:D The birds were added in Enlight.

I used two apps: Drop and Repix. Drop for masking the bush to make it more outstanding and played just a very little in Repix with vibrancy and some more, added some bokeh, crack and one I forgot, but I highlighted a little. – Can somebody PLLLEEEEEAAAASE tell me how to make the blinking brush smaller?With zooming in it works, but I always lose the section I want to put a nice stroke on. [emoji53]
Any ways it looks different. [emoji4]

Edit: forgot to explain Drop: that's a new app where you can play with DoF, it has layers and I did my best to mask the wood. Just did it on 6s+. Pad might have been better. Hell, I was wishing it was a stone or other more compact thing. [emoji23]
