Gesture control comes to Photoshop

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

This cool new tool combines Photoshop (opens in new tab) and a Leap Motion (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab).
