Introducing DALL-E 3 and Its Integration with Bing

Microsoft recently announced an exciting new integration between its Bing search engine and DALL-E 3, the latest AI image generation model from OpenAI. DALL-E 3 represents a major leap forward in AI's ability to generate photorealistic and creative images from text prompts. By integrating DALL-E 3 into Bing, Microsoft has made this powerful technology easily accessible to everyday users.

In this post, we'll take a closer look at what DALL-E 3 is, how it improves upon its predecessor DALL-E 2, and the different ways you can now use Bing to harness the creative power of DALL-E 3 for your own projects and purposes.

What is DALL-E 3?

DALL-E 3 is the third iteration of OpenAI's DALL-E model, which stands for 'DALL-E: Creating Images from Text'. It is a deep learning system that can create realistic images and art from a text description. DALL-E 3 improves upon DALL-E 2 by generating higher resolution, more photorealistic and spatially coherent images.

How DALL-E 3 Improves Upon DALL-E 2

Compared to its predecessor DALL-E 2, DALL-E 3 generates images with up to 512x512 resolution, 4x higher than DALL-E 2's 256x256 images. The images have much more realistic detail that holds up to zooming in. DALL-E 3 also has significantly fewer visual artifacts and distortions. It excels at representing textures, depths, and perspectives accurately. Many describe DALL-E 3 as being on par with or even surpassing other leading AI image models like Midjourney. Overall, its images tend to look incredibly realistic while still maintaining a creative, artful quality.

Using Bing Chat to Get DALL-E 3 to Generate Images

One way to access DALL-E 3 is directly through Bing's chat interface. The chatbot has the latest GPT-4 model integrated, allowing it to understand natural language prompts and automatically generate DALL-E 3 inputs.

Some key tips for using Bing chat to create images:

Crafting Prompts with Keywords Like "Imagine"

When chatting with Bing, use keywords like "imagine" to trigger image generation. For example: "Imagine a shark skateboarding at a skatepark". Bing will understand this as an image prompt and have DALL-E 3 generate results.

Example Prompt and Output

As an example, say we give Bing the prompt: "Imagine a giraffe going to school in a postmodern steampunk setting". This whimsical prompt results in DALL-E 3 generating a series of fun, quirky images showing giraffes in classrooms with steampunk elements.

Going to bing.com/images/create for More Direct Image Generation

In addition to chatting with Bing, you can access DALL-E 3 directly through the bing.com/images/create page. Here you can type prompts and generate images with more customization options.

Some tips for using the direct DALL-E 3 integration:

Typing Prompts Directly

At bing.com/images/create, you can simply type whatever text prompts you want, just like with the chatbot. For example: "A shark skateboarding while manta rays dance to boomboxes".

Viewing and Saving Output Images

You can view generated images at a larger size, and save them by right clicking. As you create images, you use credits which replenish over time. So feel free to experiment liberally!

Tips and Ideas for Using DALL-E 3 Images

Now that you know how to access DALL-E 3 through Bing, what are some ways you could actually put these AI-generated images to use?

Here are a few ideas to spark your creativity:

Jazzing Up Presentations

Drop whimsical DALL-E 3 creations into your next presentation. They make fun title slides, dividers between sections, or just to bring some visual interest.

Adding Whimsy to Classes

Teachers could have students prompt DALL-E 3 to illustrate concepts they're learning. The silly results add an element of fun and surprise.


DALL-E 3 represents a powerful new capability in AI image generation. By integrating it directly into Bing, Microsoft has put this technology at everyday users' fingertips. Whether you're creating presentations, classroom materials, or just want some fun digital art, DALL-E 3 through Bing provides an easy way to turn text prompts into stunning visuals.
