The Decisive Moment died many years ago, but Adobe’s latest will a little rotational velocity to Cartier-Bresson’s post-mortal movements. Photoshop’s newest AI powered filter is the Smart Portrait emotion editor, which can turn tears into joy (or vice versa) by changing the look on your face. It seems to operate a little like an RPG character creator, changing hairstyles and expressions via the use of sliders, but unutterably more creepy. It’s Deep Fakes made easy, and you know it won’t end well. Put it back, Pandora, put it back.
