A recent survey from Venngage yielded some interesting insights on the importance of visuals for marketers. Among the findings:

  • 51.4% of marketers indicated that 90-100% of all their content has some form of visuals.
  • 41% of marketers suggested that original graphics perform best.
  • 31.8% of marketers expressed that their biggest challenge with content for social media is consistently producing visual assets.

Fortunately, recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) are starting to democratize access to quality social media visuals. New AI-powered tools can help brands create high-quality visuals (images and videos) efficiently without having to invest in expensive software. These tools can improve the quality of existing images, automate parts of design processes, and even generate custom graphics from a simple text prompt.

In this article, let’s look at five such tools to learn about their features and how they can help you create stellar social media visuals that earn your audience’s attention and leave a lasting impression.

1. DALL-E: Realistic Images and Art From Text

DALL-E is a language-based generative model that can create original digital images from textual descriptions. It is capable of creating unique and complex images with various objects, textures, and compositions, making it a powerful tool for your social media team.

To get started, all you need to do is provide a concise description of your social media visual requirement. Within seconds, the AI-powered tool will generate numerous images for you to choose from. 

Here is an example of an image generated from the prompt “An astronaut riding a horse in photorealistic style”:

Apart from saving a lot of time and effort, DALL-E creates original and complex visuals based on your brand’s objectives and your audience’s interests, enabling you to stand out from the crowd.

Pricing: It depends on the number of images you generate and the resolution you generate them in. For instance, a 1024 x 1024 image will cost you $0.02 per image and a 256 x 256 image will cost you $0.016 per image.

2. Facetune: Standout Selfies and Portraits

Facetune is an AI-powered photo editing application that allows users to edit and enhance their selfies and portraits on mobile devices. It can refine your snaps to remove blemishes, whiten teeth, smoothen skin, and other enhancements. 

You can use Facetune’s AI-powered features to change the patterns on your clothing and the colours of your makeup, to really let your creativity run wild in post-production. Furthermore, the AI Avatars feature allows you to upload photos, and then the generative AI creates your lookalike in different visual styles and situations.

3. Let’s Enhance: Upscale Images Without Losing Quality

Let’s Enhance is an AI-based tool that enhances and upscales the quality of digital media within seconds by improving its resolution. The tool uses machine learning to analyze and optimize images and videos, resulting in enhanced visuals with improved colour, contrast, and sharpness.

Let’s Enhance offers a range of enhancement options, from basic colour correction to high-level image restoration, and it can be used to improve the quality of images captured on low-quality cameras or in bad lighting conditions.
