With projects like DALL-E and others generating headlines for text-to-image creation, Adobe demonstrates that the business is finally investing some of its own resources in the cutting-edge technology.
Recently, there has been a buzz on social media about tools like DALL-E, which produce graphics depending on words you write. However, the industry leader in design, picture, and video software Adobe is now exploring this fascinating area of AI research as well.
The new features will become available as beta choices in Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and other programs that are a part of the business’s Creative Cloud package, as the company explained at its 2022 Max conference.
During the Sneaks(Opens in a new window) segment of the conference, Adobe unveiled 10 AI-related projects:
- Project Clever Composites automates color and shadow changes while streamlining the once arduous process of compositing photos into backdrops.
- Project Instant Add uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically map visuals to the selected element in the video, streamlining the traditionally difficult and time-consuming process of editing videos and adding VFX effects in post-production.
- Project Magnetic Type: Allows anybody to quickly fuse any form, even calligraphy that has been hand-drawn, to a piece of live digital text.
- During the design process, Project Vector Edge enables designers and their teams to see, modify, and collaborate on 2D designs within 3D settings.
- Project Motion Mix: Allows developers to quickly produce looping human animations of the highest quality, complete with accurate human motions, all from a still photograph.
- Project Blink: Makes editing movies as simple as editing text by assisting anybody in locating and rapidly extracting highlights from video information. You may join up for beta access to Project Blink now that it is available in beta.
- Using techniques from 2D painting, the Project Artistic Sceneries project transforms 3D scenes. Future VR and AR experiences require high-quality styled 3D material, which creators can produce fast.
- Images may be easily uncropped with Project All of Me. Project All of Me uses AI to create uncropped photo elements, remove unnecessary distractions, and even change the clothing of the photo subject.
- Project Beyond the Seen: Produces realistic and completely immersive 3D settings by quickly creating 360-degree panoramas from a single 2D photograph.
- Project Made in the Shade: Makes 3D image editing simple and understandable by allowing users to move a person or item inside of a picture and generate realistic shadows.
Project All of Me and programs that turn 2D photographs into 3D sceneries are the most exciting to me among them (though CyberLink(Opens in a new window) accomplished something similar years ago, back when 3D video was a hot issue), in my opinion.
All of Me produces body parts and clothing that aren’t there in the original image, even if it’s not nearly as totally constructing an image from text as DALL-E and other programs do.
The Backdrop Neural filter for Photoshop, which will let you tell the program to, for example, “Take me to Thailand” and then generate an appropriate background, was also mentioned by company executives at the Adobe Max conference. You can also tell Lightroom to change a picture from day to night using this feature.
In Photoshop, Generative AI will allow you to add new items to an image, make variants depending on your existing image, or even add a new part to your composite by just defining what you want, according to business press materials. Although Canva currently has an experimental AI text-to-image generating tool, it also states that Adobe Express will include AI generative features.
