To select people or objects from an image in Photoshop, designers use either the Pen Tool, the Quick Select tool, the Magic Wand, or the Lasso tool. All of these require a certain level of effort.
To simplify workflows for Photoshop users, Adobe is working on a new tool called ‘Select Subject’ that lets you select people or objects from plain or complex backgrounds, in just one click.
The tool is powered by Adobe Sensei, the company’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. Watch it in action below.

The new tool will be available in the upcoming release of Photoshop CC. We’ll keep you posted.
