Adobe Plans to Offer AI-powered Image Generation Tools

Adobe plans to place a tool for full artificial intelligence image generation in its Photoshop software later this year.

Several creative professionals are using Adobe’s subsciption price of Photoshop software for accessing Adobe’s image and video editing tools. Adobe faces rising competition from startups such as Microsoft-backed OpenAI, Midjourney and Stability AI, all of which offer services that can generate images from text prompts.

Image Creator in Microsoft Designer can handle any style or format if you want to create AI generated art for your next presentation or poster, or generate the perfect photo. It is free from Microsoft AI.

Adobe is developing its own image-generation AI system called Firefly, which is trained on data that Adobe has rights to, in order to avoid copyright infringement claims against users.

Adobe previously released image-generation tools in Photoshop that can fill in or expand parts an existing image. Adobe — at a conference in London on Tuesday — said full image generation will come later this year, based on a new AI system called Firefly Image 3.

Much of Adobe’s focus has been on speeding up the work of professionals who use its software. The new image-generation tool will have the ability to tap a user’s uploaded image as a reference for the general composition of an image, Reuters news report said.

For example, a designer could make a quick sketch of a scene on a napkin, snap a photo of that napkin with a smartphone and then ask Photoshop to generate fully featured images in a variety of styles, said Ely Greenfield, chief technology officer for digital media at Adobe.

That’s after a court ordered his social media company X to take down footage of an alleged terrorist attack in Sydney.

“Rather than having to very carefully describe exactly what goes where and try to make sure that I’m specifying the things I want things and that I don’t, it’s borrowing from the reference. So this is an amazingly powerful capability,” Ely Greenfield said.

Adobe said a test “beta” version of the software is available to some users on Tuesday but did not give a date for general availability.
