Adobe Photoshop Camera, available for iOS and Android devices, is more than just a camera app for the iPhone and smartphones that work with Google’s system.
It allows you to unlock creativity in a simple and intuitive way, using a collection of lenses, filters and effects that can give a unique and magical look to the photos. Or just improve them.
With ease, we said, but also by exploiting the powerful capabilities based on Adobe’s advanced imaging and artificial intelligence technologies, among the leading companies in the field of digital image processing.
Let’s see how to start using Adobe Photoshop Camera for iOS on iPhone.
First, you need to access the app with your Adobe ID, or with your Apple, Google or Facebook account.
The interface of the app leaves a lot of space for the preview of the shot: it is like a big viewfinder and the presence of controls is light: the cards and the additional options become visible when we select the respective functions.
Below the centre is the classic circular button of the shutter, to be touched to take the photo.
To its right, the preview of the photos taken, which by default opens its own PsC Studio, the inner roller of Photoshop Camera. From here you can also access the device’s photo Roller, as well as an option that allows you to import photos from Lightroom, Adobe’s professional digital photography application.
The icon to the left of the shutter opens the bottom bar with the list of downloaded lenses that we can apply to the photo.
Of the top three buttons, the first one on the left is to open the objective library, which we see shortly. The central one provides access to some click options (such as the image report and flash) and Photoshop Camera Settings. The one in the upper right corner is used to switch between the rear and front camera of the device.
Adobe Photoshop Camera lets you import images from the iOS Photo Roller as well as apply a lens in real time when we take a photo.
You can explore the lenses that Adobe provides for Photoshop Camera users by tapping the objective library icon in the upper left corner.
When browsing the library, you can filter content by category and, for each lens, tap on Details to display a description and some examples.
The icon in the top left corner of the Lens Library screen opens the Lens Management screen, where you can manage, remove and reorder the already downloaded lenses.
The camera-shaped icon in the upper right corner leads back to the main screen.
When you find a lens you like, just a touch on the Add Lens button is in its tab to download it and make it available in your list of lenses.
To take a photograph with an effect that makes it interesting and original, go back to the shot screen. Here, if it is not already visible, first tap the Lenti icon on the bottom left to see the list of downloaded lenses.
You can select a filter from the list of lenses before clicking, so that you can see the effect in real time in the viewfinder and apply it directly to the shot. Just select the lens and frame the subject you want to photograph.
Thanks to Adobe’s artificial intelligence, filters are able to recognize some elements
But there is more. According to the subject, Adobe’s artificial intelligence You might also view a message in the viewfinder • Find a face • Find a sky • • Find a face • Find a face •
Most lenses offer multiple versions of the filter: you can scroll them with simple swipes to the right and left on the viewfinder screen.
As mentioned, by tapping the button with the three dots at the top of the center you can view an additional menu that allows you to change the proportions of the photo, set a timer for the shot and turn on, disable or set the flash automatically.
Also, always in viewfinder mode, tap a frame point to focus and display the display slider (move the slider up or down to adjust the exposure).
But these passages are not indispensable. If you like what you see in viewfinder mode, just a touch on the shutter button to take the photo, in the same familiar way that we use also in the iOS camera app.
Alternatively, if you don’t get it, you can tap the Cancel icon (the circle with the
Once you take a photo, you can find it in PsC Studio: from here you can edit and share it.
Adobe Photoshop Camera also offers several options for editing and sharing photos: we will explore them in a next article.
Let’s just make one last consideration here: Adobe Photoshop Camera, depending on the type of use, can be quite heavy in terms of using the calculation resources and the device battery.
