Within photographic editing and retouching, Adobe Photoshop is the most complete and professional program that we can find. This software, developed and maintained by Adobe, has been with us for more than 30 years, specifically since 1990. And, in all that time, almost every year it has been receiving updates with new functions, tools and new features. Now, with 2022 just around the corner, Adobe has released a new version of its Photoshop. And this one comes full of news, especially in relation to Artificial Intelligence.
The new Photoshop 2022 has arrived to make editing work easier for users. Among its novelties we can find improvements in the automatic selection of objects, in the creation of masks, new gradients, improvements in the connection with Adobe Illustrator and a fair amount of stability improvements and bug fixes.
But, of course, what we like the most about this new version of Photoshop is the news related to Sensei, the adobe neural network which allows us to make modifications using AI. Let’s see them.
New filters with AI in Adobe Photoshop 2022
Filters with AI, called «Neural Filters«, Were launched last year. These filters make use of Adobe Sensei, an Artificial Intelligence system developed by the company, to help us carry out all kinds of non-destructive edits and modifications on our photos.
These filters initially arrive in the program under the label of “beta” until they are thoroughly tested and are considered to be completely ready for use in production. In this way, with this new version we find three new AI filters:
- Landscape Mixer (Landscape Mixer): Create completely new scenes or concept art images in one moment by combining two landscape images.
- Color transfer: Starting from a reference image, with this new neural filter we can pass the color settings from a base image to any other to give it a similar touch and palette.
- Harmonization (harmonization): allows us to match the color and tone of an element in any layer of an image with another layer.
Adobe has also greatly improved existing functions that make use of neural networks. For example, the filter depth blur (Depth Blur) is now much more natural and keeps the subject much better in focus. Also the function of superzoom now able to work on the whole image, the filter style transfer It has been trained from scratch to improve its accuracy, and the Colorize filter is now much more accurate when it comes to coloring black and white photos.
