First impressions of Adobe's ethical image AI. I've had a chance to play with the beta version of Adobe Firefly.
This is their new, Generative Image AI. The big claim of Firefly is that all the images used in the system come from Adobe Stock rather than any other sources. This arguably makes Firefly an ethical AI image generator. Because of the nature of videos about Image AI I do spend a few minutes discussing the current issues, before I jump into using Firefly. And that's partially because there's not much i need to show you. I found Firefly simple to use, easy to get results and quite fun. There is no learning curve and no hidden tricks.
