Generate is an image editor with a variety of different artistic filters and effects, from mosaic tiles to neon object edges. Unlike most filter-based image editors, the effects can be adjusted individually and layered on top of each other to further expand the different possibilities. Along with editing stills, users can also add effects to video and even sync them with the audio.
With the app’s latest update, Generate users can now use several Adobe tools within their projects. The new compatibility takes images from Generate and automatically goes back and forth between the different apps. Adobe’s Photoshop Mix cut out, liquefy and healing effects give Generate users more options for remixing images, while the adjust options in Photoshop Express and the effects and stickers from Aviary Photo Editor round out the list of current compatible features.
Creative Cloud subscribers can also now save their Generate app creations directly into the cloud, making it easier for users to backup their work — or to open the files in desktop versions of Adobe software. The cloud compatibility also works with Generate’s video files.
Generate says that additional tool compatibility is already in the works, and that a series of updates over the next several months will continue to tweak the photo and video editing platform.
Along with the Adobe integration, the app’s latest update removed watermarks from images and simplified the screen share and saving processes. The update also brought 15 new filters to Generate.
The latest updates with Adobe integration are available on Generate’s iOS version. The Google Play Store option doesn’t yet have the same Adobe compatibility, but offers similar filters and adjustments. The app is free to download on both platforms.
