How To Use Adobe Firefly Text Effects Feature?

Adobe Firefly can apply really cool effects to the text you give it, just give it the prompts. 

Have you ever wondered if you can create a cool logo by just typing in prompts? Well, Adobe Firefly can do that in an instant.

Usually, AI image generative tools struggle with words, and tools like Midjourney and Dall-E 2 cannot be used for creating a logo as the words seem scrambled, and there’s no option to enter the words specifically. Adobe Firefly has a mode called Text Effects, where you can apply AI-generated effects to the text you give. 

Text Effects is not really an AI logo creator but rather a cool way to apply effects to texts you give with prompts. You can give any prompt, and the tool will create a text block with that effect applied. Take a look at these sample outputs from Firefly Text Effects:
