Would You Like To Draw Better?

A new AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool will help you take a simple face scratch and turn it into a realistic photo.

The new algorithm take simple draws, analyze different aspects of the picture and create a full face image.

Scientists in the Chinese Science Academy in Beijing published a research and revealed an AI algorithm that take simple draws and turn them into a picture full with details.

The algorithm called DeepFaceDrawing, which help users with low drawing skills to produce high quality picture.

This is not the first time that AI is used to create pictures, a tool named Pix2Pix did it (very poorly) before, but the new AI tool looks much more promising than the old one.

The AI tool rely mostly on statistics, instead of demanding a full draw with all the elements, the tool go over all the objects in the data base, which includes faces and face parts, then it decides how to build the best face possible. So the tool analyze each face part first and then combine them all.

In the science paper the researches writes – “Recent deep image-to-image translation techniques allow fast generation of face images from freehand sketches. However, existing solutions tend to overfit to sketches, thus requiring professional sketches or even edge maps as input. To address this issue, our key idea is to implicitly model the shape space of plausible face images and synthesize a face image in this space to approximate an input sketch. Our method essentially uses input sketches as soft constraints and is thus able to produce high-quality face images even from rough and/or incomplete sketches.” 

This is how the program works –

Don’t you want to make each and every photo you take more attractive with a push of a button? Now you can!

On November 2019, Adobe shared with the world their plans to create a mobile app that will help consumers to edit photos easily. Now, Adobe Photoshop Camera is available on Apple’s app store and on Google Play.

Abhay Parasnis, Adobe CTO, said to The Verge that Adobe’s goal was “Bring the magic of Photoshop directly to your camera’s viewfinder”. According to Parasnis, Adobe doesn’t want to compete with social media apps, and he even hinted that Adobe might even work with those social media companies to add Adobe’s filters to the app.

When you hear the word Adobe you might think you will have the same features as the desktop app has, but unfortunately, you don’t. The features that available are pretty common on editing apps – adjust contrast, exposure, saturation, nothing too special. The uniqueness of this app is the “magic wand”, which changes the picture for you.

The user interface is very friendly – When you start the app you will see more than 5 different filters such as food filter and face filter, when each one consists of multiple variations.

This app meant to save time and help people with no editing skill to edit a photo in few seconds and get a nice results that they will enjoy sharing with their friends.
