Experience the future of Photoshop with Generative Fill
Also note that Generative Fill is creating results at the same resolution as the original photos. This is in contrast to most systems, including Firefly on the web, where the generated images are low resolution, typically 1024 by 1024 pixels. Once downloaded and installed, open Photoshop (beta) and either click New File to start with a blank canvas, or drag and drop an existing image into the application window.
Its AI tools are impressive, whether you need to make small adjustments to an existing image or do a complete overhaul. To blend the two photos together, we must ensure that both images are on the same layer. To do this, select the top layer, then hold Control + Shift + Alt + E (Windows) or Command + Shift + Alt + E (Mac) to tell Photoshop to create a new layer containing all other visible layers. You’ll notice that the generative fill taskbar reveals a text prompt input box.
I then extended the blank canvas to the left and to the right with no text prompt and was astonished at the addition of matching buildings, forest, lake, more lily pads, sky and clouds, shadows and reflections, Yakov Livshits lighting … on and on. Generative Fill empowers you to create as quickly as you can type. Experiment with off-the-wall ideas, ideate around different concepts, and produce dozens of variations in a snap.
When it comes to generating images, Adobe employs an AI image generation technique called diffusion that’s also behind Dall-E, Stable Diffusion, Midjourney and Google’s Imagen. When OpenAI’s Dall-E brought that technology to anyone who signed up for it in 2022, it helped push generative artificial intelligence from a technological curiosity toward mainstream awareness. Now there’s plenty of worry along with the excitement as even AI creators fret about what the technology will bring now and in the Yakov Livshits more distant future. «It really puts the power and control of generative AI into the hands of the creator,» said Maria Yap, Adobe’s vice president of digital imaging. «You can just really have some fun. You can explore some ideas. You can ideate. You can create without ever necessarily getting into the deep tools of the product, very quickly.» Firefly in Photoshop also can also expand an image, adding new scenery beyond the frame based on what’s already in the frame or what you suggest with text.
More inspiring examples from Adobe employees
But now Adobe has added a new function called Generative Fill to the latest Photoshop beta, more people than ever can experiment with AI-powered artwork and image editing. Generative Fill and Generative Expand are powered by Adobe Firefly, Adobe’s powerful generative AI technology. Unlike other Photoshop capabilities, this capability enables you to use a text prompt to generate an image or if you make a selection and leave the text prompt blank, generative AI will remove the selected area. Generative Fill is integrated into every selection tool in Photoshop and produces an entirely new “Generative Layer” so you can work non-destructively, while you explore the unlimited possibilities this new technology delivers. We believe generative AI is an incredibly powerful tool for Photoshop’s creative customers, and we are thrilled to start to infuse this transformative capability throughout the product beginning today. The first step is a complete reimagination of selections and layers.

- It is easy, fast, and fun to create realistic results in seconds.
- On the other hand, AI offers a new way of enhancing creativity and expression that could transform the way people communicate and consume digital media.
- Costin stressed that since the company mostly trained the models with images from its Adobe Stock collection, they are commercially safe for businesses to use.
- We are taking a creator-focused approach to generative AI and developing Firefly around our AI ethics principles of accountability, responsibility and transparency.
- Firefly uses generative AI to allow users to create or modify images, graphics, and other media through simple text prompts.
Of course it is, but probably not of photography; not the one I’m interested in anyway. It’s a clear and succinct introduction to a wonderful new Photoshop feature. What is the minimum spec (lowest power drain) graphics card needed to run this? My current one won’t even run the new Lightroom Denoise Ai and I don’t want to also have to upgrade the power supply, – or buy a new PC ! I simply find it ridiculous to complain about «thought policy» because Photoshop doesn’t let you create fake poop.
How to use Generative Fill in your image
Report Result optionPrompts may also unintentionally generate problematic or offensive images; in such cases you can use the Report Result option to let us know. Fujfilm has updated its lens roadmap for its GF series of lenses for medium format. It’s added a 500mm F5.6 lens, due to arrive in 2024, and a standard power zoom for video shooters. The sensor in the Yakov Livshits Fujifilm GFX 100 II is a faster variant of the one used in the GFX 100 and 100S, and new offset microlenses should improve image quality in the corners. Sony debuted a new CineAlta cinema camera, called ‘Burano’. Based on the Venice 2 camera, the Burano is smaller and lighter and is the first PL-mount cinema camera to include in-body image stabilization.
Similarly, you can’t just pick up an AI-generated object and move it, unless you manually cut it out, as the background and shadowing will be relocated too. We’ve also added a flower bed, picnic table, clouds and puddle to this image, all using Generative Fill. They mostly do the job, and are especially impressive given adding them took just a couple of minutes, but we have questions about where that guy’s legs have gone. Both have a good amount of clear space for objects to be inserted, and both offer the challenges of sunlight, shadows, reflections and complex textures like grass and tarmac.
Adobe also announced a new compensation structure for Adobe Stock contributors whose images helped train Firefly’s AI models. The company said eligible Stock contributors will receive an annual bonus based on their overall contribution to the platform, including their all-time approved image count and assets licensed within a 12-month span. This initiative aims to reward creators for their role in advancing Adobe’s AI capabilities.
