So I botched up, but I had fun doing it.
I attempted to use Shutterstock’s AI image generator to create an online holiday message that would use my own aspirational “aesthetic.” A clean background, some classical architectural features, and an organized desk.
What I didn’t expect was the apple logo that resembles a rotund person with a tiny head or the graphic of green spores that look to be multiplying behind my holiday message.
I am a just learning how to structure my queries and modify these results. (I am not very good at it.) Still, it was fun to experiment and try to use an AI tool to generate something creative, even if it is a bit…wonky. (Some of the earlier renditions can be spotted along the bottom of the graphic. Yikes.)
Merriam-Webster’s word of the year is “authentic,” and while this image is anything but, I hope my admission at being a total novice at this technology fits the definition.
I hope that for each of us on LinkedIn, 2024 turns out to be a happy, healthy and peaceful year. I also hope that each of us can grab some of the newer technologies that are coming our way, have fun and play with them, even if we end up with green spores.
