    Need help with writing the best prompts for AI art generators? We’ve got a blog for that!

  • Will Craiyon’s text-to-image AI always be free?

    We hope so! Paying members also help us continue researching text to image model technology, generative AI, developing, and building new AI models to ensure your Craiyon experience only gets better and better. For our free AI art creators, ads help pay for our (incredibly expensive) AI models behind the scenes.

  • Can you make images of higher quality?

    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?

    Is there anything you definitely DON’T want to see in your AI generated art? Like an awkward hat on your drawing of Mozart painted by Van Gogh? No problem. In the “Negative Word” section, simply type out concepts you’d like Craiyon to avoid, like “hat”, or “crocs”. 😆

    You can also influence color, light of your AI images by adding the words you do not want to the negative words.

  • How does prompt prediction work?

    Craiyon and ChatGPT work in cahoots to bring you the best AI drawing prompts this side of the web.

  • What do I do if I get the message "too much traffic?"

    If you’re struggling to generate AI art with Craiyon, fear not!

    Try pressing the draw button again. You may need to try a few times to generate ai images.

    Depending on traffic, we’re increasing our server count as quickly as we can so everyone can generate their images.

  • 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.

  • Craiyon rocks! How can I show my support?

    Yes it does! Your feedback is gold to us. From bugs to feature requests, we’re all ears, always.
