Use Canva to generate an AI image

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create visual content such as posters, infographics, social media graphics, and more using a drag-and-drop interface. You can now also use Canva to generate an image with AI and use it in a regular workflow.

Canva wrote me that they recently launched an all-in-one page dedicated to Canva AI Image Generators. This new page offers users convenient access to a wide range of image generators, templates, and design tips.

With this tool, users can effortlessly create personalized images to meet their unique graphic design needs. Discover the limitless possibilities and unleash your creativity with Canva's AI Image Generator today!

What generative AI does Canva use?

Canva's AI image generator is based on a technology called Stable Diffusion, an open source text-to-image model that is capable of generating photo-realistic images for whatever you want to create a picture of. The app is part of Canva's design suite, so you do need a Canva account to use it.

If you are working with social media, presentations, or other visual tasks, I definitely recommend to check Canva out.
