Microsoft launched the enhanced Dall-E 3.0 image creation function for its Bing AI users at the weekend. An overwhelming response from users apparently resulted in a slower performance than initially anticipated, but Microsoft is planning to bolster their system with an influx of additional GPUs, enhancing the processing power. It’s well worth trying out.
To use the Bing AI Image Creator, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Bing Image Creator page
- Click on the “Join & Create” button
- Sign in with your Microsoft account; if you have already logged in to the Edge browser, you will be auto-logged in
- Enter a prompt in the text box. You can refer to this older article for tips on how to write a good prompt for DALL-E;
- Click on the “Create” button to generate an image.
I just used it to create a placeholder image on a newsletter I was writing. I long ago learned to use placeholder images which would be acceptable on the final document (even if they weren’t the image I finally wanted to use), in case the document was released by accident. The image created here was so good, I debated whether to wait for the image I’d ordered.
Be creative with your prompts when testing out the system. It allows us to let our imagination run riot!
(This is the image I created, by the way: “two middle aged people discussing business on a stand at a trade fair”)
