I think it was groundbreaking visually or bringing in new form of play, but was it really any fun? i recall the slow movement made me extremely annoyed.

Back when I was regularly making labels for repro carts and custom covers, I would painstakingly remove text and stuff form images. Now you just select something with the lasso tool, and type "remove text" or whatever and click a button and it's done for you.

I mean, sure, this kind of tech is nothing new. There's been apps that have done AI image generation for a while now. That's why it's no surprise that Photoshop has integrated it. On one hand it's really awesome that some things that use to be tedious to do in Photoshop can now be done with great results in a few mouse clicks (with maybe some touch ups afterward). But I can't help but feel like someone somewhere is cursing this AI tech. What use to take school or at least many hours to be proficient, some unskilled worker can now do in a fraction of the time.

I'm just over here building a spreadsheet of obscure forum content that gets traffic years after it's last been updated :)

If it helps with the database size, I would say nuke this thread and we can start a new one.

If I can't get it down low enough in the near term, I'll consider that.
