Adobe is working on a new feature that will make it possible to create composite images with just a few clicks. During its latest round of Sneak Peaks for experimental features, Adobe unveiled Project Clever Composites, which uses AI and automation to quickly combine two images together. If you want an image that shows you in front of a tourist spot like the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you’ll need to crop your photo from an image and crop the edges. Then, after you’ve pasted it in front of the background you want, you still need to adjust the lighting, scale, and color to make it blend seamlessly. Clever Composites can do it all on its own.
Its AI can identify objects that can be used for composites and it can automatically crop them, adjust their color and size when you click the Auto Compose button. The AI can also automatically create shadows for the object based on the background lighting. However, there are also options to remove the autoscale and add shadow features if you want to do them yourself.
Another notable experimental feature is Project Blink, which can save you valuable time when editing videos. The tool uses AI to make videos searchable based on their transcripts, allowing you to search for “specific words, objects, sounds, or even types of activity.” After you select the part of the video you want to use, the AI will automatically create a new clip of that section. Blink is already in beta and you can request access on the Adobe website if you want to try it out.
Meanwhile, Project All Of Me “uncrops” images, using AI to create parts of the photo that aren’t actually there. It simplifies creating larger images from smaller ones, or creating the same photo from a different angle. Adobe has also introduced a number of other features being developed for video and immersive content, including Project Artistic Scenes, which uses AI to transform 2D graphics into 3D scenes. You can read about all of them on Adobe’s blog or watch the MAX Sneaks event right here.
