I found PiXimpefect’s clever use of Quick Mask + GenFill interesting. It’s basically “Select Subject -> Quick Mask -> paint over hair edges -> generate,” filling in areas where the original selection/removal process left something to be desired.
It’s here (in your beta copy of Photoshop, same as Generative Fill), and it works pretty much exactly as I think you’d expect: drag out crop handles, then optionally specify what you want placed into the expanded region.
Today, we’re excited to announce that Firefly-powered features in Photoshop (beta) will now support text prompts in 100+ languages — enabling users around the world to bring their creative vision to life with text prompts in the language they prefer.
Draw a rough outline with the brush tool and use different colors for all parts.
Go to Quick Mask Mode (Q).
Go to Edit > Fill and choose a 70% grey fill. The lower this percentage, the more the end result will resemble your original sketch (i.e.: increasingly cartoon-like).
Exit Quick Mask Mode (Q). You now have a 70% opaque selection.
Click Generative Fill and type your prompt. Something like: summer grassland landscape with tree (first example) or river landscape with mountains (second example). You can also keep it really simple, just play with it!
On a chilly morning two years ago, I trekked out to the sand dunes in Death Valley to help (or at least observe) Russell on a dawn photoshoot with some amazing performers and costumes. Here he takes the imagery farther using Generative Fill in Photoshop:
On an adjacent morning, we made our way to Zabriskie Point for another shoot. Here he shows how to remove wrinkles and enhance fabric using the new tech:
And lastly—no anecdote here—he shows some cool non-photographic applications of artwork extension:
I owe a lot of my career to Adobe’s O.G. creative director—one of the four names on the Photoshop 1.0 splash screen—and seeing his starry-eyed exuberance around generative imaging has been one of my absolute favorite things over the past year. Now that Generative Fill has landed in Photoshop, Russell’s doing Russell things, sharing a bunch of great new tutorials. I’ll start by sharing two:
Check out his foundational Introduction to Generative Fill:
And then peep some tips specifically on getting desired shapes using selections:
There’s a roughly zero percent chance that you both 1) still find this blog & 2) haven’t already seen all the Generative Fill coverage from our launch yesterday 🎉. I’ll have a lot more to say about that in the future, but for now, you can check out the module right now and get a quick tour here:
And here’s a rad little workflow optimization I’m proud we were able to sneak in:
