Adobe Photoshop used to be an application that only serious graphic designers and photographers would dare to touch.
But with Monday’s release of Adobe’s newest iPhone and iPad app, Photoshop’s powerful editing tools are more accessible than ever before.
The app is called Photoshop Fix, and it’s completely free to use. It’s a pretty good photo editor with tools that allow you to easily remove unwanted objects or brighten up a specific part of an image.
But where the app truly excels is its ability to completely warp your face beyond recognition.
Adobe’s first demo of Photoshop Fix stirred up a bit of controversy for the way it showcased the app’s facial restructuring abilities. During a showcase of Photoshop Fix running on Apple’s new iPad Pro, Adobe used the app to make a photograph of a female model have a fake smile.
“Why is that a problem? A man telling a woman to smile or “smile more!” is highly and widely-regarded as a form of harassment, and a line many women find uncomfortable and inappropriate,” Tech Insider’s
Madison Malone Kircher wrote in response to the demo.
I’m no model, but I did play with Photoshop Fix to see how drastically I could change the way I look.
And the results were impressive.
Select 'Face' and the app will automatically add nodes to your face, which starts the editing process.
These kinds of face editing apps aren't new to the App Store, but Photoshop Fix is the first I've used that feels intuitive and also gives you fine control over your edits.
You can edit something as detailed as your subject's jawline. Or as Adobe demoed, re-position someone's mouth to make it appear like they're smiling or upset.
