Free AI tool restores old photos by creating slightly new loved ones
You can find AI that creates new images, but what if you want to fix an old family photo? You might have a no-charge option. Louis Bouchard and PetaPixel have drawn attention to a free tool recently developed by Tencent researchers, GFP-GAN (Generative Facial Prior-Generative Adversarial Network), that can restore damaged and low-resolution portraits. The technology merges info from two AI models to fill in a photo's missing details with realistic detail in a few seconds, all the while maintaining high accuracy and quality.
The technique aims to preserve the "identity" of people in a photo, with a particular focus on facial features like eyes and mouths. While it's surprisingly accurate, it's making educated guesses about missing content.
