Adobe Max 2020 has been introduced to bring “creativity for all.” Unlike the previous Max conferences, the coronavirus pandemic has practically forced the event to start this year. Adobe updates Illustrator all of its well-known apps, including Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere Pro, at the launch.
To extend its scope and increase innovation among smartphone users, the San Jose, California-based company has released new products, including Fresco, for iPhone and Illustrator for iPad. Under the Content Authenticity Initiative that it introduced at the Max conference last year, Adobe has also previewed a content attribution method prototype.
Adobe Illustrator updates for iPad
Illustrator’s release for iPad at this year’s Adobe Max is the most significant announcement for people looking for mobility solutions. The app is based on the core design features that desktop users have traditionally been provided.
However, with the incorporation of Apple Pencil support, Adobe has tweaked the experience specifically for iPad users. To ensure graphic design considerably more comfortable on the iPad, innovative features like radial, grid, and mirror repeat and18,000 fonts are included.
Adobe has also launched the new Recolour Artwork interface for Illustrator desktop users. With only one press, this addition brings the ability to adjust color themes. Several optimizations are available to have a cross-device experience, especially for users who choose to switch between their laptops and the iPad.
All Creative Cloud users who have Illustrator on their subscription will have access to Adobe Illustrator for iPad. Alternatively, at $9.99 a month, the app can be purchased independently.
Fresco updates for iPhone
Adobe has taken Fresco for iPhone to this year’s Max alongside the Illustrator app for iPad users. The painting app that was initially available for the iPad last September and launched at Max 2019 on Windows touch devices brings the same features previously exclusive to the iPad and the Windows platform. However, to make it usable on the smaller screen of an iPhone, the Adobe team behind Fresco has revamped the overall experience.
Adobe has also introduced text support to Fresco, in addition to the special care for iPhone users, to let you use your words along with your imagination. There is also an integration with Cloud Documents to provide iPhone, iPad, and Windows touch users with a seamless multi-device experience.
There is a free download of the Adobe Fresco app for iPhone users. However, package with Fresco for the iPad and Photoshop on the iPad, the premium features are available at $9.99.
Updates to Photoshop, After Effects, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and others -Adobe has launched lots of improvements to its items, including Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and After Effects addition to the introduction of Illustrator for iPad and Fresco for iPhone.
One of the significant improvements is the introduction of Adobe Sensei to offer a more in-depth experience driven by artificial intelligence ( AI) across all major apps. You will also receive Adobe Aero and XD augmented reality (AR)-focused modifications.
Adobe Photoshop gets a Sky Replacement feature with Sensei support that separates the sky from the foreground to let you change your image’s flavor. Neural filters are also available that use machine learning algorithms to provide image manipulation at the next step.
There is also a Discover panel that uses AI to offer customized feedback based on your work. To enhance your images, Adobe has also introduced Object Aware Refine Edge and Refine Hair options that both use Artificial Intelligence.
The power of Sensei is not restricted to Photoshop but is also available on Premiere Pro, where you’ll get a speech-to-text preview. To automate speech transcription from the video content, this can be used.
It can produce captions and subtitles as well. Similarly, Sensei-powered Roto Brush 2 has been added to After Effects, which selects and monitors an object, frame-by-frame, besides automatically isolating the subject. There are also new 3D Gizmos and enhanced camera software to making it more comfortable to create 3D visuals.
Adobe has also updated Lightroom with advanced color grading that takes the last Split Toning place and allows you to use different color grades to adjust your pictures’ toning. Keep in mind that Color Grading is entirely consistent with the current Split Toning.
There are unique updates in the case of XD and Adobe Aero to help you create immersive and interactive AR experiences. In particular, the new XD the update brings a 3D Transforms feature to add depth and perspective to your designs for user experience and add AR experiences to existing UI/ UX designs.
In-app live streaming is also being introduced to the iPad versions of Photoshop and Illustrator by Adobe. The feeling is close to what was delivered earlier this year to Fresco. It helps you to work or learn new tricks from your colleagues when remaining indoors with your team. You may also follow individuals, discover and share presets, and use Lightroom’s Learn and Discover to create a personalized feed.
Besides, Adobe has previewed the attribution feature prototype available in Photoshop in the coming weeks for some beta users and will be rolled out to other Innovative Cloud applications in 2021. This feature is intended to help combat online exploitation of deceptive content and provide users with ways to help recognize falsely produced images and defend their creations from misuse by bad actors.
