Adobe held a media conference a few days ago to announce the new applications and new features that will be introduced in Adobe products at the Adobe MAX 2022 conference.
More advanced AI-driven masking – pick people, pick objects, pick backgrounds
Adobe introduced the Select Sky and Select Object selection tools last year. This time, they further added “Select People”, “Select Objects” and “One-click Select Background” to the smart selection function.
Reduce brush usage and speed up editing with Select People
The new “Select People” feature will make editing and retouching portraits easier and more convenient. Lightroom can detect individuals or groups in any portrait photo, select people in the frame, and automatically generate precise masks for users to choose. Users can also select specific body parts, such as facial skin, body skin, eyes, teeth, lips, hair, etc.
Use the “Select Objects” feature to select more precisely
The “Select Object” function is to automatically identify each object in the photo, automatically create a color mask, and allow users to immediately select the object they want to edit. Simply use the Brush Select tool to paint on the target object or use the Rectangle Select tool to draw a rectangle around it, and the AI will automatically refine the edges to create precise masking piece.
▲ Use the Brush Selection tool to paint on the flowers to create a mask
▲In the past, when selecting an object, you may select the part that is related to the object, but you do not want to select it▲ With the brush selection tool, just draw on the object, you can select the desired part more precisely
One-click background selection
In the past, creators needed to select the background by inverting the subject’s mask, but now Adobe’s artificial intelligence function can generate background masks with one click.
▲ Now Adobe’s artificial intelligence function can generate background masks with one click
Adobe applies artificial intelligence-driven presets to portraits. Users can use “Preset” presets to automatically enhance the overall effect of a portrait, such as brightening eyes, whitening teeth, and coloring eyebrows with one click or tap of the screen. Deeper etc.
A set of optimized presets for skies and subjects for mobile devices
Optimized presets allow users on mobile devices to tap into the power of artificial intelligence masks for skies and subjects, allowing Lightroom to create optimized masks based on detected image content with a single click.
Fix it with Content-Aware Removal
With the addition of Content-Aware Removal, it’s easier to fix or remove distractions in Lightroom. Using the same content-aware technology as Photoshop, Lightroom removes imperfections and adjusts the fill based on surrounding content. This feature also includes a Refresh option, and the ability to use keyboard shortcuts to select sample areas for finer control over restoration.
Continuously updated autofill material demonstrations
▲The content-aware filling function can now be automatically retried continuously. For example, a part of the picture is selected
▲If the content of automatic content awareness is not satisfied, you can keep retrying▲Retry until satisfied
Additional Product Updates to the Lightroom Collection
– Added the ability to fully edit photos in the “Compare” view in Lightroom for Win/Mac, allowing creators to easily edit images side-by-side. With the help of GPU acceleration, the speed when switching images and exporting is further improved.
– Left and Right Panel Swap: Users can customize the Lightroom Classic workspace to suit their workflow needs, with the new feature swapping left and right panels for all mods or just during development.
– The addition of Local Selection Adjustment Curves to achieve perfect tones for editing, now available in Camera Raw and coming to Lightroom in the future.
