    If you try a colour pic with it, it bleaches it out.

    (except for the grey British sky, which it decided should be blue)

    Considering the AI was trained on old Singaporean photos, that’s come out amazingly.

    Puddy_Tat meh

    not great on buildings / vehicles, and skin colour can sometimes go a bit odd.

    but 1930s family summer holiday (courtesy of my uncle)


    the woman with glasses and the man next to her (not quite sure if it's shadow or if he had that sort of moustache before hitler made it unfashionable) are my grandparents (as in dad's parents - i never met either of them)

    It clearly has some issues with deciding that some things are grass when they are not - but that is an amazing image because of that - love it
