Turn (Boring) Images into Product Photos and Advertisements Using Generative AI
And a Workout Creator GPT to keep you healthy.
Let’s just jump into it, shall we? I’ve been test-driving this product image and advertisement platform called Rupert AI and I’m thoroughly impressed by the results. So I had to share it here, of course.
Here we go!
Here’s their blurb:
Turn boring images into Product Photos that increase your sales. Create & Pre-test your assets in seconds with deep learning and cognitive science models built with millions of human reactions.
So, how are the results? In short, surprisingly good. I took the following image (also generated through AI) and it magically created 4 alternate backgrounds:
Here are the results:
It even went farther expanding the canvas and adding feet. Let’s give it another go, shall we? Here’s another shot:
And here are the results:
Not too bad! Impressed with the changes of clothes (check out my legs!) and the different backgrounds they chose to insert (or inpaint as it’s called). Let’s try a real product / logo / brand, shall we?
And the results?
The wonderful thing about Rupert is they give you 100 credits to start which is more than enough to get a good taste of what is possible.
Once you have the baseline of images you can then pre-test them for effectiveness using another one of their tools. Just highlight them all and hit “Pre Test” on the top:
You get the idea. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think! This is definitely a bookmark for me and I can see myself giving this a serious, professional test-drive at the right time. Thanks Rupert!
Another GPT I saw this morning was GymStreak, a workout creator to help you build at-home or gym workouts. As someone who doesn’t head to the gym — never, ever, ever — I opt to get my sweat on at home and something like this was definitely of interest to try.
I tried prompting the following:
Create a 50 minute barre workout plan at home.
And it gave me a really good output, very much like the Barre workouts that I’ve had in a IRL studio! The full workout is as-follows:
Warm-Up (5 minutes)
March in Place - 1 minute
Begin by marching in place to increase your heart rate. Lift your knees high and swing your arms.
Arm Circles - 1 minute
Extend your arms out to the sides and make small circles, gradually increasing to larger circles to warm up your shoulders.
Leg Swings - 1 minute each leg
Hold onto your barre or chair for balance. Swing one leg forward and back, then switch legs. This improves dynamic flexibility and warms up your hip flexors and hamstrings.
Main Workout (40 minutes)
Divide this section into four 10-minute blocks, each focusing on different body parts: lower body, upper body, core, and a full-body integration with a barre focus.
Lower Body (10 minutes)
Plié Squats - 2 minutes
Stand with feet wider than hip-width apart, toes pointed out. Bend your knees to lower down, keeping your back straight, then press back up.
Lunges with Barre - 2 minutes each leg
Facing the barre, step one foot back into a lunge. Bend both knees to lower your body down, then press back up.
Leg Lifts - 2 minutes each leg
Stand side on to the barre. Lift one leg out to the side, keeping your body upright. Lower and repeat.
Upper Body (10 minutes)
Arm Lifts with Weights - 2 minutes
Holding your light weights, perform arm lifts to the front and side to target your shoulders.
Bicep Curls - 2 minutes
With weights in hand, curl your arms up towards your shoulders and then lower.
Tricep Dips - 2 minutes
Using a chair, place your hands on the seat and lower your body down and up, focusing on bending at the elbows.
Push-Ups - 2 minutes
Face down, hands slightly wider than shoulder-width, lower your body down and push back up.
Core (10 minutes)
Plank - 2 minutes
Hold a plank position, focusing on keeping your body in a straight line from head to heels.
Russian Twists - 2 minutes
Sit on the mat, lean back slightly, and twist your torso side to side, optionally holding a light weight for added resistance.
Pilates 100 - 2 minutes
Lie on your back, legs in a tabletop position, and pump your arms up and down as you breathe in and out in short bursts.
Full-Body Integration (10 minutes)
Barre Combination Moves - 5 minutes
Combine plié squats with arm lifts, integrating lower and upper body movements.
Balance and Flexibility Work - 5 minutes
Use the barre for balance as you perform leg lifts to the front, side, and back, focusing on form and flexibility.
Cool Down (5 minutes)
Stretch - 5 minutes
Focus on stretching all the major muscle groups you've worked, including hamstrings, quads, calves, back, chest, and arms. Use the barre to assist in deeper stretches for your legs and back.
I think it would be even better if it had linked to YouTube videos to help me understand the precise movements, especially if I was a complete newbie to the routine, but since I have had personal experience I would have no trouble following this and feeling good about the results.
What a great morning of experiments! I hope you find these useful and have a great rest of your Friday and weekend friends!
