Artificial intelligence is becoming more popular, and we see it almost in every aspect of our daily lives, especially during work hours. Most people use the help of AI tools for writing blog posts or creating images. Today, we will give you the top 5 AI art generators that you can use to generate impressive images. You could use these images on the internet for work purposes or do it for fun!


The world of art is constantly evolving, and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in creating art is a prime example of this. AI art generators have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering artists and creators an innovative tool to enhance their creative process. But what exactly are AI art generators, and what are they used for? Let's begin by explaining what they are used for and continue by providing you with the best tools!

Top 5 AI art generators: What are they used for?

AI art generators are computer programs that use artificial intelligence algorithms to create images or artwork. They are designed to mimic the creative process of human artists and allow users to create unique works of art without artistic skills or experience. You can use these tools in different areas, like creating unique artwork for social media or your blog, to create brand and marketing materials, and the list goes on.



DALL-E 2 is the first candidate on our top 5 AI art generators list, the second version of the initial project, DALL-E. Developed by OpenAI, DALL-E 2 uses one of the most advanced technologies of today's AI world and can help you create impressive and realistic images through text-based prompts. It is very easy to use. Once you log in with your OpenAI account, a text box will appear, and write whatever you want the AI tool to generate.

"DALL·E 2 can create original, realistic images and art from a text description. It can combine concepts, attributes, and styles," says OpenAI.

It generates four 1024x1024 variations according to your prompts and lets you choose whichever you want to use. After you click the one you want to use, it gives you four options; Edit, Variations, Save, and Share. Choose whichever applies to your needs. Besides, the images it generates are four times better than its predecessor. The application also saves your previous prompts; you can access them in the side panel on the right side of your screen. If you are new to the AI art generator world, DALL-E 2 is one of the best options for you!



Midjourney has improved its technology significantly. There is an incredible difference between the V4 and V5 versions. The latest update lets you generate realistic images consisting of four variations, all in 1024x1024 size, just like DALL-E 2. It also gives you different options, like upscaling one of the four images.

Compared to other tools in this best AI art generators list, Midjourney has a little more complicated use for beginners, especially if you are unfamiliar with the communication app, Discord. Midjourney has a Discord channel that you must join to use the tool. After joining the channel, you must join one of the "Newbies" rooms and type /imagine before entering your prompt.

The better side of its use is that you can see what other people generate, and a new image appears on your screen almost every second due to its wildly high popularity. However, it might also be distracting as you will see many AI-generated images if you stare at the screen too long. After entering the prompt, you must wait a couple of seconds, sometimes minutes, for the AI tool to generate what you want.

Midjourney allows you to use 50 credits for free, but after you run out of credits, it asks you to pay for a premium subscription, which is $8 per month. It is very affordable, especially if you use it for work purposes and turn your $8 per month into a couple hundred or maybe a couple of thousand.

Dream's most distinct feature is its futuristic-design understanding. You can choose from different templates, but it only generates one image per prompt. Apart from using its website, you can also download its app on your phone and continue generating images on the way. It won the Best Overall App award at Google Play's best apps and games of 2022 event. You need to write a simple text-based prompt for the AI tool to work its magic.

Unfortunately, it has limited free access and asks for a subscription after some point. However, just like Midjourney, it is quite affordable, with $10 per month or $90 per year if you pay at once. You can also get a lifetime subscription with a one-time $170 fee.



Craiyon, also known as DALL-E mini, is an open-source alternative to other AI art generators in the market. Interestingly, it is not connected with OpenAI despite its name. It is totally free to use and has a very easy interface for users to get used to it quickly. It lets you generate unlimited prompts, but it is slower than others.

Besides, Craiyon is also behind other AI art generators regarding quality, but what it concentrates on is different. You don't have unlimited prompt options in other AI tools, but Craiyon will let you enter hundreds of prompts until you find the right image you are looking for.

Stable Diffusion (Stability AI)

Stable Diffusion

One of the best options for Stable Diffusion is that you can use it for free. It is not very hard to use as you can use the website to generate images. Despite being a text-to-image deep learning model, DALL-E 2 would still be considered a little easier to use. You can find Stable Diffusion on different websites, including Stability AI and the Stable Diffusion Web App.

Stable Diffusion might not produce as realistic photos compared to Midjourney; however, it is still trusted by thousands of users. The open-source project launches updates constantly to develop the tool's state and boast higher-possibility output options.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

    1. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:18 pm

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

  11. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
