Adobe shows off Photoshop CS7 camera shake reduction tool

Adobe has released a video showing a tool intended for the next version of Photoshop, which is likely to be Photoshop CS7.

In the video, Adobe's senior Photoshop product manager Zorana Gee shows a a new tool aimed at photographers called Shake Reduction.

Zorana says that this camera shake reduction tool allows photographers to de-blur an image, which she says works especially well with photos taken in low-light conditions or with a slow shutter speed.

The Shake Reduction effects lives in Sharpen section of the Filter menu. Applying it brings up a large Lens Correction-style dialog with the photo in it, plus a series of fine-tuning controls.

Zorana demonstrates it on an photo of a plant, first selecting an area to work on and then letting it work its magic on bringing back detail into the image. As is usual with these demos, the results look amazing - though the final product's milage may vary.

More info on the next version of Photoshop will be released at Adobe's Max 2013 conference in Los Angeles from May 4-8. Our reporter Ashleigh Allsopp will be at the event, bringing you in-depth reports of what's announced and interviews with attendees and speakers.

The release of the video follows sneak peeks at new versions of Flash Pro, After Effects, Premiere Pro, SpeedGrade, Prelude and Audition. More details on these are expected at Max too.
