This talk will go over how to get what you want from your AI-generated images. Specifically focusing on image generation using text->image for creative projects, we’ll discuss the use of AI platforms like Midjourney, DALL·E 2, and Stable Diffusion, among others. We’ll look at a variety of roles these tools could play during the creative process and how they can be integrated into one’s workflow.

Let’s start by looking at the cultural context of these tools and their recent rise to popularity and controversy, how to set creative intentions when using these tools, deciding on the platform that best suits your project, and finally, tips and ticks for “word-smithing” prompts and truly getting useful image outputs that you want for your creative projects. We’ll wrap up with a quick overview of the future of innovative AI tooling and some explorative examples of what’s next in our collaborations with AI.
