Exceptional Accuracy and Detail

Earlier text-to-image systems often suffered from a lack of precision, ignoring or misinterpreting specific words or details in the prompts. This shortcoming led to the complex process of “prompt engineering,” where users had to fine-tune text prompts for accurate image generation. DALL·E 3 addresses this by generating images that more closely adhere to the provided text, capturing both nuance and intricate detail.

Integrated with ChatGPT

In a technological leap, DALL·E 3 is natively built on ChatGPT, offering users an interactive and intuitive experience. Now you can consult ChatGPT as a brainstorming partner to discuss and refine your text prompts. ChatGPT then automatically crafts detailed, tailored prompts for DALL·E 3, making the creative process more dynamic and flexible.

Creative Control and Customization

For those who find the generated images nearly perfect but require minor tweaks, DALL·E 3 has you covered. A few simple words to ChatGPT can result in incremental changes to the generated image, giving users an unprecedented level of creative control.

Availability and Rights

DALL·E 3 will become available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise customers starting in early October. Importantly, the images generated are the property of the users, granting them full rights to use, reprint, sell, or merchandise these creations without needing any permission.

A Focus on Ethical and Safe Use

OpenAI continues its commitment to responsible AI by implementing various safety measures in DALL·E 3:

  • Content Limitations: The model will not generate violent, adult, or hateful content.
  • Public Figures and Biases: The system has mitigations to decline requests that specify a public figure by name and improved safeguards against harmful biases.
  • Creative Respect: Requests for images in the style of living artists will be declined, safeguarding the intellectual property of creators.
  • Provenance Classifier: A tool is in development to identify whether an image was created with DALL·E 3. This aims to prevent misuse and better understand how generated images are being used.


DALL·E 3 represents a significant advancement in the field of text-to-image generation technology. With its exceptional attention to detail, seamless integration with ChatGPT, and robust ethical and safety guidelines, DALL·E 3 is set to redefine how we engage with AI in creative and ethical dimensions.
