As photographers and video creators we use post-production and editing applications like Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere Pro. During Adobe Max this year, they gave us a sneak peak of what’s coming, and these videos will show you what to expect.
We need to know what’s coming, and, whether it will affect your career or way of working. It has become easier and cheaper to make incredible changes to an image or video in post, and it will soon be even quicker to do by the looks of things. This could be great for us, but it will also make it possible for everyone to do it too. So, what will you do to adapt and make sure your clients come to you?
The Videos That Indicate the Future of Visual Media:
It will soon be possible to edit people into images. It’s been possible to do this in Photoshop with some masking and editing, but with the artificial intelligence called Sensei, they’re making it possible to do with a click of a button. This is great for travelers taking snaps, and it’s a little better than taking a selfie.
During your video editing process, it’ll be possible to search and edit certain similar sounds. This makes it possible to eliminate the “uhm” or “uuh” from your audio in one go. This is very usable and a great time-saver, and will make it possible to rather focus on the editing and making it creatively interesting.
This project is working on making it possible to change the lighting of your landscape images. If you’ve taken a shot in the harsh midday sun it’s possible to change and add more complementary shadows. It can use images you took, or it can use Adobe Stock to get a better idea of what the terrain and buildings in the shot is physically like, and make it possible change the angle of the sun in real-time.
This fixes amateur sound to make it more like something we will listen to. We’ve all had videos with terrible sound, and I’ve got a lot of personal projects that never saw the light of day due to the audio not being adequate. This will change that.
Soon it’ll be possible for Adobe’s AI to tell if an image has been edited or manipulated and even provide a heat map to show where it’s been edited. It’s Adobe’s approach to help identify real or fake images.
Adobe has been working hard and are focussing a lot on integrating their AI into their applications. I am excited and also curious to see how it will affect photography or video making in the future.
