Picsart adds AI avatars to feature set

Picsart launched its newest generative AI feature, AI Avatar.

Picsart launched its latest generative AI feature, AI Avatar. The company says the feature uses “advanced machine learning algorithms” to process users’ photos to turn them into unique artistic portraits. Simply upload several selfies into the app and the technology will generate a selection of avatars that resemble you in a variety of different artistic styles including Holiday Cheer, Superhero, Anime, and Main Character Energy.

AI Avatar offers creators the ability to customize their avatars even further using Picsart’s powerful editing tools, such as BG Remove, AI Enhance, and AI Background. Avatars can be used in many different contexts, such as for profile pictures for social media, creating marketing materials, making holiday greetings, and more.

“The ability for AI to create completely new portraits of a person in minutes was unheard of a year ago,” said Mikayel Vardanayan, Chief Product Officer, Picsart. “Generative AI empowers everyone to make amazing things, and we’re excited to bring this new feature to creators everywhere along with all of our other powerful editing tools. AI Avatar is a fun, trending and transformative technology and we have much more of that to come.”

AI Avatar is Picsart’s latest addition to its suite of AI tools, including the AI Image Generator, which has created more than 30 million images and users are generating more than one million images per day. Picsart also released AI Background and AI Replace which can generate new objects and scenes in images.

AI Avatar is available now on Picsart on iOS and Android devices and can be purchased in packs of 50, 100, and 200.
