Adobe MAX is back and it's packed with many cool announcements to your favorites Adobe products. We were very fortunate enough to be part of the communications and the new updates coming to Adobe Photoshop really caught my attention. Photoshop has been part of my toolset for more than a decade and it's always great to see the new features. Including now in beta, Photoshop right in your browser. Woah! Here are some of my highlights coming to Photoshop Desktop app, iPad, and the Web.
Adobe MAX Announcement (In their words)
Hover Auto-masking Object Selection Tool (Desktop)
The Object Selection Tool has been significantly improved. Now, just hover over the object you want to select in the image and a single click will select it.
New Neural Filters (Desktop)
In Neural Filters we introduced the concept of “beta” filters, along with new feedback tools for customers to tell us how the results satisfied their creative intent. We want you to try out these featured and beta filters on your images and share your feedback to improve Photoshop. Beta filters might work really well on certain types of images, and not as well on others, but this is only the beginning and these filters will improve with input.
Match the color and tone of an element on one layer to another layer using the machine learning magic of Adobe Sensei. The Harmonization Neural Filter saves time creating flawless, realistic composites by intelligently adjusting the hue and luminosity for the look you want.
Photoshop on Web (Beta)
Over the past year, we’ve made key advancements in Photoshop to support mobile and collaborative workflows; things like enabling you to store PSDs in the cloud so you can work on a single document across all your devices.
Last February, we added the ability to create and share links to PSDs stored in the cloud so you can co-edit them with your collaborators and share them for review and comment via the web. Today we are shipping the ability to read, create and respond to these comments in a new commenting panel inside Photoshop on desktop and iPad, a big time-saver.
Thank you to all our customers around the world who use Photoshop to create beautiful images. You are our inspiration.
