What Is Instagram's AI Photo Trend & How Can You Join In?

Instagram is full of posts featuring stylish portraits that were produced by artificial intelligence. Here is how you can make your own.

There are an increasing number of breathtaking AI-generated portraits circulating on Instagram. Those unfamiliar with this technology may be wondering how they can get involved. Many people are using a photo-editing app to create beautiful portraits of themselves as seemingly otherworldly beings. Other renderings also show cool themes that make the photos look like works of art, ready to be displayed in one's home or a gallery.

The use of AI art generators is rapidly growing in popularity, especially for users who wish to share the results of their images on social media. Popular platforms such as DALL-E and Midjourney Beta paved the way for users of image-editing apps to incorporate artificial intelligence features into their editing applications to produce even more eye-catching images.

A service called Lensa AI lets people create their own set of 'magic avatars.' The app, which is now the #1 top-grossing app in the App Store's Photo & Video store and with over 10 million downloads on Google Play, recently added an AI feature that allows users to submit multiple selfies, resulting in a set of photos demonstrating themselves in a variety of different personas. In order to gain access to Lensa AI app's magic avatars feature, users would need to install the free app and sign up for a paid subscription. In addition, they will also have to pay a one-time fee to obtain the rendered images themselves.

The yearly price of Lensa AI's unlimited subscription is $49.99, but users can try the application out for a week for only $1 if they only want some magic avatars. Users should cancel the subscription afterward to avoid being auto-renewed for the subscription price, which is increasing with the popularity of the application.

It will take some time for the Lensa AI app to process the images, so please click 'Notify me when it finishes,' exit the Lensa AI application, and do other things while you wait. When the notification is sent, users can re-launch the app and then go to the 'Photos' tab and click the 'Magic Avatars' button to find the new avatar pack.

To review all the images on screen at once, tap the magician badge in the avatar pack gallery. Within that gallery, you can save images individually or save the entire collection to the device or camera roll. To participate in the #artificialintelligence trend by posting favorite photos on Instagram and sharing saved avatar images, create a new Instagram post.
