Adobe’s generative AI-powered Firefly tools are now commercially available to subscribers, offering a new way to create stunning AI art. Firefly, trained on Adobe’s own stock images, can be used as a standalone tool or integrated into Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. With Firefly, users can generate their own AI art and use it as a source for editing, such as replacing backgrounds or adding effects. However, there is a catch – Adobe will charge users for using Firefly through a credit system. Each image created with Firefly requires a certain amount of credits, which can be topped up each month.
Firefly’s Credit System: How Does It Work?
While Firefly is available for free for unlimited use until November 1st for generating Text Effects, other uses of the tool require credits. Adobe is currently charging 1 credit per image created with Firefly. The credit system varies depending on your Creative Cloud subscription. Free users of Creative Cloud, Firefly, and Adobe Express are limited to 25 monthly credits for Firefly. Those on a Creative Cloud plan for the entire suite receive 1,000 credits per month, while subscribers to single visual apps like Photoshop get 500 credits. Lightroom users receive 100 credits, and the Creative Cloud Photography plan offers 250 credits for those who signed up before November 1st. Additional credits can be purchased for $4.99 per month for an extra 100 credits.
What Happens if Your Credits Expire?
If your credits expire, you won’t lose access to Firefly, but there will be a drop in performance for Creative Cloud subscribers. Express users will be limited to generating two Firefly images per day until the next month begins. It’s important to note that credits do not roll over, so it’s recommended to use them within the given month.
