Image generators using generative artificial intelligence are now famous thanks in particular to DALL-E or Bing Image Creator. Since then, many competitors, including Adobe Firefly, entered the scene. And now Adobe is rolling out major feature and availability updates to Firefly.
Adobe announced Tuesday the marketing of Firefly for Generative AI, after a six-month beta period. With Adobe Firefly, users can use text prompts in over 100 languages to generate images, text effects, and vectors.
“With over 2 billion generations, creators amazed us with their engagement and feedback on the Firefly beta, inspiring us to deliver generative AI features designed to be commercially safe and seamlessly integrated in the interfaces customers love,” said Ely Greenfield, Adobe’s chief technology officer.
The Firefly model is trained on Adobe Stock images and public domain content with expired copyrights
One of the key differentiators between Firefly and other AI image generators, like DALL-E, is that the Firefly model is trained on Adobe Stock images and public domain content that has copyrights. expired, which ensures that the content used to train the models was done with the permission of the creator.
Additionally, Adobe Stock contributors will receive compensation for any content used to train the commercial Firefly AI model. Adobe describes this mechanic as a way to establish a fair partnership with image creators. Content references will be included in all images generated to serve as a “nutrition label” with verifiable details that show the name of an asset, date created, tools used in creation, and modifications made.
All of these measures address the main controversies surrounding AI image generators, including the spread of false information through realistic images (deep fakes) and the misappropriation of others’ work to train the models.
Test on the web
Adobe also unveiled a new Firefly web app that lets users test features for themselves – what the company describes as “a playground for exploring AI-powered creative expression.” Users just need to visit theWeb applicationlog in or create an Adobe account, then tinker with as many AI models as they want.
Users can also access Firefly-supported features in Adobe Creative Cloud and Adove Express, including Generative Fill and Generative Expand in Photoshop, Generative Recolor in Illustrator, and Text to Image and Text effects in Adobe Express, according to the press release. .
Finally, Adobe introduced Generative Credits, which gives paying customers of the Firefly web app, Express Premium, and Creative Cloud an allocation of tokens for generative AI image workflows. Once specific generative credits are exhausted, subscribers have the option to continue using generative AI features with a slower experience or purchase additional subscription packs.
