AI headshot generators are helping people save less on professional photos?
If you’ve ever had a photoshoot of any kind—birthdays, weddings, team shots—you’d understand the work that goes into them—from picking the best outfits, getting a makeup artist, booking the best available photographer, picking the perfect location, and even creating time out of your already busy schedule. It’s a whole adventure that anyone would want to seek the easier way out, and this is why millions are making a rave about AI headshot generators.
“Photographers are shaking.” “AI generators cannot replicate the originality and creativity of photographers.” Whatever the statement, millions of people are talking about this new wave. AI headshot generators use artificial intelligence to create high-quality, realistic images.
There’s been a lot of positive feedback, as many attest to being able to get 100+ photos at a price that costs less than “outfits”. The endearing perks are that the images are in different styles and locations, so users don’t even have to leave their houses. It’s simply: give us your face, relax, and we’ll do the rest. It’s a big catch for creatives, especially LinkedIn-savvy people who know the power of headshots. Aside from the challenge of having extra arms or distorted fingers in some images, users are getting a run for their money with far more preferred pictures than disliked.
Photographers around the world are reacting negatively to this as they fear the effect it would have on their jobs, as in the corporate world, headshots usually amount to a large percentage of funds for them.
In recent social media posts, there are a lot of people talking about how AI has come to stay, and that people only need to become better at their jobs such that it would be near impossible to be replaced by machines. In the coming weeks, we may see the popularization of a new hashtag, #AIiscoming, as the possibilities of AI are increasing daily. Last year, we saw posts about AI models and even AI office assistants, so what’s next, AI architects?
Human interaction cannot be eliminated because humans are quick to adapt to changes and make the best of them. But how far is too far?
