DALL-E 2 users can now edit real human faces, and they're going wild

The AI art generator DALL-E 2 has become something of a household name in a short space of time, and it continues to roll out game-changing features. It's already stunned us with its ability to create photorealistic images of people who don't exist, and now users can do the same with real people. OpenAI, the makers of the software are now letting people use the platform to edit real faces.

The latest development isn't a new feature, but it's one that OpenAI had removed access to because of the fear of misuse. Until now it's only been allowing users to edit human faces created by the AI itself – i.e., people that don't exist. Now it's removed that restriction, and users are going wild putting their own faces on everything from samurai warriors to wrestlers and more... but mainly samurai warriors and wrestlers. Unsure what DALL-E 2 is or how it works? We'll answer some questions below, but see our article on how to use DALL-E 2 for more details.
