Features include:

Fun With Filters: Apply Photoshop filters and effects with just one tap. With over 80 custom filters, it’s easy to swap them in and out and save your favorites to use again and again. The filter library includes: Portrait, Studio Light, Bloom, Pop Art, Spectrum, Desync, Food, Scenery, Natural Skies, Analog, Night Shift, Comic Skies, Interstellar, Dreamcatcher, Celestial, Supersize, Double Expo, Prism, Color Echo, Mixed Media, Blue Skies, Artful, and more.

Real-Time Photoshop Effects: Take a better picture with the magic of Photoshop and AI-powered editing.

Auto-Tone: Photoshop Camera gets “real life” right with no more extreme differences between areas of brightness and shadow.

Content-Aware Recommendations: Pick your shot and Photoshop Camera does the rest. It knows which effects to apply to get the best result, so there’s no more fuss when it comes to the right lighting and focus.

Portrait Controls (Bokeh, Face Distance, Face Light, Face Relighting): The Face Light feature in Photoshop Camera optimizes for lighting, eliminating the appearance of any sharp shadows (read: no more under-eye bags). For group selfies, Photoshop Camera recognizes where each subject is positioned so there’s no more distortion. And the Boken feature makes it easy to quickly apply blurring effects.

Influencer-Inspired Lenses: See yourself through the eyes of your favorite creators by using their custom-designed lenses. New lenses and effects are added all the time so there’s always something to discover.

Built For Social: Easily capture and share high-quality photos to your favorite social network. Use #photoshopcamera when you post and Adobe might feature you on their social sites.

The Photoshop Camera app is free to download with an in-app purchase of Creative Cloud Storage (20 GB) for $1.99.

MacDailyNews Take: Let us know what you think of Adobe’s new app below!


  1. I snapped it up. But quickly deleted it when they demanded my eMail address, specifically so they might send it to all of their affiliates in and out of the country.

  2. Corporates, please read: customers don’t want their name to be lobbed around for your gain, in exchange for a product/info that’s not worth the hassle.

    1. Yes, Affinity Photo professional software is on sale right now for half price, $25, NOT $24. Technically speaking, $24.99. 🤠

      JDa, what is an “artist” doing with a Photog (Photographer) program? Should you be using Affinity Designer (dumb and misleading name) if you are a true artist or illustrator?

      That said, highly recommend the Affinity software suite that EASILY and PROFESSIONALLY replaces Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Indesign for a minuscule fraction of the cost breaking the chains of the monthly Adobe Tax. See here:

      Adobe software lost its way and the innovation version upgrades have turned to unnecessary bloatware so they can simply generate a new revenue stream. When they switched to the monthly rental fee, abandoning you bought it, you own it and YOU DECIDE — if upgrades warrant additional purchases — I dropped upgrading like a bad habit…

      1. Well, we do not legally own AP but, yeah, it’s in our physical possession and, except for certain caveats, AP does not stop working unlike Adobe products should rental fees stop. The engineers at Affinity did and do a heroic job.

      2. A Designer is more for illustrators which I am mostly not while A Photo (like Photoshop) is more for painters which I mostly am. But my process can be multi-step: I may take a picture of a completed painting, open it in a digital darkroom program like A Photo, alter colors, move things around, add stuff, then print it on canvas, and finally add flourishes and enhancements over it as needed with acrylic paint to get the final finish. By this method, I can retain the original painting while making several digital/printed versions. I might even print on paper and have it laminated to get that slick sheen look of a restaurant menu and do stuff to it. Most of my recents have illusionistic layers which I produce in a program as well as real layers that are tactile that actually rise or float over the surface of the base layer.

        1. So, you are not a TRUE “artist” whether fine arts painter or illustrator. You retouch other artist works and sell it, is that about right, or I am wrong?

          Don’t get me wrong — not that there is anything wrong about that, great if it works for you and just trying to understand…

          1. No no; All of the steps I outlined, from beginning, in between, to the end are solely my ideas and creations. I deal with concepts and ideas. I am not a 9-5 jobber, you know, working for someone else. I am not a commercial artist or an illustrator for brochures and such; I show in art galleries who provide clients whenever I am in a solo or group exhibit. Therefor, by all definitions in the fine art world, I am known as an artist.
