Adobe Promises Photobombing Cure And 11 Other Mind Blowing Inventions

As part of its creative conference Max in Los Angeles, Adobe always has an evening session – Sneaks – where you can grab a beer and watch demos of some of the developments from its labs in beta, which may or may not be added to its Creative Cloud.

This year the event was hosted by US funny man Nick Offerman and Adobe’s Experience Design team community manager Kim Chambers.

This is a rundown of all 12 of the projects, with three sneak videos embedded. None of these prototypes are baked into Creative Cloud products yet, but if you make some noise, maybe they will.

We’ll add the other videos later in the week when they become available.

#MonumentMode

Taking pictures of landmarks and sites can be difficult, the more popular the location the more likely it is that people, vehicles, and other objects will get in the way obstructing your view. “Monument Mode” uses a new algorithm to distinguish moving objects from fixed ones, one-click and those obstructions are gone for good. If this tech preview comes to fruition, your tourist images will be beautifully without any other tourists.

#PerspectiveDollhouse

Inspiration can strike anywhere, and fortunately we’re all armed with devices that can capture those moments of inspiration when they occur. But captured images can fail to reflect inspiring perspective, until now…

#ProjectFaces

Can’t find the perfect font for your project? Then maybe you will just create it! “Project Faces” is a whole new way to think about tweaking, adapting, and creating fonts that perfectly reflect your message.

#3DPortraits

Photoshop can convert photographs to 3D images, but the process currently involves lots of manual steps. Adobe’s new early tech preview of 3D portrait technology smartly recognises facial elements, eyes and mouth and more, quickly and efficiently automating much of the process of turning photographs into usable, printable, 3D images.

#Louper

Searching for that perfect image isn’t easy. Between subject, backgrounds, colours, style, and more, finding the right search terms to locate the right image is a slow process of trial and error. “Louper” rethinks image searches allowing for fast and efficient image selection and search refinement.

#ByeByePhotobombs

Ah, Photobombs, the perfect way to ruin that perfect image. Over the years Photoshop has provided photographers and designers with powerful tools to remove unwanted artifacts and distractions, and its not done yet. Thanks to an artificial intelligence engine and lots of accumulated data, PhotoShop could make defusing photobombs a whole lot easier.

#DeepFont

Designers have thousands of fonts to choose from. But what do you when you see the perfect font but don’t know its name? DeepFont is a smart font recognition system, give it a picture of the desired font, and it’ll help with font identification.

#MaestroMotion

There’s something magical about that perfectly expressive animation. And until now, there’s also been a significant learning curve to even getting started with motion graphics. “Project Maestro” would let you use simple and natural touch to build beautiful and sophisticated movement right on your tablet device.

#LiveDataGrids

“Lorem ipsum”, text that is guaranteed to make your project proposal look incomplete and underwhelming. What you really want is a way to populate your creations with real data and examples. What you really want are live data grids. This is actually really cool.

#AudioRetargeting

Soundtracks add emotion and depth to movie sequences, Well, they do when tempo and rhythm match the scene and mood. Adjusting audio recording to fit the right durations is a manual and tedious process. Or rather, it used to be.

#ExtractShading

Manipulating images realistically requires that designers pay careful attention to lighting and shading. If only there was a way to extract shading from an image so as to be able to use it in another image?
