Adobe is launching a free AI-driven Photoshop Camera app, which is now available to some users as a restricted preview of Android and iOS devices. The camera uses Adobe’s AI platform “Sensei” to identify objects in the photo (whether it’s a landscape, food or selfie) and automatically suggests an image filter to apply. Filters can be used on-screen in real-time or on images are taken from the camera. The app will have filters for selected artists, and users in limited previews will be able to create their artists.
Adobe CTO Mr. Abhay Parasn told that, Verge that despite powerful applications such as Photoshop and Lightroom, users must first overcome the learning challenges of photo editing. Photoshop Camera is designed to simplify the task by automatically adjusting it in the viewfinder based on the technical content of the photo (such as dynamic range, hue, and scene type) so that everybody (not just a professional) can correct photo or edit. This is not to say that the app does not provide manual image adjustment for users to fine-tune photos and non-destructive editing – setting labels allows users to adjust details such as shadows, highlights, vividness, and exposure.
Mr. Parasn is writing in a blog post about the app that, the company developed Photoshop Camera as a Sensei priority app to extend focus and provide creative tools for everyone. At the time of launch, Photoshop Camera will select a selection of shots created by artists and influential people, and will also sign up for artists to customize the lens (Billie Eilish is an early partner with a limited edition lens). Similar to Instagram or Facebook story has its proprietary software Spark AR to generate facial filters, users can create photos for Photoshop Camera using Photoshop. However, the creation process should be much simpler because the filter is a layered PSD and can be adjusted directly in the application. Mr. Parasn also mentioned the latest camera improvements on the new phones such as iPhone 11 Pro and Pixel 4.
