How to use Generative Fill in Photoshop.


Use any selection tool to select an object or area in your image. Select the Generative Fill button in the Contextual Task Bar that appears.


Write a prompt describing the object or scene you want to generate in the text-entry prompt box. Or, leave it blank and Photoshop will fill in the selection based on the surroundings.


Click Generate. You’ll see thumbnail previews of variations generated based on your prompt, and a Generative Layer will be created in your Layers panel for non-destructive editing of your original image.

Tip: To generate even more options, click Generate again. You can also try editing your prompt to fine tune your results.
