Last month, Microsoft announced that it would integrate its Bing search engine with OpenAI’s DALL∙E to let Edge web browser users generate images using text. While, at first, this feature was only available to a limited number of users, Microsoft confirmed this week that it is now rolling out the new Edge image generator to everyone.
Microsoft Edge’s Image Creator now available for everyone
According to a recent blog post from the company, the Image Creator feature is now available for all Microsoft Edge users on the desktop. This includes Windows, macOS, and Linux versions. For those unfamiliar, Image Creator uses DALL∙E (an artificial intelligence) models to create new images based on text commands.
Microsoft says users can use AI to help them create a “very specific visual for a social post or even a PowerPoint.” To use the new feature, just click on the Image Creator icon in the sidebar of Microsoft Edge and type in what you want to generate. The generated image can be downloaded and used anywhere.
This feature will help you create images that don’t yet exist, powered by the very latest DALL∙E models from our partners at OpenAI, right from the Microsoft Edge sidebar. If you’ve ever found yourself in need of a very specific visual for a social post or even a PowerPoint, Image Creator can help you find exactly what you need.
The announcement comes after Microsoft Edge was also updated with ChatGPT integration. As a result, Bing search results now have answers to what you’re searching for instead of simply showing you links to other websites.
In addition to Image Creator, Microsoft Edge’s April update also adds some other new features. These include a new way to share files and notes between devices, a basic built-in image editor, and enhancements to Efficiency Mode to save even more battery life on laptops.
You can download Microsoft Edge for your computer for free via the Microsoft website.
