Installing Photoshop with AI
First, launch the Creative Cloud app and check for any updates. If an update is needed for the Creative Cloud app, complete it first.
On the main page, you will likely see "Magically transform images with AI." Click on it.
Next, you will see "Photoshop (Beta)." Click "Install." This process may take a while, depending on your internet connection speed.
Generative AI Art with Photoshop
Once the installation is complete, a separate Photoshop (Beta) app will be available on your computer. Let’s start it up and see what it can do.
Drag an image into the workspace and use the Lasso Tool to select an area, as shown below.
Click "Generative Fill," type in a description (such as a prompt), and hit "Generate." If you don’t see this option for some reason, you can also find it by navigating to "Windows" > "Contextual Text Bar."
Given the description or prompt of "big brown bear sitting down," here’s what we can create.
The "Generative Fill" feature also functions without entering a description. Now, imagine you have an image with empty sides on both the left and right.
Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool.
Select the left area, as shown, and then click "Generative Fill" > "Generate" without providing a description.
Photoshop will analyze the image and fill in the left side accordingly. Isn’t that cool?
We are merely scratching the surface here in terms of what the latest AI-powered Photoshop can do. Now, go have fun with it!
