Innovative Marketing Imagery Using AI Tools
In the digital jungle of modern marketing, the lion’s roar is AI. As a photographer who’s always game for a creative romp, I took a walk on the wild side with DALLE and ChatGPT. The mission? To marry AI-generated imagery with classic photography. Spoiler alert: It’s like putting pumpkin seed oil on vanilla ice cream – unexpectedly awesome (try it, it really is awesome!).
Understanding DALLE and ChatGPT, The Dynamic Duo
Enter DALLE and ChatGPT, OpenAI’s brainchildren. Imagine if Picasso and Shakespeare had a tech baby – that’s DALLE with its image wizardry and ChatGPT with its silver-tongued replies. Unlike your vanilla photo editing tools, these AI virtuosos juggle creativity and practicality like circus stars.
The AI Takeover in Creative Marketing: Not Just a Flash in the Pan
AI in marketing isn’t just strutting its stuff on the runway; it’s here to stay. It’s like having an army of invisible elves crafting personalized, pixel-perfect content at lightning speed. Ads, emails, social media posts – you name it, AI’s got its fingerprints all over them.
Playing Picasso with Pixels: My AI Art Adventure
So, I took a shot at blending a tasty food photo from my archives with an AI-generated “backdrop”. The twist? DALLE and ChatGPT are more ‘create-from-scratch’ than ‘mix-and-match’. But hey, where’s the fun without a little challenge? Enter Photoshop, my trusty sidekick, to weave them together.
Your Cheat Sheet to AI Image Crafting
Want in on the action? Start with a description that’s juicier than a season finale cliffhanger. Let DALLE do its magic, then play digital dress-up with Photoshop. It’s like playing matchmaker for pixels – sometimes, they just click.
Case Study: The Food Photo That Met AI, Creating Innovative Marketing Imagery
In a recent project, I merged a photograph from my food photoshoot, which I wrote about here on my photo web with a creative image idea created using DALLE/ChatGPT.
Although uploading photos to ChatGPT has recently been offered as a new option, this option does not include the possibility of combining photos. Or as ChatGPT explains it best himself in her/his/its/their own words:
“Unfortunately, I am unable to directly manipulate images or extract elements from one image and place them into another. My capabilities are limited to generating new images based on the descriptions provided.
If you require the exact burger from your photograph to be included in the image with the gladiator, this would typically require manual photo editing work using software like Photoshop, which is not something I can assist with. If you’re looking for that level of specificity, I recommend using the services of a professional graphic designer who can ensure the burger from your photo is accurately represented in the new context.”
So, the process involved generating the main image with ChatGPT/DALLE, followed by a dash of Photoshop magic. The result was an interesting innovative marketing imagery that could capture the audience. Probably. 🙂
