Getaway with Summer Travel Backgrounds

16 Jun 2021

Summer’s here and we’re ready for the perfect getaway. No luggage required! All you need is your favorite photo, a little bit of creativity, and a gorgeous AirBrush background to create a summer travel masterpiece that’s dripping with sunny goodness.

Take Me To…the Beach!

Time to heat things up with a background that’s the epitome of #travelgram. If you like, AirBrush can take you on a stroll through Japanese cherry blossoms or a walk in the woods. But after those long winter months, the beach is calling our name!

  • Go to the Tools tab
  • Choose the Background tool 
  • Select the Beach Background

Hit all the Right Spots

The Background tool is designed to automatically replace the negative space in your photo, however it’s not always 100% accurate. You may need to rely on the Select Area tool to clean things up a bit.

  • Tap the “pointing finger” in the bottom left corner 
  • Use Select in the center of the menu bar to manually select the area to cut out in the new background
  • For greater accuracy, adjust the Brush size and pinch the screen to zoom in as much as required

Wandered a bit outside the lines? No worries! Use the Eraser tool to clean things up.

  • Again, you’ll want to adjust the Brush size and pinch the screen to zoom in as much as you need to

Fitting In

We’re all on board for a summer travel photo edit, but…make it believable. Before you take another step, now’s the time to make sure your photo looks like it belongs in it’s new frame.  

  • Use the Blur tool to blend yourself into the background
  • Use the cursor to adjust the Brush size and zoom in if you need to 
  • Click the check mark to save your edit

Step into Your Light

This summer, there’s no need for you to find the right light. The right light will always find you thanks to AirBrush’s detail-oriented editing features.

  • Go to the Enhance tools

  • Then, use the Shadows feature to adjust the shadow levels
  • Next, head to the Highlight tool and give yourself a little glow
  • Remember to click the check mark to save your edit
