The magic of Generative Fill


Have you ever wished you could remove distractions from your photos quickly, try a new background, widen the photo to fit into a frame, or add something just for fun?
It’s really easy using Generative Fill, and I'm warning you, it can be quite addicting! Generative Fill is a magical new suite of AI-powered capabilities powered by Adobe Firefly that enable you to add, extend, or remove content from your images non-destructively, using simple text prompts to achieve results that will absolutely amaze you. It will blow your mind how Photoshop can match the colors, perspective, and shadows. You can try Generative Fill in the Photoshop (Beta) app. To install the Photoshop (Beta) app on your desktop, visit the Beta apps tab of your Creative Cloud desktop app and select Install next to Photoshop (Beta). 

 

 

 

Generate a new background

  • Choose Select > Subject
  • Choose Select > Inverse
  • Click on the Generative Fill button
  • Type a short description of the scene you want Photoshop to generate, or leave it blank for a surprise
  • Click Generate

  • When the text prompt box appears, use nouns, adjectives, and adverbs to describe what you want to see generated within your selection.  If you are feeling adventurous, leave it blank and see what Photoshop comes up with based on what is sees in the rest of the image.

  • Click Generate. Photoshop will create a new layer with the generated content. Scroll through several generated options by clicking on < and >. If you want to try again, type a new prompt and click Generate.

Helpful Tips

  • Use simple language
    Try using 3-8 words to describe what you want to see.
    Include a subject with descriptive language.
    Avoid commands like “add” or “remove”.
    Good prompt: A red barn in a field of yellow flowers.
  • Use layers and edit non-destructively
    When you click Generate, the result appears on a new Generative Layer.

    Try generating several images and combining them into a composition.

  • Select part of the original image when extending
    Make sure you select part of the image along with the empty part of the canvas. This will give a better result that will blend in with the rest of your image.


  • Get inspired and inspire others: Check out the Adobe Firefly Gallery to see what others have created with Adobe Firefly and Generative Fill. Click on an image to see the prompt that was used.
