Adobe last week launched the Photoshop Camera app for both Android and iOS
devices for free. Well, this week, Adobe has introduced some new updates for
most of its Creative Cloud apps which include Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere
Pro, After Effects, Illustrator, and so on.
According to Adobe the updated apps offer major new functions, making it the
company?s biggest update to CC since the last edition of Adobe MAX, which was
back in October 2019.
Adobe Photoshop CC: Improvements and Key Updates
Adobe has improved the ?select subject? feature on Photoshop. After the update,
it now does a better job of isolating a face in an image. The already existing
?Match Font? feature that identifies fonts in an image, is also updated with
support for more fonts, vertical text, and multiple line-detection.
Features from Adobe Capture have also been added to the desktop version of
Photoshop. These features basically come handly while pulling out patterns,
colour themes and shapes from an image.

overhaul. HDR and panorama functions can now be called up via the menu and after
the update, the interface now supports DNG images taken with some iPad models.
