I’m trying to make some potential logos, but text is always included (and as we know Dalle text tends to be gibberish). As much as I say, “The picture has no text” or “there are no words in the logo” Dalle always seems to want them in there anyway. Does anyone have prompt strategies for excluding text?
I think it’s taking the words “logo” and “icon” to heart, so maybe try without…
This person went through something similar, it seems…
ETA: Although he did use “logo” in the later attempts… I wonder if putting what you want (which is hard because you want the creative ideas) in front of the prompt and logo / icon at the very end…I’m pretty sure stuff at the start of the prompt gets valued more, but I may be wrong…
ETA2: Yeah, looks a little better… I would experiment with word placement…
Just started using this, guess I’m not alone with this issue. It seems like if you ask for something that is a found object like cat or car it’s no problem, but when it’s something more abstract like “economic recession” it always includes some random letters
I used someones suggestion to avoid negative prompting and gave a bit more instruction on what I actually wanted - even though it is abstract. I’m also trying to do it programmatically so having some good prompt ideas would be helpful.
“create a square business logo containing simple colours and shapes inspired by artificial intelligence”
Yeah I would have never thought of that of course I’m not like a computer or anything but I am learning this stuff and have been using it for my own projects and that seems to make sense what you said.
Just adding to the consensus here. So far I’ve found OpenAI incredible, but Dall-E outputting words/text/characters just seems to make it completely unusable IMO? If there’s a reason for it (such as copyright etc), then I guess that’s fair enough. But if not - I’d say it would be good to change this. Is it a bug? Can’t see why it shouldn’t accept exclusions.
I have the same issue all the time. I wish it didn’t ever try to include text–it shouldn’t because it can’t ever do that reliably–and no one even wants it to. We can create word art and text in so many other ways.
For logos, there are a lot of other options out there to check out. Logo maker AIs, go check them out instead.
It seems that Bing gets the most advanced version of Dall-E. I’ve never seen inclusion of text in something like logo when described.
“Simple original geometric shape two color company logo on white background with vector graphics that subtly reflects the company’s development of AI products. electric green and neon purple as primary colors.”
That it can’t write text is due to its training on the semantics of imagery, the human tagging of “pick all images with pictures of a rat”, and the neural vision knowledge that puts those elements together. A prompt, which I know would fail due to this, actually gives cool ideas, synthesizing similar concepts: "A band flyer advertisement, with a few guitar and music graphics. Text to include: “Live Saturday at the Rustic Pub”. “The Rabid Badgers” band. “9-midnight”. “$10 cover, all ages”.
