Like many of you, I have been reading a lot lately about Artificial Intelligence (AI). And, like many of you, have come away with mixed feelings about it all. Nonetheless I find it fascinating.
Recently I read a few articles about the role of AI in art and saw many examples of what could be created using AI. There are several platforms out there and you can read/compare some of them here: https://www.tomsguide.com/features/5-best-ai-image-generators-tested-and-compared
Yesterday I decided to play with one just to see what might happen. Surprisingly there wasn’t too steep a learning curve and it didn’t take long to figure out how to use the program. Oh, I guess I should mention what platform I used. I tried https://leonardo.ai
It didn’t take long and before I knew it I had created 2 images that were far better than I thought I would get. The two images you see below are the result of my trial. Both of these images are what the AI generated, the only other thing I did to each of them was bring them into PhotoShop to sharpen them a little and to adjust the brightness. That’s it!
So, what do you think? I would be interested in your take.
