Selecting a subject to separately edit in an image can be a tedious task. Some photographers prefer complete manual control with the “Lasso Tool.” The “Quick Selection” or “Magic Wand” tools certainly help save some time. But what if you could select one or more subjects with a single click?
Adobe is teasing an upcoming feature called the “Subject Selection” tool, which uses machine learning to help automatically detect subjects in an image. The ability to identify subjects with a single click will undoubtedly revolutionize selective editing within an image.
The feature can even be used in the mask workspace to give the photographer control over edge refinement. The tool was developed as part of Adobe’s artificial intelligence engineering project called Adobe Sensei. With one click you can have a usable starting selection—talk about a time saver.
There’s no word yet on when we’ll see the “Subject Selection” tool incorporated into Photoshop. But in the teaser video, Adobe promises that the tool will be included in an upcoming Photoshop CC update. Until then, you’ll have to stick with the painstaking process of selecting subjects manually.
