Microsoft, which unveiled a new AI-powered design tool called Microsoft Designer last year, has now launched a public preview version of the program with an extensive set of features.
Designer is a web-based program similar to Canva that can create designs for presentations, posters, digital postcards, invitations, and other items, so they can be used on social networks and other channels. This program uses user-generated content and OpenAI’s DALL-E 2, a text-to-image AI, to create designs.
Features of Microsoft Designer AI tool
This tool can create relevant written captions and hashtags for social media posts, and also offer multiple suggestions to users so they can choose their desired option. Additionally, this tool can create animated images with background and moving text using AI.
Microsoft says that Designer will receive more editing features in the future, including the ability to place an object in a graphic and automatically fill in the rest of a picture. Other features, such as “erase” and “replace background” also allow users to remove or modify objects, people, or other items present in the background of images.
Microsoft says Designer will remain available for free preview during the period and can be accessed through its website and also on the Microsoft Edge sidebar. When the program becomes generally available, it will be part of personal and family subscriptions to Microsoft 365. It will have free features for non-subscribers as well, although no further details have been provided on this matter.
