Turn life into personalized art with AI. Invigorate boring selfies, pet photos, and vacation pictures by recreating them in different artistic styles. From Van Gogh to pixel art to Chinese paintings, our AI is your personal street artist and can generate custom artistic pieces from across the style spectrum.
For legal purposes, we store cryptographic hashes of generated graphics -- but not the graphics themselves. This allows us to identify graphics created with Hotpot.
Choose a base image. Then choose one or more styles with which you want to reimagine the image.
Enabling "Resemble Base" maximizes the likelihood the output looks like the base image. Disable this option for more artistic results.
For optimal results, please follow these guidelines:
Ensure the base and style images are similar in size and aspect ratio.
Pick style images with rich artistic elements like texture, color palette, and brush strokes. In other words, choose style images with distinctive styles. Otherwise, our AI model has nothing to extract and apply to the base image.
Pick base images like normal pictures. These offer the simplest "canvas" on which our AI can apply a style.
As a startup, we also encourage you to experiment and break these rules. :) Hopefully you'll create fascinating art in unexpected ways.
This Hotpot AI service analyzes a painting or illustration, extracts the style, and "paints" another picture with this style. In more technical terms, we utilize a subfield of machine learning called deep learning to offer arbitrary artistic style transfer. Most image style transfer models are trained on fixed, pre-defined styles. Ours is designed for flexibility and can accommodate styles not encountered during the training phase.
For this service, pictures are not saved without user permission. For storage costs and user privacy, we only retain images for as long as necessary to run our machine learning models, and do not store photos beyond this.
