You can use artificial intelligence (AI) to generate original images from a task, based on a prompt, which is a description of the image you want.

Generate images

To generate images from a task, open the Content tab, click Add Content, then select Generate > Image


The Generate Assets dialog box displays.


To generate an image, do either of the following and click Create.

  • Enter a prompt in the Description text box that describes the image you want the AI to generate}.
  • Click upload if you want to use an existing image from which AI can generate similar assets.

AI generates four images based on your prompt or existing image.

  • Click Regenerate (icon) to regenerate a single image.
  • Click Regenerate (button; when no image is selected) to create a new set of images based on your prompt.

Better prompts result in better images from AI. Explore the following recommendations to create the perfect image.

Consider the subject matter

Consider your subject, style, and similar artists. For example, do you want your scene to take place on a mountain, in an office, or focus on a person?

Next, build a scene around the subject. What other elements should be shown in the image? For example, for a mountain subject, narrow the focus by asking the following questions:

  • What time of day should the image show?
  • Should there be people in the image? If so, what should they be doing?
  • What kind of mountain do we want?

The following image was generated by the prompt:  A person hiking in snowy mountains at sunset.


Style the image by type

AI often uses the most commonly used styles to similar prompts. However, you can refine your prompt to add style types such as the following:

  • Illustration
  • Realistic
  • Oil painting
  • Pencil drawing
  • Concept art

The following image was generated by the prompt:  A realistic photo of a person hiking in snowy mountains at sunset.


Style the image by artist

You can style an image by a particular artist by adding the artist to the prompt.

The following image was generated by the prompt:  A painting of a person hiking in snowy mountains at sunset in the style of Edward Hopper.
