Adobe today announced the release of Photoshop version 19.1 for Windows and Mac. One of the big new features is the Select Subject tool teased back in November 2017. Photoshop can now help you make a selection of a subject with just a single click using artificial intelligence.

“Select Subject is powered by Adobe Sensei and lets you get started with your selections faster than ever before,” Adobe writes. “Select Subject automatically selects the prominent subjects in the image with one click. You can then refine the selection using other selection tools.”

There are three ways to access Select Subject: (1) by choosing Select > Subject, (2) while using the Quick Selection or Magic Wand tools (Select Subjects is in the options bar), and (3) while Quick Selection tool in the Select & Mask workspace (Select Subjects is in the options bar).

Using the tool, you can quickly select and isolate people in portraits from backgrounds.

And the AI doesn’t just recognize humans. Animals and other subjects can be one-click selected as well.

Here’s the Sneak Peek video Adobe previously released that shows Select Subject in action:
