A guide to useful Design & Video AI tools

Sometimes there are so many options you don’t know where to start, currently there are a lot of upcoming AI tools. Earlier we wrote about the emergence of ChatGPT, this time we delve into which AI tools are useful for various processes within the (creative) business community.

AI tools for all your design work

Sometimes you lack inspiration, but it is also possible that you do not have a budget for a design team. This can be (partly) solved with AI tools. From the many available tools, we will name a few that are gaining a lot of attention. With these tools you can, for example, create images, optimize them or adjust them, for example; by removing a background. But they can also be used to develop a corporate identity or even be used for creating art.

Magic studio for image creation

The magic studio has almost everything when it comes to creating the perfect image. This tool now offers two free services, both for creating an image and editing it. With a subscription, you also have access to tools with which you can enlarge the images and create nice profile pictures. While the free version is limited, it’s a nice web graphics tool.

You can try out the tool at magicstudio.com, you will find the following options here:

Magic Imagine: Creates an image from a description

To create an image, you just need to give the tool a description and style. Based on how clear your description is, you will get the desired generated image. You can then give the image a square, portrait or landscape format.

After that, you also get the option to see images similar to your generated image. You can view the description of those images as well. You can use this as inspiration on how to generate the ultimate image. Check out our example:

Magic eraser: Removes elements from images

Sometimes you have one annoying error in your image. A finger in front of the lens or a jar that is just in the way. With the Magic eraser’, you can easily upload an image and erase the parts. The tool processes the concealed part so that it is nicely incorporated into the rest of the image. The limitation of the tool is that you cannot download the original quality of the photo without a subscription. An alternative to this function in the tool is another AI tool that focuses only on this function: Cleanup pictures.

Background eraser: Removes backgrounds

You may have a photo where the background is distracting, or you need the photo without a background (for a website, for example). With the background eraser you can remove the background of the image with one click. However, it is not possible to download the image in its original format without a subscription.

IMGlarger: Enhance your image

We all know the ‘enhancers’ in the Crime tv series, where suddenly the license plate of a car is immediately visible. With IMGlarger it almost becomes reality. It is a tool that can brighten up the pixelated image so that it can be used on all kinds of formats. With a free account, you get 8 credits to enlarge 8 images.
