The Microsoft Designer app has made its debut as a public preview, following its initial announcement in October 2022. This innovative app is Microsoft’s take on AI art tools like OpenAI’s DALL-E 2, which gained significant popularity recently. Unlike DALL-E 2, which focuses on creating single images for artistic purposes using design learning models, Microsoft’s Designer app is designed to aid users in crafting social media posts, invitations, digital postcards, graphics, and more creative projects.

Intended as a free tool, the Designer app serves as a graphic design assistant that allows you to combine your images with text prompts to generate the designs you require. Although it differs from DALL-E, leaning more towards applications like Canva or Adobe Express, it will soon be integrated into Microsoft’s Edge browser, offering enhanced accessibility.

Microsoft plans to enhance the app by introducing new features such as Fill, Expand Background, Erase, and Replace Background tools that will leverage AI augmentation. This integration aims to facilitate the generation of quality images—both static and animated—as well as social media captions and hashtags for shareable experiences. By using Microsoft’s Designer app, users can streamline their creative process without having to navigate through multiple generators.

Using the Designer app is user-friendly; you can simply initiate image generation by entering a text query and receiving an AI-created image in response. The app further assists by providing descriptive suggestions based on your input to refine your creations.

Upon selecting an image and specifying your intended use (e.g., creating an Instagram post), the Designer app offers various design templates incorporating the image. Users can tweak templates using editing tools within the app interface seamlessly.

Additionally, users have the option to upload their own images and follow a similar template selection process tailored to their specifications. Noteworthy is that some templates offer animation elements even if the uploaded image remains static within the frame.

Once satisfied with your creation edits, you may download the image or utilize AI-generated captions & hashtags for direct sharing across social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Despite offering solid AI-generated results, some may find the initial templates relatively basic; however, exploring additional template options could yield more aesthetically pleasing designs though it might add complexity to the creation process.

As this release is currently in public preview stage with ongoing refinements being made based on user feedback before its official launch date. With exciting advancements on the horizon via features like Copilot+ PCs aimed at revolutionizing interactions through continuous AI support integrated into Windows 11 environments.

Notably in this evolving landscape of Generative AI technology beyond mere chatbot conveniences but also delving into visually compelling realms such as Google’s Veo model for generating videos from text prompts much akin to OpenAI’s Sora model realm promising noteworthy strides ahead for modern workplaces embracing generative AI applications for increased productivity advantages found through utilizing GenAI tools powered by Artificial Intelligence mechanisms effectively reshaping industries one innovation at a time.
