ChatGPT’s image generation capabilities just got an upgrade. OpenAI just posted on its account on the social network X an update declaring that users of GPT-4 powered ChatGPT can now click on images generated within the chatbot and use a paintbrush style tool to highlight sections of the image they want to adjust or add to.

In a video showing off the capabilities, a user generates images of a dog with a conical party hat atop it.

The user can then be seen clicking the image to expand it and enter a new editor view, where they select a paintbrush icon at the top, brush over portions of the dog’s head, and then type in a new prompt “add bows,” which preserves the original image but generates a new version with red bows appearing in the user-highlighted region.

Several web users noted they had observed the changes pushed live quietly earlier this week and last.

VentureBeat tried out the new feature on a personal account and it worked as described.

Powered by DALL-E 3 and another new update

OpenAI’s image generation feature within ChatGPT is powered by its underlying DALL-E 3 model which was unveiled by the company back in September 2023. The addition of DALL-E 3 directly within ChatGPT greatly expanded the former model’s capabilities for users, and the new addition today again further extends its utility and fine-grained control for users.

VentureBeat users ChatGPT/DALL-E 3 and other AI art generators to create article header images and other artwork for our properties.

OpenAI also tweeted that it has added a new style inspiration feature in its DALL-E 3 GPT, allowing users to select between several pre-set styles such as woodcut, close-up, low angle, artificial lighting and hand-drawn.

The moves come even amid ongoing legal challenges to OpenAI’s models and growing pushback by some artists and web users against AI art generally, especially models like DALL-E 3 that were presumably trained on copyrighted imagery without express permission, consent or compensation.
