Even after adding new AI image creation features to Google Bard, Google has decided to launch a standalone tool to create images from text prompts.

ImageFX reaches a market that already features several other production image AI platforms, such as Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, Copilot, DALL-E, Canva Pro AI, and others. To differentiate itself, the new technology features “expression chips.”

This means ImageFX will be able to more quickly explore other variations of a user-submitted original idea, choosing between realistic, hand-drawn, abstract, impressionistic and more styles.

Additionally, Imagen 2, which powers the new AI, is powered by the latest advances in text-to-image conversion from Google DeepMind through a diffusion-based model.

For transparency, all images generated contain SynthID, a digital watermark added directly to the image pixels, and IPTC metadata.
