Why You Should Use AI Images

AI images are images automatically generated by AI, usually from text prompts. You describe the kind of image you want, and the AI generates it for you within seconds.

Using AI images offers many benefits due to the speed, cost-efficiency, and convenience over traditional ways of sourcing images.

Here are some benefits of AI images and why you should start using them, too.

1. AI Images Are Copyright-Free & Unique

Traditional image sourcing is often a hassle due to copyright issues. You can only use copyright-free images or risk getting hit by copyright infringement.

Because AI images are custom-generated, they are copyright-free and unique, safe to be used for your content.*

*Important: Recognizable brands and characters may be protected by copyright or trademarks, so if you plan to use these images, please seek permission from the copyright owner.

SurgeGraph does not own rights and thus cannot grant you permission. This is highly important to make sure you are compliant with legal requirements.

2. AI Images Allow For More Customization

With Content Vision, you have more control over the images generated, ensuring they align perfectly with your message and style. You can describe the image you want, choose the art style, and size (aspect ratio).

3. AI Images Save Time on Browsing

Instead of spending hours scouring the internet for suitable images, Content Vision lets you generate custom images on the spot, saving you precious time. This allows you to publish more content faster and easier.

SurgeGraph’s Content Vision vs Other AI Image Tools

Whether you’re an existing SurgeGraph user or just checking us out, high chances are that you’re currently using some other AI image generation tool.

So why should you ditch what you’re using, and use SurgeGraph’s Content Vision, right?

Here’s why:

1. Content Vision Supports Simple & Short Prompts

With generative AI, the output highly depends on your prompt. If it sucks, then so will the output.

But not everyone are prompts engineers, and not everyone has the resource and time to craft perfect prompts.

Hence, Content Vision makes sure prompting for images simple and easy for you, perfect for any level, beginner or pro.

You only need to input really simple, super short prompts (as short as 2 words), and Content Vision will reprocess it to make sure that the output is exactly as you want it.

2. Content Vision Generates Images That Are Relevant to Your Content

Using third-party AI image generators causes you to get images that are not really relevant to your topic and content.

So, the perks of sticking with an AI image generator from within SurgeGraph is that it has access to your content, understands the context, and thus has a higher chance of generating images that are relevant and fits your content.

3. Generate High CTR Images

In a world where people are scrolling through content faster than ever, just having images won’t cut it anymore – you need images that will entice your audience and grab their attention.

Content Vision is designed to generate eye-catching, scroll-stopping images that will skyrocket your CTR.

To achieve this, Content Vision goes beyond the aesthetics, understanding the nuances of what makes an image click-worthy. From attention-grabbing thumbnails to compelling visuals within your content, every image is designed to captivate your audience and boost your click-through rates.

Limitations & Expectations

While Content Vision can generate impressive images, perfection is not always guaranteed.

Because the technology is pretty new and limited, defects like blurred edges and distortions may happen.

To set your expectations right, here are some limitations of Content Vision you should know:

1. Expect errors with fingers, hands, and complex postures

Images with fingers, hands, and complex postures in them might come out weird and imperfect. For example, the image might be missing or have an extra finger. Additionally, fingers and hands might get misplaced.

2. Images related to humans may have errors at the limbs

Heads-up: if you plan to have humans in your image, don’t be surprised if you get one that looks straight out of a horror movie.

Images with humans might have errors like misplaced, extra, and missing limbs.

3. Embedded text may be inaccurate and distorted

Content Vision is not capable of generating the correct text in images. For example, images of packaging might have distortions in the brand names.
