The 2024 version of Photoshop released yesterday adds groundbreaking new Generative AI capabilities (magically powered by Adobe Firefly), enabling you to add, extend, or remove stunning content from your photos and images non-destructively, using simple text prompts to achieve realistic results. And this could be one of the shortest posts we’ve ever published, because the five-minute video below from Russell Brown speaks volumes. Just watch! You won’t believe your eyes:
We know – bonkers, right? It is no hyperbole to say this is a quantum leap forward. And if you’re like us, you must have a thousand questions… How does it work? What more can it do? Where does the AI engine get its source content? Is it commercially safe? Are the source creators’ rights protected? What are the recommended tips and tricks for using it? How can you tell if an image has been created with Artificial Intelligence?
This essential help page should answer most of those questions… (Any others, just leave a comment down below.)
Generative Fill creates astonishing content which is sourced from Adobe Stock and public domain images, and is designed to be safe for commercial use. It works with straightforward text prompts in over 100 global languages. Adobe’s blog post explains Generative Fill further, as well as gives additional examples of what you can do with this amazing new functionality:
Four years ago, we published an April Fools’ joke about an (imaginary) new Photoshop feature called “Content-Aware Content” where “you just draw a big box and it puts all your content in for you. Whatever you want, whatever you’re thinking of – it shows up automatically. Boom, a little clean-up and you’re done.” It was a joke; nothing we ever thought we’d see… But here, now, that exact vision has (somehow) become a reality. Truth is stranger than fiction!
Now go get it – Photoshop 2024 is out of beta, now shipping and here today:
Creating will never be the same!
Generative Fill and Generative Expand are available immediately in the brand new CC 2024 version of the Photoshop desktop app. Download it now and if you don’t have a subscription, then you’ll get a fully-functional free trial for seven days at no cost.
Impressively, Generative AI is also now available in Photoshop on the web, which runs in a browser.
