It is the most impressive evolution of the software. Neural Filters is a new workspace in Photoshop that provides intelligent filters that practice machine learning. Filters that allow you to explore creative ideas with a single click, such as: smoothing a model's skin, showing emotions on a neutral face (surprise, anger, a smile, etc.), and even changing the direction of the head and that of the light.

Imagine that you want, for a personal or professional project, to change the appearance of the sky. How do you add dramatic intensity to your sky when your photo brings out a lenient atmosphere? With the “Sky replacement” tool, the operation will take you a few seconds and you will have the choice to select the sky you want from a wide choice offered by the software.

It has opportunity to remember beautiful memories and optimize the colorization of your photos without the slightest effort.

Before, when you wanted to create a pattern, you had to design an image, export it and repeat it in mosaic to see the final result. Thanks to the new Pattern Preview mode, you can now create patterns and view their evolution in real-time in the form of a mosaic. To do this, simply go to “View> Pattern preview” and give free rein to your ideas… and above all, save time.

With Photoshop 2021, you can now create shapes (rectangles, squares, lines) and dynamically change their appearance. This transformation is very intuitive since a small blue button now accompanies each created shape: it is by playing with it that you will be able to modify the appearance of your shape.
