Popular AI software now creates ‘more realistic’ images
Medjourney It is a widely used software to manipulate artificial intelligence (AI) based on written numerical commands to create works of art. The popularity of these types of online image creation tools has grown rapidly since last year. Other well-known technical AI generators are Stable Diffusion and DALL-E.
