Crafting the Perfect Image Prompt

The key to generating great images with Bing Creator is crafting detailed, descriptive prompts. The AI takes your words literally, so the prompts should clearly depict the scene, objects, poses, colors, lighting, and more that you want to see.

Some best practices for writing effective prompts include:

  • Being as specific with details as possible

  • Listing out attributes like hair color, clothing items, furniture, etc

  • Using descriptive adjectives and lighting/posing terminology

Prompt Structure Best Practices

Structure your prompts logically, starting with the subject and scene first before describing specific attributes:

  • Subject description (woman, man, etc)
  • Pose and scene setting (standing at desk, sitting on couch)
  • Physical attributes like hair and eye color
  • Clothing and accessory descriptions
  • Other objects in scene (desk items, wall decor, etc)

Example Prompts and Resulting Images

Here are some examples of well-structured prompts and the images they generated in Bing: "African-American brown skinned woman at her desk typing on her gold laptop with long black hair, brown eyes, a pink shirt, gold hoop earrings, and a notebook on her desk" - this generated a beautiful office image matching the description. "African-American woman with long black hair standing in front of her desk packaging up t-shirts in an office. On her desk is a gold laptop, mug, and heat press machine. On the wall are shelves with shirts and a Rincoma embroidery machine." - you can see how adding more details resulted in more objects being added by the AI.

Customizing and Enhancing Generated Images

Bing Image Creator provides additional tools you can use to customize images after generation. For example, you can apply filters, replace the background, crop, auto-generate new ideas with variations on your prompt, and more.

The Microsoft Designer tool accessed through Bing has even more advanced controls for manipulating images like removing background elements and using templates.

Using the Microsoft Designer Tool

When you select one of your generated images in Bing, an option comes up to 'Customize In Microsoft Designer.' This opens an advanced editing suite for image processing. Designer provides AI filters, templates, cropping tools, background removal and blurring, re-generation capabilities, and more. It's a powerful way to refine images after the initial prompt generate process.

Experimenting with Prompts for New Ideas

Don't be afraid to continually experiment with edit your prompts after the initial generation. Changing colors, objects, posing, lighting, and other attributes can produce completely new images full of fresh ideas. Iterating prompts and using Designer to refine is key to creating truly customized, high quality AI generated images with Bing Creator.
