Adobe has published a sneak peek video of a new feature that will make a lot of photographers happy. In an upcoming update of Photoshop CC, the selection process will become much easier. As a matter of fact, it will take you just one click to get the starting selection of your subject. Meet the Select Subject feature.
No matter which selection method you use, it’s still a painstaking process with some photos. Select Subject is an AI-powered feature, using their Adobe Sensei technology. The selections may still require some effort to get it done perfectly. But for that starting selection, the Select Subject Tool does a pretty good job:
It’s interesting that the feature works even if your photo has multiple subjects:
You can also use it in the Select and Mask workspace, so you can refine the mask edge:
This feature is designed to simplify the workflow of photographers and make it faster and more efficient. You can see in the demonstration video above how it works, and how close it gets to the perfect selection. Adobe hasn’t announced yet when exactly the Select Subject feature will be available. But whenever it happens, we’ll let you know. And we’ll all be waiting anxiously.
