An artificial intelligence company ‘OpenAI’ has created a new tool that allows users to imagine a world beyond the frame of their favorite artwork.
It is named “Outpainting”, the tool was designed by employees at the San Francisco firm OpenAI as part of their innovative text-to-image generator, DALL-E 2.
DALL- E 2 “Outpainting” allows users to extend existing images and works of art with AI generated content.
The easy use tool requires just two steps, with users simply selecting the artwork they want to play with and then typing in what they want to see added.
Outpainting helps users extend their creativity by continuing an image beyond its original borders, simply by using a natural language description.
DALL-E 2 takes a text prompt, like “an astronaut riding a horse in the style of Andy Warhol,” and generates nine 1,024-pixel by 1,024-pixel images that illustrate it.
DALL-E 2 uses a process called “diffusion” where it starts with randomly generated noise and then edits it to match the salient features of the prompt as closely as possible.
With the help of Outpainting users can extend the original image, creating large-scale images in any aspect ratio.
Creatives hoping to recreate their favorite artwork may have to be patient. However, with a waitlist already in place for Outpainting due to high demand.
