AI can let you lie with photos. But you don't want a photo untouched by digital processing.
The realism, depth and detail of this technology won me over instantly. I just wish everybody else had the software and hardware to appreciate it, too.
I put the Adobe's Firefly image creator to the test. It's not perfect, but it's a bubbling fountain of creative output. Also new: generative AI in Illustrator and Adobe Express.
It replaces the free version of Photoshop for the web, which unfortunately seems to have been discontinued.
Firefly, which I've been testing, has a monthly usage cap that's meant to be liberal. But oh, by the way, Adobe is raising all its subscription prices.
OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, was also among the companies that met with President Biden.
Adobe, like Microsoft and Google, sees AI today best used to help humans, not replace them.
Get access to Adobe's full suite of apps and 100GB of cloud storage while saving more than $200 off the usual price.
Also coming: better presets for quick edits. The idea is to make Lightroom easier for new users to improve their photos.
The company's all-purpose creation app gets new video editing abilities alongside AI-powered imagery and fonts. The basic version of the app is free.
Adobe's Firefly AI feature brings new fun and fakery to photos. It's a profound change for image editing, though far from perfect.
Exclusive: Google's new creative AR tools promise real-world games, concerts and shopping with Maps-like features add. But Maps itself is transforming, too.
