Adobe Enters The AI-Generated Art Scene With Firefly

Adobe released a beta version of its AI art generator Firefly, empowering tools like Photoshop with the power of artificial intelligence.

It enables users to generate videos, audio, images, brushes, and more using text prompts. As a result, this AI makes it easier than ever to create and edit content. 

More importantly, Adobe Firefly lets users add a “Do Not Train” tag to their projects, preventing the company from using their art to train models.

The Adobe Firefly webpage shows off the capabilities of the beta version. The first one it shows is its content-aware image generation.

The website shows a demo GIF where a user selects a lighthouse in an image. Then, the user uses AI to replace that building with similar-looking ones.

The user scrolls down and selects the empty space under the image. Next, he types a text prompt so that the AI can generate an underwater city beneath. 

Doing this the conventional way takes hours because you must search for or create other images of a lighthouse and an underwater city.

Then, you must adjust color grading and manipulate layers to ensure the new objects seem like natural parts of the image. In contrast, Adobe Firefly does all that in seconds!

Firefly makes it easier to create vectors and brushes from images. Highlight a logo with AI to turn it into a brush so that you can easily stamp it on Photoshop pictures.

Moreover, the new AI works on videos, helping you change the mood, atmosphere, and weather in a clip. 

For example, a demo showed Adobe Firefly turning a summer photo into a winter landscape with realistic snowfall.

Adobe’s artificial intelligence also makes life easier for online marketers. Its demo GIF showed a user replacing a model for an ad by dragging another into the image.

Artists have been worrying about AI copyright due to AI image generators. Fortunately, it seems Adobe Firefly provides a solution with the “Do Not Train” tag. 

Add it to a project’s Content Credentials to ensure Adobe does not use it to train its AI model. In the future, the company plans to apply the tool to 3D compositions.


Adobe Firefly adds AI features to its editing software, making it easier to improve photos and videos. However, you need a Creative Cloud subscription to use it.

At the time of writing, Creative Cloud costs ₱3,963.00 ($82.49) monthly or ₱29,904.00 ($599.88) yearly.
