Adobe Capture turns your iPhone and iPad into a creation machine.

Imagine looking through your camera to see patterns, vectors, and even fonts. Now imagine turning those visions into design materials. The power to turn the world around you into creative digital assets to build your projects is in the palm of your hand today.

Create Vector Art on the Go
Turn your analog artwork or a photo into a scalable vector for use in a logo, illustration, animation, and more.

Using Adobe Capture, you can turn create vectors instantly with the Shapes function. Simply point and shoot at your drawing or upload a photo and watch it magically transform into clean, crisp lines.

Find Your Typography
See a font you like out in the wild? Capture it.

Now you can find your perfect type match using Adobe Capture. Take a photo of the type you like (in a magazine, on a label, a sign, anywhere!) and watch a list of similar Adobe Fonts magically appear.

Create Color Themes
Designers, rejoice! Looking for customized color palettes? Turn on your iPhone or iPad camera, aim at the scene that has the colors you want, and capture it. Or, import an image to craft your color theme.

Design Digital Brushes
Can’t find the right brush to paint? Using Adobe Capture, simply take a photo or use a saved image to create digital brushes that match with your creative vision.

Generate Beautiful Patterns
Using an iPhone/iPad camera or from Photo Library to capture the image and generate patterns with Capture preset geometrics. Or craft seamless tiling patterns and vector patterns that easily scale. You can easily create beautiful patterns that fit with your creative projects.

Craft 3D PBR Materials
Take a photo using iPhone/iPad camera or choose an image from Photo Library to generate realistic PBR materials for use in 3D design. Within Capture, you can also modify materials to give them even more texture or blend the edges for seamless repeat tiling.

Capture Colorful Looks
Capture light and color to turn into beautiful color grading profiles for your images and videos. Record the magic of a sunset and transfer that feel to use in your own creative visual projects.

Seamlessly Sync Creative Elements
All your assets can save to Adobe Creative Cloud libraries, which you can access from your Creative Cloud account in all compatible applications.

Overly Adoberly

Utterly locked within the adobe ecosystem—no google drive saving, no seeming support for any non adobe apps.

In theory all fine, after all it’s an adobe product. However, what can adobe possibly offer the world in terms of mobile photo editing?! Where is the competition to Afinity Photo? Even their own mix and fix haven’t been updated in 6 months or so.
I don’t think adobe realise That many people are stepping away from desktops and it’s now becoming viable to do everything from even ones phone nowadays.
Hardware is there; software it seems is still wanting.

This app is amazing if you are a designer on the go. It works perfect with just your fingers but if you have the Apple Pencil or a stylus, it’s a lot more effective for certain details.

If you aren’t as proficient, there are useful tips within the app to help you as you go along and once you get the hang of it you will be able to pick up the attributes of the app.

Seriously if you like drawing get this!

I seriously cannot believe how useful this is in conjunction with the Adobe draw app! this is so amazing, you just need to point your camera on any random object that you like the texture of and take a picture so that you can use that pattern on your vector graphics drawing. It’s simply magnificent.
