If you are having a hard time editing a photo of yours, and you are not exactly great with the tools on Adobe Photoshop, then you could probably soon use your voice instead. Reports suggest that Adobe is working on a digital assistant that is designed to understand "creative workflows and the creative aspirations" of its users- kind of like Apple's Siri or Google Assistant, but one that makes art, instead of looking up movie showings.

The idea has potential, and the video the company has shared on it shows a brief and simple demonstration. The user will be able to do a little more than flipping an already edited photo, cropping it, and posting it to Facebook with voice commands. But Adobe does call this a first step, however, so it could become more robust as time goes on. It is still unclear which applications in Adobe's Creative Suite will benefit from voice commands. As of now, Adobe appears to be focused more on using the assistant for editing images, so we might see it on Photoshop, thus ruling out other creative programs like Adobe Premiere for video production, or Adobe Audition for sound editing.

The idea can be great while using it on Adobe's Photoshop Express app on mobile though, given that smartphones are already working well with digital assistants. On the other hand, we remain a little skeptical with the feature coming to apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign, because we are unsure if a digital assistant can replace a trained graphic designer, or even an amateur with every shortcut key mapped to their muscle memory.
