AI Image Generators

Bing Image Creator with prompt: A field of poppies with a cloudy sky painted in the style of Van Gogh

AI image generators are trained on a large quantity of training data -- images that include human-generated labels over parts of each image. This process continues with additional filtering to ensure better representation and to weed out inappropriate images. Finally, through machine learning, the program learns to identify images without the need for labels.

How to use Bing Image Creator: 

  • You must have a free Microsoft account
  • Learn to be very specific about what you want to see generated
  • Edit your text prompts to get the image you want

Note that most AI image generators are trained to not provide graphic or violent images and most will not create images containing famous people.
