Facebook and Instagram to get new AI tools for photo editing and video creation

Facebook and Instagram will receive new AI-based tools that will allow users to edit photos and create “high-quality videos” using text descriptions. This was reported by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, according to The Verge.

The new features are based on Emu, the company’s basic model for creating images. The first tool is called Emu Edit and will allow users to modify images based on the text they enter.

The video demonstration of Emu Edit shows that it is similar to existing tools from Adobe, Google, and Canva that allow you to remove or replace objects in a photo without the need for professional image editing experience.

Emu Edit seems to be able to identify the desired object in the photo on its own, so users don’t have to manually select the part of the photo they want to change.

Another tool that Meta is working on is called Emu Video. It can generate videos from text prompts, images, or a combination of both.

It is not yet clear when exactly users will be able to try out the new features on Facebook or Instagram.

Recently, it became known that Meta is working on several AI tools for Facebook. One of them is called Write with AI. Its goal is to help users write unique and personalized posts for the social network. Another tool will help create images for profiles.
