As soon as a big factory makes a move, you will know if there is one.

In the first two months of the rapid development of AI, Adobe’s actions were always a bit slow compared to Microsoft and Google. Although Firefly was released as an AI tool, it only provided text generation and Vincent diagrams for the public to try out. "The video AI processing has always only been demonstrated.

Fortunately, today, Firefly ("Firefly") is officially open for public beta testing. The first stop is the old tool - Photoshop. This time "Firefly" has transformed into "Generative Fill" function integrated into the Beta version of PS, free for users try out. After using it, everyone found that Adobe really held back a big move, and immediately filled up the "AI productivity".

Adobe: Free, let everyone try it

Adobe is full of confidence this time. Unlike Microsoft's silent push to the insider channel when testing Microsoft 365 Copilot, they have integrated the "Generative Fill" tool into the Beta version of Photoshop desktop with great fanfare.

Users in non-country regions can register and try out this magical "firefly" for free through the official website link .

The magic of "creating something out of nothing" is here!

The traditional "PS" is more about "subtraction" on existing pictures. The tools of desalination, liquefaction, and stamping seem to be commonly used to reduce blemishes.

△Of course it is easier now with AI

But "Firefly" is here, we can now easily do "addition", and the usage is also very intuitive - first use the lasso tool to set a rough selection area, and then use the "Generative Fill" function to fill in the elements that need to be added , AI can help you turn "wanted" into reality.

△Select the constituency and enter the requirement "yellow lane markings"

"Generative Fill" can not only "add content" to the original elements, but also "extend content" in the blank drawing board. Still using this road cycling picture, we only need to set the new canvas size and select the In the transparent selection area, the "Generative Fill" function will automatically pop up the options. The easiest way is to tap lightly to let the road extend to both sides. It has to be said that the content of the generated part is well integrated with the original image, which not only conforms to the perspective aesthetics of the original image, but also "conforms to the meaning of the title and does not go beyond the outline" in terms of content.

Not only "complete", but also give you "choice"

Surprisingly, "Generative Fill" even provides multiple options, such as adding "Northern Lights" to this picture, or expanding the canvas to add a lake reflection, it can give us more options , We are not bound by AI to be creative, AI sometimes provides us with more possibilities.

Change the background, it's professional

In the past two years, AI matting has been developed at a high level. For Adobe, the addition of the "AI background change" function has become a logical "as it should be". Select objects (note! Now you can directly use AI to directly select object), enable the function, enter the request, and take effect, it's that simple.

Recalling the time when I was a child holding a mouse with a scroll wheel on Photoshop 6 and using the rope tool to select characters little by little, I can't help but sigh that technology has advanced so fast over the years.

It can be used at the beginning, this is "AI productivity"

Although we implement the above functions on some open source tools, whether it is "creating out of nothing" or "expanding the frame", we can find hot SD tutorials.

But no matter in terms of implementation efficiency and finished product effect, the "Generative Fill" that just came out of the Beta public test obviously has the posture of "the latecomer prevails". This also confirms why Adobe dared not to panic in the "AI arms race" in the first two months, because as a major software company with traditional creative tools, Adobe is well aware of the actual situation of production work. In real work, the most suitable effect can be produced in the shortest time, while avoiding copyright troubles. This is the appearance of AI tools that enterprises need.

Let AI be "the icing on the cake" in PS instead of "customer-based", which not only guarantees the original software basic disk and user experience, but also allows Adobe to catch up with the pace of AI. Obviously this time "Firefly" has been found in the direction it wants to fly.
