Photoshop gets awesome new feature

If you work with pictures on a PC, laptop or smartphone, you can hardly avoid Photoshop. Now the well-known program starts the next step in terms of image processing. With Adobe’s own Firefly AI, photoshop should be easier than ever. The developers have thought of an important detail right away.

Photoshop trumps: Impressive AI image processing is launched

Photoshop is one of the most powerful programs in the field of image software – and is now going one better. With Firefly developer Adobe has its own artificial intelligence up its sleeve, which is now making its first steps with Photoshop. First information show: The AI ​​charges immediately.

The basic principle is simple: By text command give it to the AI instructionswho they then implemented directly in the image without loss of time. The corresponding function is called “Generative Fill”. According to Adobe, new content can be added to images, entire images can be expanded or unwanted content can be removed. The manufacturer shows how easy and fast this should work in the video:

Simply mark elements or image areas, enter the editing request in the text field and the task is already done – quite impressive. As is the speed at which the AI ​​can alter your images. According to Adobe, Photoshop users will be able to in the future create new content and creative images “as fast as you can type.”

The AI ​​works with “generative levels”. Additional content is inserted digitally separately from the original image. For example, you can switch back and forth between different effects and changes without wasting time. If the desired result cannot be achieved, users restore the original “loss-free” at any time, promises Adobe in a message.

Big problem identified: Adobe ensures security for images

Adobe also solved a key problem in the development of Firefly’s generative AI: “The AI ​​was trained on millions of licensed, high-resolution images from Adobe Stock to ensure that Firefly will not generate content based on the intellectual property of another person or brand”according to the company.

This should provide legal certainty for users, since the AI ​​should not be able to infringe the copyrights of others – a potential one Advantage over open source AI, where this danger can hardly be ruled out, at least so far. In addition, images created by Firefly are to be provided with digital marks. In this way it can be understood whether the images are about real photos or content generated by an AI.

Photoshop’s Generative Fill is now available as a beta version for the desktop. A web version of the Firefly AI is also in open beta. The general launch of AI features in Photoshop is for the second half of 2023 intended.
