The creativity software giant announced it's bringing a new AI-powered Generative Fill feature to Photoshop later in the year. It touts the Firefly-powered feature would allow users to easily add, extend or remove content from images in seconds through text prompts.


Firefly is Adobe's AI image generator, trained on Adobe Stock’s hundreds of millions of professional-grade and licensed images, which helps ensure it won't generate content that would infringe on individuals' or brands' intellectual properties.


"By integrating Firefly directly into workflows as a creative co-pilot, Adobe is accelerating ideation, exploration and production for all of our customers," said Ashley Still, Senior Vice President of Digital Media at Adobe. "Generative Fill combines the speed and ease of generative AI with the power and precision of Photoshop, empowering customers to bring their visions to life at the speed of their imaginations."

Adobe says Generative Fill is capable of automatically matching perspective, lighting and style of images, enabling new creative workflows. It also creates content in generative layers, allowing users to iterate upon or reverse any of the generated changes without impacting the original image.


The feature essentially works like OpenAI's DALL-E 2 model, which features inpainting and outpainting capabilities. Inpainting is when the AI generates content within a section of the image, while outpainting is when it extends beyond the image.

To ensure content and data transparency, Generative Fill supports Content Credentials, which disclose whether a piece of content was created by a human, AI-generated or AI-edited. Content Credentials are associated with digital content wherever it is published, used or stored, enabling greater transparency and proper attribution.


The Generative Fill feature is now available in Photoshop's desktop beta app today, with a general rollout coming sometime in the second half of 2023. Generative Fill is also now available as a module within the Firefly beta app.


Apart from Generative Fill, Adobe is adding new capabilities to its popular photo-editing software, including new adjustment presets, a contextual taskbar, a remove tool and enhanced gradients.
