Adobe, on the 10th of January, unveiled a video regarding a new project that will enable the users to edit photos using a digital assistant.
The video released by Adobe showed a modified version of one of the Adobe’s photo apps that feature a microphone button, which activates a digital assistant, which further interacts with the user and helps them to crop, reframe and share the picture using only the voice commands.
The company said that it’s merely “a first step” towards a voice-based interface that will include a search function alongside editing tools, which clarifies their intentions, hopes, and aspiration from the project. At this moment, the project is very simple and aims at performing much more complex tasks other than just cropping and reframing.
For now, it is merely a concept but with the current trend towards digital assistants like Amazon’s Alexa, it is for sure possible that this concept may come to life and we may see some of Adobe’s photo-editing bots further ahead in future.
