    Yes, we are constantly working on improving image quality. Make sure to use the "Upscale" option when there is an image you like to get a higher resolution. Our AI gets better every single day so the quality of the images will improve over time.

  • Negative words? What are those?

  • Are you related to DALL·E mini?

    Yes, Boris Dayma who trained the current version of the AI model, Pedro Cuenca who worked on the backend, and Suraj Patil are part of the Craiyon team.

  • What if my images don’t appear?

    We recommend trying a different browser first, or going incognito. Clearing your cache might also do the trick. If not, try restarting your phone or computer, or wait until a little later and try again.

    After restarting your device and the AI generated images still don't appear, let us know through an email at or let us a message on Discord and we'll look into it.

  • How does the AI model work?

    The model learns concepts from images. Each time you enter a prompt, it will create unique images based on its current knowledge and will try to combine the concepts from your prompt in a creative way. You can find more details of an earlier model in our W&B Project Report or the DALL·E mini model card.

  • Are there biases or limitations in AI generated art?

    Yes, seeing as it learns through existing images, it is exposed to societal prejudices and harmful stereotypes so can integrate these into its images. Limitations and bias in AI are still being researched and we're working actively on this subject. You can learn more in the DALL·E mini model card.

  • Can I use the images generated through Craiyon?

    Yes, as long as you respect the Terms of Use, feel free to use them as you wish for personal, academic or commercial use!

    Please credit for the images if you are a free subscriber.

  • Is there a Craiyon app?

    Not at the moment but we plan to develop one in the future.

    ⚠️ WARNING: If you find a Craiyon AI drawing generator app on Google Play or the App Store, it’s not us! There are more copycats out there than we can count, but the real Craiyon doesn’t have an app just yet. If we do, you’ll be the first to know!

  • What happened to the old model?

    For the nostalgic, you can access 🥑 DALL-E mega on 🤗 Hugging Face Spaces.
