The new Neural Filters in Photoshop are mind-blowing. Using the power of AI technology, you can now very easily do cool things like colorize old B&W photos (with remarkable results, as shown in the tweet below), change facial expressions, transfer artistic styles from one photo to another, and harmonize different layers to make a realistic-looking composite.

But one of these Neural Filters is particularly jaw-dropping… It’s the Landscape Mixer, which can instantly change the time of day, the weather, the season, or even the seeming environment of your favorite outdoor photos. Go from midday to sunset, from sunny to snowy, from summer to fall or winter, or from a stark desert to a lush rainforest with the same source image.
Check out the three photos below. The second and third images both started from the same original shot below… All it took was a few clicks for these incredible transformations!

Adobe walks through how these changes were quickly accomplished here.
Almost like magic, Neural Filters tackle tasks that previously took hours and completes them in a snap. Like other recent Creative Cloud features, they can help save a lot of time. If you’d like to try Neural Filters out for yourself but don’t yet have the latest version of Photoshop, then you can download a free trial here.
Landscape Mixer invites experimentation, so adjust the sliders until you are happy with the result… You can always undo with the Ctrl/Cmd + Z keyboard shortcut, or there’s a “Reset parameters” control at the upper right of the panel.
There are currently 11 different Neural Filters available. Note that the Landscape Mixer is technically still in beta, so it’s likely to get even better over time…
