However, these AI tools are facing legal issues as they have used materials from free stock photo providers to train their AI algorithms. Getty Images, has raised copyright issues against Stability AI claiming that the tool has used their stock photos (without permission) to train its machine learning program.

Adobe Inc has a clear answer to this concerning issue that might ensue for Adobe Firefly users. Adobe has trained Adobe Firefly’s AI with the photos belonging to Adobe Stock and copyright-free or copyright-expired images available for public use.

Adobe Firefly Pricing / Cost

Adobe Firefly’s price is one of the most awaited questions to be answered by Adobe Inc. The tech giant has clearly indicated its future ideas to shape up different models of Adobe Firefly, allowing creators to add uniqueness and achieve specific outcomes. In other words, you can train different Adobe Firefly models to generate specific styles based on your brand’s color codes and design philosophy.

Adobe Firefly’s price during the initial rollout would be that of a licensed one-time buy product. When the idea of creating different models of the AI tool comes to life, then we can expect different pricing plans for Adobe Firefly. However, factors like integration will add to the total cost of ownership of Adobe Firefly.
