How to use Firefly as an AI art generator.

1 Sign up or log in to Adobe Firefly.

To get started, log in to Firefly with your Adobe account or sign up for an Adobe account if you don’t have one. Signing up for a free account takes only a moment and will also give you access to other apps, like Adobe Express.

2 Browse examples and see what you can do.

When you log into Firefly, you’ll see a variety of example images. If you hover over them, you’ll also see the prompts other users typed to create them. Take a moment to browse the examples and click the prompts. When you do, you’ll see four different AI-generated images created by that prompt. After you get a sense of how prompts are worded and what they can do, input your own.

3 Input your desired text or description to make your first piece of AI-generated art.

You can put all kinds of things in your text prompt. Try describing not just what you want to see, but how you want it to look. You can also specify style or medium for your image. If you type “portrait of an old man that looks like a black-and-white photo,” for example, Firefly will generate exactly that.

4 Customise the generated art by adjusting the settings.

Once you have your AI-generated art, you can change its appearance by applying different styles and effects. Firefly also features a variety of other tools and menus where you can customise colour, lighting and aspect ratio for your AI-generated art. And, you can always tweak your text prompt and get some new images.

5 Save, export and share your AI generated artwork.

Once you have your image, you can save it or copy it to your clipboard. Or submit it to the Firefly gallery for other users to admire and appreciate. Keep in mind that each piece of AI-generated art will also include a small note that it was created using Firefly. (When you use Firefly, you get access to a set number of generative credits.

Questions? We have answers.

An AI art generator is a type of technology that can create digital images with generative artificial intelligence. Firefly uses text prompts to generate artwork, which can then be customised into a variety of styles. Images can look like pop art, marble sculptures, clay ceramics or watercolour paintings, just to name a few.

AI art generators are a type of generative artificial intelligence. Like other types of artificial intelligence, generative AI relies on large datasets to produce the desired result, such as a digital artwork, creating something totally new — all triggered by a single text prompt. The current Firefly generative AI model is trained on a dataset from Adobe Stock, openly licensed content and public domain content where the copyright has expired.

Adobe Firefly is a fast, intuitive way to create AI-generated art in a variety of styles. It lets you create detailed, stylish images with a text prompt. You can quickly customise your images with other Firefly tools or fine-tune it even further in Creative Cloud apps like Adobe Photoshop.
