Recently, OpenAI has released a new AI tool, ChatGPT, that allows you to generate any text you can imagine: from marketing copywriting to programming code. ChatGPT is free, although you might need to use a bit of a queue to try it. ChatGPT was released just several days ago, but numerous use cases have already been published. People are building websites and creating apps just by using a code generated by ChatGPT. And that’s when I thought: How can Capture One users benefit from such a text-based AI tool?
