Text-based AI like ChatGPT and Google’s Bard might be all the talk right now, but image-generating AI has been improving silently too. Despite their rather obvious struggles, image generator AIs still have great usage now, and have a very bright future. Image AI works through a text prompt and turn it into an image matching the text prompt to the best of its ability.
Following the release of Bing’s Image Creator, we thought we would look at some other AI image creators that can help you create some spectacular art of your own.
Probably the OG of image generation, DALL-E 2 is the latest iteration of DALL-E, which was first released in 2021 by OpenAI.
DALL-E 2 uses a version of GPT-3 modified to generate images so, when using this, you know that you are using the best possible AI out there that can generate images for you as accurately as possible.
Midjourney is built on Discord and thus, has a great focus on communities when it comes to generating images. This means that you will get to see images of other creators alongside yours.
The prompt gives you four different results thus, ensuring that you get to choose the prompt that best matches what you had in mind.
However, it is very expensive once you sign up and you need a Discord account to use it.
Developed by StabilityAI, Stable Diffusion is a great AI image generator for those of you who want to create your digital art but also have the opportunity to improve on the coding of the AI.
Yes, Stable Diffusion is open source code, meaning that users can, and have already began, improving on and building upon the original code. This means that you can get exciting new additions on Stable Diffusion than you would on other AI image generators.
StarryAI is an easy-to-use image generator which is available for use in a credit-based system. You get 5 credits a day but can get 5 more if you watch ads, with one credit getting you four images of a single prompt.
StarryAI can render your images in a wide variety of colours, styles, genres and can range them from watercolour to cartoons to photorealism.
StarryAI can also imitate the work of famous artists, though as with its counterparts, it struggles with recreating human limbs.
Image generating AIs might not be perfect now, but they no doubt are producing some very impressive results and they will only get better from here.
