Are there any updates to fix the select subject.

 

I am using Apple M1 Max on Monterey.

Currently using Photoshop 23.1.1 release.

 

See attachment.

Hi there,

 

We're sorry to see that the "select subject" feature is not working for you. Can you check with a different photo with a contrasting background? What is your system specification? 

Please try disabling OpenCL but leave GPU preference on?

Let us know if that makes any difference.

Similar issues are there, check this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

and our forum discussion: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/quot-select-subject-quot-does-not-wor...

 

 

Regards,

Ranjisha

Still the same effect. Selection is all over the place.


See the attached image for system information.

No change.

You can try updating Photoshop to 23.2 and check if that helps.

is it just not working on that one image? Are there other layers in your document? It's working as expected here on my M1.

There are no layers in the image.

Please provide what version on PS you are using along with hardware specs.  Because it what you are using may not be the same setup I am dealing with.

Just wondering if there was an update to this issue. Subject selection worked great on my Macbook Pro 2018, but I just purchased a 2021 Macbook Pro with M1 Max and it doesn't work correctly in Photoshop or Camera Raw. Thanks in advance

Hi there,

We understand your concern, and we always want to share a good experience with the users.

Currently, mac M1 machines are seeing some issues. However, things work smoothly with  Rosetta emulation mode. have you tried that option? If not, please try using Rosetta.

To learn how to run Photoshop in Rosetta, see About Rosetta.

Let us know if this helps.

 

Regards.

I was struggling with the same issues. I tried everything until I get the 23.3.0 version with the same problem. So,  I did the opposite. I disable the rosetta option. It works. 

Then I try to enable the OpenCL and it's ok.
So, version 23.3.0 on MacMini M1 16Gb,
OpenCL enable,
Rosetta disable. 
Subject Selection working fine in the same photo.

I'm having the same issue, using 23.3.1 on an M1 Max. Select Subject chooses basically random stuff. Lightroom will perfectly select the subject in the very same images. In looking, there seems to be a TON of peoplewith this issue.
