If you are a Photoshop user, you might be interested in a new feature that is currently available in the Photoshop (beta) desktop app: Generative Fill. This is a series of AI-powered capabilities that let you create, add, remove, or replace content in your images with simple text prompts. In this blog post, I will show you how Generative Fill works and what you can do with it.


Generative Fill is powered by Adobe Firefly, a family of generative AI models that are trained on Adobe Stock imagery, openly licensed work, and public domain content. This means that the content generated by Generative Fill is designed to be safe for commercial use and to match the style and quality of your original image. You can use Generative Fill to explore and experiment with different ideas, save time on complex edits, and refine your creations with Photoshop’s editing tools.

To use Generative Fill, you need to install the Photoshop (beta) app from the Creative Cloud app. The beta app is available in English only and requires an active Photoshop subscription. Once you have installed the app, you can open any image and select an area that you want to fill with new content. Then, you can type a text prompt that describes what you want to fill the area with. For example, if you want to add a dog to your image, you can type “a dog”. Generative Fill will then generate several options for you to choose from. You can also use more specific or creative prompts, such as “a dog wearing sunglasses” or “a dog flying a kite”.

Generative Fill can also help you extend your images by adding more content to the edges or corners of your image. For example, if you have a vertical shot of a building and you want to make it wider, you can select the left and right edges of your image and type “extend building”. Generative Fill will then generate more buildings that match the perspective and style of your original image.

Another use case for Generative Fill is to remove unwanted elements from your images. For example, if you have a photo of a landscape and you want to remove a person or an object from it, you can select the area that covers the person or object and type “remove”. Generative Fill will then replace the selected area with content that makes sense for the image, such as grass, trees, or sky.

One of the best things about Generative Fill is that it integrates seamlessly with Photoshop’s editing tools. Every time you use Generative Fill, it creates a new layer with the generated content. This means that you can adjust, edit, or remove any creation without affecting the original image. You can also use Photoshop’s tools to fine-tune the generated content, such as changing the color, brightness, contrast, or opacity.

Generative Fill is a powerful and fun way to create content in Photoshop with simple text prompts. It can help you generate realistic or surrealistic images in seconds, explore different concepts quickly, and save time on complex edits. You can also use it alongside Photoshop’s editing tools to refine your creations and achieve your desired results.

Generative Fill is still in beta and Adobe is looking for feedback from Photoshop users who want to try it out and help shape the future of AI-powered features in Photoshop. You can join the beta program by installing the Photoshop (beta) app from the Creative Cloud app and share your feedback on Adobe’s UserVoice forum.
