Intro do using AI for making cool car pictures

Taking pictures, let alone good/cool ones, is a difficult and time-consuming process to say the most positive thing we can about. It also is a task that requires experience and skill…… both of which we don’t have. However, recent artificial intelligence (AI) advancements have made it possible for anyone to make pictures of cars, but how do they really turn out?

There are now numerous AI-powered car photo editors available online, such as Dall-E, that can automatically enhance photos to make them look their best. They can also make up images of cars, which we will include in a bit so hold your horses.

So, using an AI-powered editor is an awesome option if you want to take some great car pictures but don’t know where to start. We aren’t going to talk about that photo editing stuff though, because first things first we need COOL pictures of cars…

The role of AI in car photography

A new generation of AI-powered cameras is giving car photographers a helping hand in creating the perfect shot. By automatically adjusting settings like shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, these cameras can produce photos that are far superior to those taken with a traditional camera.

AI-powered cameras can also identify objects in a scene and apply the appropriate filters, making it possible to create stunning shots that would otherwise be impossible to capture.

So what does this all mean for the future of car photography? Well, it’s safe to say that AI will play a big role in helping photographers create the perfect picture. We all love when tech allows us to make things come to life like this computer based engine simulator.

But again, in order to even get any value out of these AI powered aspects of taking picture is having the skill, and eyes, to make the pictures good in the first place. So alright, you can help us … but if you double our skill level… we would be sitting at a 2/100…. so let’s skip these steps and just get right to making pictures up.

Examples of car pictures made by AI

So here are a couple of different images that we made, with the prompts included:

The prompt: 1998 acura integra type-r driving around a city, very realistic, photo quality

The photos….

dall e integra
hmmm not really
white acura integra made by ai
getting…. closer???… not really..
yellow acura integra
closest i guess?

Alright so none of them really captured what we think or feel about the acura integra type – r but we could kinda see it a bit… I guess it is like if you asked a kid to draw a type r. Ok let’s move on to some generic imaging and see what this ai can turn out.

Prompt: futuristic car with aggressive lines and a sleek body

futuristic car drawing
getting closer
a nice ai generated car design
now we’re talking
sleek black ai generated car design
now this is more like it

So as we can see, if you let the AI have a pretty open free reign of what you want it to make the output can be pretty cool. But if you want them to make something that is based on a real life car design it does it’s best but it just can’t create it. I can see aspects of the Type R in the images it makes… but it just isn’t what we know it is.

The benefits of using AI for car photography

So while we know that the power of MAKING the images in AI are pretty limited we can talk about the benefits of using AI to make your pictures better.

Many car enthusiasts spend a lot of time and money taking pictures of their cars. Some even go to the extent of hiring professional photographers to take photos of their vehicles. However, with the advent of AI technology, anyone can now take good car pictures using AI.

There are many benefits to using AI for car photography:

  1. It is much cheaper than hiring a professional photographer.
  2. It is much easier to use AI to take good car pictures than it is to use traditional methods.
  3. AI can help you improve the quality of your car pictures significantly.

If you are a car enthusiast, consider using AI for your car photography needs. It will save you a lot of money and time, and you can take better pictures than ever!

The challenges of using AI for car photography

In a rapidly developing world, car photography is one of the most difficult areas to keep up with. The sheer number of new car models and different styles can be overwhelming, and it’s hard to know where to start.

AI can be a great help when taking photos of cars, and it can help you identify the best angle for the shot and make sure that the picture is well-lit. However, there are still some challenges that need to be overcome.

One of the biggest challenges is getting the AI to understand the context of the photo. For example, a close-up shot of a car’s headlights might look good, but it will not give you an idea of what the whole car looks like. You need to tell the AI what kind of shot you’re looking for to get the best results.

Conclusion: is AI the future of car photography?

Yes, AI is the future of car photography. Here’s why:

  1. With AI, you can take photos of cars in any environment and get great results.
  2. AI can help you ensure that every photo is perfect, no matter the lighting conditions or the angle.
  3. AI can even help you choose the best settings for your camera to get the perfect shot every time.

NO, AI isn’t there right now.

  1. AI just doesn’t capture the reality of the history of cars.
  2. The system doesn’t understand mods, like a body kit, etc.
  3. It just doesn’t look real enough to trick users into thinking it is a real life car.

So at the end of the day, there are two distinct aspects of AI that are at play here. There is the adjustments of AI that can help your picture look better which usually turn out pretty well. However, as far as creating life like images that can be used in Import Tuner to trick people into thinking a car exists outside of the Neuro network that AI uses…..

Technology has come a long way from need for speed where you could build your own car, and helped shape your future self’s thought process on which Honda is the best platform to build off of. We can’t wait for things to keep going, as it would be amazing to sit in a full VR system and truly , somehow, feel what a Bugatti feels like. Until then we will just keep playing around online and doing whatever we can to have fun with our cars here at TunedTech.
