Capturing everyday objects with a smart phone before transferring them to editing software, it is now possible!
In May 2020 Cyril Diagne, a French designer and programmer based in Paris, made waves by unveiling a stunning video of his Cut and Paste concept, capable of transposing real-world objects into editing software from a smartphone. The footage has been viewed more than 5 million times since it was uploaded.
Photoshop: more artificial intelligence for more flexibility
Copy and paste real world objects with ClipDrop!
Almost 6 months later, the programmer is back with a new video of his application, which is now available for download in beta version on Android, iOS, macOS and Windows. The name of the app? ClipDrop.
In a thread posted on the social network Twitter, Cyril Diagne explains that it is also possible to take a screenshot directly from your desktop PC and drag and drop it into software such as Figma, Photoshop, Canva, Pitch, Powerpoint or Google Docs.
You can extract everything: objects, people, drawings and text.
For those who use Photoshop in particular, the artist evokes the creation of a plug-in which makes it possible to deposit directly in the retouching software a new layer with an editable mask. The extension is available on the official Adobe website and a quick demo can be viewed below.
Note that the application being in beta, it is possible to encounter some bugs during use… The final version of ClipDrop should however be released soon. Have fun !
