DALL-E 3 Announced as Part of ChatGPT Plus OpenAI recently announced the launch of DALL-E 3, the latest iteration of their AI image generator. DALL-E 3 will be included as part of the ChatGPT Plus subscription at no extra cost. https://www.youtube.com/watch?vsqQrN0iZBs0&ab_channelOpenAI This has led many existing Midjourney users to consider canceling their subscriptions in favor of the new DALL-E 3 access through ChatGPT Plus. Midjourney requires a separate subscription, while DALL-E 3 will be bundled with ChatGPT Plus. DALL-E 3 Shows Major Improvements According to the announcement and sample images, DALL-E 3 represents a significant improvement over previous versions. It can generate images from conversational prompts and accurately portray text. Early tests show it outperforms Midjourney in some areas like text rendering. DALL-E 3 also allows easy refinement of images through natural language by editing and providing feedback. The streamlined process reduces the need for complex prompt engineering required by other AI image generators. Access Coming Soon for Paying Users OpenAI states that DALL-E 3 will be available in October for ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise customers. This means easy access for ChatGPT Plus users who were already paying the $20 monthly subscription fee. The bundling with ChatGPT Plus gives DALL-E 3 a leg up over other AI image options. Midjourney costs a minimum of $10 per month for limited generations. Stable Diffusion is free but requires more technical skill to use. Midjourney Users Face Tough Choice For existing Midjourney subscribers, DALL-E 3 integration with ChatGPT Plus presents an attractive alternative. The improvements and conversational interface address many issues users had with Midjourney's functionality. Whether the hype lives up to real-world performance remains to be seen. But ChatGPT Plus subscribers will soon get to test DALL-E 3 themselves and decide if it's worth canceling Midjourney. Here is an additional section about user reactions: Users React to DALL-E 3 News The DALL-E 3 announcement prompted strong reactions from current Midjourney users on social media. Many expressed enthusiasm about gaining access through their ChatGPT Plus subscription. Some users indicated they already cancelled their Midjourney subscription in anticipation of DALL-E 3. One commenter on Reddit wrote: "This is good because I can then cancel my subscription to Midjourney." However, other Midjourney users wanted to see real-world examples before making a decision. As one Twitter user asked: "Is it really better than Midjourney though? Need to see them side by side." Ultimately users seem eager to test DALL-E 3 themselves. The integration with ChatGPT Plus means they can easily switch if DALL-E 3 proves superior. If not, reverting to Midjourney remains an option.
