AI Image Lab harnesses the power of generative artificial intelligence to allow you to create custom images for your site with AI in supported editors and page builders and the WordPress media library. It also includes an image editor that can modify images by using AI-based technology to add or change elements in the image, both for images that were previously AI generated and for non-AI photos and graphics that you upload to your media library. For more on editing existing images with AI, see this blog post.
The AI Image Lab plugin works with nearly every editor and page builder that integrates with the default WordPress media picker for image selection, including the block editor (Gutenberg), the classic editor, and the Divi builder.
Our service is currently in beta and 100% free to use for as many images as you need, within reasonable limits! After installing the plugin, you will need to connect it to a WP Zone account before you can start sending requests to the AI. Signing up for an account is free if you don’t have one yet!
How it works
AI Image Lab generates custom graphics based on text you enter to describe the images you are looking for (known as a “prompt”). You can provide one or more prompt phrases (or choose from some provided examples), which play an important role in the quality and usefulness of the output image. You can also specify some additional parameters related to the style and specifications of the image you want to create. Style types include Photo, Painting, Illustration, and Digital Art, each of which has multiple sub-options to further refine the type of image to be generated.
Each time you run a prompt, you’ll get six images to preview and choose from. You can select an image to automatically add it to your media library for use on your site, or run the generation process again to see another set of images.
Known issues and limitations
AI image generation is still an emerging technology and it is not perfect. There are some things it struggles with, such as human faces and features (especially for images with multiple people) and images containing text. You can generate multiple sets of images until you receive a suitable image, or use the built-in AI image editor to improve generated images.
The AI Image Lab plugin makes requests to using the AI Image Lab API, which is an external service provided by WP Zone (https://wpzone.co). You will need to set up a free account with WP Zone in order to use the service. Use of the service is subject to the terms and conditions displayed on the plugin admin page, and any other applicable terms and policies that may be published on the WP Zone website from time to time.
To help you get the most out of our plugin, we offer a comprehensive documentation that contains step-by-step instructions for installation and usage. We update our documentation regularly to ensure it remains up-to-date with the latest version of our plugin, including any new features or improvements.
AI Image Lab Documentation
- Click “Plugins” > “Add New” in the WordPress admin menu.
- Search for “AI Image Lab”.
- Click “Install Now”.
- Click “Activate Plugin”.
Alternatively, you can manually upload the plugin to your wp-content/plugins directory.
Once you have installed and activated the plugin, click The AI Image Lab item in your WordPress admin menu and follow the prompts to connect the plugin to your WP Zone account. Once connected, either visit the Media Library and click the Add New button, or select the option to upload in image in your content editor of choice. In both cases, you should have the option to use AI Image Lab to generate an image in the image upload area (provided the default WordPress media selection dialog is in use).
Are there are any fees or limitations to using the service?
The service is currently 100% free to use, and only subject to reasonable use limits that you are unlikely to reach with normal usage.
Do I need an API key?
There are no third-party API keys required to use AI Image Lab. You’ll just need to connect it to your free WP Zone account so that the plugin can talk to our servers.
