Yesterday, GANpaint launched on Product Hunt and shows how creative tools of the future may work.
The tech uses AI to add, delete and edit objects, and draws with object-level control using a deep nueural network (a GAN). More specifically, this tool takes the natural image in a specific category — let’s say churches — and allows modifications with brushes that draw things like trees, domes, brick-textures, etc.
GANpaint is the latest in a slew of creative, experimental AI-driven tools aiming to be the next Photoshop.
It’s worth noting that Photoshop got an update with a “magical” AI-powered selection tool in early 2018. If you’re an artist or a designer, try some of these out to see if they save you some output:
📸 Remove.bg uses AI to quickly remove the background from any photo
📱 BG App does the same thing for photos on iOS
😁 Lensa is an AI-powered photo editing app for selfies
🌄 Nvidia GuaGAN uses AI to turn sketches into photorealistic landscapes
👀 Mosaic uses AI to make your Insta feed better
