The year is 2035. DALL-E 13 has just been released. There are no more Artists left. Mega-corps have built massive distributed factories in the Metaverse, where entire divisions of “Prompt Engineers” toil away in their headsets, finding the right combinations of words to generate AI Art, enjoyed only by the most wealthy and powerful citizens in the Capital…
DALL-E probably(?) won’t be the AI that takes over the world, but it’s already changing how we work...
…you know I might just have a solution
I’ve been seeing these AI images on my twitter feed for the past few weeks
They’re really very good!
Now we don’t have access to the main one, DALL-E, as there’s a waitlist
But there’s another one we can use called Craiyon (it used to be called DALL-E Mini)
It’s not as sophisticated but it’s free and we don’t need the illustrations to be world class, just good enough to add some character to the post

AI Art and text generation is a new and exciting field, which exploded in popularity after the release of GPT-3, the text generation tool by OpenAI, and later DALL-E 2, their image generation tool. With just a few words you can generate text and images that are passable in terms of human standards, and in some cases remarkable. These tools are changing the game in terms of making creativity more accessible to everyone.
When you can create anything, the new bottleneck becomes knowing what it is you want to create, and communicating it effectively. If you don’t know the word for a specific art style or artist, you may never be able to explain effectively to the AI what’s in your head. However if you do your research and see what’s working for others, you can find the perfect prompt to capture the essence of what you’re imagining.
