Adobe turned the imaging world upside down with its release earlier this week of an incredible new AI-powered feature called “Generative Fill,” which lets you simply type what you want it to add to your photo (or create from scratch), and it not only does it, it does a pretty fantastic job. So now, if you can type a few words, you can create Photoshop magic.
When you add something to your image, it matches the lighting, applies the proper perspective, adds the appropriate shadows, and scales it appropriately. In most cases, even on the first try, the results are amazing. If you don’t like one of the three initial results, you can just hit “Generate,” and it gives you three more to choose from. It’s crazy! I knew something like this would be here one day, but I never thought it would be here this soon. I thought this was five to 10 years away, but it’s here now, and it’s fairly terrifying for many of us (like me).
