How do I get creator access to DALL·E 2?

To gain access to OpenAI, there isn't a formal application process. Instead, you'll need to find a way to grab the attention of the right people. It's time to get creative and resourceful!

OpenAI's current participants come from diverse backgrounds and artistic specializations. Being well-known, experienced, or an influencer is not necessarily a requirement.

To increase your chances of being considered, showcasing a previous or ongoing AI creation project, sharing your art publicly, or presenting a clear proposal for using DALL·E 2 in an easy-to-visualize project or experiment could be helpful.

However, some things that are less likely to help include pushing the ethical or content boundaries of DALL·E, proposing ideas involving NFTs, submitting extremely abstract academic proposals, or merely expressing how desperately you want access.

What is the cost of DALL·E 2?

DALL·E 2 is free right now!

But expect that to change: every hint that DALL·E 2 processes costs OpenAI a little bit of money (it's computationally "intensive" in their words), so they'll want to recoup that money.

Is DALL-E 2 open source?


What kind of computer or hardware do I need to run DALL·E 2, and can I download it?

DALL-E is a web application that runs in a browser and the image generation is done on OpenAI's servers. The good news is that you can use DALL·E on any device, but the bad news is that you can't download the code and patch it.

Are there restrictions on the use of DALL·E 2?

Certainly! At present, you may only request prompts from DALL·E 2 up to 50 times within a 23.5 hour window, generating up to 500 images in total. This restriction includes written prompts, modifications, and adjustments that result in six new images created by DALL·E 2.

Unfortunately, there are no other customizable settings available. You cannot alter the image resolution, canvas size, shape, or any other parameters related to the algorithm.

All produced images are 1024 x 1024 pixel squares.

Furthermore, it's essential to follow the content policy rules outlined below.
