How to stop Firefly from generating content specific to my country

Hi Everyone


I live in Switzerland and love using Firefly, but it keeps making everything Swiss! Every person is wearing traditional Swiss outfits making them look like they are up every morning at 5 a.m. to yodle in the mountains, which are always featured in the backgrounds. I live in the city and nobody dresses like this in the entire country except a poor few souls on national day. Gahhh! Even though it's a tiny bit hilarious that I was trying to generate photos of stand-up comedians and they were dressed like cowherds (see attachment). Is there any way to deactivate this feature?

 

Thanks!

This issue has been discussed in these threads:

 

Union Jack appearing in images 

Images including people are severely culturally out of touch 

 

Adobe basically had three choices:

  • Make everyone look the same (so unlike a large percentage of the user base)
  • Have every image have a diversity of people who appear to be from many locations
  • Create people who appear to be closest to the region/location where the user is

 

The decision Adobe made is to try to make results appear more culturally relevant based on where the user is located. There are advantages and disadvantages of doing that, and in some cases, the results can be far from what you are looking for. You can change your prompts to be more descriptive of the people and objects to override that region/culture behaviour. It would be nice for Adobe to allow this to be disabled or overridden with another location/region or completely diverse subjects.

 

This can be overridden by specifying regions/cultures/races in the prompt.

Hi There


Thank you for taking the time to respond, and thanks for the links, I was trying to search for this with keywords like "national" but didn't get anywhere. Okay, so there's no real way to turn it off. It's really persistant, it takes a lot of creative prompting to get past the stereotypes (and I mean, making it regional is one thing, but this is a Switzerland that only exists in picture books). Even when I try to place people in a corporate environment, there are the Alps peaking in through the windows. I guess we it's early days though, and like I said, in one way it's rather amusing.

 

Have a nice weekend!

It does seem that Firefly has gone too far with regard to localization. It would be nice to be able to specify a "generic modern city" for instance.

It's supposed to be easier than that, they shouldn't overcomplicate things.

Instead of making people look the same, or based on location. They can just make it based on location but if we say "I want a white couple holding hands", they shouldn't return a asian couple dressed in japanese kimonos with the mount Fuji behind, just because I'm in Japan. Now days people need to have this freedom. It's like some websites that doesn't offer language selection just because they assume everyone in Japan speak and read Japanese. It's just bad UX.
