This week Dall-E 3, the text-to-image model developed by OpenAI, was released to ChatGPT Plus users. That means we don’t need to pay for extra subscriptions like Midjourney or LeonardoAI to generate AI art, but we can do it inside ChatGPT!
Generating images with Dall-E 3 is slightly different from other AI tools. Tools like Midjourney force us to learn prompt engineering to get good images, but with Dall-E 3 we don’t need so much prompting to get good images. In fact, we only have to quickly describe what we want and Dall-E 3 will create the prompt for us.
Let’s see what makes Dall-E 3 different from other tools and whether it’s time to cancel your Midjourney subscription.
How to use DALL-E 3 in ChatGPT
There are different ways to get access to Dall-E 3, but the only way to get Dall-E 3 inside ChatGPT is through the ChatGPT Plus subscription. If you’re a ChatGPT Plus subscriber, you should see Dall-E 3 within GPT-4.

First, I’ll tell ChatGPT to create the image of a superhero dog. The prompt is going to be pretty simple.

So Dall-E 3 is doing the prompting for us. Cool isn’t it?
Here are the 4 images I got.
