Adobe has launched the highly-anticipated Photoshop Camera app, a free camera application that uses smart technology to intelligently suggest to users which filters, effects and edits would best improve their picture.
The Photoshop-powered camera application first announced last year, which utilizes intelligent technology to decide "the best lenses and filters for your photos," finally launched this week on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
In addition to having a series of original filters -- some created by notable artists and influencers -- to scroll through and select before taking a picture, such edits can be altered and changed afterwards, too.
Copy and paste the real world with your phone using augmented reality
Finally, a practical use for AR that isn’t just shoppingAs this awesome demo from developer Cyril Diagne demonstrates, AR can be the perfect tool to quickly grab visuals from the real world and paste them into digital documents. Just point your phone at what you want to copy, and drag it over to your desktop. No fiddling around emailing images to yourself or cutting out objects in Photoshop. Forget it: your homework / mood board / dumb meme involving your pet’s stupid face is already done.
The app gives users access to quick fix tools like portrait relighting and distortion removal, as well as manual editing tools to help them bring a particular vision to reality.
An Auto-Tone tool helps prevent an image's highlights and shadows from being too extreme, while the Content-Aware Recommendation tool will automatically modify the camera's settings so the subject is in focus and the lighting is accurate to real life. Portrait Controls are tools that help users take their best selfie no matter the lighting conditions or background.
The Adobe Photoshop Camera app is available for download now for iOS and Android devices.
Adobe Photoshop for iPad gets better at selecting objects with complex edges .
Photoshop’s Refine Edge Tool is a godsend if you need to select and crop objects with complex edges, such as people with curly hair, flower petals or animals with fur like dogs. Now, Adobe has brought the feature over to the iPad version of its photo—editing app, giving you a way to refine the borders of tricky selections. It will make changing or removing a photo’s background much easier using your fingers or an Apple Pencil. Adobe says it tweaked the interface a bit for the iPad, but the feature works just like its desktop counterpart.
