UPDATED 4/12/2023: The Bing chatbot can create images based on your text input description, and in this guide, you will learn how to use the feature on the web, the dedicated Bing Image Creator tool, and Microsoft Edge.

Until now, the Bing Chat AI was only able to provide an answer using only text, as this is the limitation of ChatGPT. However, the new Bing experience now integrates with the DALL-E model from OpenAI that can convert text into images.

DALL-E is a new AI system that can turn simple text keywords into realistic pictures. The system can also re-edit and re-touch photos based on natural language descriptions. The AI was initially introduced in 2021, and the second version became available in 2022 with higher resolution and improved comprehension. Furthermore, the technology can also take an existing image to create variations.

This guide will teach you the different ways to create AI images using the Bing Image Creator feature.
