The creative software giant announced it's bringing Generative Recolour, a new feature that enables designers to change colours of graphics using text prompts, to Illustrator. The feature marks the first integration of Adobe Firefly, the company's family of generative AI models, in the vector graphics editor and design app.


General Recolour leverages the capabilities of Firefly to automate previously manual colour processes in the development of new logos, packaging, illustrations or website layouts, among other design outputs. Allowing us to have more time for more creative tasks.


"Adobe Illustrator is the tool behind many of the world’s most iconic designs, from brand logos to product packaging," said Ashley Still, Senior Vice President of Digital Media at Adobe. "Firefly will help customers accelerate their creative process and save countless hours, while facilitating rapid ideation, experimentation and asset creation."

Designers can, for instance, type prompts like "noon in the desert" or "midnight in the jungle", and the AI translates it into custom themes to recolour vector artwork. The feature allows them to experiment with different colours, palettes and themes to capture the look and feel they want without needing to tediously enter a lot of inputs. At the same time, they can generate numerous colour variations from a single artwork file for use across different media channels.


The latest version of Illustrator also adds a host of brand-new features and innovations, including Retype, a feature that identifies the fonts used in raster images and outlined text. The release also includes new Layers functionalities and improvements to Image Trace, making creation faster and easier.


Generative Recolour and Retype, along with the changes to Layers and Image Trace, are available as beta features in Illustrator today.


Adobe previously rolled out Generative Fill in Photoshop, a feature that lets editors expand the borders of an image by having the generative AI fill in the empty spaces.
