Last November, Adobe announced an upcoming app called Photoshop Camera, powered by the company’s Sensei Artificial Intelligence, which would automatically apply effects to your photos before and after a picture is taken.
Adobe released Photoshop Camera in the App Store and Google Play on June 9th, bringing the free photo app to the masses.
The company says Photoshop Camera can “instantly recognize the subject in your photo and provide recommendations, and automatically apply sophisticated, unique features at the moment of capture (i.e. portraits, landscapes, selfies, food shots), while always preserving an original shot.”
The app can also take technical content into consideration, such as dynamic range, tonality, scene-type, face regions in a picture, then apply “complex adjustments” automatically.
For Billie Eilish fans, there are also limited edition lenses created by the singer.
In a nutshell, it’s a turn-key photo app that uses AI for your pictures, either for before, during and after. To use Adobe Photoshop Camera, you need to sign in with an account, but thankfully Sign In with Apple is supported for iOS users, eliminating the step to register. The app does ask you for your birthday, however, if you choose to provide the real date.
A quick test with a picture of strawberries from our Camera Roll resulted in Photoshop automatically applying a food filter, so it does have some smarts. So far, early reviews of the app seem to be positive in the App Store and Google Play.
