Microsoft has officially added DALL-E 3 support to its graphic design tool, Microsoft Designer, in its latest update. DALL-E 3 by OpenAI allows users to create rich, detailed images from simple text prompts. This integration allows seamless incorporation of AI-generated artwork directly into Designer projects, enhancing creative possibilities.
Brand Kit Creation
Alongside the DALL-E 3 inclusion, Microsoft Designer now offers a feature to generate brand kits using a brief textual description. This tool is designed to assist users in quickly crafting a cohesive brand identity, complete with logos, color schemes, and suggested typography. On the Windows and Mac versions of Microsoft's software, this feature is accessible, with the caveat that usage currently requires a Microsoft email account and is limited to one brand kit at a time. However, an update to enable the saving of multiple brand kits is anticipated.
We are excited to announce that we have launched DALL.E 3 in Designer! 🚀

Access and Future Updates
The public preview version of Microsoft Designer remains free, although no concrete information is available about when the application will exit this phase. As the app transitions to general availability, there's the potential that some features may transition to paid access. Users have shown enthusiasm for the new additions, particularly as the integration with DALL-E 3 mirrors the capability already available in Bing Image Creator.
DALL-E 3 was introduced in September as an improvement to its predecessor, DALL-E 2. The newer model allows users to write longer, visually rich prompts, which drive the image generation process. It was initially integrated into the Bing Chat and Bing Image Creator, making Microsoft's platform the first to offer widened access to the model.
DALL-E 3 is a sophisticated AI system that synthesizes images from descriptive language, showcasing the powerful intersection of art and artificial intelligence in modern software. Brand kits, on their end, are essential for consistency in business materials and communications, reinforcing how these tools cater to diverse user needs, from personal projects to professional branding efforts. Microsoft's decision to integrate such features underscores the tech giant's commitment to leveraging AI to streamline complex creative tasks.
