Adobe to add AI tools

On the second day of its MAX conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the software giant Adobe revealed as many as eleven new AI-powered 'prototype' tools and capabilities. The creator of Photoshop showed off several cutting-edge innovations, including a tool that, for the first time, applies Firefly generative AI to video, putting it directly in the middle of the current AI arms race.

The preview of Project Stardust was the largest announcement made during "Sneaks," an occasion where Adobe showcases experimental features created by its engineers and research experts. The program makes editing a lot easier by utilizing artificial intelligence to identify important things in a shot.

What are the different projects Adobe has been working on?

During the demonstration, Adobe showed how users can identify unwanted objects in a photo and move or delete them without a long rendering. Adobe also claimed to have removed the object's shadow  and replaced the missing pixels with realistic AI rendering. Some might compare Adobe's Project Stardust to Google's Magic Editor on Android, but both tools aim to make photo editing easier.

Project Fast Fill

But the most impressive Sneaks demo was Project Fast Fill, a tool that offers the same generative fill technique introduced in Photoshop for video editing. It allows users to  easily remove objects or change the background of a video while working with a still image using a simple text prompt. Adobe says it works even for very complex scenes in varying lighting conditions.

Project See Through

Another experimental but powerful AI tool Adobe showed off was Project See Through, and as the name suggests, it removes annoying things like reflections on glass, a common problem we  face every day. Adobe also previewed Project Draw and Delight. The tool can turn a doodle or sketch into a polished and sophisticated vector drawing with a text prompt.

Project Dub Dub

Then there was Project Dub Dub Dub, which can automatically translate an audio recording or video  into an unlimited number of supported languages ​​while preserving the voice of the original speaker. Project Primrose also rose to limelight during  Sneaks. It is essentially an interactive dress that showcases the use  of "flexible textile screens" and allows the wearer to display patterns and images on their body as a programmable screen.

Adobe Max Project Primrose

Adobe Max Project Primrose is a dress that can be customized with different patterns and animations. In  a sense, Adobe's glimpse of extensive and experimental AI tools like Project Stardust shows the speed at which generative AI is changing creative work.

This year's MAX conference is a three-day gathering that brings people from the creative industries under one roof, and the theme is how creative artificial intelligence can be useful to build ideas instead of replacing professional designers.

The company introduced several new AI models, including the next-generation Firefly Image 2 model, which produces higher quality images than the original Firefly model. Additionally, Adobe announced that it is adding new artificial intelligence features to Adobe Creative Cloud applications and Adobe Express.
