Creating Stunning Images with Google Gemini AI: Step-by-Step Tutorial
Google recently released its highly anticipated AI image generator using the Imagen Text to Image Diffusion Model, known as Google Bard. In this tutorial, we will explore what Google Bard has to offer and compare it to its closest competitor, Open AI DALL-E. Whether you are new to the world of AI image generation or a seasoned user, this article will provide you with valuable insights. So, let's dive right in!
Getting Started with Google Bard
To get started with Google Bard, open up your favorite browser and go to BARD.GOOGLE.COM. Click on "Try Bard" and scroll down through the Terms & Privacy conditions until you see the "I Agree" button. Click on it and then click "Continue". One of the great things about Bard is that it is 100% free, offering unlimited image generation. In comparison, DALL-E has limitations on the number of daily image generations.
Testing Out Google Bard
Let's jump right in and test Google Bard with a simple prompt. Generate an image of a futuristic car driving through a snowstorm. The first two images generated by Bard look quite impressive. The car designs indeed have a futuristic feel, and the snowy background captures the essence of a snowstorm. You can easily download the image by clicking on the "Download" button provided. However, the next two generated images seem a bit off. One resembles an Eggpod, while the other appears to be a giant truck. It's worth mentioning that all the images generated by Bard are currently 1536 by 1536 pixels, but this might change in the future. When compared to DALL-E generated images using the same prompt, DALL-E slightly outperforms Bard in terms of the futuristic style. Most importantly, DALL-E's snowstorm depiction is spot-on.
Limitations of Google Bard
Google Bard has certain limitations in place to prevent the creation of images that could be misused. For example, if you attempt to generate an image of Bart Simpson, Bard will not be able to generate it due to its image generation guidelines. However, in some cases, there might be glitches, and Bard generates an image despite the restrictions. It's important to note that Bard cannot generate images of kids or minors. Additionally, if you try to generate images of famous people or individuals with influence, Bard will not provide the desired results, as we witnessed with our attempt to generate an image of Elon Musk. On the other hand, DALL-E also has similar limitations, but it managed to generate a somewhat recognizable image of Elon Musk.
Artistic Offerings and Comparisons
Let's explore the artistic capabilities of Bard. Generate an image of New York City in the style of Van Gogh. The resulting images do have a resemblance to Van Gogh's artwork, capturing his unique style. However, when compared to DALL-E's creations, it's evident that DALL-E produces more vibrant and richly colored images.
Unleashing Your Imagination
Now, let's venture into the realm of cyborgs. Generate a beautiful, AI-powered cyborg in a realistic style. Out of the four images generated by Bard, the first one is visually pleasing, while the third one falls short. However, DALL-E surpasses Bard with an awe-inspiring and realistic image of a cyborg. The attention to detail is impeccable!
Exploring Logo Designs
If you are looking to create a logo, both Bard and DALL-E can be of assistance. Generate a logo design of a futuristic AI robot with vibrant colors and the text "Sejin AI". While Bard falls a bit short in creating a proper logo, the fourth image generated by Bard does feature the desired text. On the other hand, DALL-E impresses with a sleek design, vibrant colors, and a perfectly executed logo, with the exception of a missing "J".
Animating Your Creations
With all the stunning images generated, the next logical step is to bring them to life through animation. For a detailed tutorial on how to animate your creations, make sure to watch the accompanying video.
In conclusion, Google Bard offers an exciting and user-friendly AI image generation experience. While it does have some limitations, such as the inability to generate images of kids or famous individuals, it still provides impressive results. When compared to its counterpart, DALL-E, Bard falls slightly short in terms of artistic vibrancy and style but still holds its ground. Whether you choose Bard or DALL-E, both platforms offer unique opportunities to unleash your creativity and produce stunning images. Stay tuned for more exciting advancements in AI image generation!
