We had reported this month that Google’s chief of photography, Marc Levoy, had left the company earlier this year after mutual agreement from both the company and Marc. Now, this was a shocker for the fans and followers of Google Pixel lineup and their camera prowess over the years. Because we know that Google’s Camera is exceptional right now and it is not because of hardware but because of software. It was strange for Google to let such an employee go who has literally made the Pixel a brand that it is right now.
We all speculated that Marc Levoy could join another OEM such as Samsung or Apple to bring his expertise in this field of software-backed camera improvements and make their cameras better. Also, we were hoping OnePlus would sign him at the first possible chance in order to benefit from his talents. However, it has now been revealed that Marc Levoy has been picked up by none other than Adobe.
Yes, Adobe the company which makes awesome designing tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom and others will now have the talents of Marc Levoy. Also, the company has revealed that Marc will help them make a “universal camera” app. Now, we already know that Adobe has released apps for the Android phones which work on almost every model. One of them is the Photoshop Camera which can be termed as a universal app too.
Adobe sent a brief statement to TheVerge stating that Marc Levoy’s assignment will be “centered on the concept of a universal camera app,” but did not elaborate any further. It is possible that there might be a new app as a camera replacement for Android phones while this could be an update to Photoshop Camera app as well.
Now, we already know that Google Pixel owners know how valuable their camera is all thanks to the Google Camera app. We also see that if the Google Camera app is installed on other phones, it works and works very well to produce much better photos than the stock app.
This is all thanks to Google’s computation photography and if Adobe brings the same to every phone, we will be interested in seeing sales of the Pixel phones because the only advantage they have right now would be gone as well.
