Adobe first teased Project Gemini, its “next-generation drawing and painting app” last October, along with a preview of its Photoshop for the iPad app.

While Adobe has said that Photoshop for the iPad will have features that focus on compositing workflows, Project Gemini is specifically focused on illustrating, painting, and drawing.

The app’s main selling point is its Live Brushes, which are watercolor and oil paint brushes that behave like paint in real life.

The brushes react to the paint that’s already on the canvas, so watercolors bloom and spread naturally, and colors blend together seamlessly.

With oil paints, brush strokes are depicted with vivid texture, and you can even control how much paint can be applied on the canvas.

Project Gemini lets artists draw with raster and vector brushes, combining the tools from iPad apps like Adobe Illustrator Draw and Photoshop Sketch into one app.

Adobe is bringing Photoshop CC to the iPad.

Set for release next year, Photoshop CC for iPad will bring the full Photoshop engine to Apple's line of tablets.

Photoshop for iPad has a user interface structured similarly to the desktop application.

It is immediately familiar to users of the application but tuned for touch screens, with larger targets and adaptations for the tablet as well as gestures to streamline workflows.

Both touch and pencil input are supported.

The interface is somewhat simpler than the desktop version, and although the same Photoshop code is running under the hood to ensure there's no loss of fidelity, not every feature will be available in the mobile version.

Adobe's new painting and drawing app, Fresco, is out for iPads and will come soon to the Microsoft Surface.

While there are similar apps available, the Photoshop maker says it's designed Fresco to have a natural feel and be easy for anyone to pick up.

Working on it initially as Project Gemini, Adobe used its creative artificial intelligence, called Sensei, to create "live brushes" that perform realistically.

This means brush strokes using oil or watercolor paints flow, have realistic physics and can blend into each other.

Adobe Fresco is available in the Apple App Store for the iPad, and it's free... kind of.

Those with certain Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions can use the app for no additional cost.

It also previewed Project Gemini, which spins off the brushes and brush engine from Photoshop into a drawing and painting app and Project Aero, the AR-creation app that briefly debuted onstage during Apple WWDC 2018 in June.

And, oh yeah, there are updates to the desktop apps.

Gemini is currently out in a limited, prerelease iOS-only trial.

One of the most notable other changes Adobe made to CC involves fonts: It rebranded TypeKit to Adobe Fonts and changed the service so that CC plans include the complete library, all faces come in web and desktop variants, and there's no limit on the number you can sync or usage based on page views or domains.

For its most recent mobile apps, Adobe has been using the code base of the desktop software and combining it with its Adobe Sensei AI architecture and cloud syncing to provide a coherent creation experience across all devices.

It's not clear exactly how much of Photoshop's capabilities will make it into the iPad version, though it's definitely a targeted subset specifically for photo editing and compositing, supplying blending options, adjustment layers, layer masks and support for a lot of layers.

Adobe is gearing up to launch a new painting and drawing app for iPad, and today the company is revealing a few more details about what we can expect.

First and foremost, the app received an actual name today: Adobe Fresco.

On top of that, Adobe also detailed some of Fresco’s features, such as the Live Brushes artists will be able to use while working on their drawings or paintings.

Despite the fact that we’re just learning the name today, this isn’t the first time Adobe has talked about the app.

It was actually teased back in October as Project Gemini, at the same time Adobe announced that it was bringing Photoshop CC to iPad.

Fresco, of course, is a type of painting technique where the painter begins with a layer of plaster on a wall or a ceiling and then paints on top of it with pigment and water while the plaster is still wet.

Adobe revealed at its MAX event that a new Photoshop would be coming for iPads — and not just any old defrocked mobile version.

No, the “real” Photoshop will be available for your iPad sometime next year.

We first heard rumors that Adobe was going to attempt to bring full-bore Photoshop to Apple’s tablet earlier this year.

Scott Belsky, chief product officer of Adobe’s Creative Cloud, told Bloomberg he was hoping to have the product out as soon as possible.

While we’ve had “lite” versions of Photoshop made for App Store before, they’ve always felt more anemic than the desktop version — especially when you consider smartphones and tablets have a plethora of photo- and video-editing apps made specifically with mobile in mind.

Photoshop CC on iPad, though, is using the same code as the desktop version, and will save projects in the same .psd file format.

If you’re ready to graduate from iMovie and dip your toes in the video-editing world, Adobe’s newest app is tailor-made for upping your YouTube game.

Premiere Rush CC is available today on desktop and iOS, with Android support coming later in 2019.

Adobe says the app is “designed specifically for online video creators”, and exporting options optimized for every social platform including Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Vimeo.

Premiere Rush CC, or Project Rush as it was called when it was first revealed at VidCon this year, is Adobe’s solution for budding YouTubers and influencers looking for an all-in-one video editing program.

It’s built to simplify the video-editing, motion graphics, and audio mixing capabilities of Adobe’s professional software like Premiere Pro, AfterEffects, and Audition.

For example, users can bypass having to create their own animated title card for their videos by just grabbing some motion graphics templates from Adobe Stock.

