Many apps and websites are popping up that utilize artificial intelligence to enhance photos with a single tap. Such apps include PhotoRoom, Lensa, Facetune, HotPot, removebg, and apps by Lighttricks (Lightleap, Photoleap, Videoleap, & Beatleap).
The benefits of artificial intelligence over traditional photoshop editing methods include saving time, a lower learning curve, ease of use, and a better end product. Photography is not about the level of difficulty, while those in the know admire it, but should be appreciated solely for the final product.
These advanced photo editing apps create stunning pieces nearly instantaneously. And can even restore historic monochromatic images to color for the first time.
This Hotpot AI service analyzes black and white pictures and turns them into realistic color photos. To do this, we built off the wonderful DeOldify project and applied proprietary advancements based on the latest techniques in deep learning, a subfield of machine learning.
The outcome is a sophisticated prediction about the colors of the people and objects in a picture, but like any prediction, it could be wrong or biased. For instance, our AI might colorize a shirt blue when it was actually red.
