Today we’re not going to get into another discussion of the many advantages of Raw files compared to JPEGs. Let’s just assume that, for whatever reason, you shot a bunch of JPEG images and they look really awful.
Sometimes you can dump the images and reshoot in Raw, but that’s not always possible if you’ve already returned from a shoot. Fortunately, you can often remove unsightly JPEG artifacts in Photoshop, and the process is almost instantaneous.
Adobe has made great strides with Neural Filters that use artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically rehabilitate images or create interesting effects, with little more than a click of your mouse.
