Photoshop introduces "neurofilters" for complex retouching using artificial intelligence

Adobe responded very quickly to the appearance of the LuminarAI editor and released its own update for Photoshop in response. The main innovation is tools called Neural Filters, built on the Sensei AI platform. Of the eight filters presented, six are still in beta testing, but Adobe decided to take the risk and hurry up so as not to miss out on market share.

Neuro filters are designed to create effects on an image that were not initially there, but after overlaying they should look like a natural part of the original image. For example, if we are talking about a photo of a person, you can add a smile to him, make his face angry or sad. For ease of use, neurofilters are presented in the form of sliders - the more you move the pointer, the brighter and more expressive the superimposed effect appears.

Since neurofilters are based on the work of AI, their range is limited only by the imagination of the developers. For example, the ability to transfer makeup from one face to another, artistic coloring of black and white pictures, removing glasses and skin imperfections from the face. Neuro filters can change the direction of a person's gaze in a photo, adjust scene lighting in a picture, and remove JPEG compression effects.

All types of retouching using neurofilters are reversible, they do not affect the original image. They can be applied both individually and in finished or new layers. Adobe clarifies that the expectations from the description of the effect may not coincide with the result, but this is normal, because the whole concept is still in the debugging stage. Feedback from developers and constructive criticism will help you optimize a practical novelty faster.
