ChatGPT Revolution: Top AI Image Generators of 2023

Jan 20, 2023

The current era of human evolution is marked by significant advancements in technology, specifically in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Recently, we’ve seen the emergence of a plethora of AI tools built to simplify human tasks. The focus of this article is a specific category of AI known as image-based generative AI. The article will provide an overview of this branch of AI and then present a list of the top 5 image-based generative AI applications that you can explore right now. 

What is generative image AI

Generative AI is a subset of artificial intelligence that uses machine learning and neural networks to generate new and original content. This type of AI has the ability to create a wide range of outputs, including artwork, music and written materials, such as screenplays. In this article, we will focus on generative AI that produces original images based on user input. 

The importance of generative AI

Generative AI is an important aspect of future technological progress. Similar to how human labor powered the first industrial revolution, technology, specifically AI, will play a critical role in driving development in the current fourth industrial revolution and the future beyond that. The AI models used in generative AI have the potential to revolutionize various fields, such as research, document creation, and even complex disciplines like negotiating the legal system. However, there are questionable processes that go into such technology, processes that we may need to look into further. 

The best AI image generators for 2023

Fotor AI Image Generator

Fotor, a popular online photo editing platform with a global user base, has recently introduced an in-house AI image generator feature. The tool is user-friendly and requires only text input to generate an image. Fotor's AI text-to-image generator quickly creates realistic images of faces, 3D and anime characters, paintings, and other forms of digital art.

One of the key benefits of Fotor's AI image generator is its accessibility - it is available for free and lets you export the images you generate in high-resolution formats. This makes it a suitable option for users of all skill levels, from beginners to those with more digital content creation experience.

Dall-E 2

This is a utility we’ve covered comprehensively in previous articles. Dall-E 2 is a premiere AI image generator from OpenAI, the team behind GPT-3 and the sensational chatbot, ChatGPT. This is a state-of-the-art AI image generator, and is one of the most advanced of its kind. Dall-E 2 is capable of producing a wide range of digital artwork and illustrations from text inputs. With Dall-E 2, you can generate illustrations, design products, and brainstorm new business ideas simply by inputting text.

One of the standout features of Dall-E 2 is its paintbrush function, which gives you the ability to further enhance your images with a variety of details such as shadows, highlights, colors, and textures.


NightCafe is a highly-regarded AI text-to-image generator known for its extensive range of algorithms and options. It offers two conversion models: Text to Image and Style Transfer. The Text to Image model allows users to input a description text and generates an image of the corresponding scene based on the description. The Style Transfer model, on the other hand, allows users to upload a picture and transform it into the style of famous paintings.

NightCafe operates on a credit system, where users can generate more images by acquiring more credits. You can either earn credits by participating in the community events, or by simply purchasing more when you run low.


Midjourney is another top AI image generator known for its extensive capabilities and speedy image generation. You simply need to input a text prompt and let Midjourney handle the rest. Many artists use Midjourney as a source of inspiration for their work, taking advantage of its image generation capabilities.

Currently, Midjourney is hosted on a Discord server, meaning that in order to generate images with it, you must join the server and use Discord bot commands. However,  getting started with Midjourney is easy and you only need to set aside a few minutes to do it.


This utility was previously known as Dall-E mini. Craiyon was created by a team of scientists from Google and Hugging Face. By simply providing a written description, the tool generates nine unique images based on the input text. This is slightly more impressive than Dall-E’s 4 standard images. 

Craiyon is an exceptional, free AI image generation tool that does not require any registration. You can simply head to the website and type in any keywords you desire, and within a short amount of time, you’ll have a unique AI-generated image based on your prompts.

    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.

  3. 45 RPM said on August 19, 2023 at 6:29 pm

    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.

  8. Marc said on August 21, 2023 at 6:00 pm

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

  9. plusminus_ said on August 21, 2023 at 7:54 pm

    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

    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.
