One-Click AI to Retouch Vintage Photos

One-Click AI to Retouch Vintage Photos

The wonder of Artificial Intelligence seems to be a hot topic these days, from driving electric cars to tracking buying habits. However, the use of AI in graphic design software is really taking off and promises remarkable results that otherwise would be very difficult to achieve. For example, retouching old photos often requires hours of tedious work to remove scratches, sharpen blurry images, and upscale low resolution images. An app called Remini can do all this and more with a single click and allows up to 5 conversions a day for free. The example above of an old photograph shows how the mottled skin was instantly smoothed and even details that were not in the original, such as individual hairs, were intelligently added. The software seems to do a better job with organic shapes such as faces and not so well with text.

Will The Demand For Graphic Designers Diminish In The Near Future?

Will The Demand For Graphic Designers Diminish In The Near Future?

There’s an obstacle on the horizon. Like almost every other industry, design has been infiltrated by artificial intelligence. Are the robots taking over our designers, too? Will graphic design even be a field in a few years?

As I read this article I was glad to find out that Graphic Design, by human designers, provides a creative visual experience that enhances every brand, whether it’s looking at websites, packaging, signs, or even a book. However, AI has its place in graphic design, and AI-powered design tools and software can be an advantage to designers in search of inspiration.

One thing AI cannot yet provide, and the human designer can, is the human touch when it comes to the understanding of the personality behind a brand. That doesn’t mean that things won’t continue to change and AI design shouldn’t be ignored, because it will become the way of the future. It is important to keep up with new trends and technology. In short, the ability to adapt is key to survival. And that’s what will keep you in high demand.
