Dall-E, Midjourney or Stable Diffusion? This is your guide to the best AI text-to-image generators in 2022.

Whether you like them or not, Artificial Intelligence (AI) image generators have exploded in popularity this year and the technology shows no signs of stopping.

At the start of 2022, there were hardly any AI text-to-image generators available to the public, but with DALL-E finally becoming available in beta in July and Stable Diffusion being released a month later, there are now suddenly an array of AI image generators vying to be the best software on the market.

Just Released: Meet Lexica.art – A Massive Database Of AI-Generated Images 

blank

If you’re one who’s looking for inspiration for your next AI-generated artwork, you should check out this website called Lexica.art. It’s a massive collection of millions of Stable Diffusion images including its text prompts people used to create them. The web app is pretty basic and neat with a simple discord link, a search box, and of course the images.

 

The way it’s described by the developer Sharif Shameem, is a search engine for AI-generated images and prompts. For instance, you can enter “astronaut” in the search box if you’re interested in seeing artworks related to an astronaut. What’s great is you’ll see the exact prompt used to generate the image on the left side. You can copy and remix these text prompts to create even cooler results. According to Sharif, Lexica is serving 100 GB of images per hour and is growing rapidly.

 

Lexica’s search engine is now 100% powered by CLIP. This means your search query will likely have thousands of matching Stable Diffusion images. You can also search by image similarity too.

 

God Mode

You can toggle the Grid Layout mode to quickly view hundreds of images on one page. Click on each photo to see the parameters like the prompt, seed, etc. You can even move the slider to change the size of the image previews. I like this mode better than the List view.

The Future is Here: AI-Generated Art Wins Art Prize – Artists Aren’t Happy

blank

This year, the Colorado State Fair’s annual art competition gave out prizes in all the usual categories: painting, quilting and sculpture. But one entrant, Jason M. Allen of Pueblo West, Colorado, didn’t make his entry with a brush or a lump of clay. He created it with Midjourney, an artificial intelligence program that turns lines of text into hyper-realistic graphics. Mr. Allen’s work, “Théâtre D’opéra Spatial,” took home the blue ribbon in the fair’s contest for emerging digital artists — making it one of the first A.I.-generated pieces to win such a prize, and setting off a fierce backlash from artists who accused him of, essentially, cheating.

 

Reached by phone on Wednesday, Mr. Allen defended his work. He said that he had made clear that his work — which was submitted under the name “Jason M. Allen via Midjourney” — was created using A.I., and that he hadn’t deceived anyone about its origins.

 

“I’m not going to apologize for it,” he said. “I won, and I didn’t break any rules.” A.I.-generated art has been around for years and is here to stay. But tools released this year — with names like DALL-E 2, Midjourney and Stable Diffusion — have made it ultimately possible for rank amateurs to create complex, abstract or photorealistic works simply by typing a few words into a text box.

3D Printed Reefs —

blank

in 2017 RDL designed a series of 3D printed reef units for the WWF Netherlands oyster reef restoration research project in the North Sea. The units were 3D printed in Rotterdam by Boskalis using D-shape technology. 50 units were printed in sizes ranging from 50cm high to 120cm high and will be monitored over the coming years. This will be one of the largest research based projects assessing the effectiveness of the material and technology.
