Adobe was always well positioned to take on the generative AI arms race, with Adobe Creative Cloud. Boasting an entire suite of the worlds most mature and most popular creative professional software, its generative AI models are already integrated into well-known apps such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Premiere Pro. Adobe Firefly comprises several tools with new features and capabilities, including Generative Match, Generative Fill, and Generative Recolor. With the Adobe Firefly Image 2 Model now in Beta, how much better is it than version 1?

Adobe Firefly Image 2 Model – How good is it?

Using generative AI (Artificial Intelligence) as part of your creative workflow can certainly speed up the more monotonous tasks. The ability to produce graphics – now even editable vector graphics – from a simple text prompt is unprecedentedly fast. Especially because images you generate with Firefly are free for commercial use. However, it’s only worth using if the generated images are high-quality, even photorealistic if you need them to be. In addition, manual control is important to maintain your unique style and creativity.

Adobe Firefly has been great in that respect since release in March of this year.

What’s new? – Adobe Creative Cloud AI

The new Adobe Firefly Image 2 Model has several upgrades from the previous model.

Right now, it is “only available in the Firefly web app.” However, it features an updated “model architecture and metadata, training algorithm improvements, and better image generation capabilities — making it faster and easier to realize your creative vision.” These updates include:

  • “Firefly Image 2 has more knowledge about the world to recognize more landmarks and cultural symbols. Also, you can control the image generation with longer prompts.”
  • “It supports better people generation, particularly portraits with improved skin, hair, eyes, and diversity. Also improved hands and body structure.”
  • “It has better colors and improved dynamic range with rich generations without oversaturation.”
  • “The new model also has an Auto mode for Content type that automatically selects Photo or Art content type for you and predicts the right photo settings for your prompt to guarantee great results without tinkering.”
  • “It supports better photographic quality with high-frequency details like skin pores and foliage, great depth of field control and generation, 4 megapixels output in print workflows, and photo settings to control the generation’s depth of field and composition.”
