Commitment to Responsible Innovation

Adobe is committed to developing AI in accordance with the company’s AI Ethics principles of accountability, responsibility, and transparency. In a recent Adobe study, 76% of U.S. consumers emphasized the importance of knowing if online content is AI-generated. To provide transparency around the use of AI within Adobe’s applications, Firefly-powered features in Photoshop will automatically attach Content Credentials to the content. Like a nutrition label for digital content, Content Credentials are tamper-evident metadata that can provide more information about the content, including whether AI was used in the creation or editing process.

Content Credentials are built on the C2PA open standard and supported by the Adobe-led Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), which was founded in 2019 to increase trust in the digital ecosystem. Today, the CAI has grown into a global coalition of over 2,500 members across tech, policy, media companies, creative professionals, researchers and more, all working together to add transparency to digital content.
