In a groundbreaking move, Adobe's Firefly AI, the genius behind Photoshop's generative fill, is now a native app for Apple Vision Pro. This integration takes creativity to new heights, enabling users to effortlessly generate AI-created images and place them in real-world spaces using the headset's visionOS system.
The Firefly visionOS app, purpose-built for Apple's VR headset, provides a familiar interface for users, allowing them to input a text description and generate four different images. These images can then be seamlessly placed around the user's environment, akin to virtual posters or prints. The Firefly AI model ensures commercial safety and adds a content credential "nutrition label" to AI-generated images.
Adobe teases upcoming features for the visionOS Firefly experience, including the ability to generate wrap-around panoramas and 360-degree environments. Additionally, users can enjoy limited editing tools and filters to refine their AI creations.
In parallel, the native Adobe Lightroom photo editing app for Apple Vision Pro offers a clean and simplified interface, making it easier to navigate with hand gestures. While it may not surpass the desktop or iPad versions in terms of functionality, the immersive experience it provides in the VR realm adds a new dimension to photo editing.
Apple's Vision Pro, with its historical focus on creatives and Adobe's seamless integration with Apple Silicon, presents an enticing option for VR enthusiasts and creatives, despite the investment-worthy $3,500 price tag. The collaboration between Adobe and Apple opens doors to a new era of creativity, bridging the gap between virtual and real-world artistic expression.
