Adobe Systems has just equipped its prototype smartphone camera app with a technology called monument mode. The technique will remove all the tourists from your photos by merging a few burst shots.
Adobe’s monument mode will analyze the video and remove all that is transitory in a shot, such as humans, cars, or animals, leaving the user with a cleaner view of the location he wants to record on camera. Technically, the app will allow customers to film famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal and so on, in a much cleaner way, by removing all humans that are visiting the places.
The camera app was presented this Wednesday in Los Angeles at Max, the company’s annual conference for producers, designers, digital artists and animators. Although not all Adobe exclusive features have been added into their software products, it is good to hear that some of them have become reality.
Adobe demonstrated the audience that Adobe is still the leading computational software producer in the world and that their creative juices are stronger than ever. The company has tried in recent years to adapt their software to smartphone by shifting their creative programs beyond desktop computing. This year’s Max conference proves just that, as the company’s new technologies all relied on smartphone devices.
The monument mode was not the only technology the company has presented. One technology was particularly amazing, it is a 3D technology that scans on’s facial features from a person’s pictures then creates a 3D model of that person’s head.
Another fascinating piece of clever software was Project Faces, which allows smartphone and tablet customers to create their own fonts by playing with a wide array of buttons and sliders. In Project Faces, users can change letters’ curves, with, boldness, tilt, they can add 3D effects, hand-drawn style. The final result can be saved as a ready-to-use font for tablets, as well as for personal computers.
Adobe even invented a photobomb removal tool which analyzes a picture and estimates what elements could distract a viewer from the main object. Then the customer has the ability to remove these objects by moving a slider.
A new Photoshop feature called extract shading can now analyze a picture’s lighting sources then isolate the shadows, which can be modified or applied to other picture.
Another useful piece of software called Project Dollhouse will analyze the lines of perspective in a picture and allow digital artists to create their drawings in line with that perspective.
