AI research company, OpenAI has announced that DALL·E, an AI system that creates realistic images and art from a description in natural language, is now available in beta. 

This comes just days after OpenAI founder, Sam Altman, tweeted to make DALL.E accesible to 1 million users.

OpenAI is initiating the process to invite people from their waitlist to give access. As a part of this initiative, every user will get 50 free credits during the first month of their use and 15 free credits every subsequent month. Additionally, users can buy credits on top of the freely available monthly credits for USD 15 to get 115 credit increments in the first phase of beta.


Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.

Each credit can be used for one original DALL·E prompt generation  or an edit or variation prompt. DALL·E generates four images for every natural language prompt and three images for edit and variation prompt.

Now, users will be able to use images created with DALL.E for commercial purposes like  illustrations for children’s books, art for newsletters, concept art and characters for games, mood boards for design consulting and storyboards for movies. The usage rights include the right to reprint, sell, and merchandise.

Keeping accessibility in mind, OpenAI is providing an option for artists who need financial assistance to apply for subsidised access. 

OpenAI has taken necessary steps in collaboration with researchers, artists and developers to curb misuse, reduce bias and prevent harmful images.
