“You can erase more precise areas of an image using Photoshop or a similar tool. Just save the image, with the erased areas transparent, as a PNG – then upload to DALL·E.
DALL·E will interpret the transparent pixels in the uploaded images as editable.”
I tried that, using a PNG file with transparency, although the transparent areas appeared in the editor after import, nothing was created there after pressing generate. Anyone ever tried this and succeed ?
I tried this yesterday, and got a few results.
I began with a 72 dpi jpg in Photoshop. I’m a painter, so I used a pic of one of my paintings. I made sure it was a square image.That way I didn’t need to use the OPENAI crop tool. I set it to 1024 x 1024 px. I removed everything I didn’t want DALL-E to read. In other words, the PSD file had a transparent background. I then saved it as a PNG file.
I uploaded that to the DALL-E and added a few prompts, adjusting them each time.
I then took these images and re-worked them in Photoshop.
As I say, it worked. The interface is clunky, but I’m sure the developers are working to improve it.
This is the end result:
