Adobe announced the Photoshop Camera application on Monday (4), with the goal of reinventing the way images are edited on mobile phones. The app, which works from Adobe’s artificial intelligence platform, called Adobe Sensei, offers Photoshop features during the moment of capturing the photo. Filters can be applied to images in the gallery and also directly on the smartphone’s camera, in real time.
Adobe Photoshop Camera seeks to simplify the photo editing process, which is more complex in programs like Photoshop and Lightroom, for example. For this, the tool is able to recognize elements in the photograph and suggest adjustments. The software is available as a sample for a few Android and iPhone (iOS) users, but the general public is expected to launch in 2020.

With the application, 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, in addition to applying the necessary changes when capturing the image, be it portrait, landscape, selfie or food photos.
AI can also understand the technical content of the photo, such as tonality, dynamic range and face regions, for example. From there, Adobe Photoshop Camera automatically applies complex adjustments.
Another available resource is an Instagram Stories-style lens feed, including filters created by well-known artists and influencers like Billie Eilish. As with Stories, users have the option to create their own lenses and share them with others.
It is worth mentioning, however, that not all functions are automatic. A settings section is available where the user can adjust details, such as shadows and exposure, manually. To sign up and access the trial version of the new app, simply access the form on the official Adobe website.
