Powered by OpenAI in the background, Bardeen AI's Chrome extension allows you to effortlessly initiate automations.

Use Case: Unleashing Adobe Firefly's Generative Fill for Creative Edits

Let’s consider the following nice photo by Pietro De Grandi on Unsplash.

1. Add Clouds ☁️

First on the agenda: sprucing up the sky with some fluffy clouds. Highlight the sky area where you'd like to see clouds drift in, and voila! You're presented with a few AI-generated options to choose from. Pick the one that captures your vision, or simply start over for a fresh look. The result? Absolutely stunning!

2. Remove Boats ⛵

Let's declutter the seascape by removing extra boats from the photo. Highlight the boats you'd like to sail away into oblivion, and just like that, they're gone! You'll get a few AI-crafted images to choose from—select the one that aligns with your artistic vision, or hit the restart button for a new set of options. The end result is a more serene, focused seascape.

Adobe Firefly for generative fill combines Photoshop's meticulous precision with generative AI's quick imagination, but be mindful of the watermark if you're considering commercial use.
