What is DALL-E?

DALL-E is an AI model developed by OpenAI that generates images from textual descriptions. It's designed to understand a text prompt and create a corresponding image that accurately represents the description. DALL-E has been used to generate a wide range of images, from realistic scenes to entirely imaginative and fantastical creations. It's a powerful tool for artists, designers, and anyone interested in the intersection of language and visuals.

What is DALL-E 3?

DALL-E 3 is the latest DALL-E that has just been introduced in 2023. It is a significant improvement over its brother, DALL-E 2, and is capable of generating images that are more realistic, detailed, and diverse.

DALL-E 3 is trained on a massive dataset of text and images, which allows it to understand the relationship between language and visual concepts. This enables it to generate images that are not only realistic, but also consistent with the text description provided.

Using DALL-E 3 with CHATGPT Plus for $20 per month

Start creating with DALL-E

If you have a ChatGPT Plus account, you can access DALL-E 3 through the ChatGPT app. To do this, open the ChatGPT app and click on the GPT-4 tab at the top of the screen. In the dropdown menu that pops up, select Dall-E 3 (Beta).

And then, you can start the conversation with a prompt for DALL-E 3 to create a creative picture for you. DALL-E 3 can generate high-quality images in many different artistic styles. After generating a picture for you, DALL-E 3 still lets you make improvements or changes to the picture with just text descriptions.

DALL-E 3 is really an excellent AI image generator everyone should know about. Now, let’s begin generating a beautiful picture with DALL-E 3 with this prompt:

Create an action-packed comic book scene where a superhero is flying through a city skyline, dodging laser beams. The style should be reminiscent of vintage comic books, complete with bold colors and dynamic lines

DALL-E 3 will provide 2 images and there will be a short description of each image beside or below these images.

The first image depicts a superhero flying through a city skyline, avoiding laser beams. The style and colors are similar to classic comic books.

The second image portrays a superhero of Asian descent navigating through the city, with the vibrant backdrop of a setting sun. Laser beams are seen crisscrossing the scene, emphasizing the action.

Also, you can download the image by clicking on the download button on the upper left corner of the picture.

Image Transformation

If you want to make a change to the picture using DALL-E 3, you don't need to give a new prompt again. Just type what changes you want, like making it bigger or changing its look. DALL-E 3 will do the rest and show you the updated picture.

Change the details

If you want to change the scene from sunset to night and replace the sun by the moon in the second picture, you can type:

I want to change the scene to night scene, replace the sun by the moon

And this is what you will get from the original prompt and night scene, with the moon

Size information - Parameter

You want to know the ratio of the images to determine if they are suitable for your needs. You can ask: “What is the size of the image?”

Then you want to change the size, it really easy, you just need to type:

I want to change it to 1200×630 pixels

Following your original prompt and the addition, DALL-E 3 will generate the picture that fits with your asking.

1200×630 pixels image

If you want to set the image size from the start and avoid resizing later, use a parameter with DALL-E 3. For instance, use —ar 7:4 for a wide image and —ar 1:1 for a square image.

With the same prompt and parameter, this is the image DALL-E 3 will generate for you.

Create an action-packed comic book scene where a superhero is flying through a city skyline, dodging laser beams. The style should be reminiscent of vintage comic books, complete with bold colors and dynamic lines --ar 7:4

Style Changing

If you want to change the style of the image from the comic style to the realistic style, you should go and tell DALL-E 3:

Please change to realistic style 

And this is what you will get:

The realistic style image

Adding Texts

One more thing, if you want to add the text to the image to make it look like a poster, just go ahead, DALL-E 3 can do it all:

As you can see, the text was added perfectly to the poster. DALL-E 3 has stepped one step beyond the boundaries of a normal image generator.

Consistent Face and Seed Number

You can easily create the same character but a different background with DALL-E 3. For example, you can generate these pictures with just two steps

Step 1

Step 2

For more information and deeper insight, please check out here.

If you only want to change one small thing in your picture, DALL-E 3 now lets you use SEED numbers. Here's how to use it with this prompt:

Please create a picture for me about a dog with black fur wearing a suit, standing in the restaurant as a manager

This is the original image for the seed: 1643264111

If you want to keep most of the image the same but just change the dog's fur color, you can add the photo's seed to the end of the whole prompt like this:

Please create a picture for me about a dog with white fur wearing a suit, standing in the restaurant as a manager, seed [1643264111]

This is a similar image that DALL-E 3 will generate for you

ONE THING TO NOTE: Because DALL-E 3 is still under development and this SEED number function is not yet complete, sometimes DALL-E 3 will generate a different image with the seed you gave it.

Using DALL-E 3 for free with Microsoft Bing

If you'd like to use DALL-E 3 without paying for ChatGPT, try it on Microsoft Bing for free. To use DALL-E 3 on Microsoft, simply chat with Microsoft Bing and start your message with "Generate an image about" or "Create an image".

