Edit Photos with Voice Commands? Yes, Please!
Adobe’s research team has shared a new video showing off a working version of Lightroom Mobile that has an integrated voice assistant, similar to Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa, that’s used to edit photos via voice commands.
During the brief video, the user can be seen cropping, rotating, and then sharing an image. It will not be hard for designers to imagine the possibilities. In the future, for example, designers may be able to tell Lightroom to “adjust the contrast lower” or “set the color temperature to daylight.”
Adobe also indicated that the voice assistant is already capable of using either on-device computing or cloud-based services for voice recognition and parsing, which would ensure the assistant would work regardless of whether or not a user is connected to the Web.
The company said that it’s a first step toward a robust multimodal voice-based interface which allows its creative customers to "search and edit images in an easy and engaging way using Adobe mobile applications” but it looks pretty impressive already.
