Introduction to Using AI Tools Like Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT for Designs

Artificial intelligence (AI) tools like Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT are revolutionizing the way designers and creatives generate ideas and content. With advanced AI systems now able to produce remarkably high-quality images, graphics, and text on command, there is tremendous potential to enhance and streamline creative workflows.

In this blog post, we'll explore how to effectively leverage these emerging AI platforms as a designer or creative professional. We'll look at the key benefits of AI generative design, walk through hands-on examples of using Dall-E 3, and share best practices for harnessing AI tools for commercial use.

Overview of Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT

Dall-E 3 is an AI system created by Anthropic that can generate stunning images simply from text prompts. It builds on its predecessor Dall-E 2, which was limited to certain research groups. Dall-E 3 opened up to the public in 2022 through integration with Microsoft Bing. ChatGPT is an AI chatbot also created by Anthropic. It can carry on natural conversations and generate human-like text on virtually any topic. The premium version allows users to access features like Dall-E image generation.

Benefits of Using AI Tools for Designs

There are several key ways creatives can benefit from AI generative design tools like Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT:

  • Generate fresh ideas - Simply describe what you want and get new creative concepts
  • Accelerate workflows - Quickly create draft images and copy to jumpstart projects
  • Enhance creativity - Combine AI as part of your creative process for new perspectives
  • Save time - Avoid tedious tasks like mockups, graphics and writing first drafts
  • Iteration - Easily tweak and refine AI outputs to achieve your vision
  • Feedback - Get unbiased feedback on ideas earlier in the process

Step-by-Step Guide to Using Dall-E 3 in Microsoft Bing

Let's walk through a hands-on example of using Dall-E 3 to generate AI art. We'll specifically focus on the integration with Microsoft Bing, which currently provides limited free access to test out the technology.

Here are the key steps to using Dall-E 3 in Bing:

Generating a Design Prompt

The first step is coming up with a text prompt that describes the type of image you want Dall-E to generate. Be as descriptive as possible. For example, we may prompt: "Santa Claus on a skateboard wearing gold chains and holding a boombox, vector artwork on transparent background." This provides the AI with details like the subject, action, attributes, and desired art style.

Customizing the Prompt for Best Results

It often takes some refining of your initial prompt to get the best results. You can iteratively tweak the wording and details. Some tips:

  • Try different adjectives and descriptions
  • Specify colors, styles, camera angles
  • Use "vector", "line drawing", or "clipart" for cleaner images
  • Add "hi-res" or the desired dimensions
  • Use "sticker" or "isolated on white background" to simplify editing later

Downloading and Editing the Generated Image

Once you're happy with your Dall-E 3 creation, you can download the image and further edit or refine it as needed. Some options include:

  • Remove background with online tools like remove.bg
  • Edit in Photopea - browser-based photoshop alternative
  • Upscale and sharpen image with AI tools like letsenhance.io
  • Add effects, touch up imperfections, crop and resize as desired
  • Convert to other formats like SVG for easy editing
  • Use commercially with caution and check platform guidelines first

Tips for Using AI Tools for Commercial Designs

If you want to commercially sell or use AI generated designs, there are some key factors to consider:

Following Platform Guidelines

Each platform has its own policies regarding AI content. Be sure to review and follow the latest rules if selling on sites like:

  • Amazon, Etsy, Shopify - Allowed currently but with some restrictions
  • Redbubble, Teepublic - Generally allowed if following other guidelines
  • At minimum, don't directly copy or infringe on existing work
  • Rules are evolving so check back periodically as you create new work

Avoiding Copyright Infringement

While AI can churn out limitless creations, it's trained on vast datasets that may include copyrighted content. To avoid issues:

  • Don't use brands, logos, or famous names without permission
  • Create sufficiently new and original designs rather than duplications
  • Seek inspiration from multiple sources and stock assets you have rights to use
  • Hire a designer to incorporate AI as part of human-led process


AI generative design tools like Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT provide exciting new ways for creatives to enhance their workflows. While still an emerging technology, there is huge potential for designers, artists and creators to leverage AI to generate ideas, accelerate output and reduce tedious production tasks.

By combining human creativity with AI, and using it thoughtfully, responsibly and legally, we can take creativity and production to new levels. But human guidance, artistry and ethics are still essential ingredients.


Q: Can I use AI-generated designs commercially?
A: The commercial use guidelines vary between the different AI platforms. Currently, designs created with Dall-E 3 in ChatGPT can be used commercially. However, Microsoft Bing's Dall-E 3 has restrictions against commercial use.

Q: How much do these AI tools cost?
A: ChatGPT has a paid premium plan that unlocks access to Dall-E 3 for $20/month. Microsoft Bing's Dall-E 3 is currently free to try during its limited preview.

Q: What file types can I download the AI designs as?
A: You can typically download the AI-generated designs as common image file types like JPG, PNG, SVG, etc. Some tools may have additional options like PDF, EPS, DXF.

Q: Can the AI create completely unique designs?
A: The AI creates new images based on the text prompts provided. However, it may sometimes incorporate elements it has learned from its training data. Uniqueness can be maximized through very specific, customized prompts.

Q: How can I edit or refine the generated designs?
A: You can use photo editing tools like Photopea, Canva, GIMP, etc. to refine the design by cropping, changing background, adding text, resizing, etc. Vectorizing tools like Vectorizer.ai can also convert to SVG for editing.
