Adobe researchers show off new depth-estimation tech for regular images

I keep meaning to pour one out for my nearly-dead homie, Photoshop 3D (post to follow, maybe). We launched it back in 2007 thinking that widespread depth capture was right around the corner. But “Being early is the same as being wrong,” as Marc Andreessen says, and we were off by a decade (before iPhones started putting depth maps into images).

Now, though, the world is evolving further, and researchers are enabling apps to perceive depth even in traditional 2D images—no special capture required. Check out what my colleagues have been doing together with university collaborators:

  1. Still waiting on a set of tools in Ps which are “depth-aware.” I can think of so many new uses for existing tools once you add seg and depth, but these new implementations are nowhere to be seen… yet?
