Whether you shoot real estate or architectural/interior design, if you do your own editing in Photoshop, then you know there is no way to overstate the importance of making proper and accurate selections within the editing process. While some selection tools are always effective (i.e., pen-tool and polygonal lasso tool), using others like the quick selection tool often spirals into an exercise in frustration.
I recently ran across the announcement for Photoshop's new "Object selection" tool, which uses machine learning algorithms to make what this video calls "intuitive"selections. Regardless of the hype, as with all selection tools, determining this new tool's utility will depend on how quickly and effectively it can refine edges. Most any selection tool can do a great job with high-contrast edges. That said, it'll be really interesting to see what this new Adobe feature can do!
