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 to immediately use in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Fresco, and more. The power to transform the world around you into creative assets to build your projects is in the palm of your hands today.

Vectorize on the Go
Create vectors instantly with Shapes. Turn images into smooth, detailed, scalable vectors for use in logos, illustration, animation, and more. Point and shoot at your drawing or upload a photo and watch it magically transform into clean, crisp lines.

Identify Typography
Find your perfect font 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 and Gradients
Designers, rejoice! Looking for customized color palettes? Find an inspiring gradient? Aim your camera at the scene that has the colors you want, and capture them to use in your artwork.

Build Beautiful Digital Brushes
Can’t find the right brush to paint? Take a photo or use an image to create digital brushes that match your creative vision. Use your brushes in Photoshop, Illustrator, or Fresco for rich painterly effects.

Craft Intricate Patterns
Capture inspiring images and generate patterns with Capture preset geometrics. Easily create beautiful patterns that fit with your creative projects.

Generate 3D Textures
Generate realistic PBR materials for use in 3D design straight from the camera. Modify your materials for even more texture or blend the edges for seamless repeat tiling on your 3D objects.

Capture Light and Color
Collect light and hue to turn into beautiful color grading profiles for your images and videos with Looks. Record the magic of a sunset and transfer that feel to use in your photos and video projects.

Seamlessly Sync Creative Elements
All your assets save to Adobe Creative Cloud libraries. Instantly access your digital elements from your Creative Cloud account in all compatible applications.

Blown away

Sadly I am still a CS6 user and needed a good reason to move to CC. I think this may be the trigger.

I am blown away at how simple it is to use. The every one of the multiple solutions available, from creating brushes to accurately picking colors from a scene would normally include many steps, taking a picture, cropping, sampling, all to get a result similar to these from Adobe Capture.

Fantastic product, seamlessly integrated from mobile device through cloud storage to the desktop - I love it!

Good but missing the final step

For creating b&w vectors this app is fantastic but there is room for improvement.
When refining the image you cannot change the brush size so even when zooming in you can’t quite get the detail you would like. The crucial step it is missing however is the ability to remove the background. It would be great if you could select ALL the white and delete it. From what I can tell with all their apps there is only the smart outline/delete function which doesn’t help with creating logos for most or in my case intricate stencils with ease

Simple but has limits

Great simple little app, but it is very limited in its functions. My main use for it is the smoothing effect to quickly experiment with ideas. Just a couple of things could vastly improve this app. For example the ability to select which 2 colours you would like the vector to be made into, instead of having just black and white. Particularly the ability to have a transparent background instead of white. Again, this function would allow very quick reworks of ideas and experimentation which can be quickly exported to other adobe apps and software to refine.
