Using AI to Save Boring Old Photo


*PSA: You have entered the realm of large file sizes. Your patience is appreciated! Things may take longer than usual to load and respond to user input here.


This old photo was taken with a wide lens and in bright daylight, which makes for a terrible lighting situation. Moreover, there's nothing really happening that draws the viewer's attention. Just a person sitting on a rock. Under different conditions, that might be enough, so I set out to create those different conditions. You be the judge!

I also decided this was a good place to show how leveraging the cutting-edge AI features in Photoshop's Neural Filters, I can seamlessly transform the season of a landscape, blending precise detail with a touch of artistic charm. This AI technology is somewhat fresh on the scene, so it might not pass pixel-peeping examinations just yet but it truly shines when you add a subtle lens blur!

Sometimes the galleries will fail to display images and instead display a single color or a very pixelated image. This can happen because some of my portfolio images are very high resolution, (even up to 15,000 pixels across- Photoshop's maximum export size) which can cause them to load slowly for some users. 

Here are two things you can try if you think something weird is going on:

1. If you see a solid color, try refreshing your browser tab.

2. If you see a blurry image, first try waiting a bit if your internet is slow, and if that doesn't work, try step 1.

Also keep in mind that depending on your internet speed, when you click on one of these images for full-screen mode, it can take up to several minutes before you see the full-resolution version!
