Adobe comes with a Photoshop Camera app for Android and iOS. The app contains various filters and effects. These filters can be added to photos in real-time or afterward. The app is free and is expected in 2020.
The Photoshop Camera app uses an AI framework that should automatically suggest filters and ‘lenses’. According to Adobe, artificial intelligence recognizes various photo subjects and then makes a suggestion for an effect or filter. These filters can be used in real-time while taking a photo. They can also be added to a photo that was previously taken.
The camera app should somewhat automate the functions of software such as Photoshop and Lightroom for less experienced users. According to Adobe, the app can adjust things like the ‘dynamic range’ and ‘tonality’ of a photo. Manual adjustments to photos are also possible. This gives the app a separate section where users can adjust the lighting, contrast, highlights, and shadows as desired, which appears to be comparable with apps such as Lightroom Mobile and Snapseed.
The app also gives users access to lenses made by artists. Billie Eilish, for example, has its own lens for the app. It is not known whether these filters will be free; maybe it will be in-app purchases. The concept of lenses is not new; Both Snapchat and Instagram Stories contain similar effects.
Users can now register for an early preview version of the app. Adobe hopes to release Photoshop Camera in 2020 for free for everyone. Earlier on Monday, the company announced a Photoshop version for iPad.
