Generative AI continues to conquer the world by leaps and bounds, so it was only a matter of time before it appeared in Photoshop. Adobe has announced a new Generative Fill tool that will appear in the photo editor later this year. The company promises a “new magical approach,” as you’ll be able to add, remove, and expand visual content using text descriptions.
Generative Fill is based on Firefly generative artificial intelligence technologies from Adobe. In the video above you can see examples of using the new functionality. You can change existing parts of the image, and draw new parts of the scene, and the program will offer several generated options to choose from. The company notes that the tool will try to preserve the perspective, lighting, and style of the original scene, allowing you to radically change the image with minimal effort.
To try to separate its AI work from others on an ethical level, the company says its current-generation model only trains on Adobe Stock images and other “public content without copyright restrictions.” In addition, AI images created in Photoshop will be encoded with an invisible digital signature indicating that they were created by AI.
Generative Fill will be available in Photoshop beta starting today. Adobe adds that the feature will be generally available in the second half of 2023. Generative Fill can also be tested in a separate module Adobe Firefly.
