The advantage of generating AI art with Adobe Firefly.

  • Firefly creates beautiful artistic and photorealistic images based on simple text prompts typed into a browser-based interface — perfect to help speed up creative workflows.

How to use Adobe Firefly.

It’s easy to get started and easy to use Adobe Firefly. With the simple browser-based interface, Firefly is as quick as typing in what you want to see. Ask for a “sleeping bear in nightgown and nightcap” and you’ll get four versions of that in a few seconds. Then, adjust your prompt and see variations in the color of nightgown or the breed of bear before using other tools to fine-tune your creation.

How to refine your AI creations in Adobe Firefly.

Add additional text to your prompt.

More specific prompts deliver more specific results. “Create a tiny yorkie dog looking cute” will give you a cute puppy, but ask for it to be wearing a bowtie and a hat and prepare for cuteness overload.

Choose the content type.

Firefly gives you three options for the content type it will generate in the Text to image model: Photo, Graphic, or Art. Select from these different options to see variations of any prompt that look more like graphic designs or professional photos.

Tweak your results with Styles, Lighting, and more.

Once you have your generated creations, whether they are artistic images or photorealistic, you can refine them with tools in Firefly. Choose from styles like cubism and maximalism in the Styles menu, which features different art movements, and themes. You can even choose different materials like fur or clay to adjust the texture of the image.

Refine the Lighting options, as well as the Color and Tone of an image, to explore different looks for your results. And choose from photo compositions like Close up, Shot from above, and others to try out a variety of views.

Mix and match options from these menus, or stack them together, to create even more possibilities for each text to image prompt.
