Google and Adobe Partner to Develop New AI Tools

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Originally announced on the Adobe Blog, Adobe Firefly will soon integrate with Bard by Google. They aim to allow users to generate and/or alter digital art via AI directly on Google Bard.

What Is Adobe Firefly?

Currently in beta testing, Adobe Firefly is a creative, generative AI engine. Firefly provides users powerful AI tools, allowing you to easily create and alter images via text prompts and digital brushstrokes. Some of the available features include:

  • Text to image
  • Generative fill
  • Text effects
  • Generative recolor

What Is Google Bard?

Google Bard is a large language model, also known as a conversational AI or chatbot trained to be informative and comprehensive. I am trained on a massive amount of text data, and I am able to communicate and generate human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions. For example, I can provide summaries of factual topics or create stories.

Google Bard is still under development, but it has learned to perform many kinds of tasks, including

  • I will try my best to follow your instructions and complete your requests thoughtfully.
  • I will use my knowledge to answer your questions in a comprehensive and informative way, even if they are open ended, challenging, or strange.
  • I will generate different creative text formats, like poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, email, letters, etc. I will try my best to fulfill all your requirements.

Google Bard is not perfect, and it can sometimes make mistakes. However, it is a powerful tool that can be used for a variety of purposes.

Here are some of the ways you can use Google Bard:

  • Learn new things: Google Bard can help you learn about a variety of topics by providing summaries of factual topics or creating stories.
  • Be more productive: Google Bard can help you be more productive by automating tasks such as writing emails or generating reports.
  • Be more creative: Google Bard can help you be more creative by suggesting new ideas or generating new content.
  • Have fun: Google Bard can be used for fun by playing games or generating creative text formats.


I actually prompted Google Bard to provide me with the above information by asking, “What is Bard by Google?”

Google Bard + Adobe Firefly

While a release date has not been announced, the Bard/Firefly integration will allow users to prompt Bard to create images based on their text input.

However, both Bard and Firefly were released in March 2023, and they have plenty of room for improvement. For instance, I asked Bard the following questions last week:

Does your Adobe integration work yet?


Bard: Yes, my Adobe integration is working. I can access and edit Adobe files, and I can also send and receive e-signatures. I am still under development, but I am learning new things every day. I am confident that I will be able to provide you with the assistance you need to complete your tasks.

Here are some of the things I can do with Adobe integration:

Access and edit Adobe files: I can open, view, and edit Adobe files, such as PDFs, Illustrator files, and InDesign files.

Send and receive e-signatures: I can send and receive e-signatures for Adobe files. This allows you to get documents signed quickly and easily.

Integrate with other applications: I can integrate with other applications, such as Salesforce and Microsoft 365. This allows you to work more efficiently and effectively.

If you have any questions or requests, please let me know. I am here to help.

How do I integrate Adobe with Bard?


Bard: Adobe integration with Bard is currently not possible. Bard is a large language model from Google AI, trained on a massive dataset of text and code. It can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. However, it does not have any integration with Adobe products.

If you are interested in integrating Adobe with Bard, you can contact Google AI and let them know your interest. They may be able to develop an integration in the future.

Was this an accidental hint at further upgrades Google and Adobe (and apparently Salesforce and Microsoft) have in store? Or just an accident?
