After integrating ChatGPT into the Bing search engine, Microsoft has now followed up by integrating other OpenAI products: AI image generator DALL-E 2.
It’s fair to say that the introduction of the “new Bing” with ChatGPT AI-powered chat functionality has been a huge success for Microsoft. Now, Microsoft Vice President Youssef Mahdi says in a blog post (Opens in a new tab)the tech giant is “taking the chat experience to the next level by making the new Bing even more visual.”
What it boils down to is using OpenAI’s own AI image generator, DALL-E 2, to form the Bing Image Creator. Basically, instead of using DALL-E 2 to generate images on its website, you can type prompts into the Bing search engine to receive AI-generated images from there using the same engine.
So how do you use Bing Image Creator? We’re about to show you.
How to use Bing Image Creator
Currently, there are two ways to use Bing Image Creator. Microsoft has already rolled out the image builder in the standard Bing chat box for people with access to Bing Preview, so we’ll cover that method quickly. If you don’t have access to Bing Preview (like me), we’ll show you the second method as well.
If you are using Bing Preview, head to bing.com/chat And Choose a creative conversational style.
How to use Bing Image Creator with Bing Preview
If you’re part of the Bing Preview, you can use the new Bing chat window to generate AI images, the same way you use to generate an AI chat response. Here’s how.
1. Head to bing.com/chat in Microsoft Edge
Open Microsoft Edge And Head to bing.com/chat (Opens in a new tab). Alternatively, from the Bing home page, Click Chat in the top navigation bar.

Oops… didn’t that work? Looks like you’re not part of Bing Preview. But don’t worry: you can still use Bing Image Creator. Here’s how…
How to use Bing Image Creator using bing.com/create
Fortunately, Microsoft has also released Bing Image Creator as its own standalone website, so you don’t need to be part of Bing Preview to create images and you don’t need to use Microsoft Edge. You won’t be using the Bing chat window here, but the results should be the same.
1. Go to bing.com/create
in any browser, head to bing.com/create (Opens in a new tab)then
2. Log in and enter a claim
Click on the profile iconand top right and Sign in to your Microsoft account (eg live, hotmail, outlook), then Enter a claim in the prompt bar And Hit create.
instead, Click surprise me to the randomly generated claim to fill the claim bar, then Click Create to generate it.
3. Wait for your photo
Wait for your image to be created. This may take a while, so you might like it Click the Boost button instead of Create Next time, speeding things up. NB: You have a limited number of reinforcements.
4. View, upload and share your photos
Four results will appear, all of them slightly different interpretations of your prompt. Click on the image To maximize it, then Click Share, Save or Download as you like.
NB: Clicking Save adds the photo to the Saved Pictures folder in your Microsoft account. To save to computer files, use Download.
5. Reinsert the router if necessary
If you don’t like your photos or they are not quite as you pictured them, Edit your prompt and be more or less specific. The more specific you are, the less interpretation the AI will take with your prompt, and vice versa. In this example, I didn’t want the sky to be gray, so I added “During sunset orange and purple” to my prompt. Click Create or Promote When you are happy and Repeat steps 3 through 5.
Here are my favorite results from Bing Image Creator. They are almost exactly what I had in mind when writing my claims, and the resemblance to my two greyhounds (which I wanted to recreate) is uncanny. My favorite image is that of a gray sky – dogs look a lot like mine, while foreboding rain clouds and patchwork fields epitomize the UK where we live.
