Adobe Photoshop has always every photo editor’s dream tool and continues to be so for good reason. One of them is its wide array of editing options, another is its inclusion of a new AI-powered selection tool. The machine learning AI-powered tool was teased back in November 2017 and is finally coming to Adobe Photoshop CC. A selection tool helps you select the outline of the subject or rather the subject itself which you want to focus on editing. This can be done in a number of ways already but neither of them are perfect.
Having machine learning behind the selection of the subject results in a tool which you could rely on. Adobe has even released a demo of how the AI-powered subject selection tool is likely to function.
The tool, “Select Subject” makes use of Adobe’s Sensei AI to comprehend what you want to be selected. While it may not be exactly perfect, it is quite accurate and even works with multiple subjects in the same frame. This is by far the best selection tool that Photoshop has ever had. In addition to this Photoshop is also looking to improve its High DPI support to allow for better UI scaling.
The update is already rolling out to Photoshop users. If you happen to use Photoshop, keep your eyes peeled for the inclusion of the “Select Subject” tool. If you’ve given it a try do let us know what you think of it in the comments section.
