You might have heard of Dall-E or you might remember our article talking about it some time back.

Either way, it is now entering into a public beta test phase and, as such, is available for use at the price of 115 credit increments for 460 image “generations” per $USD 15.

For those of you that haven’t heard about it and didn’t read our first article, a quick refresher: Dall-E generates artwork based upon user text input. If that sounds crazy to you, you should see some of the creations it has come up with already. And if that also sounds incredibly powerful from a technology standpoint, you’re not the only person.

Now you can support the effort to make Dall-E even better than ever and without really breaking the bank.

Best of all is the fact that users get to keep whatever is generated by Dall-E, or as the company writes on their blog post detailing the public beta:

“Starting today, users get full usage rights to commercialize the images they create with DALL·E, including the right to reprint, sell, and merchandise. This includes images they generated during the research preview.

Users have told us that they are planning to use DALL·E images for commercial projects, like illustrations for children’s books, art for newsletters, concept art and characters for games, moodboards for design consulting, and storyboards for movies.”

There are some caveats that prevent abuse of the system, which Dall-E details on their website. Some of them include content filters and a tool to prevent photorealistic representations of the human face. There’s also a subsidized path for “qualified” artists that want to use Dall-E.
