In addition to new features in the various iPad apps, the Adobe package also contains AI-based tools.
In addition to offering tips and sessions on the use of its various programs, Adobe, the company responsible for the development of platforms such as Photoshop or Premier, has once again held its annual conference for artists, professionals and users, in which it places great emphasis on showing the main new features that will be incorporated into most of its suite.
This year's Adobe MAX 2022 conference focused on the introduction of AI-powered tools, along with new features for the various iPad apps and improved capabilities for working in virtual reality environments. Not to mention new tools to facilitate collaboration and improve the experience for business users.
One of its most used tools, object selection, has seen some interesting alterations in Adobe Photoshop, for example. When clicking on an object or subject, it is now easy to select and delete it using the Shift + Delete keys.
Photoshop for iPad has also introduced small new features that, until now, were only available in the desktop version. These include the ability to remove the background and the inclusion of Content-Aware Fill, a function that allows you to select a rough area so that Photoshop automatically fills in the rest.
Collaboration between Photoshop and Illustrator
A new mode of cooperation between Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator completes these additional functions. Specifically, these are two features: Invite to edit, which allows other users to access the editor and make remote changes to it, and Share to review, which lets users share and review files before publishing them.
The option for media to be instantly transferred to the cloud as it is filmed is another interesting feature of the interface between Illustrator and the Fujifilm and RED cameras.
Speaking of Illustrator, the design software now offers additional options for integrating text with 3D objects. In addition, the iPad app now has new features, such as gradient adjustment, Touch Enchancements, as well as a simple option to save or rename the file.
Lightroom gets new AI-powered features
Another tool in Adobe's suite, Lightroom, has received interesting advanced features that rely on AI technology. The potential for automatic selection of people is the most fascinating. Just activate the tool and select the subject. The rest is up to Lightroom. On the other hand, specific body parts can be selected, such as eyes, mouth, hair, nose, etc.
Now, a new tool has been developed that allows you to remove objects by simply drawing a line with your finger or mouse over a part of the object. Lightroom has the ability to recognize the entire region, remove it and add a background color. This method is also beneficial for selecting things more easily, thus avoiding manual selection.
On the other hand, Adobe Premiere Pro receives a small number of exciting new and intriguing features. Improved flexible alignment settings allow motion graphics templates to run twice as fast. Also included is support for the ARRI ALEXA 35 camera.
Adobe's suite gets additional new features
Small features have been added to programs such as Adobe Fresco, After Effects and Character Animator to help creators save time and produce more unique designs. For example, new transform and liquefy functions have been added to Fresco. Along with an unlimited brush history, there are new contour and jitter vector brushes. In addition, a function has been added to automatically generate color palettes from photographs.
A new motion library has been added to Character Animator, and After Effects has enhanced native H.264 encoding with new compositing presets and more than 50 new animation presets.
To enhance Substance 3D Stager's ability to generate and output 3D footage for use in virtual and augmented reality, Adobe has added Mac support for Apple Sillicon. A hybrid process can now be used to assemble scenes in Substance 3D Modeler. Specifically, integrating the use of the desktop version and virtual reality devices.
