DALL·E 2 – OpenAI
DALL·E was first released back in 2021 by Open AI to generate images from Text. That can take simple text descriptions like – “An Astronaut Walking on Grass with a Cat”. And, can turn this into photo-realistic images, that never existed before. It is developed using a neural network on images with their text descriptions. And, with deep learning, it understands all objects and the relationships between them.
Now, in October 2022, Open AI released DALL·E 2 publicly. It is a new AI system that takes technology further with higher resolution and new capabilities like in-painting. DALL·E 2 also can realistically edit and retouch photos. Also, based on a simple description, it can fill or replace a part of the image. Replaced image part will blend with the original image. In DALL·E 2, you can also give an image as input and create variations of it from different angles.

MidJourney is an independent research lab’s artificial intelligence program. That can create images from textual descriptions. Yes, it is quite similar to OpenAI’s DALL·E 2. Although, DALL. E 2 produces much better images than MidJourney. But, if you want artistic images, then MidJournery is quite better. Because images generated through MidJourney looks like a painting.
Instead of a website, MidJourney gives its services through Discord Channel. You can either join MidJourney Discord Server. Or, you can add MidJourney Bot to your Discord Server. MidJourney also can produce variations of generated AI Art. And even you can upscale AI Art to max resolution.
Is MidJourney Free?
Not completely, MidJournery lets you generate 25 AI Images. And, in one command, it does generate 4 images. So basically, you can get around 100 free images. MidJourney also has an active community, that keeps generating beautiful artwork. Although, you can only access all community artworks if you’ve subscribed to the premium plan of it.

If you’re looking for completely free and open-source AI Art Generators, then Stable Diffusion is something you should try. It is deep learning, a text-to-image model. Which was released by the startup StabilityAI in 2022. Primarily, it was designed to generate images through text descriptions. But now Stable Diffusion also can do tasks like inpainting and outpainting. And, can generate image-to-image translations guided by a text prompt.
Stable Diffusion is different from DALL-E and MidJourney. Because, like these services, Stable Diffusion doesn’t run in the cloud. Yes, you can run it and many third-party websites do run Stable Diffusion on their servers. But, if you want to try full-fledged stable diffusion, then you have to run it locally on your computer. Yes, you can create a local server of stable diffusion. You need to first install a few dependencies like Python and Git. After that, by using Stable Diffusion Web UI files, you can run it easily.
Is Stable Diffusion Free?
Yes, Stable Diffusion is completely free. You don’t need to buy any credit or premium subscription plan to use it. And, I have already created a guide on how to Install Stable Diffusion on Windows PC. So, you can check that out.
Okay, so these were the Best Free AI Art Generators that you can try for free. Yes, there are a few more Text-to-Image AI Art Creator available. But, those aren’t as good as these. Personally, I suggest you try DALL·E 2 and MidJournery. If your free credit ends, then you can set up Stable Diffusion on your Computer.
