Why is Dall-E describing images and not creating them?

I’ve been using Dall-E seamlessly for a few days now with the new layout, but today, when I try to get it to create an image, it describes it only and will not create an actual image.

Anyone know what’s going on?

Using ChatGPT Plus?

I haven’t generated any myself today via there, but API is up and running. It might be a case of server load. Might try starting a new thread if you haven’t (in ChatGPT Plus…) Let us know. Hopefully temporary.

Yes, I’m using ChatGPT Plus.

For some reason, if I go into the custom GPTs for Dall-E or ChatGPT that Open AI created, the image creator doesn’t work. But if I search out any of my previous old Chat4 chats and click “new” from there, it will allow me to use Chat4 and Dall-E integrated the way I had been.

Any idea why the custom ones aren’t doing that now?

Yeah, it seems to be down this afternoon. I’ve not heard why yet, but hopefully it will be back soon.

The DALLE3 API is working, so it’s hopefully something minor. It’s still in Beta, so it’s a wild ride for sure.

No problem. I just ran one a few minutes ago, and it came back good!

Hope you stick around. We’ve got a wealth of dalle3 threads here, and we’re always on the lookout for master prompters and artistic types!
