Adobe is launching a new app today called Photoshop Camera that’s filled with a bunch of very elaborate filters that can change your face and the world around you.
Adobe Photoshop has been a one-stop-shop for most digital photography enthusiasts since forever. Last year, Adobe announced its plans to bring the magic of Photoshop to smartphones, besides launching Photoshop for the iPad. While Adobe already has a large number of mobile apps, some of them with the Photoshop branding, there’s something distinctive in this one.
Titled ‘Adobe Photoshop Camera’, the app is now available as a free download on Android and iOS, months after being available in a limited beta. Adobe believes its new app has a lot more to offer than your usual photo editing apps on mobile devices. Adobe Photoshop Camera is powered by the company’s AI-powered platform called Sensei that does all the magic.
Internet creators rely on various photo editing apps to make their content stand out. However, not everyone is comfortable spending a lot of time on complicated apps. Adobe Photoshop Camera promises to automatically fine-tune your photos and make them look extra special. The app can automatically decide the best settings for your photo, while letting pro users manually adjust them as per their taste.
Adobe’s Photoshop Camera app doesn’t substitute Instagram or Snapchat for creators. Instead, the app is a bridge between the smartphone camera and the social platform of their choice. Adobe feels you will end up with better-looking photos if you use the Photoshop Camera app to edit them.
At the heart of all this magic is Adobe’s Sensei platform. The AI-driven platform doesn’t just power the Photoshop Camera app, but it also enables a number of useful features on its suite of multimedia editing apps on the desktop. Capturing a great photo will still require some photography skills. But after that, a smartphone app can handle just about everything.
Adobe Photoshop Camera app allows developers to create their own lenses. You can selectively download and install these lenses within the app. Each lens offers a number of variations, which can then be further customised based on users’ preferences.
We’ve been playing around with a beta release of Adobe Photoshop Camera for almost a week now. The free photo editing app lets users shoot and edit photos, apply Photoshop effects and AI filters on the fly.
You can shoot new photos, edit them, or apply lenses to them. You can also edit existing photos you’ve shot using your smartphone’s native camera app. While the app remains free, Adobe does offer its cloud storage plans as an in-app purchase within the app.
