Whether you want to generate images for your blog or design some illustrations for your upcoming children’s book, you may have heard about image generators and how they can make life so much easier for you.

Several free and paid image generators are available for people to use. Once you find a compatible image generator, you may wonder where to get started. While it may seem challenging, it is not as tough as you may think.

Here are some of the best tips for beginners to consider when using an image generator.

1. Start from the Basics

Before you start generating exciting images for your next project, the most important thing you must do is to look for online tutorials and step-by-step guides on using your image generator. You can head to the official website of the software that you are using or seek courses on reliable secondary platforms.

From using AI expand image to exploring new ideas, dedicated courses can teach you a lot about becoming able to generate images with compact and meaningful prompts.

2. Take a Simple Start

One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a beginner exploring image generators is to take a challenging start. Although challenging yourself to achieve something is never a bad idea, you do not want to exhaust yourself on the first attempt.

It is always recommended for beginners to use basic text prompts to learn more about how an image generator responds to their commands. It could be a great opportunity for you to experiment and learn how small changes can make a big difference in your generator’s output.

3. Refine Your Prompts

One of the most important things you will instantly realize is that more detailed prompts will get you better results. Instead of “cloudy sky,” try “a dense sky with purple and orange hues in a misty atmosphere.”

Many people using AI generators agree that using adjectives, styles, and specific details can help them get closer outcomes to their vision.  Once you start heading in the right direction, you can refine your prompts based on the output you get.

4. Explore Advanced Features

You will not always be satisfied with the images you create with the help of an image generator. However, using an image generator does not mean that you will not be able to make any changes. You can look for advanced features in the software that provide you with creative authority.

You can explore these features to enhance your creations. Some software may even allow you to combine generated images with your own artwork for unique results.

5. Consider Ethical Guidelines

Ethical guidelines can differ from one software to another. You must read about the licensing and usage rights before you generate images so that there are no problems later on.

While generating these images, make sure that you do not violate any community guidelines by offending a specific group or violating any guidelines mentioned in the terms and conditions.
