Importance of Prompt Engineering:
The quality and relevance of the image generated largely depend on the prompt provided. While Divi AI is powerful, it needs explicit, detailed instructions to produce the best results. By using specific adjectives, conditions, and constraints in the prompt, users can influence the AI to generate higher quality images that resonate with their desired theme.
Prompt Engineering Technique:
The prompt technique is a way to provide detailed instructions to the AI. By breaking down the desired outcome, you can guide the AI in generating the image that best suits your needs.
General Structure of the Prompt:
- Subject: What or who is the main focus?
- Action: What is the subject doing?
- Environment: Where is the subject?
- Details: Specific attributes, actions, or features you want in the image.
- Technical Constraints: Lighting, rendering styles, resolution, etc.
- Subject: A breathtaking gorgeous girl.
- Action: standing beside of the sea.
- Environment: tropical beach
- Details: mysterious smile
- Technical Constraints: beautiful day light, 32k photorealistic.

- Be explicit: The more specific you are, the better the results. Instead of saying “a man,” specify “a businessman wearing a sharp suit standing in a bustling city street.”
- Add emotional and descriptive adjectives: Terms like “mysterious,” “breathtaking,” or “intense” can drastically influence the mood and quality of the image.
- Use technical terms: Mentioning terms like “unreal engine,” “octane render,” or specific lighting conditions can guide the AI in producing a more polished final product.
Essential Factors to Consider for Photography Prompts:
Composition: How is the subject and its surroundings arranged in the photo?
Emotion: What feelings does the image evoke?
Proximity & Angle: Are we taking a close-up or a wide shot? From what perspective?
Depth of Field: How blurred is the background in comparison to the subject?
Lighting: Consider the source, intensity, and color of light. Is it coming from a natural source like the sun, or an artificial one?
Camera & Lens: The equipment you use can greatly affect the outcome. Decide between macro, telephoto, or wide-angle lenses.
Location: Is the shot indoors in a controlled environment or outdoors, influenced by elements?
Processing: Are you shooting digital or using film? If film, what type?
Historical Context: Knowing the year of the shot can add depth to the understanding of the image.
Publication Context: How and where the image was showcased can influence its interpretation.

A Deep Dive into Art Modifiers:
In the evolving landscape of digital art, the inception of DALL·E 2 by OpenAI introduces a range of artistic possibilities. By incorporating specific modifiers, one can fine-tune the AI’s output to manifest precise aesthetics and styles. Here’s a breakdown of some of the most influential art modifiers and their potential applications.
1. Art Modifiers:
- Detailed: Infuses the artwork with intricate nuances, enhancing its depth but can sometimes overwhelm the viewer with minuteness.
Example: “Detailed Renaissance portrait of a lady”
- Award-Winning Art: Invokes originality and creativity, drawing inspiration from exceptional artworks known for their ingenuity.
Example: “Award-Winning Art depicting a futuristic cityscape”
- Trending on ArtStation: Filters through the top-liked artworks from ArtStation, yielding results that resonate with the platform’s audience.
Example: “Trending on ArtStation fantasy landscape”
- Photorealistic: A delicate blend of stylization and reality. The output mirrors a tangible look while maintaining its artistic essence.
Example: “Photorealistic oil painting of a stormy seascape”
- Unreal Engine: A nod to the video-game realm, this modifier adds a synthetic touch with crisper and smoother visuals.
Example: “Unreal Engine render of a medieval marketplace”
- Fan Art: Perfect for enthusiasts, it captures the charm of fan-created content, often adding endearing elements.
Example: “Harry Potter Fan Art with a twist of steampunk”
2. Photorealistic Modifiers:
- Image Quality: Ranging from “4K/8K”, these specify the resolution and enhance the overall clarity of the output. Example: “4K nature shot of the Amazon rainforest”
- Lens Perspective: Modifiers like “15mm wide-angle lens” or “200mm lens” dictate the zoom level and the depth of the subject. Example: “85mm lens portrait of an elderly woman during sunset”
- Lighting: The lighting tone, from “Cinematic Lighting” to “Golden Hour Sunlight”, determines the ambiance of the image. Example: “Cinematic Lighting on a noir detective scene”
- Situational: Captions like “Nature Photography” help emphasize the context, refining the output to fit a specific theme. Example: “National Geographic shot of a leopard mid-pounce”
3. Product Design:
One of the AI’s standout capabilities is its prowess in ideating products for conceptual themes. For instance:
Example: “A perfume bottle that looks like a banana”
