Adobe just announced a bunch of new features across its entire Creative Cloud Suite, from the release of Illustrator for iPad to new collaborative tools including in-app live-streaming. But it's the latest updates to Photoshop that are truly turning heads – both figuratively and literally.

A series of AI-powered tweaks called Neural Filters were just revealed during Adobe MAX 2020. These include a number of colour-based overlays and effects (including the ability to colourise black-and-white- photos), but the most striking—and in some cases terrifying—Neural Filters apply to portraits. The new features are available today, so there's no better time to download Photoshop or check out the best Creative Cloud deals available.
