The new system comes with paid generations but allows to commercialize DALL-E-generated images.
OpenAI, the developers of DALL-E, a powerful AI system that can create realistic images and art from a text description, announced that the AI is now available in beta. The team has already begun the process of inviting 1 million people from the waitlist over the coming weeks to celebrate the occasion.
With the DALL-E beta comes a new Credit system that was introduced just before the announcement. With this new system, DALL-E users will receive 50 free credits during their first month of use and 15 free credits every subsequent month. Each credit can be used to get one DALL-E generation and variation prompts, which return four and three images, respectively.
Additionally, DALL-E users can purchase additional credits in 115-credit increments for $15 on top of the free monthly credits. Please note that free credits are available only for one month as they expire by the end of each month. Paid credits expire 12 months from the date of purchase.
OpenAI also granted DALL-E users rights to commercialize the images they create with the AI, including the right to reprint, sell, and merchandise. This includes images they generated during the research preview.
"We hope to make DALL·E as accessible as possible. Artists who are in need of financial assistance will be able to apply for subsidized access," commented OpenAI. "We are excited to see what people create with DALL·E and look forward to users’ feedback during this beta period."