Adobe is launching a suite of iPad apps for graphics pros, including a full version of Photoshop.

But one app designed from the ground-up for styluses may be the most interesting new Adobe product.

It's called Project Gemini, and it's an iPad Pro app with a focus on different "brushes" that can turn your Pencil into a range of different digital paints and drawing tools.

Adobe announced on Monday that it was finally planning to launch a version of "real Photoshop" for iPads as part of its Creative Cloud subscription product.

Photoshop for iPad will be able to open Photoshop "PSD" files and it will be tightly integrated with Photoshop on desktop computers.

"It shares the same code base as its desktop counterpart, so there’s no compromises on power and performance or editing results," Adobe said in a statement.

p The Ulefone Gemini Pro is the latest flagship launched by the Chinese phone manufacturer, its main selling point is the dual camera setup on the back powered by two Sony IMX258 13MP image sensors.

And, as we all know, having two cameras brings the possibility of creating photos with a shallow depth of field, also known as bokeh.

What we didn’t know was achievable is produce a video with the same effect.

Let’s check it out in their latest video!

In the video we see how the Ulefone employee selects 4K quality recording, after that proceeds to enable the bokeh effect, sets the aperture to F/0.8 and voilà!

Now, we aren’t sure how this actually works but it does look promising.

At its Max conference in Los Angeles, Adobe today announced a number of new products in its Creative Cloud suite.

Among those is Project Aero, a new tool that allows for building new AR experiences, and Project Gemini for painting and drawing on the iPad.

The ‘Project’ moniker is Adobe’s way of signifying that these are still early-stage products and not quite ready for prime time yet.

The fact that Adobe is launching a tool for building AR experience doesn’t come as a major surprise.

Adobe isn’t one to stand by as hype builds around a new technology (see: Adobe’s early support for VR).

Project Aero, which integrates with both Adobe Dimension and Photoshop for creating importing assets, is now in private beta, with plans for a wider release in 2019.

It will first be available as an iPad app and later for other devices that use touch and stylus inputs.

Fresco will replicate how real-world mediums such as watercolor and oil paints interact with surfaces and each other.

An extremely rare complete American spacesuit from the Gemini space program is expected to sell for up to $150,000 at auction this week.

The main body of the suit was worn by Air Force chief warrant officer Mitchell Kanowski during high-altitude tests of the Gemini emergency launch escape system.

Kanowski jumped from a NASA training aircraft at high altitude to test the suit in the event of a takeoff failure during launch.

“What makes it significant is that it’s the only known complete American spacesuit to come to market,” Sotheby’s Vice-president and Senior Specialist for Books and Manuscripts Cassandra Hatton told Fox News.

“To see something like this is very, very rare indeed.”

The Gemini program, which ran from 1961 to 1966, was an important stepping stone for the subsequent Apollo missions.

Adobe is making sweeping updates across all the Creative Cloud applications, announced on October 15 at the company’s annual Adobe MAX show.

In addition to updating existing programs, Adobe launched entirely new additions to its Creative Cloud suite, including Premiere Rush CC, a social-focused video editor, and Project Gemini, a Photoshop-like tool designed just for digital painting and sketching.

Teased earlier this year, Project Rush is finally debuting as Adobe Premiere Rush CC.

The program takes some of the power of Premiere and simplifies it for non-professionals.

The program also includes many of the basics from Premiere, like the timeline, color and audio tools, and support for Motion Graphics Effects.

Currently, Premiere Rush CC is available from Adobe direct and the iOS App Store for $10 a month ($29 for teams and $30 for enterprise).

The previous Saturn V didn't go so well, but you guys will be fine.

Fifty years ago today, the third Apollo crew were strapped into a capsule perched atop the third Saturn V to undertake a journey to the Moon.

NASA had only managed to launch two by the time the Apollo 8 crew were sent off, and the last attempt had nearly ended in failure.

Everything on the rocket was fully functional, allowing NASA to drop the usual conservative testing steps preferred by its rocket boffins at the cost of potentially throwing away an entire Saturn V if one of the stages failed.

The all-important S-IVB third stage would placed into orbit, but rather than sending the Apollo spacecraft toward the Moon would instead fire the remaining components back towards the Earth, simulating the velocity at which Apollo would return.

NASA reckoned the mission would kill not two birds, but validate a whole flock.

Android at launch on Planet Computers' latest, Linux support to follow

London-based Planet Computers has said its Cosmo Communicator, a folding phone with a physical keyboard evocative of '90s Psion clamshell palmtops, has finally made its way into production.

There is a family connection when it comes to the Psion scion.

Like the Gemini, it is a chunky affair, but a couple of millimetres thicker and fractionally heavier (326g).

Despite that, it is a more attractive device, mainly because of the colourful 2" external display, replacing a row of LEDs on the Gemini, and allowing you to make and answer calls, read messages, and more, without having to flip the device open.

"We've made it more of a phone, and also added a 24MP camera," Planet CEO Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel told The Reg.
