Published

Adobe recently announced Photoshop Camera, a camera app for Android, which is still awaiting release on the Google Play Store. However, via the XDA Developers programming forum, there is an APK available in beta format.

If you want to try it, you can visit the XDA forum and install app. However, we warn you that the app is unstable and will not work at 100%. Also, Photoshop Camera only works from Android 9 .

Photoshop Camera seems to be a glorified filter gallery

Filters in Photoshop Camera are automatically selected by the artificial intelligence built into the app. Users will also be able to choose photo filters manually.

Photoshop Camera Interface

For whom Whether you have Photoshop installed or want to see tutorials on YouTube, Photoshop Camera is the ideal app. You can take a photo and choose the desired effect / filter to add your personal imprint to the photo. The app also offers some bolder effects like “Starry Sky”. This effect takes the existing sky and replaces it with an image of your choice.

However, The app seems to have little more to offer the user. Coming from Adobe and bearing the name Photoshop, I would expect a more versatile and refined product. Who knows, until the final release they may “spice up” the application more to make it more appealing.

Adobe obviously wants to get on social networks

Due to the success of filters on apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook, it’s no wonder Adobe wants a slice of this market. Already a recognized company for its image-altering software, Photoshop Camera wants to be the social media-savvy app.

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
