Adobe just released a new Beta update adding an amazingly powerful tool to Photoshop called Generative Fill – and I stayed up way too late playing with it. I was actually shocked at the quality of the Firefly AI, but also the speed and ease of use. You just make a quick rough selection, type words, and in no time you have 3 options to pick from. Want more? Smack the button again, and now you have 6 options. You can even use the Generative Fill tool with other powerful selection tools. Rainy day? No problem. Click Select Sky, Generative Fill, type “blue sky with fluffy white clouds” – done.
I admit how excited I am about this new feature, and also am astonished at how well Firefly does, but I wanted to see how I could use this new tech along with my MidJourney obsession. Nothing can compare to MidJourney’s models, but they also don’t currently have inpainting or outpainting features. We are artists, so why not utilize multiple tools?
I created an illustrative treehouse scene in MidJourney V5.1 (using my new fun “discombobulate” prompt) then brought the image into Photoshop Beta to extend the canvas, adding more forest. I then got carried away and added the moon, a white wolf, mushrooms, then extended the canvas downward and added a red pond with a bridge. I could do this all day. Omg it’s fun… If you have Adobe Creative Cloud, I highly suggest you install the Beta Photoshop (a separate program) and bring your midjourney images in for some more flexibility.
