Microsoft Designer is one of the brand-new creation tools unveiled on Wednesday for Microsoft 365, Microsoft Edge, and Bing. This AI-powered app enables you to start with an idea and let technology handle the majority of the work in generating a creative output.
The new project was developed based on a comparable AI technology to OpenAI’s DALL-E 2. After a well-liked waitlist period following its April 2022 launch, the text-to-art generator has now become accessible to the general public.
The capabilities of the Designer extend beyond the creation of images. The AI-powered app will enable you to produce a variety of creative tasks, such as social media posts, invites, digital postcards, or images. Similar to DALL-E, the Designer program will provide a product that is “completely unique… consistent, aligned, and properly sized,” according to a statement from Microsoft.
Microsoft Designer intends to help social media users
With the aid of artificial intelligence and without the need for the extensive design expertise, Microsoft Designer is intended to assist social media users and managers in producing stunning and unique designs. Users can begin by answering a straightforward prompt about the kind of image they would want to see, and the Designer will begin developing it using AI to produce something distinctive and original.
Users can contribute more content to Microsoft Designer, such as text and images, and the tool will automatically include it in the final design, producing an image that should better suit the user’s needs and take up much less time.
It’s interesting to note that the Designer function in PowerPoint, which provides template possibilities based on the content of your presentation, was the inspiration for the creation of Designer. This approach is a little more sophisticated and beneficial for uses other than standard presentations.
Microsoft Designer will eventually be a part of Microsoft 365, free software with more features available to Microsoft 365 users, and Microsoft is urging individuals to join up for early access. Additionally, Designer will be integrated into Microsoft Edge, allowing you to access its features without switching between apps while posting to social media.
Additionally, the Designer enables you to quickly add additional design elements, such as text or photos, to the AI-generated material. From there, you may download designs for later use and share them as you see fit within the app, whether it be with friends or directly to social networking networks.
The Microsoft Designer software is similar to how you construct a presentation and are also inspired by PowerPoint. The program will present you with design alternatives based on the kind of content you’re attempting to create. According to Microsoft, consumers who have already used PowerPoint have saved over eight billion slide designs, and more are on the way.
How to use Microsoft Designer?
Starting on Wednesday, you may register for a free web preview of Microsoft Designer. Users have the opportunity to use the app and provide feedback to Microsoft. Not all of the features envisioned for the app are now present in the Microsoft Designer preview.
Microsoft has not specified a date for the app’s general release, but it will have both a free and a paid edition. Subscribers to Microsoft 365 Personal and Family will have access to the premium services.
Microsoft Create is also out
Last but not least, Microsoft also unveiled the new Microsoft Create website, which aims to serve as an informational and inspirational hub for creators. To assist customers in beginning a new project, it pulls together all of the Microsoft 365 products, including Designer, Clipchamp, PowerPoint, and more. Templates, articles, and videos from other people are available in Microsoft Create so users can obtain assistance and inspiration when beginning a new project.
