The Verge Looks at Google's New Magic Editor for Images

Emma Roth writes the following in “Google’s New Magic Editor Pushes Us Toward AI-Perfected Fakery” for The Verge:

One of the most impressive demos at Google I/O [held May 10] started with a photo of a woman in front of a waterfall. A presenter onstage tapped on the woman, picked her up, and moved her to the other side of the image, with the app automatically filling in the space where she once stood. They then tapped on the overcast sky, and it instantly bloomed into a brighter cloudless blue. In just a matter of seconds, the image had been transformed.

The AI-powered tool, dubbed the Magic Editor, certainly lived up to its name during the demo. It’s the kind of tool that Google has been building toward for years. It already has a couple of AI-powered image editing features in its arsenal, including the Magic Eraser, which lets you quickly remove people or objects from the background of an image. But this type of tool takes things up a notch by letting you alter the contents—and potentially, the meaning—of a photo in much more significant ways.
