What is the reverse AI filter trend on TikTok?

A TIKTOK trend that sees users post raunchy photos online has gone viral – but it’s not all that it seems.

The new trend is quickly taking over the video-sharing platform and users are eager to join in. Here’s what it entails.

What is the reverse AI filter trend on TikTok?

The new trend refers to the reversal of AI-generated art made by the AI Art filter on the Dream by WOMBO app.

It became popular in September 2022 when TikTok users posted about the use of the filter on their lock screens.

TikTokers often reiterated in their videos that their partner would be angry that their lock screen wasn’t of them, when in fact, it was a photo of them but just put through the funky filter.

During the next few months, users then began to test the waters by posting explicit photos through the filter – knowing they could do so without getting caught or suspended.

After all, while it’s sometimes possible to see what’s been painted over, most of the time all actual detail from the photo have been erased.

In one instance, a TikToker, known as kainenovak posted an AI Art filter nude in a video in early November that received roughly 4.1 million plays and 547,200 likes in four days.

Users quipped that they could see the actual x-rated image through the clever al inspired art.

Why is it trending?

As more users began disguising their explicit images through the al art filter, many began to ponder if the process could be reversed.

For many the pastime even became a game, as users worked together to try and spot the explicit image in the posts.

Fortunately, for those who have shared their raunchy images online, it doesn’t seem like it’s actually possible to reverse an AI art filter on TikTok, reports suggest.

However, that doesn’t mean that putting one of your more explicit images through the art filter is risk-free and users have been warned to exercise caution.

“When you put your image through the filter, you’re uploading it to a server somewhere where it may be hacked,” one tech expert wrote online.

“Users won’t reverse these images, but they may be unsafe anyway.”

Meanwhile, some users have taken a more PG approach to the filter.

In some cases people have converted images with loved one, their favourite song lyrics or even random words.  

And for those who want to hop on the trend, you can do so by downloading Dream by WOMBO from the App store or the Google Play store.
