Huge Photoshop Update Adds Neural Filters, Sky Replacement and More

You can learn more about all of these filters (and a few that are still “coming soon”) at this link. But the best way to learn about the new Neural Filters is to actually try them out, so update your copy of Photoshop now to give them a go.

Sky Replacement

Next up is a feature Adobe already teaser earlier this year: Sky Replacement. Using this feature, you can either simply Auto Select the Sky by itself, or use the built-in “Sky Replacement” option to select a new sky from Adobe’s database.

Refine Hair and Object Aware Refine

A less “exciting” (but probably far more practical) feature is the addition of two new tools in the Select and Mask workspace: Refine Hair and Object Aware Refine Mode.

Refine Hair is exactly what it sounds like: the button, now at the top right of the Select and Mask Toolbar, does the Refine Edge brushwork for you and attempts to intelligently select out your subject’s hair, even if they’re standing in front of a busy background. The goal, says Adobe, is to improve these features so much that any person can be selected out in two clicks: Subject Select + Refine Hair.

In short: today’s update to Photoshop shows that Adobe doesn’t intend to get left behind in the race towards AI-powered photo editing domination. Whether that future—where even the most complicated edits can be done by clicking a single button or messing with one or two sliders—is a good thing… that’s another question. But Adobe intends to be there when we find out.

To find out more about these updates, tune in to the “What’s New in Photoshop” session of AdobeMAX today from 2pm – 2:30pm ET, or head over to the Adobe Blog. Better yet, just update to the latest version of Photoshop through the Creative Cloud Desktop app and go exploring.
