Gesture control comes to Photoshop

You can now use Photoshop just by tracing your fingers through the air - no keyboard, touchscreen or stylus required!

With over 20 years' experience in graphic arts, UI design, software engineering, product design, 3D modelling and art direction, designer Anastasiy Safari has developed a number of useful plugins for creatives. And his latest project Ethereal is no exception.

This cool new tool combines Photoshop and a Leap Motion controller - a gesture control device that's a bit like using a Kinect, but on a desktop computer. Essentially it enables you to create artwork by drawing in the air, with no tools attached.

By simply connecting a Leap device to a PC and then linking to Photoshop, users can draw, control brush sizes and adjust colours purely through finger and hand movements. For more details, head to the Ethereal website.
