Photoshop Camera is an Adobe product designed to give you image editing capabilities as you take a photo, as well as tools to improve the image afterward. It takes some of the features of Photoshop and puts them into a camera app so that you can do it all in one place.
Lenses, filters, and more
Photoshop Camera feels more like a way to experiment with the images you upload to social media than a serious photo editing tool.
This app includes editing tools, but it also accesses your phone’s camera. That means you can apply a selection of creative lenses as you take the photograph. Adobe is gathering lenses from a range of creative professionals. The results are great looking images without any post-production work.
The app will automatically be able to recognize the kind of photo you are taking, portrait, landscape, food, and so on. This will give you different options, for example, changing the sky in a landscape picture. You can also edit photos after they have been taken, with a range of Photoshop-style tools.
You will be able to add filters, animations, and 3D objects. As these are updated the app could transform into something with a more groundbreaking and professional feel, but it comes across as something aimed at stylized social media images as it stands.
There is certainly space in the market for a quality camera and photo editing tool that gives flexibility and creativity. This app makes up for the less advanced editing capabilities by being easy to use. There effects and tools won’t take long to master, but the result will look like some serious editing work has occurred.
