How to use Photoshop Generative Fill: Use AI on your images
And how would anyone doing photography benefit from that. PerL oh sure, we had abstract movements, cubists, impressionists, blah, blah, but don’t kid yourself that “realistic” painting ever died out! It’s more alive now than ever, and at all levels from amateur art clubs through commercial art-for-sale, to Royal Portraits and the like. Back in 1840, a French artist called Delaroche, on seeing his first primitive photograph, said the now famous words, “From today, painting is dead”. Thanks Falxon, for being the voice of the people and calling us all out on our misplaced concerns and anxieties. I hope you take the time to furnish our world leaders with this wisdom, because they are also currently wasting everyone’s time meeting to bleat on about the dangers of AI.
Avoid making a tight selection and always overlap some areas around the selection in your image to generate a better image result and enable seamless blending. Follow these steps to use Generative Fill to add generative content. Generative Expand is the simplest way to add generative content to an empty canvas, but Generative Fill can also be used as an alternative.
Before and After Examples Using Photoshop AI
Deleting unused Generative Layers and variations makes a big difference, or saving the result as a TIFF with the layers discarded. Photoshop’s approach debuts a new Contextual Task Bar with commands such as Select Subject or Remove Background. When you make a selection using any of the selection tools, such as the Lasso tool, one option in the bar is a Generative Fill button.
We didn’t wind up buying this place, but it gives us enough elements to test out Generative Fill. We’ll use AI to build up this image element by element. And just like that, Photoshop adds an approaching storm on the left side of the image, while the right side remains unchanged. Then drag out a selection outline around the canvas on the left of the image.
How to Add an Object
Users can now swiftly add, remove, or expand elements within photos while maintaining the image’s overall aesthetic. This will help graphic designers like me, who must make do with less-than-perfect customer-supplied images. I’ve often had to remove stray objects in photos because the customer didn’t notice them, or extend a complex background manually because they cropped into the subject too tightly. Select the empty areas, and overlap the edges of the existing image as reference.

In addition to altering existing images, Photoshop’s AI generative fill can create images too. However, we should note that Photoshop struggles with images larger than 1024 pixels, often resulting in lower-quality images. So, with that Yakov Livshits in mind, when creating new images, you’ll either need to create a canvas no larger than 1024 pixels (w x h) or generate your composite image in sections. You’ll notice that the generative fill taskbar reveals a text prompt input box.
This includes AI text-to-image and Text Effects features. It also offers various generative features for other applications, including Adobe Illustrator’s Generative Recolor. Adobe says they’ll be coming to Photoshop and other apps as they’re ready.
In this article, I’ll tell you everything you need to know to get the tool up and running, plus I’ll give you some examples and tips so you can make the most out of the Generative Fill feature. Enable the crop tool and use the handles to expand the canvas size. Utilize any selection tool available in Photoshop to choose the specific part of your image you want to work with.
Keep in mind that it can take multiple prompt requests and revisions to get what you want. And people with true fashion sense are likely to quibble with Photoshop’s choices. We can perhaps chalk this up to the feature being pre-release, although more likely it reveals that despite the amount of machine learning, the software is Yakov Livshits still just making guesses. Below are some before and after images to demonstrate what Photoshop’s Generative Fill tool is capable of. Once clicked AI will create the extra background to replicate the existing background. Extend the bounding borders of the canvas by dragging Crop tool into the empty workspace around your image.
With your account made, you can access Adobe applications via the Creative Cloud download app. You can download the regular version of Photoshop, but for Generative Fill you’ll need the beta. Click on ‘Beta apps’ on the left-hand side, then find Photoshop (beta) and click ‘Install’.
