How to generate images from text with Python?

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Image Generation API in 5 minutes using Python and Eden AI Image Generation API. Eden AI provides an easy and developer-friendly API that allows you to generate images.

What is AI Image Generator API

Text-to-image generator, also known as AI Image Generation API, takes textual descriptions as input and generates corresponding images as output. It uses deep learning techniques, such as recurrent neural networks (RNNs) or transformers, to understand and interpret the text, and then generates visual representations that align with the given descriptions.

By learning from an extensive dataset of paired text-image examples during the training phase, the model establishes associations between textual information and visual patterns, enabling it to generate images that reflect the given descriptions.

The generated images can span a spectrum of complexity, ranging from simple objects or scenes to intricate compositions, depending on the capabilities and intricacy of the underlying model.

Get Started with Image Generation API

The first step is to install Python's requests package, that will allow you to call Eden AI API.

Next, you'll need to install Python's JSON package in order to read and print the result of the API request.

How to use AI Image Generator with Python

1. Get an Image Generation API Key on Eden AI

To perform Image Generation, you'll need to create an account on Eden AI for free. Then, you will be able to get your API key directly from the homepage with free credits offered by Eden AI.

2. Let’s generate images

Once you have imported packages on Python and got your API key, you will be able to generate images. You can access the list of Image Generation engines available on Eden AI to help you choose the provider that best suits your project and needs.

Here is the Python script you need to write in your notebook:

For example, we called two different Image Generation engines. Eden AI API will then return in its JSON response results of those providers.

Once the request is done, you will be able to get the result with this print:

You'll either get your image generated as an image URL or as a Base64 encoded file:
