Adobe Launches Photoshop Camera Free for Android and iPhone

Photoshop Camera, the new free app from Adobe, is chocked full of filters for selfies, food, and scenery snaps. It also has AI-powered features that make your shots look even better than ever.Adobe are bringing their Photoshop effects straight to the point of capture by allowing users to navigate through filters while taking photos, instead of the need to take them into post-processing apps, and software. It gives app users the ability to make quick fixes such as portrait relighting, and removing distortion from images. 

It's likely going to make a big, and sudden impact on social media as the easy access filters are right there at your fingertips. Adobe are also introducing Photoshop lenses on the platform which are created by featured artists, and influencers from around the world, including Billie Eilish, apparently. You'll also be able to publish photos straight from the app. The filters are non-destructive, no you're able to change your mind after-the-fact if you don't like what you originally captured.

"including Photoshop, for everyone." - but only of you use one of their 'approved' devices. So it isn't.
Must be some law against such 'fake' claims.
Huawei very noticeably absent. Presumably at Trump's behest.

Literally 3 brands listed for android. Most of Samsung's line isn't included either, and past Pixel phones are left out.

Are you a paranoid android?

I don't see any connection to Photoshop with this app. I have used Photoshop since 1997 to enhance my photos so they look their natural best. This app seems to do artsy gimmicky stuff with your photos. Nothing wrong with it but they should have called it something like "Photo Novelty by Photoshop." The few things they have sliders for in general photo optimization, which I suppose are the most aligned with what tools Photoshop has historically offered, are all already available in Apple's native retouching tools.
