Adobe Photoshop Camera is a camera app that features real-time AI filters. The app is initially announced in November 2019 along with Adobe Aero, another Adobe app to create interactive 3D designs And, after a month, the app is now available as an early preview on Android.
Adobe’s Photoshop Camera is now available for Android as an early preview. The app packs dozens of AI filters called Lenses which you can download from the store and try in real-time in the camera viewfinder or apply on saved photos. The lenses do share the name with Snapchat filters but these are not exactly the same. The Photoshop camera lenses are more artistic with an Adobe vibe to them.
Free Adobe Photoshop Camera App with Real-time AI Filters
To get the app, you can either sign up on the Adobe website and wait for an invitation (US-only), or you can grab the APK from APKMirror and try it right away. On the first launch, you have to sign in with your Adobe ID, similar to what you have to do with all the other Adobe apps. After sign in, it asks camera, audio recording, and location permission and opens the camera with a few pre-downloaded when granted.
Initially, the camera starts in the default state with a shutter in the bottom middle and an option to open the Lens on it’s left. Right to shutter, you get a gallery icon that opens your saved photos as well as albums. You can also pick a saved photo to apply filters on top of that. On the top, you can get options to switch cameras along with basic camera options and app settings.
You can expand the lenses by tapping the lens option and then select a lens to apply it in real-time. Each lens features multiple filters and you can cycle through them by horizontally swiping on the screen.
At the end of the lenses list, you get an option to add more lenses to the app. This takes you to Lens Library where you can browse new lenses and add them to your app. Currently, there are around a dozen lenses that you can download and try. You can also manage the downloaded lens and change their order as per your convenience.
This app also features basic color correction options that work with the saved photos. When you open a saved photo, it shows you options to change the brightness, saturation, sharpness, hue, etc.
Adobe Photoshop Camera is pitched as a camera app that allows you to take better photos by testing photo filters in real-time. Some filters work really well whereas some struggle to fit in the scene. Anyway, the app is still in early preview and it also depends on your phone as real-time filters need lots of processing power. The app is scheduled to launch publicly in 2020 and hopefully, it would get more lenses by then. Give it a try and share your thoughts with us in the comments.
