Graphic design is one of the fields that has been most impacted by the development of artificial intelligence. According to statistics provided by Forbes, AI is expected to see an annual growth rate of 37.3% from 2023 to 2030. This rapid growth emphasizes the increasing impact of AI technologies in the coming years.
AI tools help to create graphics, improve quality of images, and streamline routine graphic-related tasks so that professionals could work more efficiently.
In this post, we will talk about how artificial intelligence is used in graphic design. We will have a look at the latest features that Adobe Photoshop has introduced to improve their tool and assess how you can use it to enhance your workflow.
Why graphic design?
There are many kings of design, and AI tools are used in many of those areas such as:
- Web design — creating landing pages and writing code for websites;
- Motion design — animating graphics such as mascots and cartoons;
- 3D-modeling — generating 3D models in minutes;
- Industrial design — helping designers to come up with auto or fashion sketches.
While being helpful, AI can’t completely replace human designers in any of those fields, as they require creativity, good taste, and solid understanding of business requirements. Neither is AI effective in UX/UI and product design that rely much less on actual design skills and much more on the understanding of business logic.
However, in graphic design, AI tools tend to show incredible results and require minimal human intervention. Of course, the right prompting is important and sometimes it takes skill and time to get from neural networks exactly what you want. But the final result requires less correction than in other cases. For example, MidJourney is capable of creating beautiful digital art.
