If you’ve ever encountered a message saying that something has violated user guidelines while using Photoshop’s AI-powered Generative Fill, you know how frustrating it can be.
The worst part is, you have no clue what exactly the violation is or how it happened. Thankfully, Unmesh at PiXimperfect has a simple solution to bypass this annoyance.
To be honest, I didn’t give much thought to this error when it appeared a couple of times. I used to put in actual prompts, but it turns out there’s another way to go about it.
It seems that the AI can still get confused with certain subjects, triggering unnecessary warning messages to play it safe. This can be quite bothersome if you frequently use the generative fill feature.
However, Unmesh has discovered a workaround that doesn’t require you to enter specific prompts. Well, sort of, but not exactly.
According to Unmesh, all you need to do is place a single dot in the description box to eliminate the warning and allow Photoshop to generate the scene. Yes, you read that right – just a dot.
Nothing more. Of course, you can still enter descriptions, but the crucial point is to avoid leaving it empty. Simply enter the dot.
Once you do this, the warning message disappears, and you can continue using generative fill as usual.
Now, let me emphasize that this might not work for all valid warnings. There are cases where certain actions clearly violate the guidelines.
However, for those who believe they are receiving this warning in error, this trick could serve as a temporary fix until Adobe’s AI system improves.
