The recently released text-to-image generator by Facebook's and Instagram's parent company was trained using 1.1 billion public images from the two websites. Unfortunately, this fun online resource that is powered by artificial intelligence is only available in the US for the time being.

Although it might seem that Meta is late to the party, the company behind Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp is taking things very seriously and is closing 2023 by testing "more than 20 new ways" to improve the user experience across its services with the help of artificial intelligence. These improvements also target the Messenger service which started as a part of Facebook.

While the virtual assistant known as Meta AI has multiple purposes that go beyond image creation from text, Imagine with Meta AI only delivers text-to-image generation via a standalone website. However, a Meta account is needed, but creating it shouldn't be a problem. In the images at the end of the article, I sadly had to stop before trying to work with Imagine with Meta AI due to my non-US location.

This web-based service uses an AI model that was trained using 1.1 billion images that are publicly available on Instagram and Facebook. For now, it can only generate images from text prompts, without allowing the user to upload an image that would be used as source. The images generated have a reasonable resolution of 1,280 X 1,280 pixels and can be saved in JPEG format. Obviously, those who want to avoid compression can just take screenshots and then save them in a lossless image format of their choice).

The images generated by Meta's web-based service include a small watermark that reads "Imagined with AI," always placed in the lower left-hand corner of these creations. If everything works well, this service should enter other markets next year as well.
