Adobe's Photoshop for iPad gets a new Select Subject feature and more
What you need to know
- A new update for Adobe's Photoshop iPad app is rolling out.
- The update adds support for a new Select Subject feature.
- The update also adds other changes to the mix.
Adobe has a new update for Photoshop for iPad out, and it brings the promised Select Subject feature to the tablet. The update is available to download from the App Store now (opens in new tab).
While there are some other changes as part of this update, it's the Select Subject tool that is the most interesting. It promises to make it easier and quicker to make detailed selections within an image and Adobe says (opens in new tab) (via 9to5Mac) that it's all made possible thanks to machine learning. Because nothing is possible without machine learning anymore.
The addition of Select Subject gives the iPad version of Photoshop another feature that has been available on Mac for years. And Adobe says that the iPad version of the tool is the same as the one that's used elsewhere – this isn't a watered down version of Select Subject.
Other changes as part of this update include performance improvements when using Cloud Documents as well as speadier handling of large PSD files, too.
You can download the fully updated Photoshop for iPad from the App Store (opens in new tab) right now.
