Adobe shows off AI-powered subject selection, coming soon to Photoshop CC

Share Tweet

Adobe uploaded a sneak peek at a future update to Photoshop CC yesterday, and it's going to make a lot of people's photo editing lives a whole lot easier. Using its much-lauded "Adobe Sensei" artificial intelligence technology, Adobe is finally taking subject selection in Photoshop to the next level.

As advanced as Photoshop has gotten, cutting people out of your images—for whatever reason—is still an incredibly cumbersome process. Throw in some frizzy hair or a lack of contrast between subject and background and it turns into a full-blown nightmare. Enter a fancy new AI-powered feature called "Select Subject."

The tech "uses machine learning to detect objects in the image" and lets you get a nearly-perfect starting selection in "just one click."

What's more, this works with multiple subjects too:

Check out the video above to see the full demonstration. As with most of Adobe's AI-powered features that have been teased lately, the 'one-click' results are impressive. And unlike those features shown off at AdobeMAX, it's already in the works for an upcoming update of Adobe Photoshop CC.

No word yet on when exactly that update will arrive on your desktop, but we can't wait until it does.
