That’s important to keep in mind because without living breathing people machines would simply be — well, ah … machines. So, what is this new thing called A.I. art, or text to image generation. How can a machine make artwork from written words? Through Machine Learning Models such as Stable Diffusion. In a nutshell, the computer recognizes words and scours the Internet’s millions of pictures and composes a unique piece of art.

Now you can type anything you would like and an image will be produced, but it may look horrible. There is an art to creating stunning and interesting images that are truly unique. Although it is common for upcoming A.I. artist to create artworks in styles that belong to other artist it may be best to be original. Don’t infringe on the copyrights of anyone else. I recommend creating your own style.

#3 Pick is Canva which has been around for quite some time and it is one of the most trusted and used graphic design and photo editing tools for the web, Android and iOS smartphones. Now Canva has joined the A.I. world.

You will need to create a free account on Canva, it is really easy then you can simply log on and go to the “apps” tab and find the text to image app. If you use an email to log-in then you will receive a code each time you sign in – the code is sent to the email address that you used to set up your free Canva account.

You can use the Share button to save each of your images by downloading them in the format of your choice. Downloading to .pdf for print is quick and it is a convenient way to save your A.I. images, but you will need to separate your images manually. After creating and saving your art you can use any program you like to edit them, add text and effects.

A nice thing about Picsart’s image generator you can click to see more versions of your artwork then scroll up and down to view all of your images.

The best way to improve on your A.I. art skills is to learn more about creating descriptive text prompts and negative prompts. There are a lot of positive aspects when using text to image generators. It forces us to think which is exercise for our brains, and we will learn new words and meanings and more. Take some time to learn how to write the best prompts possible, you will be glad you did.

Poorly Written Text Prompt vs a Good Descriptive Text Prompt

When you type in a text prompt you are telling a machine what you want the output to consist of and look like. You can type anything and you will get an image, but it may have a lot of imperfections or it may not look like what you imagined. Descriptive and well thought out prompts can make a huge difference. The image on the left below was created with a badly written text prompt, and the one on the right was produced by inputting a detailed and specific prompt. Prompts can include descriptions, details, lighting, textures, people, ethnicity, characteristics, personality, colors, color modifiers, styles, and occupations. Three things you should include: 1) Subject 2) Description, and 3) Context (the background, mood, atmosphere and the what and where).
