Rendering Base64 Images Returned by SD API through OpenAI Assistant

Hello, Community!

I’ve been exploring the integration of Stable Diffusion with the OpenAI Assistant using the Function Calling feature. The process involves making an API call to Stable Diffusion, which successfully returns an image in Base64 format. However, I’ve encountered a challenge: I’m unsure how to make the OpenAI Assistant render this Base64 image directly.

Has anyone faced a similar issue or found a workaround for this? Ideally, I’d like the Assistant to display the generated image within its interface, without needing to manually decode and view the Base64 string elsewhere.

Any advice, tips, or code snippets that could guide me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help!


The API doesn’t have any “interface” to render things in.

Nor would there be any good way to have the function return employ code interpreter by a tool return value.

Basically, your return value to the AI should be “image and download link was successfully displayed in user interface”. And then perform that in your code that creates whatever experience the user sees.
