I wanted to create a master thread for all DALLE3 tricks and tips…
Try to limit side-discussions, so we can make this a valuable repository of tips and tricks for DALLE3 API and ChatGPT Plus (or other versions…)
Basic DALLE3 Prompt Tips
- Be Specific and Detailed: The more specific your prompt, the better the image quality. Include details like the setting, objects, colors, mood, and any specific elements you want in the image.
- Mood and Atmosphere: Describe the mood or atmosphere you want to convey. Words like “serene,” “chaotic,” “mystical,” or “futuristic” can guide the AI in setting the right tone.
- Use Descriptive Adjectives: Adjectives help in refining the image. For example, instead of saying “a dog,” say “a fluffy, small, brown dog.”
- Consider Perspective and Composition: Mention if you want a close-up, a wide shot, a bird’s-eye view, or a specific angle. This helps in framing the scene correctly.
- Specify Lighting and Time of Day: Lighting can dramatically change the mood of an image. Specify if it’s day or night, sunny or cloudy, or if there’s a specific light source like candlelight or neon lights.
- Incorporate Action or Movement: If you want a dynamic image, describe actions or movements. For instance, “a cat jumping over a fence” is more dynamic than just “a cat.”
- Avoid Overloading the Prompt: While details are good, too many can confuse the AI. Try to strike a balance between being descriptive and being concise.
- Use Analogies or Comparisons: Sometimes it helps to compare what you want with something well-known, like “in the style of Van Gogh” or “resembling a scene from a fantasy novel.”
- Specify Desired Styles or Themes: If you have a particular artistic style or theme in mind, mention it. For example, “cyberpunk,” “art deco,” or “minimalist.”
- Iterative Approach: Sometimes, you may not get the perfect image on the first try. Use the results to refine your prompt and try again.
Going along with more description is better, I’ve noticed that if you ask for a scene and don’t mention number of people, it will try to fill it with hundreds of people (or more than needed usually)… So, ask for a specific number of people … be it two people or three people - and give details…
