Adobe's renowned vector graphic design tool, Illustrator, takes a quantum leap into the generative AI era with the introduction of the Firefly Vector Model, unveiled at the Adobe MAX conference. Touted as the pioneer in generative AI for vector graphics, this model can autonomously craft vector graphics from ground up, using insights garnered from Adobe Stock.
The groundbreaking beta feature allows designers to spawn complete vector scenes using a simple text prompt. The real magic? These scenes aren't just amalgamations of vectors. Illustrator proactively churns out individual objects, granting designers the liberty to fine-tune them akin to conventional Illustrator groups or layers.
Adobe's Generative AI and Sensei VP, Alexandru Costin, shared insights into the evolution of this capability. Drawing upon tens of millions of vector images from Adobe Stock, the team meticulously trained Firefly. The mission wasn't merely to craft vectors but to optimize the process, generating images using minimal points.
Illustrator's arsenal further expands with the addition of "Mockup." This feature breathes life into vector designs by superimposing them onto 3D scenes - be it logos on apparel or designs on product packages. "Mockup offers a tangible vision, allowing clients to visualize the end-product," Costin elaborated.
"Retype" also joins Illustrator's suite, morphing static image text into editable formats, complete with font matching capabilities. And the icing on the cake? Illustrator now graces the web, making vector designing more accessible than ever!
