Now deeply integrated into creative workflows across Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Express and Adobe Experience Cloud, Firefly’s foundational generative AI models can be used to create stunning content safe for commercial use.
Adobe has announced the launch of the new Firefly web application, a playground for exploring AI-assisted creative expression. After a successful six-month beta, Firefly-powered capabilities are now deeply integrated into creative workflows across Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Express and Adobe Experience Cloud.
Firefly’s foundational generative AI models for images, text effects and vectors support text prompts in over 100 languages and enable users around the world to create stunning content that is designed to be safe for commercial use.
Adobe Firefly-powered features are now available in several Creative Cloud apps, including Generative Fill and Generative Expand in Photoshop, Generative Recolor in Illustrator and Text to Image and Text Effects in Adobe Express. These native integrations empower users to experiment, ideate and create in completely new ways. Adobe will continuously bring Firefly-powered features into more Creative Cloud apps and workflows for photography, imaging, illustration, design, video, 3D and beyond.
“With over two billion generations, creators amazed us with their engagement and feedback to the Firefly beta, inspiring us to deliver generative AI capabilities that are designed to be commercially safe and seamlessly integrated into the interfaces customers love,” said Ely Greenfield, chief technology officer, Digital Media at Adobe.
The general availability of Firefly for Enterprise brings groundbreaking generative AI capabilities to Adobe GenStudio and Express for Enterprise. In addition, Adobe is working with Enterprise customers to enable them to customize models using their own assets and brand-specific content. Customers will also get access to Firefly APIs, embedding the power of Firefly into their own ecosystems and automation workflows. Firefly for Enterprise offers businesses the opportunity to obtain an intellectual property (IP) indemnification for content generated by most Firefly-powered workflows.
The next generation of Creative Cloud starts now with Firefly-powered features generally available in Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as AI-powered innovation in Premiere Pro and After Effects. To enable broad access to generative AI workflows, Creative Cloud paid plans now include the new Firefly web application, a playground for exploring AI-assisted creative expression, and Express Premium, the all-in-one creativity app with new generative AI Text to Image and Text Effects features that make it fast, easy and fun to design and share standout social media posts, videos, images, PDFs, flyers, logos and more.
Express is the AI-first, all-in-one creativity app that makes it fast, easy and fun for any user to design and share standout content. Firefly features in Express, including Text to Image and Text Effects, are now commercially available to creators globally, revolutionizing how people and brands around the world turn ideas into standout content and stunning social media campaigns.
Adobe is introducing Adobe GenStudio, a new solution that combines the best of content ideation, creation, production, and activation to revolutionize the Enterprise content supply chain with the power of generative AI. Adobe GenStudio is a comprehensive, integrated solution for any Enterprise to supercharge and simplify their creation-to-activation process with generative AI capabilities and intelligent automation.
Top global brands including Accenture, IHG Hotels & Resorts, Mattel, NASCAR, NVIDIA, ServiceNow and Omnicom are already working with Adobe to explore how Firefly can help drive efficiencies, reduce costs, and accelerate their content supply chains.
"Adobe’s creative tools continue to play an important part in our design processes at Mattel, including on beloved brands like Barbie and Hot Wheels,” said Chris Down, EVP and Chief Design Officer at Mattel. “Adobe Firefly has enhanced our workflows with trusted capabilities, driving inspiration and productivity from ideation to execution."
Trust and Transparency in Content Generated With AI
Firefly will be made up of multiple models, tailored to serve customers with a wide array of skillsets and technical backgrounds, working across a variety of different use cases. Adobe’s first model, focused on images and text effects, was trained on Adobe Stock images, openly licensed content, and public domain content where copyright has expired and is designed to generate content safe for commercial use.
Future Adobe Firefly models will leverage a variety of assets, technology and training data from Adobe and others. As other models are implemented, Adobe will continue to prioritize countering potential harmful bias.
By default, Firefly includes Content Credentials on every asset created using Firefly to indicate that generative AI was used, bringing more trust and transparency to digital content. Content Credentials are verifiable details that serve as a digital “nutrition label.” They can show information including an asset’s name, creation date, tools used for creation and any edits made. Powered by free, open-source technology from the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), this data remains associated with content wherever it is used, published or stored, enabling proper attribution and helping consumers make informed decisions about digital content.
Introducing Generative Credits
Adobe is introducing a new credit-based model for generative AI across Creative Cloud offerings with the goal of enabling adoption of new generative image workflows powered by the Firefly Image model. Starting today, the Firefly web application, Express Premium and Creative Cloud paid plans now include an allocation of “fast” Generative Credits. Generative Credits are tokens that enable customers to turn a text-based prompt into image and vector creations in Photoshop, Illustrator, Express and the Firefly web application.
After the plan-specific number of “fast” Generative Credits is consumed, subscribers can continue to generate content at slower speeds, or buy additional “fast” Generative Credits through a Firefly paid subscription plan. Starting November 2023, Adobe plans for users to be able to purchase additional “fast” Generative Credits through a subscription pack.
