Transforming drawings into realistic landscapeimages

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, “Users 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.”

To launch the program, make sure to check the terms-of-use box at the bottom of the screen. Next, choose an image to “overpaint” 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.
