Through my Eyes The Creative Portfolio of Jim Babbage Generative AI Adobe Firefly Comes to Photoshop!
CAI works together with the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity to bring transparency to digital content. The CAI is working with other tech companies and publishers to increase input regarding digital content, its origins, facts, and authors. Adobe’s artificial intelligence has enabled it to produce Firefly, a natural extension of its technology over the past 40 years. For ChatGPT and similar products, those concerns deal with the propensity of the models to «hallucinate» plausible-sounding but inaccurate information. Apple’s latest iPhones mix things up, but keep many things the same.
Adobe hasn’t specifically stated whether these limits will be lifted in the future, but given Firefly is only in beta mode, you should expect that these limitations are only temporary.

Adobe launches Firefly, its own generative AI tool
As for renting software, it’s technically called software as a service. And by the same reasoning you «rent» your electric power, your water, your cable TV service, your cell phone service, your insurance, your Netflix, your Hulu, your Spotify, etc. Does Photoshop CS6 allow you to open RAW files from the latest cameras? It’s been a while now, but it seems like the reason I finally moved on to the subscription plan is because of RAW support after I upgraded from an older camera… If Adobe didn’t apply some sort of content restrictions they would be vilified for that too.

The fish I added next is less plausible, but Firefly blended it well with the background. Costin explained that the team had looked at a token-based system, but the feedback from early testers was that this was too hard to explain to customers.
How does Adobe Firefly work?
If a company adds in a whole new category of features then it’s reasonable to assume they will ask customers to pay more money for it. Adobe adds a bunch of new generative AI features which cost a lot of money to develop, and you don’t think they would not have instituted a price increase? They banned me several times for multiple reasons, constantly coming up with new ones, even if I did everything in my power to follow their guidelines. They kept all those photos (about 6,000) and used them to train this Firefly product- I got an email about it. I was never paid for this of course, and I’m sure many others had their content stolen and were subsequently banned.I also noticed many commenters on here stating they haven’t raised their prices.

Before generating the new area of our image, we tweaked some additional settings within the generative fill tool. The next AI tool, generative fill, allows you to erase backgrounds or add inpainting to your images. You start by uploading an image, then adding or subtracting an area within the image you wish to change. Unlike other AI systems, Adobe doesn’t give you a way to add a negative prompt, which would be a great addition.
Adobe Jumps Into The Generative AI Race With Firefly Creative Support
Personally, I think it’s a bit odd that the software you’re paying for can refuse to apply some of its features because it doesn’t like the content of your photo. I have no problem working with people in a frame, but i guess tjhat the AI detect the lot of bare skin in the images and assumes the worst. As AI is not truly intelligence but just programmed and trained once, probably above a certain% of bare skin trigger the issue.I experience this mostly when trying to remove distracting elements near the lower parts of people. If I’ve 40 different shots to process and each of them have someone wearing hosiery with ladders (snag lines) throughout the hosiery which happens from wearing dresses with rough tulle, etc..

Getting Started With Adobe Firefly
If you pay for it every single year (and don’t own anything) are you paying the same? You see ‘tons of new features’ because you’re a PR person and that’s the PR. The reality is that in the last 10 years Adobe has added perhaps 4 worthwhile features to Ai; the blob brush, width tool, artboards and the shape builder. The software is still buggy as hell, crashes all the time and is single core, so only uses 10% of my Mac’s power and even simple actions can take an age.
Still, if there’s a better LR replacement out there, someone let me know. LR really blows hot and cold, it feels like they go through cycles of feature adding, which slows the software down, then optimising, which speeds it up. I still think it’s been one of the better priced software out there.
