Adobe is once again revolutionizing the world of creative design with an update to its FireFly AI image generator. The company recently announced that its generative AI model now supports text prompts in over 100 languages, including eight regional languages such as Gujarati, Hindi, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu. This expanded language support empowers users to generate stunning images and captivating text effects using their native languages within the standalone FireFly web service. In addition, Adobe has localized the service in 20 languages, with versions available in French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
The inclusion of more languages in the FireFly AI model brings tremendous value to users worldwide. Adobe reports that users have already generated over one billion assets using FireFly on the website and in Photoshop, making it one of Adobe’s most successful beta releases to date. Since its launch in March, FireFly has been integrated into popular Adobe applications like Photoshop, Express, and Illustrator. Similar to other AI image generators, FireFly excels at seamlessly filling spots or replacing elements within images using text prompts. Moreover, it can generate full-blown images based on user input and the training data in its gallery.
Ely Greenfield, CTO of Digital Media at Adobe, emphasizes the significance of the expanded language support, stating, “Today’s announcement is about making FireFly accessible to more people in their preferred languages, so they can continue to leverage our unique model to bring their imagination to life and create the highest quality assets that are safe for commercial use.”
This recent update follows Adobe’s expansion of FireFly for Enterprise, enabling companies to design “commercially safe” images. The enterprise model allows businesses to custom-train FireFly using their branded assets, enabling content generation in their unique style and language. While FireFly’s generative AI capabilities are currently limited to image editing platforms like Photoshop, Express, and Illustrator, Adobe has yet to integrate it into its video editing platforms such as Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, After Effects, and others.
Adobe is not the only company expanding language support for its AI models. Google has also taken strides in this direction with its generative AI model, Bard. Just this week, Bard received support for Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, and Urdu. Bard can now understand image inputs, allowing users to upload a photo and ask Bard to analyze it for easy captions or identify elements within the image. Furthermore, users can request Bard to generate simple recipes if the photo depicts a grocery list or a page from a cookbook. Google Bard is continuously adding new features, including the ability to modify replies and pin conversations.
The advancements in language support for AI models like FireFly and Bard open up exciting possibilities for users worldwide, facilitating more inclusive and creative experiences. As these AI models continue to evolve and expand their capabilities, we can anticipate even more groundbreaking features that push the boundaries of creativity and automation.
