AI is showing up in your most common design applications, including Adobe Photoshop. With the AI built into Photoshop, you can save time by using the Object Selection Tool to mask objects and Content-Aware Fill (instead of the clone tool) to extend your background. You can even quickly remove artifacts from old photos with the Photo Restoration Neural Filter. Give these tools a try!


Know your terms! Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad term that refers to computers performing tasks associated with intelligent human beings. Machine learning is a subset of AI that uses data and patterns to improve the experience. Deep learning is a subset of machine learning that tries to emulate the way humans learn through experience.

mental memo from Aline

There’s been a lot of talk and curiosity around artificial intelligence (AI) lately, especially surrounding ChatGPT and DALL-E2. As a result, we decided to take a look to see what the new developments may mean for our clients and our team at Astriata. We share our insights in this issue of LightBox—and will continue to share in February, so keep an eye out!

Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy this issue. We also hope you stay well — and when it comes to usability, design, and technology, stay intentional.
