The Lightroom team is sharing an early look at Generative Remove, which makes it easier to remove unwanted objects and distractions, even on complex backgrounds, with a simple brush stroke. Generative Remove is powered by Firefly AI.
 
How to use Generative Remove on a desktop:

  • You can find Generative Remove under the newly renamed Remove panel (aka “Heal”).
  • Make sure the “generative AI” checkbox is enabled before you start brushing (note: when unchecked, Lightroom will use Content-Aware Remove to fill your brushed spots). 
  • By default, you will be given a moment to refine your selection with an add or subtract brush. Remember to include shadows for a more accurate result! You can also skip this step by holding down ‘CTRL’ on windows or ‘CMD’ on mac as you finish your brush stroke. 
  • Once you’re ready to apply and have accepted the terms, Generative Remove will use Firefly AI to remove your distractions and intelligently fill in the space that’s left by the removed objects. 
  • Note: stable internet connection is required to use this feature.
  • Generative Remove also lets you choose from multiple variations, so you can pick the one you like best, giving you full creative control. 

    Checkout the FAQ and Best Practices
 
Please give it a try and share feedback and/or report variations in this community forum. It would greatly help to include details like which app you are using (i.e., Lightroom Classic or Camera Raw) and other system details. Our team will continually monitor this thread to track issues to improve the future experience.

Update:
Here are some tips if you are having issues with the feature replacing your object instead of removing it. 
  • Enlarge your selection - if your brush stroke is too tight, you will have unexpected results.
  • Remember that removing an object means painting over it, its shadow, its reflection, and any non-contiguous pieces. If you leave behind a shadow, a reflection, or a disconnected piece (e.g., a hand on a shoulder), the AI will attempt to create something to cast the shadow, reflect, or complete the unbrushed discontinuous item. You can avoid these issue by following the guidance provided in this linked tutorial. https://www.lightroomqueen.com/generative-remove-replace
  • The recommended order for applying is: Denoise - Heal (includes Generative AI Remove) - Crop/Edit - AI Selective edits. If you deviate from that you may see the remove object remains a aghost image. If this occurs you will have to use Update AI Settings, whcih can be found under the Develop module 'Settings' menu.

Love the feature, but the remove doesn't always remove.  It just replaces with some other object.

I have not had luck with it actually removing anything either. It replaces a trash can with a slightly different trash can.

Thanks John - that might be the issue. The things that didn't get removed were at the edge of the photo. Photoshop handled it with zero problem, so I would have expected Lightroom to do the same.

Same here. When it works, it's great. But I'm trying to remove a car, and all I get are other cars to replace it. 😞

@Vic-86 

 

If the AI model is replacing instead of removing, then it's very likely that you've not fully selected/masked the item to be removed. Shadows, reflections and projections not included in your selection/mask will also cause the AI model to replace.

 

You can see how to avoid this in the below linked tutorial.

I, too, have experienced difficultry removing people. Firefly wants to replace the people I'm trying to remove with different people.  I've been having better luck removing objects.

A Remoção Gerativa também permite que você escolha entre várias variações, porem nao permite ainda que voce diga o que deseja , fiz um teste e ele me trouxe muitas variações mas nenhuma delas estava a contento.

Great start! I love the addition of this tool to LRCC 13.3 - amazing that Adobe was able to slap this technology onto RAW files. 

 

The first improvement that I see could be made is a feathering option for the selection. The transitions under light fall-off are still quite hard-edged and noticeable.

Sweet!

Doesn't work to start by defining an area with Clone tool, switch the already applied retouching to Remove and then turn on the Generative AI checkbox. It presents the usual progress bar, but does not produce a generative result. (LRC on M3 Macbook Pro running Sonoma on HEIC panorama from an iphone)

Would love to see you allow us to use it to fill the empty/white areas at the edge of an image after appling Transform features such as upright, but it currently can only work within the original image area.

Hi, started using Generative remove today.  I had taken a series of images and found that the sensor on a camera, not often used had been fungussed!? It was a great day and was disappointed that all the images were wasted. However, I found that Generative Remove has cut the work down in this instance quite dramatically, and saved the day, but it still onerous. Luckily the areas affected are block colour but in the more detailed areas I found that I needed to use a much smaller cursor size, but it worked, after a fashion. 

Adjustable Feathering the cursor might help. I also had a glitch (hockey-stick glitch) every so often (pictures attached) which I could not explain - just went to undo and waited a few seconds.  In addition, would it be possible to save the actions of Generative Remove as a mask that could be used on the other imagesof the same batch? Thats all. Thanks

Using Generative Remove for spot removal is not recomended as it is much slower than using the standard heal tool.

 

Please refer to the FAQ provided by Adobe for guidance on whcih of the Remove tools is bested suited to particular tasks.

Great feature. I would love feathering, as well as the object rectangle selection for this tool. After a few times the Refresh option is missing.
I don't see any information in the documention/responses about what de-selecting the checkboxes "Generative AI" and "Object Aware" do. Is it correct that you must also uncheck the latter to remove that person/object/etc.? Maybe some people do not see that. Being aware of selecting everything etc., I had an issue with removing an intruding elbow from the border on a non-cropped image._MG_0041.jpg

Selecting a person's glasses with "Object Aware" off, I get the person without her glasses which is the purpose. However, the person eyes looks at the camera now, from an extreme angle and the eyes are weird (too big, ugly, angrilly) every time. There should be at least some variations with the eyes looking as the original.

No, the two options are independent. The Generative AI option says to use the new Adobe Firefly service to generate a replacement for the selection.   The Object Aware option controls how to make the initial selection -- when unchecked, it's exactly what you've brushed, but when checked, it uses the same algorithm as Object Mask to identify an "object" that becomes the selection to be replaced.

@ThierryH: "I had an issue with removing an intruding elbow from the border on a non-cropped image."

 

Generative Remove did a very good job of quickly removing the elbow from the JPEG you uploaded:

Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.02.19 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.02.27 PM.jpg

 

That indicates you were working with a raw to which Lens Corrections or Transform had been applied, or in less frequent cases, the Camera Raw engine had automatically cropped a border of 8 - 12 pixels around the edge. In all cases, Remove is (confusingly) looking at those hidden pixels. Temporarily disable Lens Corrections and Transform and then do the remove.  See here for more details:

https://www.lightroomqueen.com/generative-remove-replace/

 

If that doesn't help, upload the original raw to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar and post the sharing link here.

With your low-resolution JPEG, I got better results using Object Aware.  I looked at over 50 variations, and here are some of the better ones (hard to know if they'd be acceptable on the full-resolution raw):

Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.19.50 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.19.18 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.16.34 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.17.24 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.18.44 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.16.03 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.19.06 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.17.13 PM.jpg Screenshot 2024-06-18 at 3.15.40 PM.jpg

 

The Refresh button never disappeared for me, but maybe there's a difference when using raws.

Hate it! A simple spot removal that used to take a second now takes several minutes to process. Totally unacceptable.

Please put it back the way it was.
