Have you ever wanted to describe an image hand ave it created for you? With Open AI’s new artificial intelligence system DALL·E 2 you can do just that, as it creates realistic images and art from a worded description. 

Not only can DALL·E 2 create images from the text, but it can also combine concepts, attributes and artistic styles. While some of the best photo editing software can be used to achieve the same results, DALL·E 2 requires a lot less effort from the creator. It can add and remove elements into a photo while taking into account natural elements such as shadows, reflections and texture. Are you wondering, like us, how AI is changing photography and photo editing?
