Generative AI has become increasingly popular in recent months, with various companies developing their own AI tools. OpenAI’s ChatGPT, released last fall, inspired Google, Microsoft, and Meta to create their own AI chatbots – Bard, Bing Chat, and Meta AI. Additionally, Microsoft introduced an AI image generator powered by DALL-E 3, the latest project from OpenAI. This new version offers improved image quality, more accurate prompt processing, and enhanced details within images.
Using the Bing Image Creator is simple and can be done through Bing Chat or directly on the tool’s website. It functions similarly to chatting with an AI chatbot like ChatGPT. Accessing the Bing Image Creator only requires visiting Bing.com, and there is no need for an OpenAI account. You can access the Bing Image Creator through Bing Chat or by going to Bing.com/Create. While we will focus on creating images directly on the Bing Image Creator site, instructions for generating images in Bing Chat can be found in the FAQ section below. Unlike Bing Chat, you do not need Microsoft Edge to access the Bing Image Creator. Simply go to Bing.com/Create, click on Join & Create, log in to your Microsoft account, and access the image generator.
To use the Bing Image Creator, enter a description of the image you want to prompt Bing to create. It is important to be as descriptive as possible to ensure accurate results. After entering your prompt in the text area, click on Create. The generated images will typically include four options for each prompt. It is worth noting that free AI image generators may not always produce lifelike images, so there may be errors in details such as finger positioning or keyboard keys.
Despite these limitations, the Bing Image Creator can still produce impressive results. For example, when prompted to create an image of a dodo bird sitting on a concrete floor in a brightly lit home in the tropics, Bing’s generated images captured the essence of the prompt. Although DALL-E 3 is not trained on many images of dodo birds due to their extinction in the 17th century, the generated images still resemble pelicans and toucans. After reviewing the options, users can choose to download their preferred image.
1. Can I create images using the new Bing Chat?
Yes, there are two ways to use the Bing Image Creator. You can generate images by visiting Bing.com/Create or create images directly from Bing Chat. To create images through Bing Chat, open Microsoft Edge, go to Bing.com, and click on Chat. Simply write your prompt, and Bing Chat will recognize your intent. This feature allows for more interactive conversations and the ability to make adjustments to the generated image.
2. How do you write prompts to create images using AI?
To create successful prompts, it is important to be specific and provide a detailed description of the desired image. Include adjectives, nouns, verbs, and even styles to accurately convey your vision. The prompt should specify whether you want a photo, cartoon, painting, or 3D render, as this will impact the style of the generated image. Following the format of “Adjective + Noun + Verb + Style” is recommended. For example, “Fuzzy creature wearing sunglasses, digital art.” Experimenting with different terms and styles can lead to interesting and unique results.
