Generative AI in Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop 2024 has generative AI features including: Generative Fill, Generative Expand, and the new Remove Tool. This article covers how to hide these features, how to ensure you can prove they were not used, and how to prevent Adobe from using your data to train their systems.


The most important thing to know about these generative AI tools is that if you don’t intentionally use them they will not be invoked or used on your image in any way.
