This week, Adobe killed all generative AI design startups, including the likes of DALL.E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion, in one swift move with Firefly. Currently, in beta testing, Adobe Firefly allows users to access its generative AI-based editing models through a waitlist. The objective is to enable efficient and unrestricted expression of creative ideas by leveraging the power of generative AI.
Firefly addresses concerns surrounding copyright by training the models on Adobe Stock images, openly licensed content, and public domain material. Notably, Firefly incorporates metadata to indicate the extent to which the artwork is AI-generated, addressing the concerns of the creators.
Adobe plans to integrate Firefly across various applications, including Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Express, empowering users to harness generative AI capabilities. Nonetheless, the potential impact and reception of Firefly in an already crowded market remain the subject of ongoing discussion.
