How to create digital art with Lensa
Lensa app: How to use the image generator to make AI selfies
Lensa is an AI-powered photo-editing app with a large swath of tools, allowing users to remove objects from photos, remove blemishes from selfies, and more. It’s also the AI app everyone is using that you’ve seen all over Twitter and Instagram.
Lensa’s best and most popular feature is its AI selfie generator. With just a few taps, the Lensa app uses AI to generate selfie portraits of yourself — with the results often looking really impressive.
Interested in using Lensa to generate your own AI portraits and jump aboard the AI app trend? Here’s how to get started.
Artificial intelligence is a term thrown around a lot in the tech space, and while it’s not always the easiest thing to understand, it can have some pretty fascinating uses — such as AI image generators with apps like Lensa.
There has been a boom in generative AI in recent months with releases like ChatGPT and Dall-E. ChatGPT, which also recently went viral, is an AI chatbot that has a lot of promise. You can ask it to write poems and stories or use it to answer questions. Dall-E, which is created by OpenAI, the same organization as ChatGPT, is an AI-powered text-to-image generator. You type in some words and it creates an image.
Lensa operates using the open-source image generator called Stable Diffusion. Here’s how to get started.
- Download Lensa AI for iPhone or Android.
- Open the app.
- Click the ‘Photos’ tab.
- You’ll see a yellow button that says ‘Magic Avatars.’
- It’ll warn you that there may be inaccuracies in images, like defects and artifacts, so you have to acknowledge those terms before you continue. Some of these inaccuracies include creating images with multiple heads or limbs. This didn’t happen to me, although I did see some pictures that generated two different eye colors

- After you click “continue,” you’ll be asked to upload 10 to 20 selfies. The app recommends using close-ups, pictures of adults, a variety of backgrounds and facial expressions. It advises users to avoid group shots, kid pictures, covered faces and nude pictures.
- The app says “Photos will be immediately deleted from our servers after the Avatars are ready.”
AI has revolutionized every industry around the globe. Whether it is self-driving cars, smart robots, or chatbots, almost all industries use some form of artificial intelligence to enhance their operations. The same is the case with modern Android apps that are packed with AI tools to automate your tasks.
AI image generators are a category of tools that allow you to create images, illustrations, and art by providing the app with a written description. The smart algorithms behind the apps decode that description and give you results in the form of images.
So, let’s look at some of the prominent Android AI image generators available on Google Play and put them to the test. To make the results comparable, we generated the same three samples with each app using prompts: “Ancient Civilization,” “Old Berlin,” and “Neon City.”
Like all the apps on this list, starryai lets you transform your ideas into art by generating images based on the text you provide. You can create various kinds of art with it without having to draw a single line.
To create your artwork, select Enter a Prompt on the home page, and on the next screen, type the description of the image you want to generate. You can also tap on Add Styles to create the image in a specific style. In addition, at the top of your screen, there is also an option to select the AI you’d like to use, each being suitable for particular purposes.
You also have Advanced Options at the bottom if you want to fine-tune your results even more. Once you’re done, tap on Create to generate your image. It also has a nifty little feature that saves all your work in My Collection so that you can use it later.
As you can see from the results, the first two images are pretty realistic, and the third one seems to be hand drawn and colored, making it rather artistic. Overall, the images are not bad at all and are usable. You can get creative with it and generate some interesting art pieces by tinkering with the settings.
The app works with credits you can purchase or earn by completing short tasks. If you keep completing the tasks, starryai stays free.

2. AI Art
AI Art is a minimal image generator for Android with a simple interface to let you quickly create images. You can apply various styles and, optionally, can enter a sample image to give the app an idea of what you’re looking for.
The app’s home page has all the parameters that you need to produce your image. First, type your description in the Enter Your Prompt section, then select a style, and enter a sample image, if you have one. Once everything is in place, tap on Generate to let the AI do its magic.
The results of this app are more detailed than those of starryai. The building in the first image has more depth, and the “Old Berlin” image is aptly black and white. The third one also fits the “Neon City” description well.
Note that the app has some limitations in the free version. To get an ad-free experience and unlimited art creation, you need to subscribe to the premium version.

3. Photoleap AI Art
Photoleap is free and offers an excellent user interface. The actual image generation process is quite simple, and like other apps, it also lets you add styles to your images.
In addition to AI image generation, the app also provides image editing features for your artwork. The editor allows you to adjust the image with various tweaks, such as brightness, contrast, sharpness, and many more. You can also crop the image to align it with a required canvas or screen size.
To create an artwork, select Create With AI at the top of the home page. Now enter the description for the required artwork and choose a style for it. Once you’re ready, tap on Accept and Generate to complete the process.
The images created with Photoleap are among the best we have had from these apps. The first and third images are pretty artistic, while the second one tries to capture its description nicely. This, combined with the photo editing features, make Photoleap a great choice in this category.
