I don't even know how to describe my reaction to this video. I used to spend HOURS doing precisely what this video claims the new Photoshop (schedule to release in mid-April) can do in SECONDS.


Mind = Blown.


Let me go change my pants.

Oh what?! Dude... I have to go put my eyeballs back in my head from bugging out...

That's awesome. I can't believe... you can actually do that as though it was a trivial matter? Just flat highlight it and it remove the item. Snap, it's done.
I'm getting chills already....Just "delete" lens flair and even that whole tree in mere minutes...no SECONDS? Like that?

W-wait...the program COMPLETED a surrounding custom edge border for a panorama of pictures by itself? Just like that? You have got to be kidding me... Excuse me while I pick up my jaw and sew it back on. I wish I had an excuse to go buy that. Wait till I tell my homeboy's wife about this, she's a professional graphic artist. She'll blow a gasket. This is amazing.

Sweet. Stalin would've loved this. Also,now all those porn monkeys won't have to spend so much time "creating" celebrity nudes. :xp: If it really works as seemlessly as advertised, faking evidence and whatnot will make the value of photographic "proof" much more dubious. Creatively speaking, though......bitchin'.

So now we can all do things without having to work. Digital art is dead. Creativity is dead.

I wonder what would happen if you tried t "remove" and "replace" a bikini on a model. I'm going to bed.

All this and more, for only the very low introductory price of $699!

But wait, there's more! Buy the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5 Master Collection for the amazing bargain of $2,499!


No thanks; I'll stick to GIMP. GNY 4 lyfe, y'all. :shades2:

Holy **** is that for real!? I wish I had that feature a couple of years ago because I could have some of my life back.

I saw this, had to pick my jaw up from the floor. No more pixel-by-pixel clonetool! \o/

A bit of digging around tells me that Gimp has had this feature for a while. Why on Earth haven't they advertised it? That's a HUGE selling point. I might have dropped photoshop for Gimp years ago if it could do that.

Also: I assume that Adobe is clever and is using photos that just happen to work very, VERY well with the new feature, but still! Incredible.

I'm impressed but I can't say I'm really surprised. I've always kind of assumed that some of the more tedious things could eventually be done by computers, provided they're mindless enough.

There are a lot of 3D modeling processes that I believe will eventually be automated, removing most if not all of the tedium that's involved now. They've already come out with a tool for ZBrush that UV maps a model in one click and supposedly does a pretty good job of it too. Eventually a modeler will be able to start with an armature, build a sculpture around that, paint a texture directly onto that, then press a button to automatically generate UVs, topology, etc. then use the original armature as the basis for an animation rig. ZBrush already does most of those things so we're not really that far off.

On a related note, ZBrush is actually cheaper than Photoshop, which is just.. baffling to me.

Very cool... also, as far as we're all concerned... GIMP and Photoshop are both "free".

fffffffffffffff

This is some kind of wizardry. Still a lot of debate on whether or not these videos are fake or not

Like I said before, I highly doubt they're fake considering Gimp has similar abilities. If they are fake.... they came out a week too early :p

Impressive, but people still aren't going to pay for it.

I did some digging around myself and found out the gimp plugin is called resynthesizer

see it in action:

I don't have time to try it right now but maybe someone else can test it and give us some feedback.

That was actually my first thought. My second was wondering who sold their soul to what in order to get the secret of such wizardry.

Wait, you mean for the past year that I have played with GIMP, it has had this function...and I've wasted all those hours doing fine pixel knitpicking?
...........Dammit! >_<
Meh, well, I needed the practice. :D

I've always assumed that the reason Photoshop is so damn expensive is because they know the only people who do pay for it are professionals, anyway.

I'd actually feel pretty sick if I pirated a program that I used on a day-to-day basis and earned a living off of.


Because, really... it's like they don't even try to deter the rest of us.

Yeah, they make most of their money on business and corporation licenses.

Pirated copies are actually beneficial to their business model (many would have never even been in the market for it had they not been using it for years illegally). To a point of course, Adobe banks on the idea that professionals and businesses will continue to buy their products and that the majority of illegal copies are used by amateurs.

So... it actually works very well. I tested it out by removing a roughly human-sized object from an image that had quite a lot going on, water, trees, a boat, all intersecting with the person. It made the change instantly (no "loading bar" as it figured stuff out, though the picture wasn't especially high-res or large, so this may be different for really high-res ones), and I only had to do it a few extra times on certain smaller areas that came out a bit strange looking.

All in all, it took about 2 minutes to make it look like the object had never been there, shadows and all, and I'm rubbish with keyboard shortcuts, so I'm sure some of you could do it faster. Keep in mind though that I'm not a professional photographer, graphic artist, whatever, and my standards are likely somewhat lower than those of you who are.

My cousin's husband works for Adobe.

I can get anything they make at employee pricing. :D

I just don't have a PC at the moment that could run any of these things. :( As soon as I do, I might take him up on it.
