Following its earlier announcement, Adobe has released its Photoshop Camera app for iOS and Android smartphones. Don’t be fooled by the ‘Photoshop’ element of its name, however, its not intended for making precise edits to images, it’s primarily designed as an image-capture app.
The free app offers a series of ‘lenses’ (aka filters) that give images a particular look. However, as you might expect, the effects brought by the lenses can also be applied to images that have already been captured.
When you’re shooting, the uses Adobe Sensei technology to apply real-time effects to your shots so you can preview the impact of the selected lens before you capture the image.
There are over 80 filters available and their impact can be customised. Adobe makes it easy to swap between effects and save your favourites for future use.
The filter library includes: Portrait, Studio Light, Bloom, Pop Art, Spectrum, Desync, Food, Scenery, Natural Skies, Analog, Night Shift, Comic Skies, Interstellar, Dreamcatcher, Celestial, Supersize, Double Expo, Prism, Color Echo, Mixed Media, Blue Skies, Artful, and more.
You may not be surprised to learn that the image at the top of the screen was taken using the first of the five Pop Art lenses.
Photoshop Camera is also able to recognise the subject and suggest which effects you may wish to apply.
