AI Image Generators: DALL-E & StableDiffusion

Use these two forefront runners to create realistic images and art from descriptions in natural language.


DALL·E 2 is a new AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language.

Lecturers and students can use DALL-E to generate images for their presentations or projects. For more information on usage and copyrights: see

You can write anything in the text box, combining concepts, ideas, attributes and more. Or not at all. You can also use the Surprise me button to have it generate some text for you.

The system will generate a series of images for you, you can mouse over and click on the top right of each image to see what you can do, including to download it.

You can then select one of the images, and click on Variations to have the system generate a series of new images based on your selected original image. You will not lose the original one.

You can continue to repeat the Variations process and dive further down until you find something you need, or have the system morph the images beyond recognition compared to the very first original image.

You can also use the History section to see your previously generated images.

If you’re happy with what you have, you can combine it with the Collections functionality to create groups of images for future use and ease of access.

Frequently asked questions

    • What was the Stable Diffusion model trained on?

      The underlying dataset for Stable Diffusion was the 2b English language label subset of LAION 5b, a general crawl of the internet created by the German charity LAION.

    • What is the copyright for using Stable Diffusion generated images?

      The area of AI-generated images and copyright is complex and will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

    • Can artists opt-in or opt-out to include their work in the training data?

      There was no opt-in or opt-out for the LAION 5b model data. It is intended to be a general representation of the language-image connection of the Internet.

    • Where can I access the Stable Diffusion Online website?

    • What is the copyright on images created through Stable Diffusion Online?

      Images created through Stable Diffusion Online are fully open source, explicitly falling under the CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication.

    • What kinds of GPUs will be able to run Stable Diffusion, and at what settings?

      Most NVidia and AMD GPUs with 6GB or more.

    • What are Diffusion Models?

      Generative models are a class of machine learning models that can generate new data based on training data.
