Followr uses DALL·E 3 as its image creation engine. There is no correct way to create prompts for image generation. Followr understands people's natural language without having to make complex prompts. You can be as specific as you want or just write a single word.

The languages accepted for the prompts are the same ones that are supported by Followr at the playground section. If you don't find yours, just let us know so we can add it.

You can use the concept of strangeness in the prompt to ask Followr for something unusual, for example: "An elephant with high levels of strangeness". The result may give you something like this:

Followr Image creation

Remember that you can not only create square images. These are the three types of available formats:

  • 1024x1024 (square)

  • 1792x1024 (landscape)

  • 1024x1792 (portrait)

Asking Followr to generate images with a specific word or phrase can be very useful; however, keep in mind that text creation is not its greatest strength, and it may occasionally generate text inaccurately, especially with proper nouns.

The same can happen when asking for images that show the faces of human beings. It shouldn't surprise you to see unusual distortions and strange faces in the images.

DALL·E 3 doesn't create images of real people, so when asking it to create an image of a particular person, it will create a fictitious image created by the AI.
