Photoshop will feature AI to replace the sky
Adobe has unveiled a new feature in Photoshop that allows you to automatically crop out the sky in images to replace it with a different background. A tool called Sky Replacement is powered by the Adobe Sensei artificial intelligence platform.
The function will be available in the Edit menu item. You do not need a grabber to replace the sky, as the algorithm automatically detects the sky and overlays a new image on top of it as a separate layer.
Photoshop Product Manager Meredith Stozner said the algorithm is able to catch the difference between foreground and background. The user will only have to choose a background from the ready-made sets of "Blue Sky", "Breathtaking Views", "Sunsets", etc., or they can upload their own.
Users will be able to manually adjust the brightness, temperature, and scale of the new background.
Adobe has not announced when this new feature will appear in Photoshop, but more details are expected to be announced at Max's upcoming conference, scheduled for October 20-22.
According to The Verge, a similar tool has already been implemented by the creators of the graphic editor Luminar.
