In recent years, AI technology has become really popular, and now it’s even in our smartphones. The new Galaxy S24 series from Samsung have Galaxy AI, a bunch of smart tools that use AI to help you out, including features for editing your photos. This post will show you how to use generative edit on Samsung Galaxy S24 series running One UI 6.0 based on Android 14.
What is Generative Edit?
Generative Edit is essentially Samsung’s take on Magic Editor, which Google introduced on its Pixel devices last year. This tool harnesses Samsung’s AI model to enhance photo editing, enabling you to locate and remove objects from any image, or even rearrange them. While it may seem straightforward, a significant amount of complex processing happens behind the scenes.
In typical photo editing applications, you can meticulously select any object using a lasso tool or a similar feature. Once selected, you can freely move, resize, and position the object anywhere within the image. That’s the simple part. The real challenge lies in seamlessly filling the void left behind by the removed portion of the image.
Generative Edit is perfect at filling in the gaps when you remove something from a picture. It looks at the rest of the picture and uses clues to create new parts that fit in. For example, if you move a person from one part of the picture to another, Generative Edit can recreate the missing part of the background, like the tree, including all the leaves.
How to Enable Generative Edit on Galaxy S24 Models
Before using this AI feature, make sure the “Generative edit” feature is enabled on your phone. Similar to other features and settings you’ve encountered in this guide, Generative Edit isn’t activated automatically. You’ll have to take a moment to enable it in your settings.
Here are the steps to enable it:
- Go to the Settings app.
- Tap Advanced features.
- Select Advanced intelligence.
- Select Photo Editor and then enable it.
How to Use AI Generative Edit on Samsung Galaxy S24 Models
1. Open the Gallery app on your Galaxy S24 phone.
2. Locate any image that you want to edit.
3. Tap on the pencil icon at the bottom of the screen to edit.
4. Tap on the AI Generative Edit button on the left.
5. Tap or draw a circle around any object. For more precision, use the S Pen. After you’ve selected it, press and hold your finger on it for a while. Then, you can move it to a different spot and make it bigger or smaller using the little tabs on the edges. If you want to get rid of it, just tap the small eraser icon. For the purpose of this, we’ll erase it.
6. Select Generate.
7. The AI will do its magic. Once you’re happy with the edits, hit Done and Save as copy.
Unlike Edit Suggestions, Generative Edit relies on the internet, so you’ll need to be connected to the internet for it to work. It also takes a bit longer to finish processing your edits, especially if you’re making a bunch of them, so don’t be surprised if it takes a few seconds for your changes to show up.
That’s all. This is how you can enable and the generative edit feature on Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra.
