Adobe unveils new AI-powered Photoshop Camera app

Today, Adobe has announced its new AI-powered mobile camera app, Adobe Photoshop Camera, which will allow users to capture, edit and publish photos much like its computer software counterpart. The new app is now available as a preview on iOS and Android phones but will be generally available in 2020.

Photoshop Camera will be powered through the artificial intelligence (AI) gathered through Adobe Sensei, its existing AI platform and framework. Photoshop Camera will allow users to capture, edit, add filters and share pictures straight from the app, and Adobe Sensei will automatically recommend edits to uploaded photos. Sensei’s platform will instantly recognize what type of photo was taken (portrait, landscape, selfie, food shot, etc.) and which technical settings could be improved.

“We built Photoshop Camera as a Sensei-first app on our journey to expand our focus to deliver creative tools, including Photoshop, for everyone. With Photoshop Camera and Photoshop Express, we’re increasing your choices for creating with the magic of Photoshop,” wrote Abhay Parasnis, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Adobe.

Exclusive to the app are lenses that were designed by celebrities and well-known influencers, which will continue to rollout as more personalities get involved with Adobe. To launch Photoshop Camera, Adobe has partnered with singer Billie Eilish to create her own collection of limited-edition lenses.

“Photoshop Camera is a major moment for us to broaden Adobe Creative Cloud as a creativity platform for all. We are committed to investing in accessible tools like Photoshop Camera built for the next generation of consumers and creatives. Innovation and pushing the limits of creative expression have always been core to Adobe’s DNA,” finished Parasnis.
