Adobe Firefly is a family of creative generative AI models planned to appear in Adobe Creative Cloud products including Adobe Express, Photoshop and Illustrator. Firefly’s first model is trained on a dataset of Adobe stock, openly licensed content and content in the public domain where the copyright has expired and uses simple text descriptions to generate amazing images, unique text effects and more.
Whether you want an image of an antiquated car engine or a retro futuristic boom box, the text to image feature can generate it for you. And it’s only the start. This Firefly model lets users adjust aspects of the initial outputs with a series of in-app tools.
Many AI-powered image generators offer a single function, but Firefly offers a range of capabilities including text effects and the ability to add and remove elements from an image. In the future, we plan to offer even more features — including tools powered by Firefly within Creative Cloud apps — such as the ability to adjust the mood of a video, remove distractions from photos and adding texture to 3D objects.
Outside of Stable Diffusion, it is important to know the pros and cons of other generative AI tools such as DALL·E and Midjourney when compared against Firefly.
