This exceptional feature can help you change the gaze, facial angle, hair thickness, light direction, and a lot more. The cherry on the cake is its revolutionary feature head direction feature allows the user to change the direction of the head in the picture. This feature is only accessible to cloud uses.
This is another insanely amazing neural filter which colorizes a black and white picture most beautifully. AI has been exploited to its fullest by Adobe especially when it comes to using this colorize feature.

#7- REFINE HAIR
It takes quite a lot of time using the pen tool, quick selection tool, or object selection tool in making the selection of the subject to get into select and mask to work on the hair, in spite of that, a little string of hair is always left behind. Usually one uses the refine edge brush tool to gradually paint around the hair, then it does a pretty good job. To make all that easy, Adobe has added the refine hair feature where with just single click and it will automatically do all the tasks discussed above which makes it really efficient.
#8- SELECT AND MASK PRE-SETS
This feature of Adobe is really helpful when it comes to to dealing with similar pictures. Here you can save the entire editing parameters of the picture as a pre-set say the smart radius, edge direction, global refinements etc. So that whenever the same object is seen in any picture, the pre-set will be enabled and the object will automatically get filtered in according to previously set parameters.
#9- EASY PLUGIN
Adobe has its own variety of plugins in its market place and therefore this version gives a brand new plugins menu bar where you can either use your downloaded plugins or browse and creative cloud desktop applications will show up and from there you can install ant plugin you wish like Watermark 3, PixelSquid, Arranger for PC, Picture Instruments Toolbox etc.

This feature is also under neural filter inside beta. It adds haze based on the depth in the image. You can make warmer or cooler after increasing the haze.
