Grab it for free
Editor’s take: With its filter-heavy slant and AI features, the app is more geared for Instagram and other social media users rather than pro-level photographers. For more serious shooters, there are plenty of other alternatives to consider, both paid and free.
Adobe at its Max 2019 conference late last year announced a version of Photoshop for the iPad alongside a preview of a mobile app called Photoshop Camera.
The latter, billed as Adobe’s answer to Snapchat-style filters, has since shed its beta status and is available as a full-on release.
Photoshop Camera affords more than 80 custom filters, many of which were inspired by today’s top artists and influencers like Billie Eilish. You also get various portrait controls, an auto-tone feature that brightens up dark areas and tones down overblown sections of images and AI-powered editing.
Of course, if you’d rather not fool with manual tweaks, you can leave everything to the app. With content-aware recommendations, you simply pick the shot and Photoshop Camera does the rest by automatically selecting the effects to apply to generate the best results.
