The company announced this new app today, detailing how it makes use of artificial intelligence to make advanced photo editing accessible to anyone with a smartphone. This app will not replace Photoshop for the professionals, even on mobile devices, but it does bring a remarkable set of features.
How it works is that you simply take a picture and the application will almost instantly analyze it and offer a whole array of potential enhancements — from basics like shadows and highlight tweaks, to more complicated things like swapping out the sky in a complicated cityscape.
See for yourself:
Photoshop Camera works its magic by recognizing what is in the photo, and then serves up the most relevant lenses up to the top. These lenses are filters, quite similar to the ones that you see in other popular apps.
All these lenses and effects are non-destructive, meaning you can easily roll back any changes that the application makes.
Powering the AI is years and years of data.
Adobe, obviously, is in possession of hundreds of millions of photos in its stock photo collection, along with the data on which of these photos people tend to buy and use. All this information helps the artificial intelligence technology in Photoshop Camera identify images and apply tweaks.
The only catch is that this amazing new app is going to be in preview mode until sometimes in 2020.
