What is DALL-E 2?

First, let's talk about what DALL-E 2 is. DALL-E 2 is a powerful AI tool that allows users to generate original images based on text descriptions. So, for example, if you want to create an image of a dog wearing a top hat, you can simply input that description into DALL-E 2, and it will generate a unique image for you. This is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who wants to add some personal flair to their presentations without relying on generic stock images.

How to start?

Let's walk through the steps of using DALL-E 2 in your next presentation.

Simply visit the OpenAI website and click on the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of the page.

For example, you might input something like "a cat wearing a party hat" or "a dinosaur holding a balloon."

You can continue to input different descriptions and generate as many images as you like.
