Initially portraits at the core of the Synthetic Humans collection ai-generated images
In a first step the Synthetic Humans Collection is focusing on portraits. vAIsual’s collection will subsequently rapidly expand its range of images to include full people content. Even the generation of exclusive on demand portraits is in the pipeline.
All images are generated with vAIsual innovative and advanced algorithms. Each portrait has been generated on a white screen, giving users the ability to easily merge these synthetic elements with real life photography backgrounds to create wholly unique content.
No more problems with models related to sensitive issue subjects with ai-generated images
Beside the fascinating art aspect AI generated images require no model releases and have no restrictions related to the presence of actual human models. This opens up a whole new field of safe usage for sensitive topics related to pharmaceuticals, the medical profession and other subjects traditionally not covered by model released images.
