Researchers Develop ‘Content Aware Fill’ for 3D Photographs

For many user who use Adobe’s Photoshop software, the “Content Aware Fill” tool has been a welcome addition in their arsenals of retouching tools. And while the vast majority of Photoshop users are editing 2D imagery, a partnership between Adobe and Brigham Young University has produced algorithms that’ll do with 3D images what Content Aware Fill does with 2D images.

BYU grad student Joel Howard and professor Bryan Morse worked with Adobe’s Scott Cohen and Brian Price to make the algorithm a reality. Adobe also provided funding for the project.

3D pictures are a pair of images of the same subject taken from slightly different angles.

This has led to many a serious reaction and discussion online about the benefits and pitfalls of the new model. But of course, this is the Internet. What’s a serious discussion if it’s not balanced out by a good old fashioned meme? And so, YouTube’s Evil Edison has captioned Hitler’s fictional reaction to the announcement. Be forewarned: it is quite vulgar at times. Read more…

Adobe Thinking About a Creative Cloud Bundle Geared Toward Photographers

Adobe caused quite an outcry from the photography community yesterday after announcing that its future software offerings will only be available through subscription plans to its Creative Cloud service. The main gripe was that the $50/month cost for all the programs in the CC suite–or $20/month for just Photoshop–didn’t make financial sense for independent photographers and smaller photo studios.

Well, the sound of grumbling has reached decision makers over in the San Jose-based company. In a post published on the Photoshop.com blog yesterday, the company revealed that it’s thinking about introducing special Creative Cloud packages geared specifically at photographers.

Adobe Shows off Its First Go at Hardware, The ‘Mighty’ Pen and ‘Napoleon’ Ruler
