Like thispersondoesnotexist, GauGAN (named after artist Paul Gauguin and GANs, i.e. generative adversarial networks) is another GAN-based tool developed by NVIDIA.
This interactive app uses familiar paint program devices such as paint buckets and brushes to suggest a landscape in the form of a segmentation map on the left side of the screen. The GAN simultaneously translates your scribbling into a virtual landscape of your choice on the right side of your screen. What is more, as NVIDIA writes, â€œUsers can even upload their own filters to layer onto their masterpieces, or upload custom segmentation maps and landscape images as a foundation for their artwork.â€
To launch the program, make sure to check the terms-of-use box at the bottom of the screen. Next, choose an image to â€œoverpaintâ€ on the right side of the screen and start making your virtual landscape.
A very short learning video on YouTube is useful: It takes a while to get the hang of this application.
With enough practice, you might even create style images for use with DDG
