You’ve probably seen images like this before. Generating them is kind of the “in” thing to do.
People take regular images and distort them, sometimes squishing weird images on top of the images.
There’s a guy on Twitter, @weirddalle, who has a whole thread dedicated to these photos. And, he’s racked up over a million subscribers — just by posting those weird, puffy images.
One of his most recent extravagant photos features a Demogorgon – yes, the monster of stranger things – playing basketball.
Another crazy photo from his feed is a photo of Jesus in a Just Dance game. This one earned him 53.3,000 likes.
Another photo he generated and posted on Twitter is of a man removing fish from an ATM.
I tell you, the crazier the picture, the more people like it.
And here’s a secret. You can make these pictures too.
How to generate these strange images?
All it takes is a little program called Craiyon.
Craiyon is an artificial intelligence system available for free. Simply put – I can understand – Craiyon is a website that allows you to generate any image just by typing a few words.
When I say “Generate any image” I mean literally. It will spawn ANYTHING you throw at it.
I thought, “No way is this thing really working.”
Boy, was I wrong-o!
It was my turn to try. I thought I was going to crush Craiyon for sure. I typed in “Black Bear Cradling Baby Yoda”.
Less than a minute later, here’s what I have.
OK. I tried again. This time, I thought I was going to make it really hard.
“A Yorkie Riding A Ferris Wheel” is the next weird phrase I typed into Craiyon.
I didn’t block the AI model drawing image generator at all.
Everything went a little off the rails at that point. I wasted about an hour of my life taking crazy photos.
Conclusion: If I can do it, you can too. And, you totally should!!
It’s great fun and a great way to kill time. LOL!
Just go to Craiyon.com and type the craziest thing you can think of into the box. I want to see your results!!
