Glide Updates: Image Generation Column

When making apps in Glide, your app may need to rely a lot on images to tell a visual story but sometimes, particularly if your users are uploading many items themselves, some items don't have images so you get this empty placeholder that is not aesthetically pleasing.

Instead, you can now use an image generation column to generate automatic abstract and moving images.

How it works?

When you add a new column, there's a new computed column called Generate Image and it has two options for the configuration:

The type of shape and then the input.

Usually is best to assign a unique value in our sheet like the row ID.

Now we can see that we've got subtly moving abstract images for each of the items.
