Step One: We Need A Moon

We could spend weeks planning the perfect full moon picture, carefully monitoring the moon’s cycle. Or we could use the Background Tool.

  • Here you’ll find a vast collection of preset Backgrounds to create your own masterpiece.
  • For our purposes today we’ll be using the Custom Background feature to upload the perfect full moon.
  • Make sure to save a full moon image on your phone then tap the Custom feature to upload.
  • Most images will need a bit of fine tuning  to eliminate any color borders, spaces in between arms & legs, etc.
  • Tap the white icon on the bottom left of your image to open the Select Area feature.
  • Adjust your Brush Size by adjusting the center toggle. 
  • You can then zoom in to the area you need to select or erase.
  • Begin swiping across the space.
  • Tap the check mark to save your edit.

The Finer Things

  • Now we’ll need to make some adjustments. Open the Adjust Tool by tapping the white icon on the bottom right of your image.
  • Here you’ll be able to make all sorts of changes to make your new image as realistic as possible.
  • Start with the Blend Feature to color match your image.
  • You can then use the Edge Tool to remove any color borders left from the original image.
  • The Brightness Tool allows you to increase the light on your focal point without affecting the Background.
  • Using Blur on your Background gives the image depth and makes sure it’s super believable.

Twirl, baby, twirl

Setting full moon intentions can be magical.. Let’s give our edit some witch treatment.

  • You can drag the orange circle to wrap around your focal point.
  • Once you’ve got it in the right spot you can drag the orange arrow to expand or shrink the image.
  • Finally, use the center toggle to adjust the strength of the Prism Tool.
  • Tap the check mark to save your edit.
