Open AI had previously released its text-to-image generator DALL-E 2 only for a few researchers and experts to test it out. To get access, people had to sign up for a waitlist. This was because there were certain limitations and concerns that the company still had to address.
In May 2022, the company released an update where they announced they will be giving access to 1000 people every week to try out this tool after testing the limitations. Recently, the company announced that it will be inviting one million users on the waitlist to access DALL-E 2. This number is a huge leap from the number of people who already have access to the tool.
So now, people will be receiving 50 free credits in the first month and 15 free credits in the following months. Essentially, users will spend one credit for each prompt that they enter in the tool and it will generate four variations. With this, users can also purchase 115 credits for $15.

Open AI has also introduced features like Edit to make “realistic and context-aware” edits to their image generations. Collections will also enable people to save what they have created on the platform itself.
This release which will take place over the span of a few weeks will also give users the usage rights to the images that they generate, including commercial rights. This means that now you can use the generations on book covers, t-shirt prints, marketing brochures, etc.
To ensure safety and avoid misuse of the tool, the company has implemented certain measures. One of them is the rejection of uploading images that contain realistic faces. It has also worked on more accurate content filters that won’t allow users to generate images that violate the company’s content policy. The company has also mentioned a technique they have applied that reduces bias in the generation. The announcement says, “This technique is applied at the system level when DALL·E is given a prompt about an individual that does not specify race or gender, like ‘CEO’.”
While the company is trying to make DALL-E 2 more accessible to users, there are still some questions and hassles that will probably become clear once more people start using it.
