Expand your image to fit a frame

 
Have you ever wished you could extend a photo to make it wider or taller to fit into a frame? If so, then you should try Generative Expand, another Firefly-powered generative AI feature in Photoshop for both desktop and web. You can find this feature in the Crop tool. It lets you expand and resize the canvas and then fills in the space with generative content that blends with your image. Follow the steps below to give it a try.
 
 

 

Photoshop on the desktop

Open an image in Photoshop

  • Open your chosen image by going to File > Open in the main menu and choosing an image.

  •  If you did not select Generative Expand from the Fill dropdown before expanding the crop, then you can click the Generative Expand button in the Contextual Task Bar that appears.

  • Photoshop creates a new layer and fills it with the newly generated content. Here is the final image after expanding the canvas and filling in the empty part with the generated image.

Photoshop automatically appends Content Credentials to images generated using Generative Fill and Generative Expand and exported as PNG, JPG, or "Save as", to let you and others know an image was created or edited in Photoshop using Firefly's generative AI technology.

 

Content created using Generative Expand and Generative Fill in Photoshop release versions 25.0 and above can be used for commercial use. (Content created using Photoshop beta is not authorized for commercial use)
