New Avatars Will Be Generated by Graphical Apps in 2023
Have you gotten on board with the latest digital craze? Generative Art. It is becoming all the rage these days. Maybe you received a text-to-image generator app for Christmas and can’t wait to create a new avatar.
Picsart has announced a new AI selfie generator allowing users to create personalized avatars of themselves.
Called AI Avatar, the new tool allows users to generate self-portraits that look like a digital artist created them. The avatars can be purchased in packs of 50, 100, and 200, which cost $3.99, $4.99, and $6.99 respectively.
AI image generators have recently seen a surge in popularity with AI photo editing apps dominating the app store charts earlier this month.
We found a piece on petapixel.com that explains the recent rush to these generator apps.
Picsart’s offering is based on the Stable Diffusion software which uses advanced machine learning algorithms to turn users’ photos into “unique artistic portraits.”
It says: “Simply upload several selfies into the app and the technology will generate a selection of avatars that resemble you in a variety of different artistic styles including: Holiday Cheer, Superhero, Anime and Main Character Energy. Whether users want to create a more impressionist, cartoonish or more realistic avatar, the feature has them covered.”
But you must remember that many of these apps are being used nefarious by some bad actors. By taking the innocent selfie you made and turning it into a sexually explicit photograph that you knew nothing about.
Picsart Chief Product Officer, Mikayel Vardanaya, says the pace of AI image technology development is staggering.
“The ability for AI to create completely new portraits of a person in minutes was unheard of a year ago,” he says.
Generative AI will only get better with time, and features like AI Avatar showcase the magic of this technology and provide our users with more opportunities to express their creativity and individuality.
AI-powered photo editing app Lensa has been around since 2018. It offers an array of tools that includes allowing users to remove objects from photos, remove blemishes from selfies, and change backgrounds.
Personally, I prefer the real image as compared to the avatar but to each his own. Just use caution when engaging in some of these apps.
