Generative AI has undergone substantial evolution over the years, transitioning from its initial capability to generate images of merely 32x32 pixels to producing high-resolution images that are often indistinguishable from reality.

This advancement has democratized access to powerful visual creation tools for everyone from professional designers to hobbyists. However, this accessibility has also sparked controversies around the ethical implications of AI-generated content, including copyright infringement, misinformation, and concerns over artistic authenticity.
