Image Generation is the latest technological advancement in the artificial intelligence industry. With it you’ll be able to create original and high-quality images in seconds, and all you need is your imagination and a single sentence. Here and here we have already informed about the technology of text to image generators, but in this article we will show you how to work with it.

How do you write the right text input to create the best AI images?

Generally, a text input for AI Image Generation always has the same structure, In most cases you need three ingredients:


What do you see?

Details and surroundings

What about it?

Style, Artist, Media Type

What does it look like?


“A turtle – swimming underwater, – expressionist painting.”

Generate unique AI images with neuroflash

The ability to generate images from text highlights the potential of artificial intelligence as a resource. This is a great progress achieved thanks to modern technology. That’s why neuroflash now combines the No. 1 German-language text generator with a new function, the text to image generation. This makes neuroflash the first company in the DACH region to offer its customers the opportunity to try out AI image generation for themselves completely free of charge. Scroll down to check out some prompt examples and the awesome pictures that neuroflash created from them in comparison to DALLE-2. 

How can you make money with neuroflash’s AI-generated images and use them for your business? Very simple:

  • Books with little content
  • Covers for books, songs, comics, e-books, …
  • Illustrations for bedtime stories, books, comics…
  • Print-on-demand images or postcards
  • Simple stock images for blogs (e.g. food blogs)
  • NFTs
  • Presentations & Slide Files
  • Images for social media posts, newsletters
  • Inspirations for landing page designs, product designs

Tip: Combine neuroflash with Photoshop or other programs:

  • Use Photoshop and enlarge our images from 72 dpi to 300 dpi with Preserve Details 2.0.
  • In the latest version of Photoshop (Beta) there is a function “Photo Recovery” under “Neural Filters”, which usually improve the appearance denr eyes and other strange facial features.
  • Then do some basic curve and color corrections and brighten the eyes a bit.

Generate AI images in 3 simple and fast steps

1. develop an idea

Let your creativity run wild and think about what kind of image you want to create. However, be aware of the limitations AI still has in image generation.

2. enter your text prompt

Describe the image you want to create in a short and precise sentence. Be specific and detailed in describing the image and use concrete structure and language as we have shown above. Here you will find a helpful guide on how to elicit the best results from an AI image generator.

3. generate your AI image and download it

Finally, you just need to download the AI-generated images that you like the most. You can save them on your computer and use them as you wish. Maybe you need a unique image for your blog post or an image for your product. It’s entirely up to you how you want to use these images.


Here you can find some frequently asked questions about AI-generated images:

1. what are AI-generated images and how are they created?

AI images are images generated using artificial intelligence technology. Basically, the images are created digitally from scratch. All the user has to do is make a text entry describing the desired image. AI algorithms can create original, high-quality images by combining and modifying existing images. Neural networks can be used to create images that mimic the style of a particular artist, or to create images or videos that resemble a particular type of art.

2. are AI-generated images copyright-free?

This question is difficult to answer because copyright law varies from country to country. In general, however, it is safe to say that AI-generated images are not automatically copyrighted. Under U.S. and German copyright law, for example, AI-generated images are technically not subject to copyright protection because they lack human involvement and creativity.

3. what is the basis for AI-generated images?

The artificial intelligence is trained in a neural network before it can successfully convert text input into images. Most companies train machine learning algorithms using real photos that already exist on the Internet.

4. what can I create? What works? Where are the boundaries?

AI-generated images are potentially limitless. You can create all kinds of objects, creatures and living things in different scenes and different styles from photorealistic to paintings. For now, however, the technology still has some limitations:

  • The images produced are socially biased and do not always represent the diversity of society in terms of nationality, skin color, sexuality, gender and religion.
  • There are difficulties in displaying details in complex scenes.
  • Currently, text-to-image generators often fail to produce comprehensible text in the images.
  • There are problems in assigning the correct physical attributes to objects in an image.
  • Text-to-image generators can only be used with English text prompts and do not work accurately with German descriptions.
  • Text-to-image generators are based on a limited database that intentionally excludes certain subject areas like firearms, sexuality, etc., so you can’t generate images in those categories.
  • There are problems with generating faces when you create an image that contains multiple people. The faces look distorted and not human.

5. Can I download the AI-generated images in other dimensions?

You can use an online image converter or photo editing software to resize the AI-generated image after you download it.

6. what can AI-generated images be used for?

AI-generated images can be used in a variety of ways. Some possible applications are:

  • Generation of realistic images for computer graphics applications
  • Artwork creation
  • Development of ideas for landing page designs
  • Creation of original images for blog posts
  • Creation of images for product marketing or advertising
  • Creation of training data for machine learning algorithms

7. why does the text input have to be in english?

Currently, AI image technology only understands English text prompts and input. This will most likely change in the future, but until then you can use free online translator tools like DeepL to translate your prompts.

Object of your imagination

When you imagine what you want to see, remember that concrete things are easier for the AI to represent than abstract words. So if you work with concrete words, you can get more predictable images.

Examples of concrete words: microscope, cell phone, tree, camcorder, ketchup, bird, tractor, bicycle, mule, seagull, spaghetti, cage, ball, peacock, pitchfork, tire, tomato, mousetrap, lantern, axe, beetle, sled, board, bagel, cardboard, fire truck, tiramisu, crayfish, eagle, umbrella, cupcake

Source: OpenAI

Concrete words = All pictures show the concrete thing (a microscope).

Abstract words, on the other hand, lead to more diverse results.

Examples of abstract words: hope, progressive, sacred, adequate, sufficient, reality, fidelity, sentiment, intention, sympathy, agnosticism, controllability, determinate, worthy, point of view, imperative, absurd

Source: OpenAI

Abstract words = different things are shown (balloons, face, floating sword?, clouds, etc.).

Write positive prompts – i.e., describe what should be present, not what is missing.

Problem: “A man without a beard” will result in a bearded man because the AI takes things literally. If something is in the prompt, it is more likely to map it. So write “a clean-shaven man” for pictures with predictably clean-shaven men.

Source: OpenAI

Rationale: The AI was trained on images and caption pairs that almost always mention what is in the image, and almost never what is missing.

Details and surroundings

Your subject can be somewhere, doing something or have a special property. Our turtle may be swimming underwater around some colorful coral. So, a turtle swimming underwater near colorful coral, expressionist painting” gives us the following.

Source: OpenAI

But watch out for problems when you start adding sentences and relationships. The text input: “A turtle following a metal anchor to the bottom of the sea, expressionist painting” gives this:

Source: OpenAI

Ouch, this is clearly not what we were looking for. Establishing the right relationships is a major challenge for AI. Because AI doesn’t always “get” how things are connected. You can now either iterate the description, change the order of the words, repeat elements, or add more objects that you would see at the bottom of the sea and on the anchor. Or you can use the style of the image to set the direction.

Style, Artists, Media Types

We can correct the journey of our turtle by adding artist names and style descriptions that can support the theme of the image. Input: “A turtle following a metal anchor to the bottom of the sea, fantasy, painting by Greg Rutkowski and Alphonse Mucha.”

Source: OpenAI

Notice that the text input now includes the genre “fantasy”, the medium “painting”, and the two artist names “greg rutkowski” and “alphonse much”. The resulting image is much closer to our intended image description and looks more refined overall. Why did that work? Perhaps the term “impressionist painting” used earlier referred to artwork and artists who drew turtles doing things other than chasing anchors.

Interestingly, generated images can become really beautiful when you add more information about the resolution and the rating result. For your convenience, here are a number of styles, artists, and mediums you can try to positively impact your results.
