Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been rapidly expanding its services across various sectors. Novel services like ChatGPT and Midjourney along with DALL-E 2 have gained immense popularity in recent times. Adobe Photoshop has joined this growing trend with its remarkable generative AI platform, Firefly. Adobe announced Firefly a few months ago, and now it has become a reality, integrated into Photoshop through its new Generative Fill function.
The integration of Firefly is a significant development for Photoshop, rivalling the popularity of Midjourney and DALL-E 2. It is a pretty intuitive tool to use, even for non-experts, with its Generative Fill tool allowing users to create images from scratch. The feature is impressive, allowing users to integrate elements smoothly into the existing image without making them seem odd.
If one wants to fill gaps and add additional elements, such as a sign on a street, Generative Fill provides the Outpainting tool to complete the task seamlessly. The artificial intelligence of Photoshop comprehends contextual elements, tonality, and other details to include all kinds of elements that remain natural.
Generative Fill is available to users in a limited way, with specific parameters and restrictions. The tool can only be used by adults aged 18 years and above, and the parameters should be written in English. There is a critical limitation that images created with this AI platform cannot be used for commercial purposes as well. Nevertheless, it is a significant milestone in the field of AI editing tools.
However, with Adobe’s history of continuous updates, it is just a matter of time before this AI editing tool evolves and gains more capabilities. In summary, Adobe’s Firefly AI integration in Photoshop sets a new horizon for the quality of photo editing.
