Canva Launches Free Text-To-Image AI Feature

Design platform Canva is launched a free text-to-image AI tool built on the open-source model of Stable Diffusion. The feature had been in the testing phase since September 2022, according to The Verge.

Canva’s text-to-image tool will come with additional features and customised UI to blend with the platform that users are already familiar with. You will be able to create 100 images daily with the tool.

To use it, you only need to ‘describe the image you want to see’ and you will see samples of how your descriptions can be written. For example, the platform shows you ‘a light watercolor painting of koi fish in a pond’. You also get to choose what style you want, such as photo, drawing, 3D, painting, pattern, and concept art.

When you hit generate, you will see four images to pick from. For now, since text-to-image tools are still in infancy, Canva encourages you to report problematic images like ones that contain violence, n****y, hate speech, and bias and/or stereotype.

“We’re treating this as very much a learning experience for our community,” Cameron Adams, Canva co-founder and chief product officer, said. “We’re keen to get this technology in front of them because it’s an emergent field, and the exact way it works and how customers will interact with it is still being developed.”

The applications of this tool is far-reaching and no doubt, concerns about them will continue to rear their heads until the tech is in a place that it does more good than bad.
