DragGAN is a new AI app that enables you to easily adjust photos and art by dragging across the image. It really is that simple and, frankly, I’m a little obsessed with it.
We’ve seen how Diffusion apps, such as DALLE.2, Stable Diffusion and Midjourney, can work to freak us out with AI house party images and fake beer commercials but now we’re beginning to see uses of GANs (generative adversarial networks), and these are a little more useful, if DragGAN is anything to go by.
While this AI image editing software is in its early stages – DragGAN exists as a white paper – the results are mesmeric. DragGAN is an interactive way of editing photos or works of art by tagging points on an image and just… dragging. The AI does all the hard work.
The app uses AI to manipulate images. There’s some tech jargon at play but essentially the AI enables you to affect the image while maintaining its integrity; essentially DragGAN allows you to deform images using interactive points, and the generative AI assists with the changes for smooth and accurate end result.
