The Photoshop World Keynote kicked off bright and early this morning as hundreds of attendees lined up and poured through the doors. The Photoshop Guys did a hilarious spoof video called "Project Photoshop" that was brilliant as usual. There was even a full high fashion runway show featuring off the latest Photoshop fashion designs.
Especially interesting was Adobe president Johnny L's presentation. Every year he shows off some great new technology that the geniuses at Adobe are working up. There was a clear focus on lens correction capabilities, wherein Bryan Hughes demonstrated how lens distortion in video can be corrected with a simple click all in Photoshop. He also debuted forthcoming technology that allows for user-defined, real time lens correction. This new feature allows a user to simply point at what individual features of a photo should be corrected and will instantly render those changes.
Johnny also showed how Adobe is integrating tablets into Photoshop. In the "near term," the Apple iPad (other devices in the works) will tether directly inside of Photoshop and allow for control of the application, with a particular focus on color, right from your tablet. How sweet is is that?
