AI Art Introduction
Updated: Feb 26
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revolutionized many industries and fields, including the world of art. AI art refers to the use of artificial intelligence algorithms and techniques to create or assist in the creation of visual art. From abstract patterns to portraits, AI art can take many forms and can be used for a variety of purposes.
One of the most exciting aspects of AI art is its ability to generate unique and unpredictable images. AI algorithms can analyze patterns, shapes, and colors to create images that are truly one-of-a-kind.
This opens up a world of creative possibilities for artists, graphic designers, and anyone interested in exploring the intersection of technology and art.
Some notable services available:
One of my favourites so far, this still in beta and you can only access it via a Discord server which is easy enough.
It allows users to create anything they can imagine by expressing it in words, you can even ask ChatGPT to describe a scene for Midjourney.
To start using head over to https://www.midjourney.com
To create images:
Go to one of the "newbie" bot channels
Type /imagine and then whatever you want, for example
/imagine cute dino archer athlete with bow, 8k, hyper realistic, sports
The bot will send you 4 images in around 1 minute.
Click numbered buttons underneath to get upscales (U) which provides a higher quality image or select variations (V) for another set of 4 pictures.
