Today, we’re embarking on an adventure involving AI image prompts. Our goal is to take ordinary GPS coordinates and transform them into vibrant artworks. This will provide a fresh perspective on the world.
But we won’t be working with typical coordinates; instead, we’ll be using What3Words to convert locations into short three-word phrases. These phrases precisely identify locations all around the globe, and we’ll use them as the basis for creating AI-generated images that showcase pure creativity.
Curious? Stick around to learn how you can use your favorite locations to inspire AI art prompts.
Along the way, we’ll explore the capabilities of ChatGPT‘s prompt writing plugin called “perfect prompt.” I’ve been experimenting with random word prompts for a while, and I was pleasantly surprised by the creative potential they unlock. They allow me to think beyond my own ideas and explore new avenues. Each random prompt is like a puzzle, challenging to decode. Sometimes, the AI’s interpretation aligns with the words’ literal meanings, while other times, it produces abstract, unique, and thought-provoking results. This process also provides insights into the AI’s inherent aesthetic style. It’s important to note that no two AI image generators interpret prompts the same way; each has its distinct approach.
Working with random words isn’t just about creating art; it’s also about questioning our assumptions, challenging conventions, and venturing into the unknown. It’s a journey filled with surprises, excitement, confusion, and satisfaction, all bundled together.
Today, I’ll be using Mid-Journey version 5.2 for our creative endeavors. But if you’re using a different AI image generator, know that each one adds its unique touch to your creations.Today, we’re diving into the world of random word prompts. But what exactly is What3Words? If you’re unfamiliar with it, What3Words is a clever mapping tool that simplifies location sharing dramatically. It replaces intricate, lengthy numerical coordinates with concise and easy-to-remember three-word combinations. Instead of reciting a complex string of numbers, you can simply say something like, “Let’s meet at TreeRiverMountain.”
Before your imagination runs wild, please note that these three-word phrases are not incantations that transport you to a tropical paradise, as much as we might wish for that. What3Words precisely identifies any three-meter square location on Earth using just those three words. These word combinations are entirely unique; for instance, “TreeRiverMountain” Nature Prompts (daprompts.com) corresponds to a specific spot just outside of Paris. Thanks to this system, you can pinpoint locations as specific as your favorite spot on the sofa or the exact boulder atop a mountain where you pause to take in the scenery. What3Words has truly transformed our concept of location. When I first came across What3Words, I was fascinated. It intrigued me that even my beloved park bench had a distinct three-word address. What3Words converts navigation into text, and we have the means to turn that text into images.
Now, let’s see how AI interprets these random word AI nature prompts we got from daprompts. Let’s explore this unconventional prompt system.
To create prompts using What3Words, start by selecting a location. It could be an iconic landmark like the Colosseum in Rome or something personal, like your childhood home. Then, retrieve the three-word address for that location from What3Words. For instance, the Colosseum’s address is “bitters.bunny.milky,” and the Statue of Liberty’s is “planet.inches.most.” Now, take these three words and input them into an AI image generator, and let the AI work its magic. You’ll be amazed at how the AI interprets these prompts.
With your AI image generator, you can virtually stand on the summit of Mount Everest, explore the Tower of London, or wander through Santorini. If you’re not satisfied with the results from What3Words, you can take a few steps to the right or left, and the three-word combination changes, providing you with a fresh set of words. The order of the words matters in What3Words, but feel free to experiment and rearrange them in your AI image generator.
Up to this point, I’ve been entering three words into the AI image generator without providing any context or story, allowing the AI to work its magic independently. However, you can use these target words as a starting point for brainstorming your own prompts. It’s a classic brainstorming technique that involves finding connections between random words. This process stimulates creativity and generates unique ideas by associating unrelated concepts. Essentially, it harnesses the power of association to link disparate ideas, sparking fresh and innovative thoughts. Begin the process with three random words, and each of these words will serve as a unique seed for your image prompt.
Now, let’s explore each word’s visual aspects without confining ourselves to their literal meanings. Think abstractly and metaphorically and examine various interpretations. Next, combine these three distinct visual elements into a unified scene, where your creativity plays a vital role. Once you’ve formulated a basic scene, create your AI image prompt with detailed and descriptive language. Input your crafted prompt into the AI image generator and proceed.
Brainstorming with random words can be likened to an exciting journey, stirring up thoughts and sparking connections that you wouldn’t typically make.
If you require assistance in crafting prompts from three words, you can utilize ChatGPT. Request an AI image prompt using the words from your chosen location, or provide specific instructions for a more personalized result. You can even incorporate your location into the prompt to establish a unique theme or scenario. Presenting your request as a question can sometimes encourage the AI to think more creatively and provide a more precise response. I’ve been experimenting with a ChatGPT4 plugin named “Prompt Perfect.” This plugin allows you to enhance the descriptive quality of your prompt.
To install the plugin, initiate a new chat using ChatGPT4 and select “Plugins Beta.” Access the “Plugin Store,” where numerous developers create content for ChatGPT4. Currently, I’m trying out “Prompt Perfect.” After selecting it, exit the store. Including “Prompt Perfect” in your prompt will activate the plugin.
You can also employ Mid-Journey‘s “/Describe” tool to generate a prompt to try. Once you’ve found an image you like from your random prompts, input that image into Mid-Journey’s “Describe” tool. If you haven’t used the “Describe” tool before, it generates a prompt based on an image. While the resulting prompts may not closely resemble the original image, the AI often suggests prompts that are equally or even more intriguing. Some of my preferred prompts have emerged through the “Describe” tool.
What3Words doesn’t just simplify GPS mapping; it also sparks creativity by converting locations into memorable and unique word combinations. It’s like a secret language shared exclusively between you and your AI companion.
This exercise isn’t merely for enjoyment; it’s about approaching your AI image prompts with a creative mindset. You don’t need to compose a novel; just three words are adequate to set the AI on its imaginative journey. I’m excited to observe the remarkable images you create. Let’s collaboratively craft something extraordinary.
