How to add Content Credentials to an image in Photoshop

Adobe recently introduced generative AI capabilities to several of its leading apps, including Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro.

One of the biggest discussions around generative AI comes down to transparency. People want to be informed when a piece of art is generated using an AI engine and artists want credit for the work they create without these tools.

This is where Adobe’s new Content Credentials feature comes in. Content Credentials allows creators to attach information to their content, including the name of the artist, the program used to create the piece, any edits or processes used and assets included in the final image. It also marks images that have been generated using AI tools.
