The Galaxy S24 series, while bringing little physical change, packs a lot of AI narrative. One of the biggest Galaxy S24 features is the AI Generative Edit, which allows you to completely alter photos in mere seconds using machine learning.
What is Generative Edit?
Generative Edit is essentially Samsung’s version of Magic Editor, which was introduced by Google on its Pixel devices last year. The tool incorporates Samsung’s AI model into photo editing, allowing you to find and erase objects in any image or even move them around. It sounds pretty basic, but a lot of the heavy lifting can go unnoticed.
In photo editing apps, any object can be carefully selected with a lasso tool or something similar. It can then be moved around on the image, resized, and placed in the spot of your choosing. That’s the easy part. The hard part is filling in that blank space that the cut portion of the image left behind.
Generative Edit is very good at replacing pieces of the image that you take away, pulling in context clues from the image to generate completely new portions of the picture. For instance, if you had a picture of a person standing in front of a tree, Generative Edit would allow you to select that person’s body and move it to another section of the picture. That missing portion of the tree would then need to be regenerated, leaves and all.
That’s where Generative Edit comes in.
Is Samsung’s AI editing feature any good?
In our testing on the Samsung Galaxy S24+ and S24 Ultra, we’ve had some impressive results. Considering Magic Editor and Generative Edit are relatively new features, there is some slack to be given…
