Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows how much I love minimalism. It’s a style that I wish so much that I could apply to myself and my environment, but I generally struggle with it, so maybe that’s why I’m so attracted to creating minimalist art and photos in MidJourney.
Today’s One Thing: Exploring the Intersection of Minimalism and Generative AI in Photoshop
As someone who loves minimalism but often finds it elusive in daily life, I’ve discovered immense satisfaction in applying this aesthetic through the lens of generative AI in MidJourney. Today, we’re diving into this blend of style and technology, and I’ll share how it’s rekindled my relationship with Photoshop.
This week, Adobe announced generative-ai fill inside of Photoshop, an extension of their Firefly product available online via the web. This announcement took me down a wonderful rabbit hole of generative-ai experimentation inside Photoshop, which I had used less since MidJourney 5 dropped. I have been living in the app. That’s for another post, though. I did share a quick test sample on LinkedIn. 👇 Check it out here on my bio.
I saw a Twitter thread about using the term Gucci as part of your prompts and started playing with the idea. I have had so much fun with some of the images I’m getting. They don’t have the detail in the faces I’m used to getting with MidJourney, but their concepts are super cool.
When the detail is right in the faces though, these are really special and I love the style.
Even though the details are not there yet, images like these could be used for ideation and/or storyboarding for a campaign.
