Image Based Generative AI

How I use AI for communication and influence our traffic safety world.
Scared - FREE Car Seat.png

Images, Icons, Photos, & More

I use AI to also generate images, icons, phots and more to help you tell a story.

Here's an image I generated and then Photoshopped onto a photo I took of some "Free" Car seats on the curb.   I then had AI help me write an impactful blog post to help inform families and our community about the dangers of "Free" car seats from the curb.

Read the Blog Post here:  The Hidden Dangers of Used Car Seats: A Matter of Child Safety

Oh, and if you haven't guessed it...all of the images you've seen here have been AI generated.  I'll post more examples below.

Some (there are likely hundreds joining the mix daily) of the leaders in the AI Image Generation world are

  • MidJorney

  • Microsoft's CoPilot (Part of OpenAI's ChatGPT & DallE)

  • Stable Diffusion

  • Sora (Open AI's Text to Video - Not yet available to the public)

 

About the AI Photos and Images below: 

  1. I didn't need to get a photo release.

  2. There's no copyright issues.

  3. I didn't have to hire a photographer or a model.   

  4. I simply entered in a "Text Prompt" asking AI to generate the image.

  5. Boom! Review (Human Oversite), Copy, Paste, Post!  (Also with some photoshopping as noted below)   Enjoy.

The Prompt:  Native American Teen Driving a Pickup, wearing seatbelt, portrait photography, beautiful, sunlight, smooth light, real photography fujifilm superia, full HD, taken on a Canon EOS R5 F1.2 ISO100 35MM

Note:  The original image did not produce a seatbelt.  I had to photoshop the seatbelt into the image.

The Prompt:  a happy infant in a car seat with a properly placed chest clip

Note:  Despite the prompt, of a "Properly Placed Chest Clip" I have yet to have AI produce a properly fitted and installed car seat.   I think AI was absent during the CPST training.  So, I've used images like this in a "Spot The Error" type of thing.

Megladon Photo - Final.png

The Prompt:  Multiple Prompts were used. 

  1. Pixar Cartoon, happy family with 2 young children, standing outside of car posing for a photo, mountain road background.

  2. Cartoon of a happy shark on a white Background

Note:  I then had to photoshop the shark on the top of the car.  I photoshopped the seatbelt on the shark and then added the sigh.    Here's a link to the blog post about this goofy image - The Blog post was also written by AI:  https://www.drivesafemissoula.com/post/the-missoula-megalodon

Firefighter - North Pole.png

The Prompt:   A happy female Christmas elf, dressed as a Christmas firefighter with a Santa like fire outfit, African American, standing next to the north pole, 3D, plain white background

schmidty3947_a_pixar_cartoon_of_a_very_happy_and_excited_Albert_017b17d5-dcbc-4d4e-8c57-21

The Prompt:   a pixar cartoon of a very happy and excited Albert Einstein using AI Technology on a computer

It's all about "Prompt Engineering" and most of the time I don't get exactly what I'm asking for until the 10th try.   It takes a bit of work, but sometimes AI produces exactly what I'm looing for on the first try.   Play around with it and let me know if I may be of service.   ---Schmidty
