In May, Adobe announced the integration of Firefly into the Photoshop (beta) application with Generative Fill, unlocking new creative potential for Photoshop customers. This also enabled users to add, expand, or remove content from images non-destructively, using simple text prompts. Since then, over 900 million images have been generated, and users have been delighted by a world beyond the lens, where dimensions can be expanded magically, pixels can be transformed, and edits can be made faster and more intuitively than ever.
Adobe is excited to announce that Firefly-powered features in Photoshop (beta) will now support text prompts in 100+ languages — enabling users around the world to bring their creative vision to life with text prompts in the language they prefer.
Adobe has also incorporated Photoshop’s Generative AI capabilities with Generative Expand, a new frictionless workflow dedicated to expanding images beyond their original aspect ratios.
Powered by the same Firefly-based technology as Generative Fill, Generative Expand enables users to seamlessly expand and resize any image by using the Crop tool. After clicking “Generate”, the empty space is filled with AI generated content that naturally blends with the existing image. This streamlined workflow enables users to create and ideate in Photoshop with Generative AI more quickly and intuitively than before.
Generative Expand in action
Suppose your subject is cut off, your image is not in the aspect ratio you want, or an object in focus is misaligned with other parts of the image — you can use Generative Expand to enlarge your canvas and get your image to look like anything you can imagine.
First, select the Crop tool and drag beyond the image’s original canvas to your desired aspect ratio. Generated content can be added with or without a text prompt. Without a prompt, click “Generate” in the Contextual Task Bar, and Photoshop will fill in the newly expanded canvas with generated content that seamlessly blends with the existing image.
When using a prompt, the image will be expanded and will include the content you entered into the prompt. Select your favourite variation, and the expanded image will be added non-destructively in a new Generative Layer.
With Generative Expand, you can spend less time editing and more time experimenting and adapting your images for your own creative needs. To ensure you have access to the updated language prompts and Generative Expand, update your Photoshop (beta) app today.
