Photoshop for iPad nears feature parity with desktop app in latest update


An update to Photoshop for iPad has been released, bringing it closer to feature parity with Photoshop for Mac. New features include content-aware fill, background removal, subject selection designed for hair and people, auto tone, color and contrast, and an improved font browser.

Adobe has detailed all the new features on their Blog today:

Content Aware Fill

The Photoshop team has spent more than 30 years adding innovative new technologies to imagery, and Content-Aware Fill is one of the signature features of Photoshop Desktop. Today, we’re bringing that functionality to Photoshop on the iPad, with an easy one-click step that takes any selection and uses AI to fill its content based on its environment! Make distracting objects disappear from your background or blend artifacts smoothly. Remove unintended passers-by in your photos, remove artifacts and dust, and see what else our AI technology can do.

To use it, grab the lasso tool or one of Photoshop’s AI-powered smart selection tools like Object Selection to select an area, hit “Content Aware Fill” and watch your selection disappear. and blend into your image.

Remove background

One of the most transformative tools of recent times has been the power to remove the background from any photo, allowing you to take the subject and place it in other images, replacing backgrounds -plans by other scenes, etc. Photoshop led the way in producing the highest quality results through a combination of its patented subject selection and layer masking technology, allowing you to remove the background from any image seamlessly. destructive – without actually modifying the original pixels of the image.

We’ve brought this one-click action to Photoshop on the iPad to make your work faster and more precise. Swap any background or place your subject in another image seamlessly. Simply open your image and select “Remove Background” under the lasso tool or under Quick Actions in the right properties panel.

Select topic designed for hair and people

In addition to removing backgrounds, Select Subject technology is a key ingredient for selecting only the most important part of your photos – often people. With our 2022 update to Select Subject, our AI model can now identify photos of people, and perfectly select and refine small details like locks of hair and edges of clothing. These would otherwise take hours of precise selections to perfect.

Best of all, it’s all done with just one click. When Select Subject is used on a portrait photo, it will automatically complete all hair and edge refinements for you. Once selected, it’s easy to use masks and adjustment layers to quickly turn simple portraits into more stunning images!

Automatic tone, color and contrast
Some of the most common actions Photoshop users perform when opening a photo on Photoshop Desktop is to perform a combination of 3 commands – Auto Tone, Auto Contrast, and Auto Color. These commands will give you one-click solutions to correct tonal issues or color imbalances, so you can take the extra steps to adjust your photos and continue your work.

To use it, just tap on the automatic controls from the “Filters and settings” icon on the right side. Add a quick dose of Content-Aware Fill, and you can edit and remove objects from your photo in seconds!

There’s even more to the app this year! In addition to the one-click actions above, we’ve also added:

• Access to over 20,000 Adobe fonts directly from the text tool

• Rename your cloud document when editing it
