Have you heard of DALL-E? No it isn’t a spoof of Pixar’s WALL-E. Well, if you think of text to speech (take the annoying TikTok voiceover lady who reads your captions aloud for example), there is now text to paint…
Yeah, you can literally write the words “woman, beach, palm tree” and an AI will illustrate, paint or graphic design an image based around these words. So, how good are these images? Well, until recently, images produced through this approach remained somewhat lacking in coherence or detail, although they possessed an undeniable surrealist charm that captured the attention of many serious artists. That’s where DALL-E comes in.
