Recently Adobe has made a tremendous update to Photoshop, including major creative features that are powered by Artificial intelligence machine learning technology, like Neural Filters, Sky Replacement, Refine Hair selection, and more. After this update, the company is calling Photoshop “The world’s most advanced AI application for creatives.”
In the article I will talk about “Neural Filters”, which are the highlight of this release (Photoshop ver. 22.0). They provide you, for example, with new artistic and restorative filters for improving portraits. The portrait features allow you to change where people are looking, change the angle of the light source, and “change hair thickness, the intensity of a smile, or add surprise, anger, or make someone older or younger. The amazing thing is that you can make them in just a click or two, and without any editing experience.
There are two “featured” filters and 6 “beta” filters at first, as shown below:
The featured filters
I am not going to explain how each filter is working because there is really nothing to explain and all the filters are fully automated, only very little interactions is required from you. It worth mentioning that most of the filters use the cloud to complete their processing, so you need to give it some time. I will give an example for each filter in order to realize its editing capability and the features it offers. Let us start!
There are two sliders “Blur” and “Smoothness” to control the skin smoothing.
The style filter contains 30 different styles, and you have options to determine the strength of style, brush size, and blurring the background.
When you choose the smart portrait filter a menu popup as shown below
It allows you to control the direction of your subject’s eyes
It allows you to copy the makeup of another photo to your subject.
