Lensa AI, a photo editing app, has recently become popular with the addition of the Magic Avatar feature, which uses artificial intelligence for unparalleled image editing.
Prisma Labs has been running Lensa AI for Android and iOS since 2018.
The new magic avatar feature works within the app itself, processing between 10 and 20 avatars using an open source artificial intelligence model called Stable Diffusion.
The application provides this process through the Amazon AWS cloud computing platform. Since the images are processed with artificial intelligence technology, the process takes a long time compared to the editing processes provided by traditional photo editing apps. This may take up to 40 minutes.
And thanks to the magic avatar feature, the Lenza app was downloaded 1.6 million times in November alone. And in October last year, the number of downloads was about 220,000, which means that the app’s growth rate was 600 percent. Now the total number of app downloads has reached 20 million.
To address privacy concerns, Prisma Labs states that user profile pictures and the corresponding form are permanently removed from its servers once magical avatars have been created.
Those who want to try magic avatars can download the application from the Google Play Store for Android and from the App Store for iOS system, then open the application, then click the yellow button called “Magic Avatars”, then select 10 to 20 personal images, then click “Continue” .
Payment of duties
Once the images are selected, the app asks the user to pay the necessary fees to create magical avatars, which start at $3.99, depending on the number required, which can be represented by three options: 50 images, 100 images, or 200 images. Depending on the number of selected photos, the processing takes from 20 to 40 minutes.
It is noteworthy that recently we have seen a boom in the number of services based on artificial intelligence technology, such as ChatGPT and Dall-E.
OpenAI recently launched ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence-based chatbot that is wildly popular, and prior to that, the company launched Dall-E, a tool to create an image from a text description.
