OpenAI releases DALL-E 3: users can create prompts using ChatGPT

OpenAI has announced an upgraded version of its Vincent graph tool DALL-E, which now allows users to create prompts using ChatGPT and includes more security options.

Users simply ask ChatGPT for a prompt, and the chatbot writes a paragraph for DALL-E 3 to follow.

OpenAI says DALL-E 3 also produces higher-quality images that more accurately reflect cues, especially when processing longer cues.

DALL-E 3 will be released first to ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT Enterprise users in October, followed by research labs and their API services in the fall.

OpenAI claims that it put a lot of work into DALL-E 3 to develop strong security measures to prevent the creation of obscene or potentially offensive images.
