Adobe Adobe Unveils Future of Creative Cloud With Generative AI as a Creative Co-Pilot in Photoshop
Once you click ‘Generate,’ Photoshop produces three Firefly-generated variations and shows you the first. You can cycle through them using buttons in the Contextual Task Bar or by clicking the thumbnails in the Properties panel. If none of them look good, you can click ‘Generate’ again to get three more variations. A fun trick is to use the crop tool to create some empty space either side of an image, in which Adobe’s AI talents can run wild. Select the Marquee tool then hold the shift key and draw rectangles that cover a small amount of the existing image and extend into the blank space. In other words, that bench we’ve created above cannot be copied and pasted on its own to another part of the image, as the surrounding area will also be duplicated.
- Face it, the world has more than enough photos of almost everything , photography has already died for most aspects apart from what was once looked down on wedding or portrait photography of families.
- To date, access to Firefly has been mostly limited to a small number of beta testers who requested access to the AI.
- Now that we have our background, let’s add a couple of accents.
- I started with this unremarkable smartphone vacation image above on the left, that I would usually throw away.
In addition to extending the image area of your canvas, you can use generative fill to replace backgrounds in your images. For this step, we’ll eliminate the background of our car image and replace it with a depiction of the salt flats in Utah. We can use the select subject button for our image, but other selection tools may produce a better result depending on the image you decide to use.

LimeWire also has a crypto utility token called LMWR, which can be used to pay for prompts, earn ad revenue share for AI content, and more. LMWR can be bought and traded on many large exchanges including Kraken. Currently live is the LimeWire AI Studio, it uses a variety of open source image generation models including SDXL, SD 2.1, DALL-E2, and they are working on a proprietary model. NightCafe is one of the big names in the world of AI art generators.
This means, for example, that Firefly features like generative fill and generative expand in Photoshop are now available without having to install the beta. In addition, the company is also launching Firefly as a standalone web app, giving what was previously more akin to a demo official status within the Adobe product portfolio. In addition to altering existing images, Photoshop’s AI generative fill can create images too. However, we should note that Photoshop struggles with images larger than 1024 pixels, often resulting in lower-quality images. So, with that in mind, when creating new images, you’ll either need to create a canvas no larger than 1024 pixels (w x h) or generate your composite image in sections. For example, Generative Fill and Generative Expand are now available in the most stable version of Photoshop (version 25.0) and are designed to be safe for commercial use.
How are Generative Fill and Generative Expand different from other tools in Photoshop?
Being successful in Stock and creating the best content to meet customer needs requires expertise, taste, and imagination, no matter what tools you use. Generative AI images can tell new stories in creative ways when generative AI tools are used considerately and with good intentions. Apply your stock knowledge to approach new content opportunities with AI tools as part of your creative process. For creative inspiration, visit the Adobe Stock Artist Hub. Firefly also is designed to skip over styling prompts like that have provoked serious complaints from artists displeased to see their type of art reproduced by a data center. And it supports the Content Authenticity Initiative’s content credentials technology that can be used to label an image as having been generated by AI.
Read our article on Stability AI to learn more about an ongoing discussion regarding the challenges generative AI faces. Or our comprehensive list on the applications of generative AI. Midjourney needs no introduction, it offers amazing art generation capabilities, the only problem is you need to use the Discord instant messenger App which for many users is a deal breaker. Users can interact with the MidJourney bot by sending it a direct message or by inviting it to another server on their official Discord server.

OM System (formerly Olympus) has released the Tough TG-7, the successor to the highly rated TG-6. The camera’s core features haven’t changed, but the TG-7 gains a refined grip, new interval and ‘construction’ modes, interval shooting, and a USB-C connector. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional film productions or even A-cameras for amateur and independent productions. We’ve combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. I’ve already read where some photographers are praising that generative fill to extend the canvas, because often clients will ask for a photo with on aspect ratio but then change their mind after the fact. So AI is not a «tool» I want to use to enhance my creativity or get better pictures, because it’s the antithesis of photography as I see it.
Nearly three and a half decades since we first brought Photoshop to the world, we’re writing a new chapter in our history with the integration of Generative AI and Adobe Firefly into Photoshop. Today we deliver an incredible new capability into creators’ hands that empowers them to work at the speed of their imagination while fundamentally transforming the experience into something more natural, intuitive and powerful. Now it’s time to take Generative Fill for a spin and experiment with generative AI in your workflow.
Obviously, it’s only a «problem» if it matters to you, as a photographer, that other people believe your pictures are close enough to reality; or, as a viewer, that what you’re seeing is close enough to reality. Photography allowed to reproduce reality better and quicker. Still, a painting and a photograph were clearly different things, and a painter’s only limit was their imagination.
How will generative AI change the way we create and consume digital media? How will it affect our notions of originality, authenticity and authorship? These are the questions that we will have to grapple with as we enter a new era of creativity assisted by artificial intelligence. In addition to new AI integrations, Adobe has also launched Firefly and Adobe Express Premium as standalone apps included with certain Creative Cloud plans. Express Premium provides easy social media and marketing content creation leveraging Firefly’s AI, while the Firefly web app serves as a sandbox for experimenting with AI-generated art, designs and more.
Adobe Breaks Firefly AI Out Of Beta, Rolls Out Generative AI Capabilities Across Apps
This will become even more vital as deep fakes and AI get better. Guarding even more against conformational bias will play a big role for all of us. There will be mechanisms to validate things (Adobe are introducing options for this) but there will always be those who seek to deceive, doesn’t mean there is no place for those who Yakov Livshits don’t. It’s only a couple of months since I started playing with DALL.E through the Bing portal, and while that’s been fun, it generates more crazy artifacts in images that I would like. Not played with Firefly yet, but it would be interesting to compare. As to why people would be interested, most people view photos as art.
As the company recently announced, it will even indemnify its enterprise users against potential lawsuits when they use Firefly-generated images. ChatGPT has greatly impacted how we create since it burst onto the scene in November 2022. With the chops to help you craft outlines, headlines, paragraphs, or full blog posts, digital creators everywhere are warming up to the idea of creating content with artificial intelligence (AI). One unique feature of Photoshop AI’s generative fill tool is that the shape and size of the selection matter. For example, if you want to add a hat to a person in your image, be sure to draw your selection as closely as possible regarding the type of hat you’d like. Additionally, note that small selections add a smaller design element, whereas a large selection would result in a larger element.
