A research page about a new AI image tool that's basically Photoshop on steroids is so popular the website is crashing
- A new AI tool, part of a research effort, could allow users to quickly edit and morph photos.
- The tool would let users quickly adjust the positions, stances, expressions and sizes of photo subjects.
If you haven't quite mastered the array of conventional photo-editing tools, there could be an AI for that in the near future.
A group of researchers from institutions including Google, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania have put out a paper explaining a new AI tool that could help users quickly change pictures.
A page by the researchers showing video demos of the tool is already crashing as aspiring users flock to the site, The Verge reported. The tool itself doesn't appear yet to be available to the masses, but the videos on the site show how quickly the subjects of a photo can be altered by simply dragging the cursor around and pushing buttons.
The researchers wrote that the tool would allow users to basically "'drag' any points of the image to precisely reach target points in a user-interactive manner," according to their page.
The demos show how the tool can help change the expressions, stance, orientation, actions, and dimensions of any subject in a photo. One of the videos shows a dog being made stockier, open its maw, and having its demeanor and size adjusted by simple dragging movements.
The tool could be the latest in an array of AI tools being opened up to the public, like OpenAI's DALL-E image generation tool, and many others.
The researchers behind the tool did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday morning.
