If you want to visit a place where natural hazards are everywhere and lunch costs $60, I recommend you go to Iceland. It’s a beautiful and brutal landscape that makes for incredible photos of natural wonders (and horrors). I picked up a bunch on my recent trip to the country. But he does Unfortunately, as I discovered, it is possible to make them terrifying in entirely new ways.
I turned Adobe’s new AI-powered Generative Fill tool on my Icelandic vacation photos with both “legitimate” photo editing tasks and a few ridiculous prompts that resulted in terrible fuel. Generative Fill is currently in beta and is based on Adobe’s Firefly image generator. It’s not brand new, but it’s on par with all your standard photo editing sliders does new. You use it by making a choice – a lasso, a magic wand, whatever you want – and then typing a text query. It can remove and add elements to your photo or enlarge the image.
After playing with it for just a few hours, it already looks like an impressive upgrade to Photoshop’s existing Content Aware Fill tool. Take a look at how each removed the people from my Skógafoss photo. It’s a very popular spot, so my photo naturally has a lot of people in front of the waterfall — this is the original.
No contest – Generative Fill image is better than Content Aware. And all I had to do was make an imprecise selection, type a few words, and wait a few seconds. Honestly, that’s scary in itself.
But that’s just the beginning – if you really want to go for it, you can go for it. And oh, the places you’ll go with Generative Fill. Let’s take a little trip from the beautiful but deadly waterfalls to the beautiful but deadly glacier. Here is the valley carved by the glacier it actually looked like itand this is what I got when I asked Generative Fill to make it even more frustrating by adding a storm.
Pretty convincing, right? But instead of a waterfall?
Wow, there goes Generative Refill difficult at the waterfall. I think it looks fake, but it’s believable. Now what if I want the ponies in the foreground instead?
Sweet Jesus, it’s not! Let’s go more casual…how about a lemonade stand in the foreground? Pretty innocent, huh?
Cool is the darkest lemonade stand in the world. I love this. What if we illuminated with something impossible to evoke horror? How about a rainbow in a unicorn sky?
Well, that’s an F for rainbows and a big “No” for everything else. How are you, Firefly? Get me back to safety and try to get people away This photo is of a beautiful but deadly black sand beach.
Well, I guess it’s good. The area where the rocks meet the water looks fake and stretched out, but honestly, the whole country looks too good to be true. And not least the phallic image this the photo was not created by artificial intelligence. Seriously, there it is. You never know what you will see next in Iceland.
