Last year, I provided a tutorial to recreate the “Woman in Red” image used in the App Store and on the Percolator website. Percolator 2.3 now includes this image as a built-in example, making it easy for anyone to recreate.
In that tutorial, I discussed how the source image has transparency. This important step is not obvious if you are loading the example from within Percolator. Or, if you’ve seen the tutorial, you are like some users who don’t own Photoshop, or even a desktop computer!
So, I put together a new video tutorial to show you how to add transparency to your images using just the iPhone or iPad. I use Adobe Photoshop Touch for phone in the tutorial. Have a look:
Important: Adobe has another Photoshop app, Adobe Photoshop Express—which does not have the features you’ll need. If you’re buying an app, make sure it is Adobe Photoshop Touch for phone

I’m not kidding when I tell you that once you start playing around in Percolator, you’ll never look at pictures in the same way again.— Chris Pirillo
Percolator is an excellent and fun diversion from the large number of vintage and toy camera apps in the App Store. It’s a unique, well-done modernist app with a fun retro wink.— Life In LoFi: iPhoneography

Even if you aren’t a professional designer or photographer, you can easily create some off-the-hook stuff to share with the world.— Chris Pirillo
