Text-to-image tools: this is how you use them on your smartphone

These are strange times for illustrators, designers and photographers. Tools are rapidly appearing to create images using artificial intelligence. These are pictures that resemble realistic drawings or paintings, for which you as a user only have to fill in a concise description.

The ethical side of this technology is a bit vague. These tools are fed with countless other images, in order to get a new result. But what feeds the artificial intelligences is the work of people who get nothing for it.

Still, images created by artificial intelligence will become more and more common in the coming years. Certainly because of the convenience of these tools and the high quality. You can also work with it yourself. For example, all images in this article were created with text-to-image tools. We explain how you get access and how you use it for each tool.

Google Imagen: not yet suitable for the public

Google has its own tool: Imagen. This text-to-image tool blows all the competition when it comes to pure quality. on this page you will find some examples.

It is not surprising that Google makes such strong images, because if the company is good at anything, it is artificial intelligence.

Imagen is not yet publicly available. Google is afraid that the tool will be misused. Google also states that Imagen is currently being fed a dataset known to include pornographic material, racist language and social stereotypes. So there is a chance that the images that Imagen creates will take over these bad things.

OpenAI’s Dall-E 2: Get access first

Less impressive than Google’s Imagen, but arguably the most popular text-to-image tool at the moment, is Dall-E 2 from OpenAI. Dall-E 2 is so popular that you have to put yourself on the waiting list first. You do that by pressing the website clicking on ‘join waitlist’.

If you get access, you only have to fill in an assignment (a sentence or a few words) and click on ‘Generate’. You can also upload an image at Dall-E. What is special about Dall-E 2 is that you can change parts of an image. For example, you can erase a person’s head in an image you’ve uploaded and have Dall-E 2 come up with a new head.

As soon as you get access, you can give fifty assignments in the first month. You can then do fifteen new assignments every month. If you want to make more images, you have to pay.

Midjourney: slightly chaotic on Discord

Midjourney works a little differently than the rest, because to use this tool you have to join a Discord server.

You go to the website and click on ‘Join the beta’. You will then be sent to Discord where you log in with your account. There you can give 25 assignments for free to make an image. You must then sign up for a membership to continue.

To create an image you go to a ‘bot channel’. There you type ‘/imagine’ and what you want an image of. For example ‘/imagine a realistic android mascot’. Within sixty seconds you will get four images. Note that others can also see this prompt and images, as these channels are public. Midjourney is therefore a somewhat chaotic tool.

Stable Diffusion: beautiful, easy and often broken

Stable Diffusion is easy to use. You go to the website, enter a command and click on ‘generate image’. Stable Diffusion can create very impressive images, but they can take a while to finish. This tool is also regularly overloaded, so that you cannot use it.


TikTok: Very limited, but easy

TikTok also has its own very limited version of this technology. You will find this if you make a film and search for ‘AI Greenscreen’ within ‘effects’. Here you can enter a few words, after which an image is made behind your head.

The quality of this image is very limited, but that may have been done on purpose so as not to get strange results that are not suitable for the young TikTok audience.
