Hello I work in film at major studio. I make backgrounds alot and I notice most of photoshops updates for this decade are geared towards portraits like selecting hair, or maniupulating the face to make them old, ect. I know you also added replace sky features and AI for landscapes too but mostly its focused on potraits, and selection.
As someone who designs backgrounds, like cities and buildings there are features in Adobe I would like to see added for all my designers out there, architects, concept artist, and cityscape photographers. I'd like to see a perspective grid /drawing tool added. I was happy when you all added symmetrical drawing tools because they are super helpful but I was hoping you all would keep going and add the rest of the draftsman toolkit most software these days have, like rulers and perspective drawing. Even if you're doing photo maniuplation of a city, having perspective tools would be handy.
I dont know who is in charge of making updates to photoshop, I realize you serve a big market, but it seems like whoever is incharge of the updates is doing mostly the same thing (selection, and AI, sometimes text) for the last 10-15 years. It makes me wonder are there any actual artist working at adobe, like someone who can draw? If you were to go into a major studio like Disney, Warnerbrothers, ect, and ask what do artist want, how can we help improve your workflow, what would they say? Autodesk 3D will do these things, and make tools to help their 3d artist but I feel adobe just does what they think is cool, like AI. So Im asking (since most artist dont go on forumns like this), would it be helpful to start a petition that different artist at studios could sign, to add perspective grid drawing to photoshop? (There's a small list of other things but thats a good start). Would adobe be willing to listen to pay attention to something like that?
I apologize if it sounded like a rant, but I use this tool everyday for work, and very passionote about it being better. I have been patient for a long time but see so much more potential for artist and draftsman thats being ignored, while photography (yes its PHOTO-shop) in paticular portraits seems to be the sole focus.
