Adobe Monument Mode erases annoying people walking into your scenic photos

Adobe Monument Mode erases annoying people walking into your scenic photos

Adobe's MAX conference saw the company demonstrate some of its still-in-development technology and software yesterday, and one of the most impressive was the feature called Monument Mode. Meant to run on smartphone cameras, the technology automatically removes walking people and moving objects from photos of landmarks and other scenes in real-time. The idea is the opposite of the kind of post-processing done in programs like Photoshop, instead removing obstructions before the image is even captured.

Photoshop Fix's primary focus is on editing and retouching photos, and making it easy to do for beginners.

Adobe details how NASA edits space photos

Those incredible space photos we see from NASA don't look that way fresh off the camera -- they're commonly composite photos composed of multiple images that were taken with different parameters and then heavily edited and adjusted during post-processing. That's not to say they've been altered in such a way that makes them fake, only more appealing to the eye.

iPad Pro has 4GB RAM reveals Adobe Photoshop Fix app

During Apple's big announcement of the iPad Pro yesterday, the company of course highlighted the mega-tablet's A9X processor and 12.9-inch retina display, but other specs were unfortunately glossed over.

Surprisingly this information comes not from Apple, but from Adobe's press release for their new Photoshop Fix app.

Adobe’s newest tech finds and removes distractions from photos

Researchers with Adobe and Princeton University have revealed new technology that automatically identifies distracting objects in photographs and removes them. Such abilities are nothing new -- photographers can manually edit photographs to remove objects using, for example, Adobe Photoshop.

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

When a company’s product so thoroughly corners a market that it becomes well-known even by those who have never used it, the company faces a problem: generic use of that product’s name. You’re likely to hear the term “dumpster” used generically, for example, as it is now a genericized trademark due to its common usage. Other trademarks have suffered the same fate — yo-yo, for example, and aspirin. Adobe doesn’t want its popular photo-editing software Photoshop to suffer the same fate, but it may be too late to stop it.

Amazon will start rejecting Flash ads next month

Amazon will start rejecting Flash ads next month

The Internet’s collective move against Flash — the frequently vulnerable software that increasingly has more downsides than up — just gained a big new ally: Amazon. The Internet retailer announced this week that it will soon stop accepting Flash advertisements, making it the latest company to gravitate away from Adobe's longstanding and much-maligned software. This announcement follows news earlier this month that Yahoo’s advertisements were used to spread malware that, ultimately, used vulnerable versions of Flash for success.

Study: Ad-blocking software use is rising at breakneck speed

Study: Ad-blocking software use is rising at breakneck speed

AdBlock and apps like it are the bane of ad-supported websites, and an occasional bit of browser extension-based guilt for users. On one hand, no one wants to deal with ads, at least not the poorly utilized ads found on many websites. At the same time, many users recognize that their favorite websites probably depend on those advertisement dollars, and so they may disable AdBlock for certain websites. Many ad-blocking users don’t bother doing the latter, however, and that makes a new report from Adobe and PageFair particularly worrisome for companies.

Yahoo’s ads spread malware via hackers, vulnerable Flash

Yahoo’s ads spread malware via hackers, vulnerable Flash

Yahoo was recently hit by hackers who used its advertisements to deliver malware to an unspecified number of visitors on several of its own websites, it has been revealed. The malware campaign carried on for a full 7-day week before Yahoo, having been alerted by the researchers who discovered it, took it down. Yahoo says it is investigating the matter, and though it has not revealed how many people were affected, it said through a spokesperson that the initial reports "grossly misrepresented" the scale of the attack.

Adobe fixed Flash’s zero-day flaws but it still needs to die

Adobe has pushed out a Flash Player security update to fix the latest critical vulnerability that garnered it attention today. This certainly isn't the first time Adobe has been forced to fix critical problems with its Flash software, but has spurred individuals and companies alike to call for the software's death. This update covers multiple versions of Flash player across a few platforms, but many in the industry still agree: it is time for Adobe to make its Flash Player fade away.
