Adobe has unveiled a new camera app for iOS and Android devices at the Adobe Max 2019 conference. Called Photoshop Camera, the app allows for live application of filters, effects, and scene adjustments by leveraging the company's Sensei AI platform. Photoshop Camera is now available as a limited preview with official launch expected in early 2020.

At the Adobe MAX 2019 event, Adobe introduced a new camera app for iOS and Android devices called Photoshop Camera. The new app leverages Adobe's AI platform, Sensei, to recognize objects in the viewfinder and automatically suggests the best suited image filters and camera settings. 

Adobe is pitching Photoshop Camera as a Sensei-first app to simply photo composition directly from the viewfinder. Photoshop Camera will be able to recognize the scene's dynamic range, tonality, and type, and suggest appropriate filters to further enhance the scene or add cool creative effects. It also allows post-capture adjustment of shadows, highlights, exposure, etc. 

The company is inviting Photoshop artists to create unique filters and lenses for the app. Music star Billie Eilish is already onboard and Adobe will be including limited-edition lenses inspired by her songs and music videos. Photoshop Camera will not be replacing the default camera app or other Adobe mobile apps such as Lightroom. Instead, it aims to complement existing offerings by offering neat features such as auto-masking and adding bokeh effects.  

With Photoshop Camera, we could finally have an app that can harness the AI capabilities of modern smartphones more effectively compared to inbox camera apps. All the AI happens locally on the device so user privacy is respected. Along with this, Adobe is also cognizant of the use of AI to alter reality and will be introducing tools that use machine learning to detect whether a photo has been manipulated or not. 

Interested users can sign up here to try out a limited preview of the Photoshop Camera app. Official rollout is expected sometime in early 2020.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
