Generative AI platform Firefly is out of beta and into Adobe Express and Creative Clouds apps such as Photoshop and Illustrator. The news also comes as Adobe reveals its Firefly AI web app is also now commercially available and promises 'nutritional labels' for image creation. So what does it all mean for digital artists?

The big features coming to Creative Cloud apps include Generative Fill and Generative Expand in Photoshop, Generative Recolor in Illustrator, and Text to Image and Text effects in Adobe Express. The Photoshop AI tools have been incredibly popular in beta and now everyone can try them, and tellingly these features enhance workflows rather than replace them. These new tools will be rolled out to everyone over the next week.
