Best Practices for Bing Image Creator

When using Bing Image Creator you should adhere to these best practices:

Write detailed image descriptions or prompts. Be precise with subject, lighting, color, art style and any other minor details. Bing Image Creator will generate images based on these prompts. If needed, add more details to refine the output.

Use the ‘Explore Ideas’ section for inspiration. Hover over images to see the prompts used for their generation.

Use an original or revised AI-generated image as your final product. AI-generated images are great for streamlining your creative process, but shouldn’t be the end product.
