Soon you’ll use your voice to make basic edits in Adobe


Using an AI assistant to help you with various tasks, be it your phone, tablet or PC, is going to be a big deal in 2017. The players in the field are all pushing very hard to bring the best assistant to users around the world. Some of these voice-based assistants work, others don’t work quite as well. Adobe has however come up with something that users, especially those with no knowledge of editing tools (such as Photoshop), might find very useful.

By using your voice you’ll be able to apply basic edits to images. In the below video you’ll see a person instructing the AI to crop, flip and send the image to Facebook. It’s definitely nothing advanced, but it’s an idea of where voice instructions might be heading. There is a little problem for us here in South Africa as voice-based applications generally do not tie in well with our accent. If you’ve ever used Siri, Cortana or most other voice-based applications you’ll know that it’s a bit of a headache locally. So, while the concept is fantastic, we do hope that the various accents of South Africa will also be considered in the future.

Get a look at it below:
