Adobe working on image editing app you can talk to

Ever wondered how easy it would be to edit images if your application could actually hear you out? You use extensive tools and spend hours trying to create that perfect image, but Adobe is now finding a way to let you talk to your app and tell it how exactly you want a photo to look like. Say hello to PixelTone, the prototype app Adobe has been working on with the University of Michigan that will simply follow your voice instructions in tandem with certain actions to help you edit images just the way you want them. They call the app ‘A multimodal interface for image editing.’ A video was released by one of the collaborators from Michigan University, showing off the brilliant capabilities of the app. The video works around a few images that the application adjusts according to voice instructions. You can voice instructions, ‘Darken the midtones at the top’ the app and it will adjust it automatically, throwing up a slider to help you fine-tune the results. You can touch a part of the image and ask PixelTone to make it blurry, increase its contrast, and more. Here’s the best part, PixelTone works not just with terminologies, but general instructions too. The video demonstration asked PixelTone to make the photo look ‘more heavenly.’ Whatever that meant, the app makes the picture look more dreamy and light. You can also ask PixelTone to give a Retro look to the photo as well as other filters. Instagram feeling threatened yet?
