Picsart launches AI Avatar tool for creators

Picsart has announced the debut of AI Avatar, its newest generative AI capability, in its app. The trend of creating personalized avatars using artificial intelligence continues to develop, and Picsart is now delivering the technology to its millions of creators, along with a range of unique, best-in-class editing tools and a community directly on the platform. Recently, Meta introduced new editing tools for Facebook and Instagram Reels.

AI Avatar: Generate incredible Avatars from your selfies

Using extensive machine learning techniques, AI Avatar transforms user photographs into one-of-a-kind creative portraits. Simply upload many selfies into the app, and the technology will generate a range of avatars that resemble you in various artistic styles, such as holiday cheer, superheroes, anime, main character energy, and more.

  • To use AI Avatar, all you have to do is upload 10 to 30 selfies to Picsart. Then, AI algorithms will create a group of personalized avatars with different looks.
  • Creators can use AI Avatar to access Picsart’s more advanced editing tools, like BG Remove, AI Enhance, and AI Background.
  • Avatars are used for social networking profiles, marketing materials, holiday greetings, and more.
