Introducing DragGAN: the user-friendly tool that simplifies learning Photoshop by leveraging generative AI.

According to the report, making significant image alterations with DragGAN becomes effortless.

Discover its remarkable features and what sets it apart from other editing tools.


In a research paper co-authored by Google, the Max Planck Institute of Informatics, and MIT CSAIL, DragGAN presents a distinctive method for image manipulation

By simply placing a single point on an image, users can effortlessly modify its structure and pixels as a whole.

Unlike other popular generative AI tools like Dall-E and Midjourney, DragGAN excels at generating precise poses and layouts without the need for highly specific prompts.

Realistic Transformations

The research paper highlights impressive examples that demonstrate DragGAN's capabilities.

For instance, it seamlessly transforms an image of a lion with a closed mouth into one with an open mouth. 

Similarly, it effortlessly alters the perspective of a car, giving the impression of a different angle.

Furthermore, DragGAN extends the height of a mountain effortlessly.

Despite these substantial edits, the resulting images maintain their authenticity, thanks to the remarkable power of generative AI.

Advanced Features

According to the report, DragGAN is praised for its simplicity and intuitiveness.

Its user-friendly interface allows users to quickly understand its functionality without needing to delve into the complexities of the underlying technology.

With DragGAN, desired image alterations can be achieved by adding a starting and ending point.

For example, to create a smile, placing points at the corners of the mouth and slightly further away will initiate the transformation.

DragGAN seamlessly extends the mouth between the points, ensuring realism through generative AI, which handles any gaps in the process.
DragGAN offers a masking feature, allowing selective highlighting of specific image parts for alteration while leaving the rest untouched. 

Photo Editing

DragGAN stands out from existing photo editing tools that manipulate facial expressions and features.

While other tools may provide options for perspective correction, DragGAN goes beyond by allowing users to change the photo's angle of capture.

By hallucinating image data and intelligently generating pixels, DragGAN fills in the gaps that would typically require extensive Photoshop editing.

This unique feature sets DragGAN apart, enabling users to achieve their desired results with enhanced accuracy.
