OpenAI Image and Text Generator

The OpenAI Generator extension uses the OpenAI Image Generation API — colloquially known as DALL·E 2 — and the Text Completion API to generate results from a text-based prompt.


This extension provides 4 commands:

  1. Complete Text - uses the GPT-3 AI models to generate a text completion that attempts to match whatever context or pattern you gave it
  2. Create Image - uses the DALL•E AI model to generate new images
  3. Create Image Variation - uses the DALL•E AI model to create a variation on an image you upload from your local disk
  4. Create Image Edit - uses the DALL•E AI model to extend an image you upload using a mask

API Keys

In order to use OpenAI's APIs, you have to create an account and create a new API key. Once you have a key, paste it into the extension's settings.

Please make sure to familiarize yourself with the API's limits. While it's super fun to just start immediately generating images, the Create Image API is heavily rate-limited (you'll be limited to 10 images per minute, and 25 per 5 minutes) and even the Text Completion API can run up a bill if you push it hard enough.

When you create a free account, you're granted $18 worth of credits for 12 months. Once you blow through your free credits, you'll be blocked from making more requests until you enter billing information.


The DALL·E Create Image API is priced based on image dimensions:

1024×1024$0.020 / image
512×512$0.018 / image
256×256$0.016 / image

The GPT-3 Text Completion API is priced based on token usage:
