ChatGPT can now generate images for you. OpenAI has included DALL-E 3, their most advanced AI image generator, in ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise subscriptions. Paid ChatGPT subscribers can now use DALL-E 3 in the AI chatbot. However, it has yet to be available through OpenAI Labs.
Using a Microsoft account, you can access DALL-E 3 for free through the Bing Image Creator.
How to create AI images using DALL-E 3 in ChatGPT
To use DALL-E 3 in ChatGPT, you’ll need a Plus or Enterprise subscription. DALL-E 3 is exclusively available in GPT-4. The A Plus subscription is $20 per month, but the cost for the Enterprise tier depends on the organization’s size.

1. Log in to ChatGPT
To log in, visit ChatGPT’s website at Chat.OpenAI.com. To sign up for ChatGPT Plus, choose “Sign up” and provide your account details.
2. Switch to GPT-4
To switch to GPT-4, click the dropdown menu and choose GPT-4 from the options.
GPT-4 has new features like DALL-E 3, Bing browsing, improved data analysis, and better overall performance.
3. Prompt GPT-4 to create an image
After selecting GPT-4, provide a prompt for the image you want to see. Feel free to be as imaginative and adventurous as you like; specify what elements you like the image to have clearly.
For instance, I’m describing a picture of a blue alligator piloting a spaceship with planet Earth in the background.
My prompt is very detailed, including the color of the alligator, the desired background, and the photo style. You can choose any style, such as painting, watercolor, 3D render, or one-line drawing.
Get your image by downloading or regenerating it.
To view and download the image, click on it.
To regenerate an image with the same prompt using DALL-E 3, simply click the refresh button below the image.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a ChatGPT Plus subscription to access DALL-E 3?

Is there a limit to DALL-E 3?
In ChatGPT Plus, both DALL-E 3 and GPT-4 have a limit of 40 messages within three hours.
