This morning, Adobe shared a sneak peek of the power of Adobe Camera Raw coming soon to Photoshop on the iPad.
From DNG to Apple ProRAW, users will be able to import and open camera raw files, make adjustments like exposure and noise, as well as take advantage of non-destructive editing and auto-adjustments in raw files – all on the iPad. You’ll also be able to import into PSD as an ACR Smart Object.
The news comes after Adobe announced back in August 2021 that the Magic Wand Tool & Healing Brush would be added to Photoshop on the iPad.

Samyang recently introduced the new Samyang AF 24mm f/1.8 FE lens, but have also said that a “second lens, for APS-C, will be launched on April 23rd” designed to be compact to match APS-C Sony A6xxx series cameras. You can experience the new AF 24mm f/1.8 FE lens with Samyang’s interactive 3D Virtual Reality content, which can be found on the Samyang website.
Samyang has also launched a new feedback page, to hear from customers about products, in order for them to “consider new product development” – and they will be giving five winners $50 every Friday between April 23rd and May 14th.
From Samyang: April 16th 2021, Seoul, South Korea – Korean optical manufacturer Samyang Optics has today opened a new ‘Purchase Feedback’ page on its website at: www.samyanglens.com/feedback
This new channel will gather consumer feedback which will be monitored and considered in new product development. Samyang also recently introduced ‘3D VR’ digital content to enhance consumers’ experience and released a teaser for another upcoming new lens, scheduled to be announced on April 23rd. The teaser suggests a compact APS-C lens for astrophotography with a new design for enhanced usability.
After launching its first autofocus lens in 2016, Samyang has consistently communicated with the global market, to find consumers’ needs and provide solutions with new products and services in good time.
New Purchase Feedback Channel for Product Development
As a main channel for gathering consumer feedback, Samyang has launched a ‘Global Product Feedback’ channel on its website: www.samyanglens.com/feedback
It includes a questionnaire on product and purchase experience and collects feedback which will be reflected in future product development.
Yongwoo Kwon, Marketing Director of Samyang highlights that “The ‘Focus Hold’ button on the latest AF 24mm F1.8 FE is a good example to show how a feature is developed from customer feedback. The Channel will be a valuable source for Samyang to directly communicate with users”.
To celebrate its opening, Samyang will hold many online events during April and May. You can find more details on the global website: www.samyanglens.com
Enhanced Digital Experience with Interactive 3D VR
In addition, Samyang is introducing interactive 3D Virtual Reality content for the latest AF 24mm F1.8 FE on its official website.
Mr. Kwon continued: “This 3D VR is a great tool to assist customers virtually in the pandemic era, where offline exhibitions and tradeshows are not available. It was also important that the content is interactive and playable, so consumers can interact with it”.
It allows users to have a digital experience of the product and understand new features such as the ‘Focus Hold’ button and ‘Custom Switch’ with a few clicks.
Wide Angle Lenses for Full Frame andAPS-C Camera Users
This April, Samyang will introduce two new lenses, both ideal for astrophotography, but one each for full-frame and APS-C sensor sizes. Samyang has launched many lenses geared toward full-frame cameras, due to the industry’s “Full Frame First, then APS-C” motto. However, Sony A6000 series users have constantly requested new lenses specifically designed for their more compact cameras.
“It was a tough choice to make”, said the Director; “since the majority of users are changing to full frame series. But it was important for Samyang to listen to customers and provide what they really want”.
Samyang decided to introduce wide angle lenses (for which they are masterful at), for both sensor sizes and with specific features. The first lens was already announced on April 9th: The AF 24mm F1.8 FE and the second lens, for APS-C, will be launched on April 23rd.

A new tool will be added to Photoshop ‘soon’ that will make it easier to replace skies in images. It’s called the ‘Adobe Sensei-powered Sky Replacement’ feature and Adobe’s Product manager Meredith Stotzner has put together a quick sneak peek tutorial on how it works.
The new tool works by identifying sky automatically which it then masks and a new sky can be added in its place. You can add your own sky or select from one of many ready-made skies provided in a collection from Adobe.
Not much else has been said about the new Photoshop AI Sky Replacement tool but we expect more to be released at the virtual Adobe MAX Creativity Conference taking place in October 2020.
Hit ‘play’ on the video above to watch Meredith Stotzner talk through the new tool.
