Art is evolving, and you will be happy to know that in this modern era, artificial intelligence plays an important role in this development. In this article, we will discuss how to create your own AI art using Azure OpenAI Service.
Azure OpenAI is part of Microsoft’s Azure, which is a suite of cloud services that incorporate some of the latest language models in the industry. These templates include the likes of GPT-3, Codex, Embeddings, GPT-4, and ChatGPT (gpt-35-turbo). Each model brings a unique set of capabilities to the table, such as content generation, abstraction, and natural language for translating code.
These services are accessed through REST APIs, the Python SDK, or a web-based interface in Azure OpenAI Studio. But what if you want to improve your AI-driven art? Enter DALL-E.
The good news is that the Azure OpenAI Service also provides access to the image creation service, DALL-E. However, access is granted uniquely across the app. Whether you are a beginner or an existing Azure OpenAI customer, the first step is to apply for access to DALL-E. The application form can be found at the given URL.
Next, you will need to create an Azure OpenAI resource. This resource must be set up specifically in the US East region. The Resource Deployment Guide provides more information about this process.
Before you start creating AI art
Microsoft explains more about what you need to do before you can start creating your unique AI artwork.
- Azure Subscription – Create a subscription for free.
- Access to DALL-E has been granted on the required Azure subscription. Currently, access to this service is granted by app only. You can apply for access to Azure OpenAI by completing the form at https://aka.ms/oai/access. Existing Azure OpenAI customers need to re-enter the form to access DALL-E. Open an issue in this repo to contact us if you have a problem.
- Azure OpenAI resource built in the US East region. For more information on model deployment, see the Resource Deployment Guide.
Create AI art with Azure OpenAI Studio
If you are wondering how to create AI art using Azure OpenAI Service, just follow these steps:
- sign in: Go to Azure OpenAI Studio and sign in with your OpenAI resource credentials.
- Choose your resources: While signed in or after signing in, select Azure Directory, Azure Subscription, and Azure OpenAI Resource.
- Select DALL E 2 Playground: From the Azure OpenAI Studio landing page, choose DALL E 2 Playground. This area is where the magic happens – creating images through APIs.
To create your AI artwork, type your image prompt in the text box and hit create. In no time, the AI-generated image will materialize on the screen.
Azure OpenAI values security and therefore has included a content moderation filter in the image creation APIs. It ensures that there is no image created to promote malicious content. A step-by-step guide to content filtering is provided for more information.
To help you along the way, Python and cURL code samples are available in the DALL-E 2 playground. You can use these pre-packaged samples depending on your settings to write an application that accomplishes the same task.
I visit OpenAI
Once you’ve created your AI art, and if you want to remove OpenAI resources, Azure OpenAI Service has a straightforward process. You can choose to delete the resource or the entire resource group. Just remember that deleting a resource group will also remove any other resources associated with it.
In conclusion, creating AI art with the Azure OpenAI Service is not only possible, but made remarkably simple. The service combines the latest technology with an intuitive design, giving users a powerful yet manageable tool for creating works of art.
