Is artificial intelligence the absolute evil?
Does technology hurt? Will Midjourney and company replace our work? Will the graphic designers no longer know what to do?
Like many others, I too was intrigued by the dominance that the use of artificial intelligence is gaining lately and before judging, I decided to try it.
So, a few days ago, I also delved into the meanderings of Midjourney and I understood that yes, it creates unpublished images and on the verge of reality, but always and in any case upon a specific request (prompt) from a person who describes through words what that (in his head) he imagines.
However, while describing a complex scene, with different characters (I wanted to create a cover for the book Alice in Wonderland) I discovered that the more details I added, the more errors there were in the realization (in my case Alice with a disfigured face, or horror movies 😅 , or rabbits that seemed genetically modified and other supernatural subjects that had little to do with my requests).
So I decided to focus on one detail at a time, on one subject at a time, extrapolating the pieces that convinced me, to then create the photocomposition you see with dear old Photoshop 😊
If artificial intelligence is absolute evil? In my opinion, no, if used wisely, knowledge and creativity can be an added value, it can help us create things that weren’t possible before.
What do you think about it?
