User Reviews for Adobe Capture: Illustrator, Ps

Slow & clumsy; not sure why this exists

The UI isn’t exactly clumsy in terms of design (edit: well, yeah, it is), but it’s clumsy in terms of speed: there’s tons of lag and little indication that it’s processing anything. Maybe there’s just too much processing being demanded for a mobile device CPU. Maybe it’s just that there’s zero user control over how much processing it does for things like “shape” creation from images (smoothing feature, especially).With the obsolescence of Adobe CS6, I’m exiting the Adobe product platform. I will NEVER subscribe to software. Software subscriptions are an utterly abusive market paradigm. It’s all about grabbing ALL the money, rather than a reasonable amount of money for a perpetual license to a specific version of a tool.Therefore, I have no idea how well this app integrates into Adobe’s suite of applications and tools. I really don’t care either, because I have no interest in that suite any more. I just want a few tools to do specific things very well, at a reasonable price, (and not be a PITA).This product does not fit that requirement. I’m not exactly sure what usage this product is really meant to fit. Adobe themselves do not fit my requirements as a developer of tools. I’m moving on. Their market dominance is fading, thankfully.EDIT: The UI for refining shape captures is abysmal. There is tons of lag, and the switching between erase and draw is WAY too clumsy. There’s no clear distinction between draw and fill gestures.

Want to like but doesn’t work

Well I wanted to give this a while after watching the live presentation. I tried each tool and they mainly seem to work but I was interested in the pattern tool mainly and of course it simply don’t work at all. It seems to default to bitmap, and if you try to change it locks up as if camera frozen (no not clicked to freeze). If you try to change the pattern shape, nothing happens. No pop up selector comes up as shown in demo. I’m on iOS 11.3. Kept playing with pop ups finally popped up seemingly a force/hold press on the icon finally made it open but not a normal press ... you must press and hold.... well sometimes. It’s locked again on me. Seems like it only opens when vector, yet the image is locked so useless can’t see

Awesome! Love the Features!

I absolutely love this app. It is great for using your camera to take pictures and use the different tools to highlight a font, for example, and then it will search for the most similar one available in the Fonts store and everytime I have used it, it finds an identical or nearly identical one. Another great feature allows you to export patterns from a photograph and this has been a really neat tool. Used it to take photos of some fabrics that had some awesome patterns and colors, but the only downside was the color didn’t always come out accurately, but that falls on the cell phone camera for not processing it properly. Lots of other great features too, but it is an awesome app to accompany the suite of programs in Adobe’s creative cloud.

Wish I️ Could Actually Use The App

Wish I Could Actually Use The App - because it’s a really great one, when it’s not crashing or not letting me access images or files. It’s a great day when it’s running smoothly but I find myself cursing this and all the adobe apps more often then not. The at&t store told me the issue is that it’s not compatible with the new Apple update but that’s a cop out excuse because I’ve always had these issues, it’s just now 50% more problematic since the latest update😢😢 All things said, when the app is actually working- it’s my most useful and favorite design tool!

Great for capturing vector photos!

This has quickly become one of my favorite apps as an artist that frequently uses Illustrator! I wish you could apply multiple filters at the same time when capturing and I would REALLY like to be able to upload multiple photos at a time from camera roll or files and apply the same settings to the batch instead of having to do them one by one. Other than those feature requests though, it’s really easy to use and helpful for digitizing real-world subjects.

Great update!

Update April 2018: Finally the tools I’ve been waiting for in Shapes! Makes all the difference! Some helpful tweaks in the other modules as well, especially Patterns. The app has officially graduated from a sometimes useful toy to an invaluable part of the toolkit!Update: The app keeps improving. In particular the Shapes module is coming close to a valuable aid. The window for refining the image finally offers some flexibility in removing unwanted bits. Desperately needs an Undo button and size control for the eraser. It still produces weirdly angular results that require much adjusting in AI, almost to the point of negating the benefits of being mobile. The pattern module is a nice addition to the repertoire, if rather primitive thus far. Original Review: Fail to see how the Looks redesign is a move forward; the old arrangement gave more information at a glance. Might be useful to toggle between the two, since preferences differ. On the plus side, it's nice to be able to use one's own photos for the test picture. Would be even better if you could export a photo of the filtered image. I love the idea of these apps and appreciate the reduced clutter of having them combined in one place, but they remain more promise than performance. Their application is too narrow. It's frustrating to keep track of which feature is supported by which app(s), to create something then find out it's not supported in the app you need it for.

Really Purposeful

This app does exactly what it says it does and what I needed it to do, which was to transfer my drawn sketches into Photoshop and being able to efficiently and quickly clean it up, get all my necessary lines and shapes clear, erase anything I didn't want, name them, and automatically load to Photoshop library for me to place. It's been fantastic and has saved me a lot of work and time. Every page was done three weeks ago and am in my next phase of production. Looks like I will be meeting my goals/timeframe. Only thing is this efficiency can only be done with Photoshop CC and not older versions of Photoshop, which is what I have. So it forced me to subscribe to the Adobe photographer package, which is $9.99 a month. But it's been worth it for me. Thanks for coming up with this app. I didn't have crash problems like the other reviewers. Fantastic and very efficient and effective app--oh, you smart people over at Adobe! Thank you!

Focus less on data mining your users and more on improving the actual software.

I’ve been an Adobe customer for a really long time and have sent them likely thousands of dollars over the years. I appreciate the work they do. However, with your mobile apps — PLEASE do something about how often we get signed out.It is such a hassle to have 10-15 different apps - all useful in their own right — that seem to just periodically decide to sign themselves out … then there’s like four different login screens…two factor authentication, then password again, then confirming that we are okay with you spying on everything we do so you can turn a bigger profit (no, I’m not okay with it and I’d be willing to bet the person who reads this isn’t okay with it either. 💀) just to open the app and use it for its stated purpose.It makes me want to not use your apps at all. I don’t have this issue with any other creative apps and the perpetual need to keep logging back in over and over with no clear reason why is really, really agitating. Please, please, please fix this. In all your apps. Invest more in making it less of a hassle to use your products and create things that your market actually wants than you do data mining. It’s not a good look and costs you long time customers.

3 stars after Oct 2018 update; would have given 5 before update

This was my go-to app for vectorizing my sketches and migrating them into illustrator. It used to be a lot more simple, and the smoothing effect (my favorite effect) used to run very quickly. Now, when I take photos of my sketches they look a lot more grainy. This in itself isn’t an issue until I go over to the smoothing effect, which bogs down my phone because it’s trying to vectorize every. Single. Grain. Then, when it finishes smoothing my artwork after a good 5-10 minutes (if it finishes at all), it ends up a lot lighter, white washed, and less defined. If I can’t figure out how to make this work like it did before I’m going to have to find another app to use. I hope the next update fixes these issues.

This is what I was looking for. It’s sad that we are in a pay me and I’ll tell you all the info. I found this app by accident after asking people in different groups for help with pictures for projects cause I didn’t know what I was doing. I found this and have been going through files just to watch it eat these pics up and spit them out in 5 seconds. Versus me sending hours trying to get the color right in the picture for it to pick up the lines in other programs and apps. THANK YOU!!!!! I feel like I hit the jackpot!!!
