2024's Best AI Image Creators: Top 4 Tools Revolutionizing Visual Content Generation

Oct 31, 2023

In a previous blog, I covered the pricing of the top 4 AI image-generation tools. In this blog, I’ll be going over the outputs of each platform using two prompts: 

  1. “A futuristic city with high-rise buildings and flying cars”

  2. “A parrot in the forest” 

The top 4 AI image-generation tools we are comparing include: 

  1. DALL-E

  2. Midjourney

  3. Jasper AI

  4. Kendal AI 


Comparing Outputs

DALL-E

Since DALLE-2 no longer offers a free trial, I was hoping to get access to DALL-E 3 through my ChatGPT Plus subscription. I did but I was out of luck. I tried a couple of times to generate images for both of the prompts above however it kept generating an error.

I then out found that Microsoft now offers image generation powered by DALL-E 3 through its Bing chat. Now this does work, however, as has been reported the wait times are long with people not even receiving their outputs at times — and I can verify that both cases are true. I’ve tried generating outputs using both of the above prompts, multiple times, and have had no results. 


Midjourney

To access Midjourney you need a Discord account and subscription. As I have highlighted in my previous article, where I compare the prices of these platforms, they no longer offer a free trial. Also, unlike all the other platforms you can’t just type in a prompt, remember to use /imagine to generate an image. 

For the first prompt, “A futuristic city with high-rise buildings and flying cars”, this is what I received:

For the second prompt, “A parrot in the forest”, this is what I received:


Jasper AI

With Jasper AI, you do have a 7-day free trial for which you do have to input your credit card details (so remember to cancel the trial in case you don’t like it, been a victim to a few unfortunate subscriptions).

For the first prompt, “A futuristic city with high-rise buildings and flying cars”, this is what I received:

For the second prompt, “A parrot in the forest”, this is what I received:


Kendal AI

Similar to Jasper, Kendal AI has a free plan. It’s a plan you’re automatically enrolled in with no credit card details as soon as you sign up. With the free plan, you receive 10 generations and 30 revisions.

For the first prompt, “A futuristic city with high-rise buildings and flying cars”, this is what I received:

For the second prompt, “A parrot in the forest”, this is what I received:


Additional Comments

  • The generations of these images were purely based on the text. What I mean by that is that platforms like Jasper and Kendal AI do offer customizability and personalization along with the prompts. 

  • So for Kendal AI, for example, you can choose between anime, comic book, 3D art, to Neon Punk.

  •  For Jasper, you can select the mood, medium (collage, ink, photography, etc), inspiration (Andy Warhol, Van Gogh, Picasso), style, keywords, and language.

  • DALL-E 3 through Bing or ChatGPT Plus doesn’t offer any personalization along with the input of the prompt. 

  • In Midjourney, you have the option to upscale the image quality and opt to vary the images.
