In this tutorial, I’ll examine the generative AI tools in Photoshop and on the Firefly website. I’ll see how you can use these tools to modify your photos or existing images or to create entirely new images.

Adobe‘s AI model is less controversial than models like Midjourney or Stable Diffusion because of the way the system was trained. Adobe Firefly, and so the AI tools in Photoshop, have been trained on Adobe stock footage, and even though there has been some controversy around the way that this was announced to the Adobe stock footage contributors, they were only told after the model had been trained and Firefly was out, Adobe aims to make a fairer AI model with compensation for the training data contributors.
