StarryAI has clients on multiple platforms, including iOS, Web, and Android.
Starry AI is a program that converts text into artwork, similar to the rest of these applications. However, unlike many others, it gives you much more precise control over specific elements, resulting in more personalized outcomes.
You begin by entering a random phrase and selecting one of two AI engines: Altair (creates dream-like imagery, more abstract) or Orion (generates “unreal reality,” frequently more cohesive).
Starry AI allows you to use extra credits to extend the AI’s life so that you may get a better end picture. You can also use credits to decide how closely the AI should stick to your text.
After that, you may use credits to expand the photo and obtain high-resolution AI artwork.
If you are short on credits, StarryAI allows you to get free credits daily.
Dream by WOMBO
Not every AI-based text-to-image art generator is affordable or accessible, but Dream by Wombo lets users create as much artwork from their text as they want in several styles.
Dream is first accessible as a mobile app on Android and iOS. The web version is introduced at a later date. You may also submit a source picture and Dream will utilize it as an art reference, which has been known to assist in the creation of something near to the user’s demands.
Jasper.AI first started out as a GPT-3 based AI text generator. They just recently stepped up their game and created an AI Art generator of their own, cleverly named Jasper ART.
You can create unlimited ART using its basic prompt input helper or go completely free form. If you are a blogger relying on Jasper to write blogs, Jasper.AI makes it extremely easy for you to directly embed images of your choice, generated by Jasper AI, right from the editor with a simple command.
Compared to other AI tools, Jasper Art seems to be a bit less refined and it can only create 500×500 resolution, which is okay for blogging but too small for anything else. However knowing how quickly the Jasper team can make things happen, I am sure Jasper AI will rise and become one of the key AI ART generators in the field.
Fotor is a user-friendly online photo editor that offers a wide range of features, including filters, frames, text, and stickers. You can also use AI to create stunning graphics and pictures. With Fotor’s AI image generator, you can easily turn any text into a beautiful work of art.

If you’re looking to get into the NFT creation business, Fotor’s NFT generator will be a helpful asset. However, compared to other AI tools, you might need to spend a little more time refining your input prompt just to get the right results.
DeepAI was founded in 2016 and has since been a frontrunner in AI image generation tools.
With DeepAI, you can create an infinite number of images- each one original. You have a lot of control over the final product by specifying colors, level of detail, and textures. For example, DeepAI will generate a resolution-independent vector image if you type in an illustration request.
In addition to StyleGAN and BigGAN, DeepAI offers the CartoonGAN tool, which Converts images into cartoons.
Compared to other tools, DeepAI focuses on creating realistic photos instead of arts. If you need photos instead of illustrations, DeepAI is a pretty good choice.
The free options were phased out by DeepAI, but you may get 1000 pictures generated for as little as $2. It’s not overly expensive, either.
Runway ML is a tool for generating virtual images based on machine learning models. You develop models that generate realistic image styles in various ways with the software. In addition, Runway ML can be used to create animations and 3D models.
Most recently, RunwayML has shifted to generating videos based on text input. Currently, it is the only product that can create videos from this list.
Runway ML includes a video editor tool that allows you to replace video backgrounds.
Runway ML uses relative motion analysis and out-of-the-box object recognition tools to help you analyze images or videos for specific objects.
Craiyon is a simple-to-use AI image generator. When Dall-e 2 was in closed beta, a similar tool caught people’s attention with the name of Dall-e mini. Dall-E Mini later changed its name to Craiyon.
Craiyon, with team members from Dall-E 2, is similar to what Dall-e 2 has to provide. While being as powerful as Dall-E 2, the Craiyon team makes it available as a free tool. So you get the power of Dall-E 2 but for free, such an excellent deal.
However, being free also means that optimization is less than desirable from time to time. Long waiting time is inevitable when the servers become busy. When comes to face generation, the result is usually less than desirable ( as you can see from the image below)
Using similar models, Craiyon and Dall-E 2 suffer similar issues, such as “weird” human face generation. But since you are getting this for free, there is little complaint.