With a simple prompt below, you will have a cute image from DALL-E 3.

Create an image about a cat dancing in the pink dress and with a cute headband on her head

In the free version, you can use many features of DALL-E 3 from ChatGPT, but there are some limitations. You might wait longer, some functions won't work as well like the text might not be right, you can't change the image size, and you get only 30 requests per conversation.

What Makes DALL-E 3 Special?

DALL-E 3 stands out for its advanced capabilities in generating images. It's not just an upgrade, it's a game-changer that sets new standards at the intersection of technology and creativity. There are a few things that DALL-E 3 can do perfectly but others can’t:

Generate Readable Text

DALL-E 3 can generate readable text in images, such as book covers, posters, logos, and signs. This is a challenging task for other tools, as they often produce random or nonsensical text in images. Let’s generate with the same prompt and see what differences between DALL-E 3 and another AI image generator:

Create an image of a cute puppy sitting next to a bowl of dog food, with the text 'Happy Meal Time' displayed above it.

For Learning Purposes

You can use DALL-E 3 to learn about different topics, such as history, science, culture, or art. For example, if you want to know more about the Solar System, you can ask DALL-E 3 to create detailed graphic art of solar systems.

Understanding complex and detailed prompts

Moreover, DALL-E 3 can now process very complex prompts and generate an image correctly based on that prompt. To learn more about this function, let’s generate this prompt:

Imagine a surreal painting that depicts a serene, otherworldly landscape during sunset. The sky is a gradient of pastel colors, transitioning from soft pink to lavender to twilight blue. Floating islands with intricate, fractal-like trees hover in the sky, casting long shadows on the clouds below. On one of these islands, there's an ancient, ornate temple made of crystal and gold, glowing softly in the fading light. A waterfall of liquid silver flows from the island, turning into a river of stars as it reaches the ground. In the foreground, a majestic dragon with iridescent scales and feathered wings is perched, gazing at a mysterious, glowing orb that hovers above its claw. The dragon's eyes reflect the colors of the sky, and it looks both wise and curious. Add a touch of whimsy by including floating lanterns and ethereal, translucent creatures fluttering around.

The image generated by DALL-E 3

The picture made by DALL-E 3 captures many details from the prompt like the color of the sky, the floating island, and the softly glowing crystal and gold temple. Not all AI image makers are this detailed, making it a big advantage for DALL-E 3

Here is an image generated by another AI image generator and you can clearly see the differences between these two images

[Any more details you want in the thumbnails]

For example, you want to create a thumbnail for “AI Art”, with the theme that an AI painter and a human painter working together to create art and you don’t want to use the color red. This is the prompt for DALL-E 3 you will get from ChatGPT:

1. Foundation:
Using the Core Elements:

Attention-Grabbing: The idea of AI and human collaboration is unique. So, we can use imagery that shows a robot hand and a human hand holding a paintbrush together.
Relatability: Highlight the collaboration between AI and human. This bridges technology and human creativity.
Vibrant Colors: Since red is to be avoided, we can use vibrant shades of blue, which is often associated with technology, contrasted with warm earthy tones for the human element.
Simplicity: A clean background, maybe a canvas, with the two hands as the primary focus.
Emotional Triggers: Emphasize the unity and collaboration between machine and man.
Timeliness and Relevance: AI's involvement in various fields is currently trending. Showing collaboration in art can be seen as very modern.
Text Overlay: "AI & Artist: A Perfect Blend"
2. Strategy Formation:

Tree-of-Thought (ToT):

Main Focus: Robot and Human hands together with a paintbrush.
Secondary Focus: A canvas with a work in progress.
Text Overlay: "AI & Artist: A Perfect Blend"
Background: Clean and light, maybe off-white or light gray.
Chain-of-Thought (CoT):

Viewer's eyes first land on the hands holding the paintbrush.
They then notice the canvas in the background.
Finally, they read the text, which sums up the imagery.
3. Thumbnail Attributes:

Resonate with Viewer: The image of collaboration drives home the message of unity.
Stand Out: The contrasting colors and unique imagery make it distinct.
Amplify Core Message: The blend of technology and human creativity.
Intriguing & Relevant: The collaboration in art is both intriguing and relevant in today's context.
Design Mockup Description:

The center of the thumbnail features a robot's metallic hand and a human's flesh-toned hand holding a paintbrush together.
Behind these hands, there's a canvas showing an art piece being painted, giving viewers an idea of a work in progress.
The background is a light gray or off-white color to keep it simple and not detract from the main focus.
The text, "AI & Artist: A Perfect Blend", is placed either at the bottom or top in a bold, readable font, colored in a shade of blue.

Here is the result you will get:

You can use this prompt with ChatGPT to make prompts to your specific needs. This method is very convenient and saves users a lot of time. However, there might be some small errors in adding text so please check the image carefully.
