Photoshop’s generative AI feature can now expand images seamlessly
Whether you’re aiming to accentuate the blue in someone’s eyes, match lipstick shade to an outfit, or experiment with hair colors without a real-world commitment, Generative Fill is the answer. With its unparalleled versatility, Generative Fill has the potential to revolutionize how we perceive photo editing. Imagine having an old photograph, treasured but tarnished with time, marred by blemishes and ambient noise. Generative Fill can rejuvenate such photographs, restoring them to their original grandeur in seconds. If you’ve ever dreamt of capturing the perfect reflection in a serene water body or designing an out-of-the-box border to make your image stand out, this tool can make those dreams a reality. With simple text prompts, you can now seamlessly add, extend, or remove content from your images, all while working non destructively.
Not only does the new content match the original photo perfectly, but Generative Fill even kept the shallow depth of field so that the background and the immediate foreground are nicely blurred. Then to add the right side of the canvas to the selection, hold Shift on your keyboard and drag a selection outline around it. Again make sure to include some of the image in the selection. Then drag out a selection outline around the canvas on the left of the image.
Removing part of your image using Generative Fill
Another cool feature of Photoshop AI’s generative fill is the ability to remove objects in your photos. Let’s say you have a perfect image minus a few blemishes. Using AI, Photoshop will remove aspects of your image and fill it with surrounding pixels in the image.
I found that since this was a full-sized photo, extending my selection by 30 pixels into the original photo yielded the best results. To access Photoshop AI generative fill tool is a simple process which requires you to have an Adobe account and the Adobe Creative Cloud installed on your computer. Follow Yakov Livshits the above steps and you can easily get access and start using and enjoying the generative fill tool. Interesting technology, but I wish they would remove the violation guidelines. Me and my kids were just trying to have some fun and trying to simply add poop to a picture violated Adobe’s guidelines.
Enabling Generative Fill
When you have entered a text prompt click the Generate button in the taskbar. To create a more concise image more adjectives can be entered to help better define the object you desire, such as “Pink Cherry Blossom Tree”. Below in the example image we have entered the text prompt “Pink Tree” to create Generative Fill. Enter a description of the object you would like to have generated in the Generative Fill taskbar. The Gerenative Fill button will automatically appear when you have an active selection.
This will not replace the version of Photoshop you currently have but will open a new version. By using the Photoshop app and Generative Fill, you become an essential contributor to shaping the future of these transformative tools. Your feedback and insights help refine and improve the technology, making it even more powerful and user-friendly.
Consistency of Characters, Objects, and Styles with Generative AI
The company has integrated Firefly, its family of creative AI models, into Photoshop, with the rest of its Creative Cloud portfolio to follow. Although Match Fonts is a helpful tool, there’s room for growth. It could benefit from expanding Yakov Livshits its character set support and perhaps even incorporating an option to detect mixed typefaces in a selection. The technology is getting there, and as machine learning algorithms become more sophisticated, the tool will only improve.

The Generative Fill tool and its counterparts offer a compelling blend of innovation and artistic exploration. While there are considerations and challenges to navigate, the benefits of these tools far outweigh the limitations. Explore the possibilities of generative AI in Photoshop. Don’t be afraid to experiment and discover new creative avenues. The world of generative AI is waiting for you to unlock its potential.
Get Creative with Generative Fill
The five-lens range will be available for E-mount, RF-mount, L-mount and M-mount cameras. The sensor in the Fujifilm GFX 100 II is a faster variant of the one used in the GFX 100 and 100S, and new offset microlenses should improve image quality in the corners. In a year when it seemed as if all the details about the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro were leaked beforehand, we were surprised at many of the camera details that emerged.
Photoshop AI will analyze the selected area and use its deep learning algorithms to generate new content that matches the surrounding context. This may take a few moments, depending on the image’s complexity and your computer’s processing power. To begin using Generative Fill, you need to make a selection around the area you want to modify or replace.
Doing so will install the Creative Suite control panel on your computer. Open the Creative Cloud dashboard, then navigate to the Apps tab. From there, search for Photoshop in the Available in your plan section of the dashboard. If you happen to reach your limit, you won’t be charged extra—keep creating, although you may notice slower generation speeds. Experience the power of Generative Fill upon launching the app, by stepping through a short tutorial showing you how to transform a scene using a preloaded asset. You can now view the variations in the Properties panel and click on the thumbnail preview to see the results on your image.
Don’t think it was mentioned in the article or I missed it. If so, then I presume that I am giving any image I use this feature on to Adobe, at least for training their AI. I don’t have this type of software yet, but when I get it I will label any pictures that I significantly alter as such.
And that’s the fastest way to extend both sides of your image using Generative Fill in Photoshop. In the Layers panel, we see the new Generative layer above the original photo. Grab the Rectangular Marquee Tool from the toolbar, again like we did before. Then to extend both sides of the canvas at once, hold the Alt key (the Option key on a Mac) on your keyboard and drag out one side of the crop border. Photoshop’s Remove Tool is the perfect companion to Generative Fill and you can learn much more about it in my separate Remove Tool tutorial.
- Until recently, all of those tasks were possible but they required advanced Photoshop skills.
- This eliminates previously laborious tasks, making them swift and simple.
- The lighting and shadow on the UFO were appropriate to the scene, but it’s this next AI request that will really showcase the AI in action.
- When you open Photoshop, you will notice that there are some new panels included for generating image prompts.
- Now that I’m happy with how the magic is blending into the artwork around the foreground hand.
Above $2500 cameras tend to become increasingly specialized, making it difficult to select a ‘best’ option. We case our eye over the options costing more than $2500 but less than $4000, to find the best all-rounder. Well, it looks like I have now the solution for the lack of dedicated time to go outside and take photos, I have just to imagine and let the AI do the rest… To me, photography is about capturing a fleeting moment under the right angle and in the right conditions. That takes time, dedication, some talent, and a bit of luck. Frankly, I couldn’t care less what “artists” do with poop.
