The Bing Image Creator function will allow you to create images immediately in a search engine or Microsoft browser.
Images can be generated by select Bing desktop and mobile users through preview and dedicated site, as well as Microsoft Edge browser users (just click the Bing Image Creator icon in the sidebar to create an image or initiate a Bing chat).
Image Creator is only available in Bing’s creative mode, but will later be expanded to be crisp and balanced (what the previous update introduced as chatbot “tones”).
Microsoft says it applies “additional protection” to image synthesis to avoid creating potentially “harmful” content:
“When the system detects that a tooltip could create a potentially malicious image, it blocks and warns the user. We also make it clear that Image Creator images are AI-generated and add a Bing icon in the lower left corner of each image to indicate that it was created with Image Creator.”
Bing Image Creator only supports English for now, but others are in development.
Other AI features that Bing will get include Stories and Knowledge Maps 2.0. The first will provide “more engaging” content by offering videos and images in the results; and the second will provide interactive dynamic content, such as charts or graphs.
“We know from research that the human brain processes visual information about 60,000 times faster than text, making visual tools a critical way to find, create, and understand. Historically, search has been limited to images that already exist on the web. Now there are almost no restrictions on what you can search for and create, ”comments Microsoft.
Earlier, Adobe announced plans to add generative artificial intelligence to Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere Pro, and Google opened up access to its Bard chatbot.
