Over the past year, generative AI has completely transformed how we work and create Sadly, it has led to countless misuses and fake news. After recent cases of using Adobe Stock AI content to spread false information, the platform has announced new policies regarding AI images of real events. The company says the changes are necessary to prevent the misuse of AI-generated images to mislead or deceive people.
We all knew it was only a matter of time before Adobe started implementing its Firefly-powered generative fill-type features in its video products. I have to admit, I didn’t think it’d be quite so little time, but it looks like it’s coming soon.
At Adobe MAX, Adobe is showing off a sneak peek of some new features coming to Creative Cloud. Amongst them is “Project Fast Fill”, which brings Firefly generative AI features to Premiere Pro.
At the latest Adobe MAX conference in Los Angeles, Adobe announced it would bring even more AI to Creative Cloud. There will be more than 100 new features, including advanced AI capabilities, with three new Adobe Firefly models. You’ll see them in Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro, among others. So, let’s see what’s cooking in Adobe’s kitchen.
In an era increasingly dominated by deepfakes, voice cloning, and AI-generated images and video, it’s hard to tell what’s real anymore. Not to mention that people don’t use their critical thinking and even fail to notice when something is obviously fake.
To combat these issues, or at least contribute to the fight, Adobe has unveiled Content Credentials. It’s a new technology designed to restore trust in the content we consume daily. It’s a label added to content created with the help of AI, but there’s more under it. If you like, you can reveal the entire history of the image and its editing journey.
Ahead of next week’s Adobe Max event, Adobe is set to announce a pretty powerful editing tool. Of course, it’s AI-powered, and it lets you edit every piece of your image as if it were a separate layer. Just select the bit of your image, and start moving it around, changing its color and appearance, or remove it completely. Adobe has released a sneak-peek video, and I must admit, the tool looks pretty impressive.
Adobe Stock is asking photographers to send them photographs of bananas doing banana-type things in everyday situations. They’re on the hunt for a whopping 1,000 banana photos, and they’re willing to peel off some cash – $60, to be exact.
Don’t worry, Adobe hasn’t completely lost the plot. This fruity obsession is all part of Adobe’s mission to supercharge their generative AI tools, including Adobe Firefly and Generative Fill.
Adobe has been ordered by a court in Delaware to pay almost $33.8 million to a company called ViaTech Technologies over patent infringement. ViaTech brought the case to court in 2019 and it appears to be concluded, for now.
The company accused Adobe of infringing one of its patents related to the mechanism by which it licenses its Adobe Creative Cloud software to its customers. It appears, as though the jury sides with ViaTech.
After almost two years in beta, Adobe has officially released Photoshop on the web. This is a simplified and accessible version of the photo editing software, but apparently, it’s not that simplified. Considering that Generative Fill also got out of beta in the meantime, it has become a part of Photoshop for the web, too.
Adobe has decided that they’ve done enough testing with its Generative Fill feature. It was introduced into the Photoshop beta in June of this year. Now, three months later, it’s been added to the stable release of Photoshop CC 2024.
Don’t be so quick to celebrate just yet, though. It is limited in how much it will create for you. And after you hit your limit, speeds are throttled – unless you pay Adobe more money. It’s also still far from perfect.
Adobe’s Frame.io has announced some new features and tools to help both its enterprise and individual customers. The features include an updated comparison viewer and enterprise customers can now link directly to AWS S3 cloud storage.
New hardware compatibility has also been announced. This includes the recently announced Fujifilm GFX100 II (buy here), Atomos Ninja and Ninja Ultra (buy here) and Accsoon SeeMo and SeeMo Pro (buy here).
