What is Ideogram.AI?

Ideogram.AI is a relatively new AI generative platform where users can create realistic and consistent images with nothing but a few lines of text. But to take advantage of its diffusion models, one has to set up an account first and type up prompts to use its AI generative prowess. 

What sets Ideogram apart from its rivals is its ability to generate images with typography, meaning you can give it text to show in its images, which can come in handy when designing posters, quotes, book cover art, etc.

But Ideogram can be used for so much more, including concept art, cyberpunk-like scenes, hyper-realistic 3D rendered images, and yes, even human forms.

A few tips to improve your prompts

As you can see from the prompts and their resultant images, the text you enter in the prompt field can vary widely. Some prompts are short, others long; some detailed, others simple, some use references (and even parent images) while others don’t. It all ultimately depends on what you want to see and what the model can understand. Similarly, there are a few dos and don’ts for prompts that you may benefit from generating your own images.

Firstly, use simple keywords that the AI can understand. Do not try to complicate your prompt or the AI won’t be able to parse them. 

Secondly, use as many adjectives as you can to describe the image to the AI. This can include words that focus on the style, the subject, the overall atmosphere, tone, composition, etc. Try not to use words that contradict each other for the same image, such as ‘dark’ and ‘light’ or ‘conceptual’ and ‘realistic’, unless you’re focusing on specific disparate elements within the image itself.

Edit your prompts to mold and shape the image accordingly. You’re not tied to the first image that the AI generates. So play around with the prompts until you get the image you desire.

Lastly, include as many details as you can to make your images interesting. This can include things such as the shape, colors, size, contours, and textures of the different aspects of the image.
