LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) kicked off Adobe Summit EMEA 2023 – the industry’s leading Digital Experience Conference – with a powerful, new generative AI offering that brings Adobe Firefly and Adobe Express to enterprises around the world. Firefly for Enterprise is designed to address the surging demand of digital content at scale and help enterprises streamline and accelerate content creation while optimizing costs. The new company-wide offering enables every employee across an organization, at any creative skill level, to use Firefly to generate beautiful, on-brand, ready-to-share content that can be seamlessly edited in Express or Creative Cloud.
Across nearly every business function today, the need to create compelling content for internal and external audiences has skyrocketed. For creatives, marketers, product managers, sales teams and many other roles to do their jobs successfully, individuals must keep pace with content required for communicating and collaborating with internal stakeholders, as well as for enterprise customer engagements and personalization initiatives. Express bridges workflows between creative professionals and marketers through integrations into Creative Cloud applications like Photoshop and Illustrator as well as Experience Manager, the world-class CMS solution.
Designed to be commercially safe, this new offering will bring generative AI image creation and editing capabilities to millions of enterprise users who will be able to modify images in Creative Cloud, Express and Experience Manager. Users can also create standout content with inspiration from Express’ beautiful, high-quality collection of templates, fonts, Stock images, videos and music. Express is an all-in-one content creation app that makes it fast, easy and fun to design and share standout social media posts, videos, images, PDFs, flyers, logos, presentations and more.
“Enterprise leaders expect content demands will increase by five-fold over the next two years, making it imperative for them to drive efficiencies internally,” said David Wadhwani, president, Digital Media Business at Adobe. “This new enterprise offering empowers users of any skill level to instantly turn ideas into content with Firefly, while tapping into the power of Express and Creative Cloud to quickly modify assets and deliver standout designs.”
As part of this new offering, users will be able to access Firefly through the standalone Firefly application, Adobe Express and Creative Cloud, and Adobe plans to enable businesses to be able to custom train Firefly with their own branded assets, embedding the power of Firefly into their own ecosystem and generating content in the brand’s unique style and brand language using APIs to increase automation. Firefly is designed to be safe for commercial use and enterprises also have the opportunity to obtain an IP indemnity from Adobe for content generated by certain Firefly-powered workflows allowing them to deploy it across their organization with confidence. Hundreds of brands including Dentsu, IBM and Mattel are already working with Adobe to explore how Firefly can help drive efficiencies, reduce costs and accelerate their content supply chains.
Firefly is the most differentiated generative AI solution available today and Firefly for enterprise is an offering that generates commercially viable, professional quality content at speed. Firefly’s first model is trained on Adobe Stock images, openly licensed content and other public domain content where copyright has expired. Adobe Stock’s hundreds of millions of professional-grade, licensed images are among the highest quality in the market, and help ensure Firefly won’t generate content based on other peoples’ or brands’ IP.
Since its launch in March, Firefly beta users have generated over 200 million images. Photoshop users have generated over 150 million images in just two weeks using the new Generative Fill feature powered by Firefly.
As generative AI becomes more prevalent in everyday life, consumers demand to know whether a piece of content was created by a human, AI-generated or AI-edited. Because Firefly automatically attaches a Content Credentials tag that indicates that generative AI was used, every image created using Firefly will have more transparency built in. Content Credentials are a free, open-source tool that serve as a digital “nutrition label” and can show information such as name, date and the tools used to create an image, as well as any edits made to that image. They remain associated with content wherever it is used, published or stored, enabling proper attribution and helping consumers make informed decisions about digital content. Content Credentials were designed by Adobe in partnership with the Content Authenticity Initiative and over 1,000 members.
Adobe Express for enterprise is available today. The new Adobe Firefly for enterprise offering will be available in the second half of 2023.
