With the app, the user can take, edit and share photos using Photoshop features directly on the smartphone screen. The technical part is in the hands of AI Adobe Sensei, which is able to automatically identify what the person is trying to photograph, as well as apply the necessary changes when capturing the image, whether portrait, landscape, selfie or food photos.
AI can also understand the technical content of the photo, such as hue, dynamic range and face regions, for example. From this, Adobe Photoshop Camera automatically applies complex adjustments.
Another feature available is an Instagram Stories-style lens feed, including filters created by well-known artists and influencers such as Billie Eilish. As with Stories, users have the option to create their own lenses and share them with others.
