More and more people are experimenting with a growing collection of Artificial Intelligence-based graphics tools. Some of these tools produce stunning images in a variety of artistic styles, leading some to wonder if art directors will generate their own images rather than continue to pay for graphic design services. Neville and Shel discuss the possibilities in this short mid-week episode.
Some examples that Shel created, first from Midjourney, with a prompt that instructed the AI to produce an image of “a grey-bearded wizard using a wand to assemble a futuristic skyscraper in an ocean in outer space.”
And this, from the Dream app (on Android), with a prompt to produce an image of “a race car driver on a tricycle on the surface of Mars.”
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, August 22. FIR “shorts” — episodes under 15 minutes — will appear once or twice weekly.
We host a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly, request the credentials in our Facebook group, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to Jay Moonah for the opening and closing music.
