  • Microsoft adds OpenAI’s DALL-E neural network to its Bing AI chatbot.
  • Just like in ChatGPT, you can ask Bing to create an image using word prompts.
  • As a new feature, however, it is still far from perfect.

After integrating GPT-4 into its AI-powered Bing and bringing the technology to Office 365 users, Microsoft takes OpenAI’s DALL-E image creator neural network to the chatbot. Now, you can create image, artwork, or any visual using Bing AI chatbot.

Initially launched in 2021, the 12-billion parameter version of GPT-3 can create images from texts. And, just like how it’s done on ChatGPT, you can ask Bing Image Creator to create any visual using word prompts. 

By typing in a description of an image, providing additional context like location or activity, and choosing an art style, Image Creator will generate an image from your own imagination.

On top of that, you can also add any type of art you want the AI to generate, like impressionism, abstract, surrealism, or realism. 

The feature is now available on Bing’s Creative Mode before being fully integrated into its AI-powered chatbot. Most images come under 1024 × 1024 resolution with options to download, share, and give feedback. 

It’s like your creative copilot. Just type something like “draw an image” or “create an image” as a prompt in chat to get creating a visual for a newsletter to friends or as inspiration for redecorating your living room.

Now, concerns among artists, especially digital players, are coming from every direction. Users on forums like Reddit have been saying that this addition could replace them in their line of work because it could generate complicated artwork with a few clicks away. 

Create image with Bing AI: Far from perfect

Upon our testing, however, the feature doesn’t seem to be ready to hit primetime. 

We’ve tested the bot to generate pictures of potato-shaped houses, and it greeted us with a pop-up message saying, Thanks for your patience. Your images are on the way, but it’s taking longer than expected for a while. We needed to redo the search, then it generated these.

The tool also limits users to only submit one prompt at a time per user, and you have to wait a little longer before submitting another one. There’s also a ‘boost’ option to fasten up the artwork-generating process, but each user only gets 10 Boosts at a time.

While the excitement around its promise has been outstanding, especially since Microsoft propelled the success of ChatGPT to a whole new level, Redmond officials are also working closely to tighten up the image creator’s safety measures to limit harmful and unsafe usages.
