Here you can just see a photo created by the AI image generator DALL-E 2. AI photography is a new and exciting technology that makes it possible to generate stunning and realistic photos that would otherwise be impossible to see or take.
What are AI generated photos?
AI generated photos are a new digital medium created using artificial intelligence. It involves using existing photos and transforming them into something new through machine learning. The result is a completely new kind of image that can be not only photorealistic, but also creative and original.
AI-generated photos have gained tremendous popularity in recent years and are already being used by numerous companies and organizations today. They are great for advertising or website and social media design. Artists, too, are increasingly discovering the wide range of possibilities offered by AI-generated photos.
AI generated photos - examples
There are different types of AI-generated photos that you can create. Some are just plain funny, others can actually be pretty impressive. Here are some of the most popular types of AI-generated photos:
- Meme photos. This type of photo is usually a funny picture with a short, witty text underneath. Meme photos are often shared on social media and are a great way to make people laugh.
- Cute photos. Cute photos are pictures of cute animals or people that are often very heartwarming. This kind of photo is perfect to please someone or just to lift the mood.
- Landscape photos. Landscape photos showcase breathtaking views and can include both nature shots and cityscapes. This type of photo is perfect for people who love to travel or just admire the beauty of the world.
- Art photos. Art photos are images that have been artistically created using the means of photography. This type of photo can be both abstract and realistic and is ideal for people who like to look at art or are artistic themselves.
- Historical photos. Historical photos are images that show significant historical events. This type of photo is perfect for people who are interested in history or just have an interest in significant events.
What are the advantages of AI generated photos?
When it comes to providing photos, there are two extremes- stock photos and professional photographs. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but what about a third option? Artificial intelligence (AI) generated photos are a possible middle ground that combines the best features of both sides.
Stock photos are cheap or even free, but they often look worn and inauthentic. Professional photography, on the other hand, offers high quality, authenticity and credibility, but can be expensive – especially for companies with limited budgets. AI generated photos fall somewhere in between, offering both quality and quantity at affordable prices:
- AI generated photos are usually more realistic than artificially created photos.
- AI generated photos can be of better quality as they are created using more modern techniques.
- AI generated photos can be unique because they were not created by a human photographer.
- AI generated photos can be created in less time and are cost effective. With neuroflash, for example, you can generate up to 5 AI images for free per month.
AI generated images and people
Unfortunately, artificial intelligence still has a problem with depicting people in photorealistic quality. While images like portraits are not an obstacle:
AI-generated photos of people often result in facial features being distorted. This makes the people in the AI images look unrealistic and sometimes really creepy:
So how can you get around this problem? First of all, it is important to know how to type the correct text prompt in order to get the best possible results. Another way to further improve the AI results is to open the images in Photoshop and enlarge them from 72 dpi to 300 dpi using Preserve Details 2.0.
In the latest version of Photoshop (Beta), there is a “Photo Recovery” feature under “Neural Filters” that usually does wonders for eyes and other odd facial features. I then just do some basic curve and color correction and lighten the eyes a bit. And Voilà:
Frequently asked questions & answers
What does AI generated photos mean?
AI generated photos are photos that are generated using AI, or artificial intelligence.
How are AI generated photos created?
AI generated photos are a new digital medium created using artificial intelligence. This uses existing photos and machine learning to transform them into something new
What AI generated photos can you create?
With some exceptions (like violent material), AI can create all sorts of images. So there are no limits to your creativity.
Are AI generated photos protected by copyright?
So far, there is no clear answer to this question. However, in most countries, there are no laws specifically created for artificial intelligence. This means that the courts will have to decide whether or not AI images fall under existing copyright law.
