Quite a shock... I played with Dall-E less than a year ago and the results were abysmal compared to these! I remember it seemed good mostly at abstract art or anything that purposefully avoided realistic human figures (e.g. when I told it "Picasso style" results were amazing, when I didn't... faces still ended up Picasso style). Must try again soon!
It would be great if it worked a bit like ChatGPT in the sense that you can ask it to modify its previous results with additional input, but I suppose that's not yet possible?
That's what they "promise" with a subscription to chat-gpt plus (20 $/mo) "early October". But it might just re-engineer the prompt, not really be a command-driven inpainting. We've yet to see it and the wording used was unclear.
