AI-Generated Imagery is the New Clip Art as Microsoft Adds DALL-E to its Office Suite

Originally published in The Verge, Oct 12, 2022. 

Microsoft is adding AI-generated art to its suite of Office software with a new app named Microsoft Designer.

The app functions the same way as AI text-to-image models like DALL-E and Stable Diffusion, letting users type prompts to “instantly generate a variety of designs with minimal effort.” Microsoft says Designer can be used to create everything from greeting cards and social media posts to illustrations for PowerPoint presentations and logos for businesses.

Essentially, AI-generated imagery looks set to become the new clip art.

The app isn’t ready for a full launch though, and Microsoft is only offering a limited web preview. “We’re inviting people to try it out, give us feedback, and help us make it great,” writes Microsoft vice president Liat Ben-Zur in a blog post. Once it’s ready, Designer will be available as both a free standalone app and a more feature-filled version that will be available to paying Microsoft 365 subscribers.

In addition to launching Designer, Microsoft is also adding an AI text-to-image model to its search engine Bing. Details on how this feature will work are slim, but Microsoft says the new “Image Creator from Microsoft Bing” will help users “bring [their] ideas to life.” In a blog post, Ben-Zur said, “Simply type in a description of something, any additional context like location or activity, and an art style, and Image Creator will make it for you.”

  1. Very informative content, I really like it and I will visit again on this site for more interesting and informative word wipe. I would like to thanks the writer for share your knowledge.

  2. Soon, everything will be automatic and robotic. As of 2023, most AI tools (Chatgpt, ai image generator, etc.) are free. However, I believe they will be paid soon. I even had a dream about elevator that was operated by artificial intelligence.

  3. I have seen from my own experience that the design of the home office directly affects the productivity of our work. In 2020, together with Docutrend, I managed to implement a home office project that I had dreamed of for a long time. Believe me, the results exceeded all my expectations.
