After the explosion in popularity of conversational AI applications, it’s now the turn of image generation: Microsoft Bing now offers a new feature that allows users to quickly generate images by filling in prompts.
This feature is not related to the Bing chatbot, but both rely on technology from OpenAI. Bing Image Creator is based on DALL-E technology.
Currently, Bing Image Creator only supports English prompts. Testing by Blue Point Network found that the generated images are somewhat abstract but still recognizable.
Additionally, by default, each account has 25 points, which Microsoft says can be used to enhance image generation, indicating that this feature will likely be a paid service in the future.
To use this feature, users can provide detailed descriptions using prompts, such as adjectives, nouns, verbs, and styles. This constrains the AI and leads to more accurate image generation.
Bing Image Creator preview is currently free for all users who log in to their Microsoft accounts. However, users may receive some advertising messages.
Microsoft appears to be promoting its Microsoft Rewards rebate program, so users must agree to this function and receive Microsoft’s promotional content when logging in.
Bing Image Creator address: https://cn.bing.com/images/create Each account has 25 points by default and will not be replenished once used up.
Microsoft has taken precautions against harmful content. If users generate content that may be harmful using prompts, Bing will display a prompt and prevent the image from being generated.
Similar to the Bing Chat approach, if users frequently and frequently attempt to generate harmful content, Microsoft may revoke their account permissions.
Regarding points: As mentioned earlier, points may be a feature that Microsoft plans to charge for. Points allow users to generate images more quickly without having to wait.
Once the points are used up, users can still generate content, but it will take longer, which is understandable since the cost behind it is high-end graphics cards.
Since this feature is still in preview, point purchase services are not yet available. However, this feature is expected to be a paid service in the future, and users can recharge points by paying for them.
