Leveraging Adobe Sensei intelligence, the app can instantly recognize the subject in your photo and provide recommendations, and automatically apply sophisticated, unique features at the moment of capture (i.e., portraits, landscapes, selfies, food shots), while always preserving an original shot. It also understands the technical content (i.e., dynamic range, tonality, scene-type, face regions) of the photo and automatically applies complex adjustments.”
