Adobe has many impressive business software, and Photoshop is probably the most well-known among them. Although Photoshop is very powerful, users who are familiar with its use can complete any design or image editing work without any difficulty. Sometimes when only simple functions are needed, opening Photoshop, which is not small in size, is not a good option. Adobe recently introduced its new product on its Youtube channel, a photo editor tentatively named Project Stardust. It has many functions that photo retouching experts dream of, which is fast photo retouching with the assistance of AI. Its power is just like its name, Project Stardust, which is huge enough to destroy planets into dust.

This is not the first time that Adobe has thought of integrating AI with its own image editing software. Last year's Firefly AI is an example. This software tool can add functions to Photoshop, giving Photoshop the power of AI. Project Stardust currently seems to be just a gadget or small software. Judging from the operation method, it may even be designed based on the mobile app.

Adobe's new software Project Stardust is as powerful as the Death Star

Project Stardust is from STAR WARS. The Death Star, the massive fortress in the story, was called by this name when it was first considered a secret plan for the Empire. Judging from the demonstration of the software, Project Stardust does have the ability to grow into a "Death Star". Although object detection technology has been implemented for a long time, the way in which new objects can be inserted at will like in the video, or even "create" new components in a Midjourney-like way, is eye-catching.

▲The software interface allows you to drag files directly to the designated location for uploading and editing.

▲Click and press delete, and the suitcase magically disappears.

In the past, although Photoshop had powerful editing functions, it could not do everything. For example, removing the back of an object meant using a magic lasso to outline the appearance of the object stroke by stroke. This part can be said to be hard work and requires Be proficient in using software and have a lot of patience. Later, this step was gradually simplified. In the era of AI advancement, you only need to ask AI to help outline the appearance of the object.

Using AI-assisted photo retouching is no longer a new technology, it just depends on how each company plays and plays with it. Project Stardust has a similar feature to easily remove background information from Google Photos on mobile phones. But Project Stardust clearly has a better solution, and the picture looks very natural. For example, the suitcase in the example picture can not only be quickly circled, but can also be dragged around at will. The background data is accurately calculated by AI anytime and anywhere. It is like this picture suddenly has layers instead of merging the layers. .jpg

▲If you want to change your clothes or pants, enter the keyword

▲The clothes of the people in the photo changed immediately

In other demonstrations, interesting aspects were shown. The suitcase was made invisible, and instead, instructions were used to let AI generate flowers and automatically match the background without interfering with each other. Can elements located behind the subject be well recognized and remove irrelevant background figures from my photo? No problem, it’s done in a few clicks.

▲Flowers can be used with just one command

▲Background characters? They can all be driven away

Regardless of whether these functions require a certain level of hardware to perform, for art editors, photographers, and designers, these functions can be said to be very dreamy. Obviously, Adobe revealed the demonstration video at this point in time to pave the way for this software that only has a project name. The next step may be to reveal it at the Adobe MAX Creative Conference, and maybe this can eventually become a free tool in its own right, or an add-on feature in Photoshop, or other possible placements.
