With initiatives like DALL-E and others making news for the development of text-to-image, Adobe proves that the company is at last devoting some of its own resources to the cutting-edge technology.(Adobe adds AI-generated images)
Social media has recently been abuzz with talk of applications like DALL-E, which generate images based on the text you enter. Adobe, a market leader in design, image, and video products, is now now investigating this exciting field of AI research.
The firm said at its 2022 Max conference that the new functionalities would be made available as beta options in Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and other applications that are a part of its Creative Cloud subscription.
Adobe presented 10 AI-related initiatives during the conference’s Sneaks(Opens in a new window) section:
- Project Clever Composites streamlines the once laborious process of compositing pictures into backgrounds by automating color and shadow adjustments.
- Project Instant Add streamlines the typically challenging and time-consuming process of editing films and adding VFX effects in post-production by automatically mapping images to the selected element in the video using artificial intelligence (AI).
- Project Magnetic Type: Enables anybody to instantly combine any shape, even hand-drawn calligraphy, to a piece of live digital text.
- Project Vector Edge gives designers and their teams the ability to work together on 2D designs while viewing them in 3D environments.
- Project Motion Mix: This tool enables creators to easily create the highest-quality looping human animations, complete with realistic human gestures, all from a still image.
- Project Blink: By helping anybody find and quickly extract highlights from video data, it makes editing movies as simple as editing text. Project Blink is now under beta testing; you may sign up for access to it.
- The Project Artistic Sceneries project alters 3D sceneries using methods from 2D painting. Future VR and AR experiences demand high-quality, quickly produced stylized 3D content.
- Project All of Me makes it simple to remove crop marks from images. Project All of Me employs artificial intelligence to produce uncropped photo elements, eliminate unneeded distractions, and even alter the subject’s attire.
- Project Beyond the Seen: Quickly generates 360-degree panoramas from a single 2D image to create realistic and fully immersive 3D environments.
- Project Made in the Shade: Enables users to move a person or object inside of a photo and create realistic shadows, making 3D image editing easy and clear.
Though CyberLink(Opens in a new window) achieved something similar years ago, back when 3D video was a major topic, in my perspective, Project All of Me and applications that convert 2D images into 3D landscapes are the most intriguing among them.
Even if All of Me doesn’t generate an image from text to the same extent that DALL-E and other programs do, it nevertheless creates body parts and clothes that aren’t there in the original image.
Executives from the firm also discussed the Backdrop Neural filter for Photoshop at the Adobe Max conference, which allows you to instruct the software to, for instance, “Take me to Thailand” and have it build the proper background. Using this tool, you may also instruct Lightroom to convert a photo from day to night.(Adobe adds AI-generated images)
According to business press materials, Generative AI will enable you to add new elements to an image in Photoshop, create variations based on your current image, or even add a new section to your composite by just specifying what you want. Adobe Express will have AI generative features, even though Canva now offers an experimental AI text-to-image generation capability.
